LIFE: GETTING HEALTHY

January 11, 2013

Photobucket It's not like I set a new year's resolution to 'get healthier' but it's all come on very naturally. I bought a swanky set of scales as we haven't had any in our house since we moved to London as I chucked the last set when we moved. These scales are from Omron which is a brand that makes health equipment like heart monitors so I trust them! They're so fab and really thin and inoffensive.

Whilst we're taking technological things, I've also been using two apps: myfitnesspal & Nike Training Club to monitor my food intake and give me an exercise routine I can do easily. After I workout I make a Maxitone shake* - it's chocolate flavoured so actually pretty yum!

When it comes to food, I've been being super healthy and also trying to add some extras to my diet to make sure I'm getting all the nutrients I need. I love Linwood's Milled Flaxseed, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Walnuts & Q10. I add it to yoghurt, porridge, salad, soup.. anything. I also add in Udo's Oil which I've been trying to take every day in my food as it tastes okay and supposedly does absolute wonders for your hair, skin & nails. Much nicer than fish oil!

  3. I love the Linwoods flaxseed mix, as I used to put just plain flaxseed in my morning oats and they weren't the tastiest thing in the world!

  6. I also started to eat healthily again, it's been like a month and a half that I eat crap due to a hectic schedule and of course Christmas! But my body thanks me for this!

  7. I want to try those flaxseed mixes. I've lost 8lbs so far but eating healthier! I wasn't a terrible eater in the first place but changing little things has made a big difference.
