Morning Smoothie:)

I am enjoying Morning Smoothies
I usually have a banana one with pineapple or strawberries or blue berries and I have just discovered Pea Protein it is an alternative to Whey Protein which is made from milk whey and as I am dairy intolerant and like to avoid dairy anyway due to the health problems associated with it which I don't need on top of all I have already.  I also add cinnamon that regulates blood sugar and counteracts the sugar load from the fruit.  
It makes me fuller for longer and I don't get those sugar lows like before.

Chocolate and Almond Gluten Free Cake

Not made it yet but planning to

Salt Pipe

I heard about the Salt Pipe ages ago but never tried it but I was reminded of it again and so bought one and it is really good looks very weird but works it has helped in clearing my sinuses but at present I have a cold so am using it to clear my nose and it helps I just have remember to use it more.  Not easy when you have ME and brain like mine lol

Will I ever learn?!

On Saturday me and my hubby and my niece and two other girls went to do this event
Well it was a really hot day and I had put on a long sleeved t-shirt thinking I would need it and then had to put  the charity t-shirt on top so I was boiling, we did a warm up of Zumba which I have never done and is not very ME friendly to say the least (even Pilates is strenuous for me) then we did the record attempt of 1 minute bouncing on the space hoppers, think there were around 700 people that did it. But after that there was an optional attempt of 200 yards bounce round the field, well I decided to try for it along with hubby when he said I am stopping I realised I had way over-done it and my eyes went all blurry and I had to go and sit on the grass and my hubby got me some water which helped and my eyes gradually cleared and I could stand up.
My dad has terminal cancer and I wanted to give something back to help the cause, I should have least got sponsored to do it doh, maybe next year
Here is me pre-bounce:)
