Festive Friends date

Time and good friends are two things that become more valuable the older you get.

Instead of buying Christmas gifts for each other, my friend Claire and I opt to have a festive friend date instead. So we can actually spend time together catching up – usually food is involved ๐Ÿ˜‚. Yesterday we headed to one of our local coffee shops Sweethart, Bistro, Bakery & coffee shop
in Consett . Hands down the best Mint hot chocolate I have ever tasted and seeing as it is one of my favourite festive drinks, I have tasted a few! .

So be sure to get some festive dates in the diary catching up with friends and family ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ„.


Day 2 – A morning stretch

Happy 2nd December,

If you follow me over on Instagram- @littlemisfitjojo 

or our Facebook page  lilmisfit1 

you can check a 5 minute Stretch workout I have shared. Itโ€™s a great wake up for the body, or could even be used as a wind down at the end of the day. ๐Ÿ’•

for some reason it wonโ€™t let me share it on here! So I need to speak to my Tech wizard friend! . 



Day 3 – Healthy Breakfast Recipe

Day 3 of December and today Iโ€™m sharing one of my current favourite breakfasts – Baked Oatmeal ๐Ÿ’•.

I got the recipe after watching @gracedenny make it on her YouTube channel . There are so many differences variations of this on Pinterest so check them out .

Itโ€™s so easy to make and you can make it in advance to have over a few mornings!. Perfect for those busy days .

Now guys I really do just chuck it all in ๐Ÿ˜‚. I donโ€™t really measure things out . I use a cup and a half of porridge oats and put in some baking powder – I use the sachets so I just use one of those . Then in another bowl , I have an egg , then add in a couple tea spoons of coconut oil , a couple spoonfuls of almond butter , a teaspoon of Vanilla extract then either drizzle in honey or maple syrup- which ever I happen to have in and then mix all those together and then add in the Oats and baking powder.

I then pop it in the oven on about 180 and bake did around 18 minutes.

It can be served warm or cold and I add natural yogurt and berries to mine . Itโ€™s so yummy !.

Let me know if you make it too and how you make yours – you really can make it your own . I did add in chocolate buttons once whe I had some left over Halloween treats and that was nice though not quite so healthy ๐Ÿ˜‚.

A Festive Christmas bucket list

Happy 1st December Mis Fitters ๐ŸŽ„. So have the Advent calendars been opened yet?.

You guys know I absolutely Love Christmas but it can feel a little (or indeed a lot) like being caught up in a total whirlwind of shopping, wrapping , social events etc. We forget to hit the pause button and slow down, put down our phones and just enjoy the magic of the season ๐ŸŽ„. And workouts and nutrition can just fall so far down the list , but itโ€™s during busy times like this , itโ€™s more important than ever to take time out of your day to Take care of yourself. That way you have the energy and letโ€™s face it the patience ๐Ÿ˜‚ and motivation to tackle everything and everyone else!.

So throughout December, Iโ€™ll be sharing ideas and inspiration for us all to take time to move our bodies but also take time out to rest too and of course enjoy some festive fun.

So today why not write a bucket list of the fun festive adventures you would love to do – maybe have a Christmas Movie marathon or take a festive walk – just a list of all the things you love and have fun ticking them off throughout December! ๐ŸŽ„.

Do let me know what is on your festive bucket list , comment below and we can share some festive fun ideas and inspiration! 

Our Train advent calendar is from @shopmatalan though I did get it last year, Iโ€™ve filled it with red, mint and white LIndors ๐Ÿ’•.
