Making Changes: featuring My Protein

If there was one thing I never used to be satisfied with, it was my weight. Right through from being  a size 12 or back down to a size 8 - I always wanted to change. I used to work out every single day, I hit my goal and I still wasn't happy. Of course I was proud of myself for sticking to it and keeping up with working out and cutting out the crap - I felt better mentally, I just didn't feel satisfied as a whole. Rather than focusing energy on the materialism of exercise, I should of been focusing it on the health side - yanno the reason we should be exercising and eating healthily in the first place. 


Strawberry and Banana Smoothie

Today I thought I'd share a smoothie recipe with you all. I never used to be that big on smoothies. I've always chosen to have a milkshake over a smoothie (chocolate to be precise) however over the years I've been more open to trying different things and going for the "healthier" option and whilst smoothies aren't *super* healthy, they definitely have more goodness in them. Okay, aaand maybe a bit of sugar but I suppose it's better than reaching for a chocolate for breakfast, or skipping it completely right?!

I decided enough was enough, I did a little research, changed my ways of thinking and voila. Even little changes to your day can make big differences! I thought I'd share my list of ideas that may give you that little boost you need to keep productive.
