Health & Fitness ~ Chicken Curry


*pictures from @fitnessplace instagram

About three years ago I started my fitness journey, which I’ve spoken about in a previous post. This was 100% diet based. I lost around 3 stone which I am so happy about. That brought me from almost 13 stone to just under 10 stone which also gave me a healthy bmi.

I was always very shy and often had panic attacks in the gym. My sister and I started doing TRX and since then, I’ve never looked back.

I’ve now started to go to the gym 3-4 times a week and I love it! I’m mainly doing classes and weight lifting. A lit of women seem to think weight lifting will turn you in to the hulk- believe me, that won’t happen. I’m learning to cook healthy meals from scratch.

I won’t lie, I’m currently having a bad time on the diet end. I’m eating well, cooking all my breakfast / lunches and dinners from scratch, however I find myself gorging on crap as well! Mainly when I’m stressed in work. This I really need to work on.


For the next 3 months, I’m going to try my very best to continue going to the gym 3 times per week and get my diet in check. I would love to lose around 8lbs and tone up. I’m considering a weekly blog, posting my favourite recipes from that week as well as my favourite workouts.

This week’s recipe is a super easy chicken curry.
* ingredients vary depending on your tastes and how many you’re cooking for

Chicken breasts
Red pepper
Green pepper
Curry paste
Curry powder
Tin chopped tomatoes
Mango chutney

Chop all veg and your chicken.

In a bowl, mix together yourΒ  curry powder, curry paste, tinned tomatoes and mango chutney.

Dry fry (or use a light cooking spray/ extra Virgin olive oil) your chopped vegetables and chicken. Once the chicken is almost cooked, add your mixture and bring to a boil. Once it’s boiled, reduce to a low heat and simmer while covered for around 40 minutes.

I had this on its own for my lunch today however I would advise a small portion of rice!

Bon apetit!
