Proskins Review: The lightweight, booty-lifting compression legging.

Proskins Slim Full Length Leggings

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of Proskins leggings. After hearing multiple blogger/social media superstars rave about the tummy-flattering, bottom hugging compression leggings, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pair. Continue reading

Everyone talks about carb loading, but how important really is that XXL bowl of pasta the night before your first marathon? Knowing what to eat before a long run can be confusing.

This post will keep things as simple as possible and hopefully help you work out a pre-run meal plan that suits you whilst maximising race-day performance. Continue reading

DIY Protein Bars

IMG_7034Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good protein bar. They’re the easiest “grab and go” snack and can be found in nearly every supermarket these days. However, a daily Grenade Bar could end up costing you £60 a month which is equivalent to a whopping £700 a year!! The bars are also often packed full of artificial sweeteners and other weird ingredients (yup, that’s why they taste so yum), so much so that you may actually be better off eating a bar of Dairy Milk and having a shake! So I’m here to solve all of your problems. These delicious homemade protein bars contain no artificial sweeteners and the recipe can be adapted to your individual taste. Triple choc chip? PB with Crunchie spread topping? You name it. The best thing? The basic recipe works at out under 70p per bar. DREAMY. Keep on readin’ for the full recipe.

The Beginner’s Guide to Macros

IMG_5019

As some of you may have read in my previous most, I have decided to experiment with my macros. I won’t ramble on about why I have decided to start tracking my calorie and protein intake in this post, but if you want to find out more about my reasoning, head on over to https://mybusinessbody.com/2017/02/14/why-ive-decided-to-track-my-macros/.

In this post, I’m going to clear up all those confusions. Bulking? Cutting? “IIFYM”? These are all buzz words we don’t hear the end of these days, and until recently, I had no idea what 99% of them meant. If you’re like me and think “TDEE” is some sort of medical disease, carry on readin’.  In 5 minutes time, you’ll be a complete macro pro.

Why I’ve decided to track my macros.

img_5010

Nope, I’m not entering into a bikini comp and nope, I’m not “shredding” or looking to gain muscle. The reason I’ve decided to experiment with calorie intake and macro composition is to learn more about my body, what I fuel it with and what a “balanced diet” really is. I have never been someone who counts calories or tries to pack as much protein as physically possible into every meal but at the same time, I am very aware of what I put into my body but generally I eat what I want, how much I want and when I want.  Continue reading

The 3pm Snaccident: Cacao & Orange Protein Loaf

So I’m that girl who, the second I finish my last mouthful of lunch, I’m thinking about what to eat next. Sat at a desk for 11-12 hours a day and eating every meal out of gross stained tupperware does, unsurprisngly get boring. No matter how hard I try and how many different recipes I experiment with, eating the same chickpea and lentil curry for lunch and dinner 4 days in a row just. isn’t. fun. However, I still don’t want to spend 95% of my evenings cooking up the latest Madeleine Shaw recipe, eating it at 9:30pm (lukewarm post insta photo) and getting into bed on a overly-stuffed belly because I was that hungry. So, I keep on doing it and have now eaten chilli for lunch 5 days this week and never, ever want to see a kidney bean again in my life.
