Friday night was double date night.
I had my last resistance training of Week 2 in my new gym outfit from Fabletics, and I was feeling pretty good about myself! Fabletics for those who don’t know is company co-founded by Kate Hudson specialising in gym wear. You get your 50% off your first complete workout outfit and there are some really great pieces to choose from so it is well worth checking out!
Workout over I put on my glad rags and we headed into London.
The chap and I like good food and good restaurants. I had heard good things about Fera at Claridges, it opened it’s doors in May and apparently had already been Michelin-starred. We decided to check out to see if it lived up to the reviews.
We were then presented with nibbles.
Also a pre-dinner nibble, this was rabbit in a beautifully light crisp ball that was simply delicious, Paul and I happily finished off the fourth ball as Laura did not want to eat Thumper… I apparently did not share the same sentiments.
Bread then arrived and all I can say was that it was heaven on a plate. The butter melted straight into the warm bread and then proceeded to melt in my mouth.
For main I choose the Cornish lamb with potatoes and onions, garlic chives and apple vinegar.
We topped off our evening with teas and nibble cake bits. I had the jasmine tea which came with a charming timer. Once I had poured the hot water in my pot I was to turn the time and wait until it was done to pour the tea.
Completely satisfied we headed out through the gorgeously decorated halls of Claridges complete with their cases of jewelled goods and made our way into a waiting taxi with the promises of more lovely double date evenings to follow.
I was worried how I would feel with having such an extravagant meal when I am on Kayla Itsines. However, I woke up the next day feeling refreshed and happy and went right back into my last Week 2 session. It is nice to know I can still go out and enjoy myself without feeling I have ruined any progress with my regime.
