Get Fabulous Feet in Time For Spring


We all know the importance of looking after ourselves. A healthy diet, exercise, good quality sleep and a good skincare routine amongst others are crucial. However there’s one thing that tends to be overlooked when we think of taking care of ourselves and that’s our feet. Chances are you have a hand cream in your bag and regularly moisturise your hands and nails, but when was the last time you pampered your feet? When they’re trapped in shoes and socks all day and all of our weight is places on them when we walk or run, they’re in need of more attention than anywhere else. With warmer sandal weather right around the corner, chances are you want to get them looking their best anyway. Here are a few ways you can care for your feet and get them up to scratch.

Exfoliate and Moisturise
The skin on the bottom of our feet is a little thicker which is normal, however it shouldn’t be leathery or hard. If yours is, it’s time to take action before they crack, bleed and feel painful. Use a pumice stone to buff off hard skin, you can also soak them and slather them in moisturizing foot lotion. One tip is to apply lots of lotion, wrap your feet in cling film and then put socks over the top. Go to bed like this, and by the morning it will be soaked in leaving your feet moisturised.

Get a Massage
Foot massage is beneficial for the entire body, because many long nerves in the body end in the feet. Stimulating these nerves can provide benefits to lots of areas of the body. It’s relaxing and releases endorphins meaning it makes you feel good, and if you’re on your feet all day it can relax the tense muscles of the feet. You could practice self massage techniques, rope in a loved one or go to a spa for a treatment.

Wear Suitable Shoes

Sky high stilettos might make you feel tall and gorgeous and look killer, but they’re not doing your feet any favours. It’s not to say you should ditch all of your favourite shoes, but do wear them for occasions where you won’t be walking or dancing all night. They’re much better suited for a meal out than a night on the dancefloor! Shoes that offer good arch support and are cushioned are crucial for people who work on their feet all day, alternatively you could add something like Biopods insoles to them for extra comfort and support. The wrong footwear can cause corns and calluses, as well as neck and back strain from the way they cause you to walk.

Get a Pedicure
As well as looking nice, keeping your nails trimmed and healthy is important for overall foot health. Give them a trim, file them and paint them with your favourite nail polish. You could even wax your toes too, this isn’t overly painful and keeps your feet looking their best when you get your sandals out!

Be in the Picture Weekly Favourites - 3

Welcome back to the Be in the Picture weekly roundup. Once again there were lots of wonderful pictures shared on instagram and I struggled to pick just a few favourites. I could have featured so many. If you missed the last roundup you can catch up with it here, Be in the Picture weekly favourites - 2.


For those of you that haven't heard of #beinthepicture, it is an instagram hashtag that myself and Alana from Baby Holiday created. It is designed to encourage you to get in-front of the camera as opposed to behind it. I used to always be the one taking the pictures and I was never in them myself. 

You can use the hashtag on any pictures that feature you whether that be fashion, parenting, travel, with your partner etc. You name it, we want to see it.

My favourite photo from last week was by Kate at https://www.instagram.com/poutinginheels/. The picture is absolutely stunning. She looks beautiful but the caption stood out for me too. It's all about being able to see your own beauty. Kate did an instagram challenge called #seeingmyownbeauty and this picture was the last one she posted in the challenge. 





Day 7: #seeingmyownbeauty My one week Insta challenge is now coming to an end & so it seems only right that I share one of my most favourite photos of me, taken at the end of my Monica Bellucci shoot by my good friend @masque_photography (See day 2 of the challenge). I love how it captures a softer side to me & my husband loves it so much it’s up on our wall! 😊 I’m still wearing the heavy makeup from the shoot but my hair is my own & dishevelled and I’m not trying to be anyone else but me. πŸ˜„ It’s taken me a very long time to get to a place where I can see my OWN beauty & appreciate what I have. To not feel jealous or threatened by anyone else. But here’s what I have learned along the way: 🌟 Seeing your own beauty begins with you. 100 people could tell you how bloody marvellous you are but if you don’t believe it, it won’t make a jot of difference. You have to appreciate your OWN beauty and as corny as it sounds, love the skin you’re in. 🌟 Comparison is the kiss of death to confidence & self esteem. Stop comparing yourself to anyone else, don’t try to be someone you’re not and remember that what you see in the media & on billboards is not real. 🌟 You have to surround yourself with good people who make you feel beautiful! And believe them when they compliment you. (And if your partner doesn’t think you’re the most gorgeous woman alive, well you may want to trade him in.😜) 🌟 There are NO rules when it comes to beauty. Just do whatever works for you and what feels GOOD. Learn what suits you & never be afraid of experimenting. 🌟 Beauty isn’t limited to an age or a dress size. You can be beautiful at any age or any size. It’s all down to confidence and treating yourself in in a kinder, healthier and more appreciative way. ❤️ Last challenge!: Share one of your favourite photos of yourself, explain why you love it and talk about one thing you can do differently to help you see your own beauty more. . Thank you to everyone who’s supported or taken part! I hope it may have inspired at least a few of you to own YOUR beauty and love yourself more, in a world which continues to make all women feel ‘less than’. 😘
A post shared by Kate | Pouting In Heels (@poutinginheels) on

The next picture is by Emma at https://www.instagram.com/emmaand3/. Just look at that beautiful, happy, natural smile. 






Beth at https://www.instagram.com/twinderelmo/ shared this lovely photo of her and her twin girls. The colours of the sky are fab and I do love Mickey Mouse ears. I think every parent can relate to being excited about not having to do freezing cold school runs during half term too. 




Last up is this adorable snap by https://www.instagram.com/makedoandpush/. I love everything about it. It's such a precious moment. I'm also obsessed with their twinning coats.




My own favourite picture that I shared was this one of hubby and I. We managed to get 3 date nights in during one week which is more than we had all year last year. We had such a lovely time together and were able to reconnect. 




Make sure you join in with #beinthepicture over on instagram and also follow it to see everyone's pictures.

Put Your Health On The Right Track


We can all admit that our health takes a little turn for the worse every now and then. There’s so many things that can actually put it on the wrong path, so many social influences to lead us astray. Plus, when you think about actually living a healthy lifestyle day in, day out, it seems like a bit of a chore. It is hard to think to yourself, ‘no, don’t binge eat and drink all weekend, stay in and eat a salad’. But living a healthy lifestyle isn’t actually as hard as you may think. All you need to do is have a bit of self restraint in a few areas, and make sure you’re giving yourself a treat every now and then. A healthy lifestyle is only hard to lead if you make it that way. If you want to know how to make it easy, have a read of the tips below.


Restrictions

Giving yourself some restrictions and limitations is the only way you’re going to keep your health on the right track. Firstly, you need to be thinking about a bigger scale, and what might really be damaging your health in the long run. For us adults, it is alcohol consumption. There are so many people who turn to a class of wine, or a refreshing bottle of beer at the end of the work day, and a few too many at the end of the weekend. Years of doing this is going to reduce your liver and kidney function massively, and promote weight gain. Try putting yourself on an alcohol detox for a while. Rather than reaching for a bottle of something for a bit of comfort, run a nice hot bath and have a read whilst letting your troubles melt away. If a bath doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, then you definitely might not like the next one. The gym is the perfect outlet for relieving some stress from the day. A lot of people struggle to get the motivation to go, but after a while you will find yourself in a routine, and you will find it easy to get rid of all the stress from the day when you’re working out. Plus, you’ll feel absolutely amazing for it.

Routine

Getting into a routine with your health is the hardest part. So we suggest breaking yourself into it easily. If you know you’re terrible for skipping breakfast, then this is the first place we’re going to start. Skipping breakfast is the main reason why people are so terrible for snacking on chocolate biscuits throughout the morning until lunch. Start the day with this healthy little meal. You’ll need a silicone cooking mould for it to go into, some eggs, low fat yoghurt, cinnamon, and a scoop of oats. Grab yourself a bowel and mix two eggs, the scoop of oats, a low flat flavoured yoghurt, and around two tablespoons of cinnamon into a bowel. Add a couple of tablespoons of sweetener to finish, and cook for 25 minutes at 170. It’ll give you all the energy you need to get through the day, without snacking! Try and fill the rest of the day with healthy alternatives. Even simple things such as eating a brown bread sandwich rather than a white will do!

TUI Family Life Bahia Feliz Gran Canaria Review

There is no denying that we are a family that loves to travel. We've ventured on many different types of holidays which has allowed us to see what things are required to make our holiday stress-free and enjoyable. We have previously booked family holiday's through TUI and we've been very impressed with their service and knowledge so when I was asked if I would like to visit one of their 'Family Life' resorts for a few days, I couldn't say no.




Tui family life resorts are designed to cater for every member of your family. There is something for everyone so that you can concentrate on relaxing and enjoying your family holiday together. The resort I visited was in Bahia Feliz in Gran Canaria. 



When I arrived at the airport I was greeted by a Tui representative and coach who would provide my transfer to the resort. The coach was very comfortable. The resort is a short transfer away from the airport lasting around 15-20 minutes. This is an ideal transfer time when travelling with a family after a flight.

Bahia Feliz is a big resort which comprises of a few accommodation options, theres the main hotel and apartments with plenty of entertainment options, shops, pharmacy etc. I was staying in the 'Las Pitas' area which is a quieter area in the grounds of the Hotel Orquidea. It's a short walk away (less than 5 minutes) from the check in area but it's worth noting that there aren't any porters to help you to your room with suitcases etc so keep that in mind if you are travelling with lots of luggage and small children. If you were staying at the Hotel Orquidea you would just be getting in the lift to your room so you wouldn't have to move the luggage far.



Las Pitas provides an apartment style accommodation with a fridge, hob and microwave. Even though I stayed on an all inclusive basis, I know from previous experience that a fridge is very handy to have in your room. If you wanted to eat in the room instead of at the hotel you would be able to do that with the kitchen facilities which again can be a bonus if children are tired etc or just want a snack without going leaving the room. 



The apartment was spacious. I had a lovely terrace which overlooked some greenery that children could play on. The area itself was lovely and quiet which I liked. Even though it's nice to be around other people and in the hustle and bustle, it's great to go back to a room that provides less noise so you can relax and unwind. 





In the living area there was a large, comfortable sofa, kitchen, TV and table. The bathroom was big which included a sink, toilet and shower. The bedroom was also a good size with modern colours and furnishings. There was plenty of wardrobe space. The bed and pillows were comfortable- so comfortable in fact that they provided me with the best sleep I think i've had in the last 5 years. One night I slept from 10pm right through to 9.30am the following day which is unbelievable for me. 




As previously mentioned I stayed on an all inclusive basis which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks including alcohol. The buffet restaurant was located in Hotel Orquidea and provided a vast choice of offerings at each meal time. There was plenty of choice for all dietary requirements with vegetarian and vegan offerings and also an area for dairy free. There was a dedicated kids section which I thought was a great touch as. It was all lower so children can help themselves.

There are other restaurants and places you can eat at whilst you are there. We had a fantastic tapas style meal at the Taverna. You can book into this restaurant once a week during your stay for it to be included in your all inclusive package. Al of the food was delicious especially the dates wrapped in bacon. 

Thea's Coffee shop was also on site offering freshly made coffees and juices throughout the day. This isn't included in the all inclusive but you do get a discount with your band. I do enjoy drinking lattΓ©s so I loved the fact that I could get a freshly made one at the resort.

What impressed me the most about Tui Family Life Bahia Feliz was the outstanding selection of kids clubs and entertainment facilities. The children's entertainment team were amazing, very enthusiastic and friendly. The children are entertained from day to night through activities, a parade and evening entertainment. There are a few pools and also a splash pad which is great for little one's. There are a few park areas which were very popular. 


Image from www.tui.co.uk

I was fortunate enough to be given a tour of the kids club facilities which are completely free and available 6 days a week. They are easily the best I have seen. They are split into 3 age groups, Bamse Club for 3-5 year olds, 611 for ages 6-11 and a teen hangout. They are international kids clubs with staff speaking multiple languages which I think is great. They also follow the British standards when allocating the amount of staff members to children which is reassuring.



There are also fantastic facilities for babies and under 3's. The is something I have not seen before. Quite often babies needs are forgotten in holiday resorts when actually they can be quite challenging to look after. There are parent and baby classes available, an under 3's kids club, small soft play area and there is also an enclosed area next to the pool which boasts feeding areas, changing area, sleeping area, baby toys, a TV and sofa. This is such a good idea as it provides shade from the sun and also it's handy to pop in to change your baby rather than head back to the room etc. 






The resort also has a great range of adult classes (included in your package) which is wonderful to see. I actually did a Body Balance class outside which overlooked the sea. It was so peaceful and relaxing. It's lovely that adults can get some me time at the classes or if needs be the children can also come along and play around the sides.



Included in the holiday package is access to the gym. For an extra charge you can visit the spa which has a sauna, whirlpool bath and hydro-massage pools. There are also a range of beauty treatments on offer if you'd like to be pampered. 

Overall the resort is wonderful so much so we've been pricing it up to visit later this year. It's perfect for families. The children's entertainment and adult classes really ensure that there is something for everyone to enjoy and to get the most out of their holiday, but i think the fact that the kids clubs cater for such a large range makes this even more appealing for families especially with children of different ages.

Money can't buy Love. Or can it?

We've all heard the phrase money can't buy love but does that still stand today?  I'm sure most of us look for other qualities in a lifelong partner, than how much they have in the bank.  I know I fell in love with my husband for his personality and not his bank account but with so much financial pressure on people these days, money can be the making or breaking of a relationship.



I read an interesting article published by Shepherds Friendly which was How does money impact relationships? The findings showed that money (or the sense of security that money brings) has an impact on every area of life including love, romance and dating.


I found the part about who should pay during date night very interesting. Hubby and I pay with our joint account but before we were married we would usually take it in turns to pay. According to the article, just over 68% of people thought that men should pay on a date night which I was very surprised at. 

It also found that most people would not share their financial situation with their partners during the early stages of a relationship. I have to agree with this. I think until trust etc is built then that kind of information should stay personal. However, later on in a relationship I would be very suspicious if my partner didn't share his spendings etc with me. 

The article also talked about whether your partners debt is your responsibility too. Someone that I work with ended up getting a divorce from her husband as he was massively in debt and blowing their money on silly things. He would lie to her constantly about what he was spending money on and it caused so many arguments in their marriage. She supported him for years until she couldn't take much more and eventually his debt caused the marriage to break down. 


In some respects I do feel that your partners debt is your responsibility. If you've been in a long term relationship or are married then I believe debt should be shared but only if the debt has come from things for both of you and not like the situation my work colleague was in.

Do you agree with the article? Do you think money can't buy love or do you think it's a big deciding factor on finding a partner? Do you think money can make or break a marriage?

Is It Still Winter? Get Some Summer On Your Plate

January seemed to contain far too many weeks, and winter hasn’t finished when the month did; the school runs and daily commutes are still cold, and there seems to be snow or frost somewhere in the UK every day. Like most people, you’re probably a little tired of the cold; it can make everyone tired, and, well, sometimes grumpy. Don’t worry, spring is just around the corner, honestly; there are flowers and bulbs popping up everywhere, and the days are getting a little bit longer (phew). However, it still feels brisk outside, and you’ll be craving warm comfort food. The food you’re eating will help to determine how you’re feeling and functioning, and, if you’re a busy parent; energy levels are crucial to getting through the day in one piece.

Therefore, why not bring some summer warmth into your home through your cooking and mealtimes. If you’re tired of the bleak weather outside, you can add colour and vibrancy to your plate, and give everyone in the house something to smile about. Aside from the visual appeal; food is a great way to ensure that you’re filling up on nutrients and energy that will last longer than a quick burst of something sugary. It’s not about cutting out your sweet treats completely (a little of what you fancy will do you good), but if you start being mindful about what you’re eating, you’ll begin feeling better from the inside out. Take a look at some meal plan ideas here so that you can get a good idea of how to plan ahead. By the time summer actually arrives; you’ll be full of beans (maybe literally), and ready to take on the challenges of family and work. The following are some ideas, information, and advice for busy parents who need a hit of sunshine to brighten up their chilly days.


Colour Is Key

Bright and vibrant colour is often associated with the warmer summer months, but if you head into the grocery section of the supermarket; you’ll see it in abundance. The more natural, fresh, and colourful ingredients that you can add to your plate, the better; you’ll get the benefits of vitamins, fibre, and an array of other healthy properties that a bag of chips can’t offer you. It’s worth reading through articles like patient.info so that you can better understand the effects that a deficiency in fresh vegetables and vitamin C can cause suffering conditions like gout. Winter is often a time where unpleasant health complications can occur more often because people head towards their cravings or sugar and carbohydrates in the wrong places. Keep thinking of summer; fresh and colourful foods are the alternative you need.

Switching It Up

Nobody is going to get excited by the same meals each day, so it’s vital that you’re not creating a salad that nobody enjoys so that food becomes a chore. You can have plenty of fun with healthy food; take a look here for some recipe ideas that will be perfect for the whole family, before you write the next shopping list. Whether you go for a warm veggie-packed curry, a simple stir-fry, or some spicy tacos; you’ll be added interest and sunshine to mealtimes so that the whole house feels better. Bring summer back, and fill up on delicious food in the meantime!

Our Valentine's Day 2018

I'll be the first to admit that hubby and I used to despise Valentine's Day. We never celebrated it and we thought it was a load of commercial crap. However, since becoming parents we have realised that the quality time we have together is rather limited. 

We decided to start celebrating Valentine's Day as a way of remembering why we got together in the first place and showing that we love and appreciate one another. We have been sending cards etc since Eva has been born but this year we decided to do something extra special. 

We booked to have a 3 course lunch at the newly opened Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill in Cardiff. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the Hotel Indigo Cardiff and provides sweeping views of the city centre and beyond. This wasn't just any old lunch though, this was a special lunch where you could meet the main man himself, an opportunity we couldn't miss.


We are both foodies. We've eaten in many fantastic restaurants all over the world and michelin starred restaurants in the UK. We have a silly amount of cookbooks from our favourite chefs with of course, Marco being one of them. After all, he is the godfather of cooking. 

We arrived at the restaurant and immediately met Marco who was lovely. We chatted about Masterchef Australia (one of our favourite cookery programmes) and he then signed a copy of his new cookbook for us. 


We then headed to our table, champagne in hand to enjoy our 3 course meal. I had Calamari for a starter (which was delicious), Steak for my main, followed by a lovely Apple Crumble for dessert. Arwyn had a baked Camembert for starter, Steak for main and a crΓ©me brΓ»lΓ©e for dessert. We also had a couple of glasses of Rioja which was divine. 



It was so lovely to actually do something special on Valentine's Day. We felt like our old selves again (pre kids). We spent quality, alone time together and chatted about food and memories etc. It was perfect.


I managed to find Arwyn an amazing Valentine's card. We are a big Disney loving family so I couldn't resist this beauty from Design me Pretty on Etsy featuring one of our favourite Disney films. I could have bought her entire shop. 


Eva received her first roses from daddy which she loved. Her little face was delighted. She felt so special and she has them on pride of place in her bedroom. 

i'm looking forward to Valentine's Day next year now but i'm not sure how we'll top this one.

Get Your Healthy Mojo Back


You might have lost it, you might never have had it. But whatever the reason is for needing your health mojo back, we’re here to help. There’s so much influence at the minute through the news, social media, and blogs etc. that make it hard to know what is actually healthy. Well, it is all down to you and what you want to achieve. If you just want to eat better, then you don’t necessarily have to follow a strict diet, you just need to cut out some of the rubbish you might be eating. If you want to get more active, then it is simply the case of getting off that sofa and working out a little. But there are so of you reading this that want to be extra healthy, we’re talking instagram fitness models healthy. It’ll take some dedication, and it’ll definitely take time, but there are so many benefits to it! First however, we need to try and find a way to get your health mojo back. This article is going to get you interested in health again, and show you what you can do to stay on the right track.


Diet

Sticking to a diet when you’re used to eating absolutely anything you want is one of the hardest things that you’ll do. Diets can be so strict, and they truly do become a way of life if you want to stick to them. Now, the diet mojo is one of the hardest things to get and keep. We all know how much temptation there is out there, and we all know how hard it is to resist a cheeky chocolate bar. The reason so many people fail is they put too much pressure on themselves. They’ll restrict their diet instantly, and so much so that you can’t help but give in to temptation eventually. So, we’re here to tell you to relax a little. If you’re about to start a new diet, ease yourself in slowly. Try following the diet for three days a week, and then increase it as your resistance gets stronger. If you’re looking to try a new diet, these are the ones that we love the most, and feel you’ll benefit from:

Vegan: One of the hardest diets to stick to, especially if you’ve never gave up meat before. Don’t get us wrong, meat is great. It has high nutritional value, it tastes great, but in the long run it just isn’t the best for you. Studies show it clogs up our brains, as well as our insides. Meat is rather hard to digest, so vegans therefore have a faster metabolism. A faster metabolism makes it easier for you to lose weight. We know you’re probably thinking you’ll be on a diet of leaves and fruit for the rest of your life. But that isn’t the case. There are some truly amazing recipes for vegans that involve the yummiest of ingredients. The only downside is you are losing some nutrition from the lack of meat. It is important to supplement your diet to make sure you’re staying in tip top condition. For example, omega 3 for vegans is something the diet lacks. The lack of fish that is rich in omega 3 can easily be supplemented. There’s other vitamins such as vitamin A that is lost slightly, but again, you can always supplement it with tablets from the store. If you’re ever struggling with inspiration on what to actually eat, here’s an extensive guide for you on what you can eat, and some yummy meals for you to make.


Atkins Diet: This one is a pretty hard diet to stick by. It involves switching your diet to one that is high in protein and healthy fats, whilst drastically reducing your carbohydrate into to take to nothing. It is a really effective diet, and it is easy to lose weight from. But the one thing people struggle with is the carbohydrate loss. Lack of carbs in the beginning can mean you start to fatigue, go dizzy etc. But the whole point of the diet is finding your own perfect balance. You go through different stages, during each stage you’re reducing your carb intake further and further until you eventually get to next to nothing. There are four phases. When you get to phase three, you should nearly be at your target weight loss goal, with pretty much 0 carbs. But this is where you need to start reintroducing them back into your diet slowly. As you do, your body will adjust, and as long as the carbs are healthy, you shouldn’t put on weight again. A clever, but very challenging diet that a lot of people struggle to stick to. Just make sure you’re going down through the different stages slowly, and at your own pace. Never completely cut carbs out at once either, it’ll make you feel horrible!

Fitness

Getting your fitness mojo back is possibly harder than actually getting your dieting mojo back.  At least with eating, you can sit down and relax and do it. But with exercise, you actually have to move that bum off the sofa, and venture out into the great outdoors. Well, maybe not even that! There are a lot of home workout DVDs made by the fittest celebrities that allow you to exercise from the comfort of your own home. But a lot of people struggle with this, because well… they're in the comfort of their own home. There’s nothing stopping them from climbing back into bed, or sitting back down on the sofa. So what we recommend is actually leaving the house. It can be either to go for a walk, a run, or dare we say it… to the gym. The gym is an intimidating place for a lot of people. But if you’re looking to get your fitness mojo back, this really is the place to do it. You’re literally surrounded by health, and people trying to get into better shape. There’s personal trainers there that will be on hand to show you different routines to kickstart your fitness mojo. If you’re a bit intimidated by all the men in there, there are women only gyms for you to try out. A lot of the combines gyms however have some excellent classes for you to give a go, which are a lot better than doing an actual work out.

Inspiration

To get your mojo back, you first need some inspiration. It might be a family member who has turned their life around through fitness and diet, or it might be a friend encouraging you to go to the gym with her. Whatever it is, you have to be inspired. One place we highly recommend you looking is instagram. There are so many people who have gone through transformations just by giving themselves a kick up the bum and getting a spring in their step. Once you get into a healthier lifestyle, it really does become a way of life. Even if you can’t see any transformation on instagram, there will be plenty of fitness models displaying their meals, workouts, and progress. It gives you a body to aspire to get, and also a bit of inspiration about what meals you should be making, and what workouts you can do.

Goals

Goals are the most important part of getting your healthy mojo back. It is just as important as inspiration. Setting your own personal goals isn’t hard, but one thing we know you shouldn’t do is set the bar too high. In the back of your mind you need to have an end goal, but in the meantime set smaller ones to stick to. So it might be losing 2lb, going to the gym two times a week, or eating healthy for a few days of the week. The sooner you start meeting the smaller targets, the sooner you can start getting bigger goals.

Long Term

The long term benefits of giving everything we have mentioned above a go are amazing. Within a few weeks of trying, you know you’re going to have much higher energy levels, you’ll feel more confident within yourself, and you’ll be raring to actually get up and live life. One of the reasons we as humans hate getting up and going places is because we’re sluggish from the food we eat. The diet an exercise should relieve that, and it’ll give you a new lease of life that you didn’t have before. You’ll also become more dedicated as time goes on. In the beginning it is going to be hard to stick to, there’s no denying that. But after a few weeks, it really will become a new way of life, a better way of life for that matter. It’ll improve your digestive system, cardiovascular, as well as muscle. It’ll lengthen your life space, and help to keep you feeling younger for longer.

So there you have it. We hope that by reading this we’ve inspired some healthy mojo to come back into your life.
