I have been away from my home for a few weeks, and it's highlighted how important routines are. I have felt I've gained softness/weight/fat, and it's because my eating and exercise routines have changed.
So now I need to get back to where I'm happier. I usually start with surrounding myself with motivation. Flicking through some #fitspo on instagram and buying a magazine. I know that #fitspitation has received some flack recently, being compared to #thinso and eating disorders (or triggers to). However, I follow some great healthy and strong men and women, who I believe are great role models or inspiration.
Last night I made courgetti (courgette spaghetti) and seemed to inspire a couple of people on instagram to go and buy a spirialiser! So, what is courgette spaghetti? You use a gadget called a spirialiser to create spaghetti strips of your veggie of choice. Courgette doesn't have a taste in this way - I was asked if it was bitter, but I'd say it was like pasta, just acts as a base for whatever flavour you put on top. It has the texture of al dente spaghetti, and I cook it by just lightly boiling it for a few minutes.
