I made another soup tonight and it was mega! Not too salty and the perfect vegetable flavour.

All it took were a couple of carrots, a couple of potatoes, half a head of celery and half an onion. They were chucked into a saucepan with a little oil and simmered for about 20 minutes, after that I added in about half a litre of vegtable stock. That all boiled away for maybe another 10 mins, before I checked it. It's possible to tell when the veg is ready because it will crush under the pressure of a fork.

Then comes the fun part - blending!! I have a hand held wand blender and it makes everything so easy and tidy, hardly any splashes to date! 

This morning I had a class all about teacher training courses to go onto after I have finished this degree. It sounds like an amazing opportunity, and one I really want to take, but it's going to be so hard to actually do! Our lecturer was explaining all the requirements that we to fulfil, I have most of them but the important thing now is getting in lots of classroom based experience. I think I know what I'm going to be doing with my time off this summer !!

On a more fitness based note I have started the one hundred push upstwo hundred sit ups and two hundred squats challenges. This may seem like alot but I will only have to do one or maybe two exercises a day and i think it will be feesible. 
I love these challenges, they motivate me and give me a mini goal for every day of the week!

Here are some lovely photos of me demonstrating my poor form and lets hope I look and feel a bit better than this in 6 weeks!!

I hope you have all had a good day :) 

This soup looks simple and delicious!!! Yum!
