We Lost Our February To A Chest Infection

I say it a lot but I really hate winter and cooler weather. It brings with it all the brilliant germs that seem to hang around for a while. In fact this time we lost an entire month to the nasty buggers. It started at the very end of January which feels like a life time ago now. P1 began …

Can You Rely On Fitbits?

You can’t deny the popularity of the Fitbit. It has raced onto the scene and become a brand and device that is used as a shorthand term for this whole sector of wearable fitness technology, much the same way as iPad is used as a catch all term for tablet computers and ‘Hoover’ for vacuum cleaners.  In 2015 alone it …

Kids Fun At Home with I MUNE NURTURE

We’ve been experiencing some pretty awful behaviour with P1 lately. I’ve been doing a lot of research about it because I desperately want to help her to control and understand her emotions as well as understand them myself. This weekend I’ve especially been changing the things we do. Normally we like to use the weekend to recooperate after a busy …

My Detox With Slimming Solutions Teatox Review

I am still nowhere near my weight goal or my body image goal despite what people think and receiving the compliments is fantastic but it doesn’t stop how I see myself in the mirror and in photos. I don’t want to accept my body the way it is and I do honestly feel like that but I struggle with motivation …

Fitbit Flex Review

When I started my weight loss journey I was a bit of a virgin to anything health related and I certainly wasn’t bothered by how many steps I took each day. Gradually I’ve watched my weight slowly come down and I’ve been feeling far more energised recently. I’ve been wearing a Fitbit Flex for nearly two months now and I …

FlipBelt Nuclear Yellow Review

I stopped running for a little bit the past few weeks. Life and blog work has been super busy, I wanted to focus on the children a bit more and enjoy everything. But with the weather so beautiful I have started running again and have been using my new FlipBelt too. When I first started running I never even thought …

Arla Big Milk Review

Milk seems to be the bane of my life at the moment. I seem to spend so much time making formula milk for P3 and receiving demand after demand for “a big one milk bottle” from P2. Then there’s P1 who really should be having more for her bone strength and growth. P2 is addicted to cows milk in a …

Journey To Fit with the Fitbit Flex

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over …

My Sunday Photo – 10/05/2015

I have taken a real back seat on the healthy eating and exercise thing which is certainly not what I wanted to do as I have a dress to fit in for a wedding in two weeks. But I have and I’m quite ashamed really. Yesterday, the postman delivered to me two exciting fitness related things for me; my new …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 12

I started my weight loss journey 12 weeks ago nearly 13 this Thursday. I haven’t updated for a month and that’s mainly because the Juice Plus Journey, healthy eating and exercise has sort of gone to pot. Ok, I’ve still been exercising usually every day for 10 minutes or every other day so that I’ve stuck to. But for nearly …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 8

My weigh in this week was:   Ive finished 8 weeks of Juice Plus. I’m actually really disappointed with my results and I can only blame myself.
