Over the Easter holiday, I was in North Yorkshire visiting family. It's a rural area and farming is in my blood - so it was lovely to look out of the window and see fluffy lambs dotting the fields. Although, also a little heart-breaking that I wasn't in my wellies helping out! I did, however, give my Nan a helping hand in her garden. I'm jealous of her rhubarb! A highlight of my time away was definitely my cousin's wedding. It was such a beautiful day, filled with the perfect mix of laughter, champagne and dad dancing!
I managed to stay away from Easter eggs on my break, but couldn't keep my distance from my Nan's baking. Since my return I've made a conscious effort to eat clean. Shortbread, cupcakes and flapjack have been replaced with Nakd bars and smoothies. I've been trying out Bootea's 14 day teatox alongside the clean eating and I feel so much better in myself. It's really hit home and made me realise how big of a part nutrition plays on my mood and well-being, both physically and mentally. I've also just finished the Blogilates Beginner's Calendar in time for my holiday next week. I've done Cassey's workouts before, but feel so proud of myself that I've managed to keep up with a whole month of her plan. It's safe to say, you'll be hearing from a happier and healthier Catherine from now on!
