Excellent Workout Drinks
During the working week I love to get out during the day to the gym. I swim most lunchtimes, do a quick workout at my gym after work, and sometimes... only sometimes... get on the treadmill before work! Doing all of this I feel great and utterly energised. I balance what I drink in order to maintain energy levels and workout to my hardest.
Coffee: About half an hour to an hour before I exercise, I drink a nice strong black coffee... it's normally my only one of the day (unless it's been an eeearlyyyy morning). This gives me a nice boost of energy and lets me really go that extra mile, whether it's in the pool or doing cardio, it really feels great!
Vitamin Water: When I'm going that extra mile and need a little bit of goodness...
Water: Always, there isn't a time you shouldn't be drinking water. I had kidney stones last year which were exacerbated from dehydration, it fucking hurt, so thus, I will not leave a room without a bottle of water!
Green Tea: I read somewhere that Green Tea is a brilliant post workout drink, it just keeps that metabolism of yours ticking over that little bit more. It really works... after hating the taste of green tea all those years ago, I've just learnt to love it!
All my love, Patricia
I'm a sucker for anything described as "mint choc."
Let's be honest, a scoby isn't particularly pretty looking.
As you know, I have a thing for coffee.
This smoothie is rich, creamy, and packed with summer goodness...
We need to have a conversation about this indulgent winter warmer.
I have a repertoire of Bolt Holes, some secret, some shared...
After just meeting Andrew some time back, I texted him to ask if he'd like anything from Starbucks and I'd pick it up for him. I'm not even sure why I was going into Starbucks, it must have been as a reason to have to communicate via BBM. He wanted a "3 shot skinny ice mocha with less ice". Pardon. I'll never forget that, it was nearly a decade ago and my taste in coffee was simply sidelined for red bull.
Most chilly mornings this week, the coffee has been swapped up for this gem of a combination. It's so simple, so easy, and so damn good.
This isn't news, I love coffee.
Okay, I'm dependant.
Lets say it together quarfeeee...
