For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you will know that I have become somewhat of a health freak. In my mission to lose the chub I have become rather goal orientated, I have a new love for healthy foods, and I have even found that I am eating so many different foods that have been specifically intended for Vegan’s. Now although I will never be Vegan, as I love all food way too much, they do have some amazing food’s and recipe ideas that just work so well. Of course I add my own twists and usually always add meat!
I wanted to take this seriously as after working so hard over the past 9 months I really wanted to take my training up a notch.What I adore about these guides is that the hard work of the plan detailing is done for you. I have been going to the gym since July 2014, and yes I have lost weight, but I hadn’t seen much change in terms of muscles coming into their own. After 10 weeks of following these guides, incorporating the food into my daily life and primarily only eating good wholesome meals, doing as Kayla’s guides advise with my exercise routines and lifting weights at the gym, I have come a long way in the 10 weeks I have been doing it. I can feel it, and I can SEE it!
The Shock Absorber Active Zipped Plunge Bra can be purchased from Figleaves for £25.00.
Of course alongside eating 3 meals a day I still indulge in snacks. How can I not? Where possible I have been taking inspiration from Deliciously Ella, a health food blogger who is a complete inspiration to me! Following her fabulous smart phone app has allowed me to cook up a storm at home, and even a very tasty healthy Banana Crumble!
When I don't have time to cook my own snacks up I have been really impressed with Bounce Energy Balls. Bounce Energy Balls are a great little snack to indulge in between meals to boost your energy levels, which of course makes them a great pre-workout treat, or even to replenish your protein after a gym session. They come in a great selection of flavours and I haven't yet tried one I don't like, and for someone like me who has a rather sweet tooth, these really do hit the spot! I don't even find myself craving chocolate these days (She says!), and if I do the Cacao and Mint Bounce Ball is a satisfying alternative!
Not to mention Bounce Energy Balls are also:
- Energising and Nutritious
- Tasty and convenient
- Filling and satisfying
- Packed with good nutrients
- Gluten free

Hair loss can have a huge impact on a person's confidence, bigger than you would think. Luke really has looked into so many different avenues when it comes to this particular issue, but it is also something that he tries to shrug off, and to the rest of the world he will come across as though it doesn't bother him. Behind closed doors this is a different story, so I am really looking forward to pushing forward with the Theradome Helmet. For Luke to halt his hair loss, and help re-build hair growth, it would be like all of his Christmases had come at once, and I know that it would do wonders for his confidence.
I will be giving an update as to how Luke is getting on in August, but in the mean time you can keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter where we will be sharing further content.
The Theradome Helmet retails at £649 and can be ordered directly from the Theradome website.
You can find out more about Theradome over on their website, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube channels.

Last week we were invited along to a very special event, the grand opening of the brand new Thomas Land Expansion at Drayton Manor. Leo was thrilled when he discovered our plans to go along, we have visited Thomas Land quite a few times in recent years, and we have some fantastic memories of our time there. It was where Leo went on his first rides, his very first Roller Coaster at just turned 2 years old! That day was such great fun from start to finish, and my cheeks ached from simply laughing as much as I did.
You can enjoy a snippet of our day below! Leo's face on the Ben 10 Roller coaster was rather special!
