Protein Power

It finally arrived! I have been so excited for my Protein World package to arrive with my Slender Blend order and yesterday, it came.

A giant yellow box with a huge Protein World logo on the side was a little mortifying arriving into the workplace, however it will be worth it in the long run.

Included in the parcel is the Slender Blend protein tub, I chose the Strawberry flavour and it is devine, a bottle of Fat Melter tablets and a bottle of Multi Vitamins. Also included was the beaker, scoop and a recipe booklet for all fab ideas on what to make with your protein.

After a grooling workout of Thai Boxing and a 30 minute kettlebell workout, a shake was in order. I mixed myself up four scoops of Strawberry Slender Blend Protein, a cup of frozen strawberries, three tablespoons of frozen yoghurt, five fluid ounces of water and a couple of ice cubes.

Compared to other protein brands that I have tried, this strawberry flavour is very natural tasting. After my tasty smoothie I'm off for a walk with the boyfriend and the puppy.

Fitness Fun

So I have started to think a bit more about my fitness these past couple of weeks. I have never been one for diets or excersise but I want to achieve a body that I can be more confident about when I'm away on holidays. I have cut out from my diet chocolate, crisps, sweets, bread.... Basically everything that we love to love. It's been a little tough and don't get me wrong, I have had a cheat treat or two, but overall I'm feeling so much better in myself.

I am loving doing my workouts at home. I am following Fitness Blender on YouTube and I find them really easy to follow. They talk you through each individual excersise with ease and explain which muscle you are working with each movement. Follow them below: 


I love their kettle bell workout. It only takes 15 minutes and you use whatever weight suits you. I find using kettle bell gloves really helps as otherwise it really hurts my hands (I know I'm a wuss). 

I have also been taking a few personal lessons in Thai Boxing. My boyfriend has been doing Martial Arts for years and the past year has taken up Thai Boxing. He's been showing me a few technique skills and I am loving doing sessions with the pads.

In two weeks I have lost over a kilogram in weight just from cutting out crap and doing 45 mins training sessions twice a week. Next week, I am starting on a protein Sleder Blend course from Protein World and I'm going to up the amount of days I excersise to 3-4. Fingers crossed I see some progress before I go away in March.

Slender Blend on Trend

Eeeek......! So I might be a little over excited about my most recent online order. Even though I am so broke, and I am probably sacrificing running water and food on the table, I think it could be worth it!


I have just ordered the Slender Blend Package from Protein World. I've been reading tonnes of great reviews from all my favourite bloggers and they're all giving this little beauty great feedback. I want to see what all this hype is about.

Fingers crossed it's a good'un and I see some good results....and FAST!!
