Moist Blueberry Banana Mug Cake and Raspberry Mango Smoothie

It’s been a minute since i posted something, been very busy and focusing on other parts of my life 🙂 I saw a picture on insta gram this morning of a mug cake with blueberries. No recipe attatched to it. But it made me go OMG i want this for breakfast today. So I made this super moist blueberry banana mug cake. WOW sooooooooo good. Yummy yummy yummy. I have tried different recipes and they have always ended up dry, but this one is ooey gooey 😀 For breakfast it was a little too sweet for me, my blood sugars spiked hahaha. So note to self next time I will leave out the sweetners.

I am still doing my dmotiv8tor challenge, yesterday I completed week 8. I am a little behind because I have been sick on and off. But I am determined to finish it, it will just take a few weeks longer then planned 🙂 I am so sore from yesterdays workout 🙂 I did day 5 legs and day 6 back before I went to work. So today will be a rest day.

Det har varit ett tag sedan jag skrev något, varit väldigt upptagen och fokusera på andra delar av mitt liv 🙂 Jag såg en bild på Insta Gram i morse av en muggkaka med blåbär. Inget recept fanns till den. Men det fick mig att gå OMG jag vill ha det här till frukost idag. Så jag gjorde en super saftig blåbär banan muggkaka. WOW sooooooooo goood. Yummy yummy yummy. Jag har provat olika recept och de har alltid blivigt torra, men den här är ooey gooey 😀 Till frukost det var lite för söt för mig, mitt blodsocker steg ganska mycket hahaha. Så nästa gång kommer jag inte använda sötningsmedel.

Jag gör fortfarande min dmotiv8tor utmaning, igår jag avslutade vecka 8. Jag ligger lite efter eftersom jag har varit sjuk till och från. Men jag är fast besluten att avsluta denna utmaning, det kommer bara ta några veckor längre än planerat 🙂 Jag har träningsvärk från gårdagens träning 🙂 Jag gjorde dag 5 ben och dag 6 rygg innan jag gick till jobbet. Så idag blir en vilodag.

Whole30 Day 23, Workout day 2 Week 3

Hiiiiiiiiiii I am doing great 😀 For the past 2 days tuesday and wednesday I had to take a brake from my Whole30 challenge, I went on a liquid fast to go to the dorctor for a stomach check up. Now I’m back eating solid food again, nice cause I was hungry hahahaha. Everything was good with my stomach YAY. I tend to have digestive issues so I think I need to include more probiotic foods in to my diet to help my gut flora. I will probably start with some natural supplement first. I will do some research and let you know what I find 🙂

On tuesday morning before my liquid fast started I went to the gym. I had more energy then monday so I could actually do the workout properly 😀
