Healthy Brownies Delivered To Your Door!

Un-Refined BrowniesI'm a huge fan of desserts that are good for me, especially cakes! There's certainly no shortage of nutritious brownies, muffins and pancakes recipes out there (Pinterest is a haven for them!) but what I do have as a new mum, is a shortage of time to shop for ingredients, prepare them and make them.

So you can imagine my excitement when I found out about un-Refined's nutritious brownies - which are freshly handmade, packaged in eco-friendly packaging and delivered to your door the very next day!

Guest Post: Fat-Burning Foods That Will Naturally Burn Calories As You Eat Them, by Cole Matthews

Fat-Burning Foods That Will Naturally Burn Calories As You Eat Them
Weight loss is a challenge, there's no doubt about it. As you know, losing weight takes a strategized combination of both daily exercise and a great diet, but there's a common misconception that the more important aspect of those two is exercise. 

While it's true that exercise plays a key part in getting in shape, the truth is that eating right is actually far more critical when it comes to reaching your goal number on the scale...which brings us to the issue at hand.

The Baby Weight Diaries - Part 2

The Baby Weigh Diaries Part 2

I haven't had to drop my calorie intake at all (why would I when my activity level has increased and I'm still breastfeeding). But I have been paying more attention to my nutrition and eating more fruit and veggies.

The Beddit Tracker: A replacement for wearable sleep trackers?

Beddit Sleep TrackerThe Beddit tracker differs from other sleep trackers on the market, in that you don't have to wear it. Instead the Beddit tracker is placed across your mattress, underneath the mattress cover and bed sheet. This is far more comfortable than wearing a fitness tracker on your wrist all night and will also gives you time to charge your wearable while you snooze. 

Beddit tracks your breathing, heart rate and movements in order to provide you with an impressively comprehensive report on the quality of your sleep. It's easy to set up, boasts a smart alarm to wake up and it'll even tell you if you snore and how long for...

My First Experience of a Pre-Workout Supplement (+Sci-Mx XPlode Rippedcore Pre-Workout Review)

Sci-Mx XPlode Rippedcore Pre-Workout ReviewMy last few training sessions have been lacking something: energy. I've felt like I've just been going through the motions. I'm not bored, I'm just really tired all the time as a result of adjusting to life as a new mum. 

I'm sure many of us can relate to trying to muster up the motivation to workout after a hard day at work or after being up all night with the kids. Getting into your gym kit and out the door is a challenge enough but getting the energy to beat your personal bests and kick ass is a whole other story!
