I was sent of bundle of products
by Home Bargains to try and
encourage me to head into 2017 more healthily!

The giant water bottle was quickly claimed by hubbie, he has a lot of
headaches and I think its because he gets so dehydrated over the course of his
working day. I do nag at him to drink
more but he just ignores me – well that bottle is so big there is no ignoring
that if its sat on his desk… its got some weight to it full, so he could do exercises with it in between sips!
Really you should be aiming to
drink at least six glasses of water a day but ideally eight. He tends to drink a little bit of pop,
squash or tea so he needs to have more water on its own. I am lucky as I don’t mind water; I can drink
it quite happily but do have the occasional cup of tea to warm me up! The house is freezing at the moment so any
warmth is appreciated.
Moving on to tea, the green tea
captured my interest so now I can warm up with a hot drink but have something a
bit better for me. Green tea leafs are
apparently richer in antioxidants and it was quite a refreshing
drink as it had the fruit flavours (pineapple and grapefruit) in there
too. But if I am honest I do prefer my
regular cuppa, although I might get used to this after a few more cups. I could try a different flavour too as this
one is a bit sweet.
The Amino Blast is used for those
working out to try and get leaner muscles apparently! I don’t tend to head to the gym as much as I should, I did have a
subscription which was quite useful as I can do that in the comfort of my own
home, when it suits me. I also love
swimming so should really try and start going again – the Roam Elite Watch I
was sent can even be used in water so that’s handy to know and another reason
to get to the pool just to test it out!
The Energy Bars are handy if I
need a quick fix before dashing off somewhere otherwise I might reach for
something that isn’t quite as filling or as good for me (the boys still have
selection boxes chocolate left over calling to me!).
The delivery has certainly motivated me to get fitter
this year. I look back at pictures over
the years and my belly seems to be growing bigger each year (and no there are
no more babies so its ALL just ME on my own wobbling!). It creeps up on you middle age and then
weight is harder to shift, so I guess I should get some good habits in place
now before its too late!
