Oodles of Oomi Noodles!

Recently I have been really trying to increase the amount of protein in my diet, reading up on protein powders (I’ll admit I find it all rather confusing) and protein bars as I really want to gain muscle and definition with my workouts, so when Oomi offered me the chance to try their protein-packed noodles I jumped at the chance, especially as they are also gluten free! I’d much rather obtain my protein through my meals than using protein powder – but this is just a personal preference and doesn’t mean I won’t use protein powder in the future – but I digress.

I have to say I was a little apprehensive though when I realised the source of the protein is from white fish.  I don’t know why, as I really like white fish – I suppose it just seemed unusual to me, the idea of noodles made with fish protein, I don’t know if I expected them to feel squishy like fish or to smell like fish!?

Katjes Magic Candy Factory – 3D Candy Printer

I know that I am usually all about all things healthy and fitness, but the odd sweet treat can be good for the soul too!

We were very lucky as a family to be invited to the launch of the world’s first 3D printer for Candy at the official opening of Mr Simm’s Olde Sweet Shoppe in Bromley. Powered by magic, obviously, Katjes Magic Candy Factory 3D printer is amazing to watch in action.

Question Time with Coach Alex

You may have already gathered that we’re quite an active family.  I love my Fitness Blender Workouts, Alex Crockford Plans, PowerWave, Boxercise and jogging (not to mention walking!).  The Hubby plays football. The Pink One adores her gymnastics and trampolining.  Both the kiddies attend swimming lessons. Then the Blue One, you might have noticed has a slight penchant for football, and I’d go as far to say he’s pretty good.

The Blue One has been attending sessions since he was only 2 years old and 3 years on, the passion for football is continuously growing.  So I’ve managed to grab a fifteen-minute chat with his football coach, Alex Warner – of AW Football Coaching.  It literally is fifteen minutes (ok, ok, it’s closer to 17.5 minutes , but I’m sure you’ll forgive us the additional 2.5 minutes ;-P), with coaching upwards of 250 children a week, Coach Alex (as the kids and the parents know him) is an exceptionally busy man…

Future Fit Training Nutrition Event with Action PR

Ok, this actually started as an Instagram post (for the photo I’ve used as my feature image), but I realised I was prattling on for too long for a caption and thought it best to share my thoughts in a short(ish) blog post…

Last night I attended a brilliant event hosted by Action PR, with the lovely Helen – presented by the lovely Performance Nutritionist Tilly Spurr for Future Fit Training, which gave myself and a few others the overview of the importance of Childhood Nutrition.

Janathon 2017 – Week 1 Round Up

So it’s that time again – Janathon time! This year I am giving it my all! Working out every day (some days more gently as it’s important to let the body recover too!) – and I am also aiming to get in 10,000 steps every day as well (though will be satisfied if I manage 5 out of 7 days for this!)

So what have I been up to for the first seven days, well if you follow me on Instagram you probably already have an idea, but here are a few more details!

Day 1 – New Years Day
Double parkrun (Greenwich – Avery Hill Park and Bexley – Danson Park) with my lovely friend Helen of helsbels.org – we started 2016 off in the same way, and I think it’s a great way to start the year!
