My Fitness Essentials

I'm really in to working out at the moment and whether I'm doing yoga or circuit training I always like to look and feel good so I thought I'd show you a few of my essential fitness items.

I'm really loving Lorna Jane fitness wear at the moment from House of Fraser, the range is full of bright, fun workout gear that's practical yet stylish at the same time. When I'm exercising I like to wear a sports bra and then a looser top so that I don't feel self conscious of my mum tum, this top is great because it's really lightweight and breathable and the style and colour mean it's very flattering. I usually wear black leggings as they're really slimming but I love to have some kind of bright design somewhere on them to add some colour. 

Same with my trainers, these New Balance ones are perfect as they're great for running and they're super comfortable as well as looking great too. Lastly my favourite thing to wear when I'm working out are the bright pink RunPhones, they're a headband and earphones in one and the audio jack fits most media players. I love these because I don't have to worry about my earphones falling out while I'm running, in colder weather it keeps my ears nice and warm and you can also turn the volume up and down using the small controller on the cord so no faffing around with my iPod while I'm exercising.

What's your favourite fitness item?

Weight Loss Wednesday - Diet Expert Week 3

I'm on week 3 of Diet Expert now and this week I've lost 2lbs which I'm really pleased with, I haven't found it too hard and it makes life easier this week because I can start to introduce some of my normal foods in to my diet like starches. 

I've been trying out the Gourmet Range this week which are super easy because all you have to do is microwave them for 2 minutes and you have a ready made delicious meal.

The Gourmet range is a range of tasty ready meals improved by our Chef and enriched with proteins of high nutritional quality. As part of a program, the "Chef" dishes are associated with Booster breakfasts which will give you a set of active components facilitating general well-being and maximizing your weight loss results. 

The idea of this week is to gradually introduce normal foods so that I hopefully won't put the weight I've lost over the last 2 weeks straight back on. I'm feeling positive that I can keep it off and Diet Expert has really helped to motivate me and keep me on track with my weekly phone calls from the dietitian, if I have any questions or concerns she helps me out with them and keeps me focused.

I'll be back next week with a final post about my Diet Expert experience and my final weigh in, finger crossed I'll have maintained my weight loss. If you'd like to read the previous two posts and find out more about Diet Expert then click here and here.

Win A Love U Skincare Bee Venom Moisturiser!

The new must have beauty item amongst celebs at the moment is bee venom, it's loved by the likes of Victoria Beckham, Dannii and Kylie Minogue and even Kate Middleton. It's been hailed as nature's botox and is the secret to younger looking skin, the bee venom tricks your skin in to thinking it's been stung which in turn increases the blood flow to the area, relaxes muscles and makes your skin more taut. 

Regular use can improve your skins elasticity and skin tone and I have to say after having tried it for the last few weeks I'm a massive fan. I've been using it twice a day everyday and have seen a big improvement in my skin tone and my skin feels much firmer too, especially around my jaw line which I'm really pleased with.

The Bee Venom Moisturiser is available to buy from the Love U Skincare website for £39.00 but they've been kind enough to give me an extra one to giveaway to my lovely readers. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning one for yourself then all you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter form below.
