September has been a funny month, there were highs, lows, plenty of excitement and some amazing surprises. We have been very busy with a big new project that we have just officially kickstarted, Nefeli Nine Retreats. This has been in the pipes for a while now and is now officially official! We will still be running plenty of camps and events through Crossed Feet Sports Camps, so don’t worry!

Workout

Mobility warm up

Strength: 3 sets of max reps pull ups – be sure to take a good break in between sets.

WOD

4 Rounds

5 Lunge Complex (Lunge clock – forward, side, back on both legs) straight into an inch worm, and a burpee!

16 Tuck Sit Ups

Emilio and I did this last week and it’s fun, challenging and slightly different. For an extra challenge try doing the pull ups with a soft ball in between your thighs!

Food Glorious Food

Turkey Chilli!! We had a few days of very cool weather last week so we thought it was time to start cooking something that would warm us up a little more. This is a super simple but delicious recipe. I like to make extra and pop it in the freezer.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Olive Oil

  • 2 Small Onions

  • 4 Garlic Cloves

  • 1 Bay Leaf

  • 1/2 tbsp Cumin

  • 1/2 tbsp Oregano

  • 2 tsp Chili Flakes

  • 1.5kg Lean Turkey Mince

  • 2 Cans of Cannellini Beans

  • 500ml of Chicken Stock

  • Salt & Pepper


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat a large heavy bottomed pot over medium flame. When hot, spray with oil.

  2. Add onions, garlic, sauté about 5 min.

  3. Add meat and cook, breaking it up until white, about 5 minutes. Add salt, chili flakes, cumin, oregano and cook for 2 minutes.

  4. Add beans and stock, cook uncovered about 10 minutes.

  5. Lower heat and cover, simmer for about 45 minutes, mixing occasionally.

  6. Serve with some Greek yoghurt, sliced avocado, jalapenos and a sprinkle of fresh parsley.

Other Fun Stuff

·         Our amazing friends from Switzerland visiting for a long weekend! We managed to squeeze in wakeboarding, wake surfing, hiking, fresh fish on the beach, birthday cakes, and even a little bit of touristing!

·         Preparing for and launching Nefeli Nine – a major part of this has been regular hikes which we are both really enjoying. It is a fantastic way to get out a bit more and explore.

·         Doing a handstand workshop with Mark Robberds – a great yoga teacher who we have been following for quite a while and who happened to be in Greece for a workshop!

·         We organized a clean up at Fitness Art, the gym where Emilio works, to mark World Clean Up Day 2018. There is a park in front of the gym which we frequently run through.

·         Emilio has started a new bodyweight class, every Tuesday at 6pm at Myrtmigi Studio!
