I firmly believe that if Adele and I got to hang out for a day we’d be firm friends for life. I adore her as much as she adores Beyoncé, plus sprinkles and a cherry on top.
In the last few days I have felt like Leo aboard that giant steamer – full of spunk and excitement. This is the gym’s fault. I know Phil is probably sick of listening when I tell him about every minute and every stretch of my workout and how my muscles are aching and how good I feel. One thing he’s not sick of; our sex life. HELLO! That has definitely stepped up a notch since I got all energised and loving of exercise. I feel like I’m 20-odd again and full of vitality! Why didn’t I do this sooner?
I’ve only gone and signed up to a gym. I know. After my boyfriend picked himself back up off the floor he high-fived me and slapped my ass.
This Whole30 feels like its going way faster than the last one. It just feels normal now, like I’m just eating. I don’t overthink it all (which is new for me). Before the last Whole30 and this one I cleared all my cupboard and fridge. It’s nice to know I can just go for the food in my house and eat it, no guilt. I definitely recommend this, especially on your first time – it’s so easy to fall off the wagon if there are quick, easy treats at arms length. I bought an immersion blender this week. So shit got exciting. Hello, Paleo Mayo! If you’ve missed the previous posts, weeks one, two and three are here, here and here.
Crispy, crumbed chicken has long been a firm favourite of mine. So as soon as I nailed the paleo mayonnaise I decided I needed something scrumptious to dunk in it, and what goes better than crispy chicken and creamy mayo?! I had tried making paleo mayo once before but failed miserably when the ingredients didn’t emulsify. On my second attempt, following Michelle’s strict instructions and recipe I had huge success! Phil is a huge mayo fan so was over the moon. You can find the recipe at the above link. For the chicken, check it out below:
