Join Me On My Journey featuring Sensilab 10 Days Fast Slim

Welcome to another Join me on my Journey post! This one is featuring a natural weight loss product by Sensilab called 10 Days Fast SlimSensilab are a company specialising in nutraceutical products, vitamin dietary supplements and cosmetics. I was lucky enough to be able to try their 10 day slimming plan and this post will fill you in with how I got on. 

I’ve never tried weight loss supplements before as I’ve not always known what ingredients they contain. The 10 Days Fast Slim contains all natural ingredients which have been carefully chosen to help your body speed up the weight loss process, in a safe way. 

In the pack you get – 

  • 20 capsules A (Drainer), 20 capsules B (Glucose balance),  20 capsules C (Metabolism support)
  • A diet and workout guide
  • A pill box
  • E-mail support

As mentioned previously, there are 3 x 20 capsules each aiding weight loss in different ways. You have to take 2 of each capsule at different times of the day. 

Capsule A – Drainer

These are to be taken after breakfast. They contain extracts of black radish, sarsaparilla, java tea and black pepper. 

These ingredients help to – 

  • Detoxify the whole body
  • Excrete excess water
  • Prepare the body for weight loss

Capsule B – Glucose Balance 

These are to be taken after lunch and contain brown sea algae and cinnamon.

These ingredients help to – 

  • Maintain good blood sugar levels 
  • Break down fats after the meal
  • Decrease the absorption of fat
  • Increase the feeling of fullness

 Capsule C – Metabolism Support 

These are to be taken after dinner. They contain extracts of artichokes, papayas, ginger, cayenne and black pepper and choline. 

These ingredients help to – 

  • Regulate your metabolism during the night and daytime
  • Break down fat stores 
  • Digestion 

To make sure you get the best results, it’s important to eat the right foods, as stated in the guide. You also need to do regular exercise. There is an exercise plan included in the guide too. 

How did I get on? 

Well, I followed my usual eating plan – which consists of a lot of vegan/vegetarian foods, clean foods, very low sugar and gluten, etc. I just find that eating like this works well for me and I love eating foods like sweet potatoes and avocados! I had gone off track recently and was following another diet plan which meant I wasn’t really looking at what I was eating and was just eating foods that fit into my ‘points value’. 

In terms of exercise I have been walking with the pram and running in the evenings. I just love running! It’s my bit of ‘me time’ where I can enjoy the fresh air and listen to my favourite (cringey) music. 

What was my total weight loss on the Sensilab 10 Days Fast Slim plan? 

4lbs! Or 1.84kg

I’m very, very pleased with this weight loss. Not only  did I lose a few pounds, I also just feel less sluggish and bloated. It’s nice to know that natural ingredients have played a part in my weight loss too, with no nasties involved.

Mr Lee’s Gourmet Oriental Noodles in a Cup

I was very lucky to have been sent some gorgeous food goodies last week. Introducing Mr Lee’s Gourmet Oriental Noodles in a Cup! These aren’t your typical pot noodle, these noodles are low in salts, low in sugar, low in saturated fats and low in calories. They are also gluten free. The ingredients are freeze-dried so none of the flavour or goodness is sucked out of them, as is the way with regular pot noodles which are dehydrated.

There are six flavours to choose from –

If you want to find out more about a certain flavour, then just click it and it will take you to the brilliant Mr Lee’s website where you can see nutritional information, ingredients and just generally beautiful photography!

Mr Lee is actually a real person! He has been passionate about delivering healthy food to people since he was diagnosed with cancer. He was a great lover of regular instant noodles, but knew he couldn’t eat them and all their nasties whilst trying to be healthy and battle through chemotherapy. That’s where his idea of Mr Lee’s noodles was born. Once he was given the all-clear, he was able to work on this amazing project.

I gave the Tai Chi Chicken noodles a try first (I love chicken!). The noodles themselves are rice noodles from Vietnam – very authentic! – and taste delicious. They are so much lighter and kinder on your stomach than regular, stodgy noodles. They are also gluten free – words I love! The noodles contained some of my favourite ingredients – sweetcorn, green beans, shallots, ginger, spring onions, chives, lime zest and orange blossom honey. Yum! Yes they’re low in salts and sugars, but could I tell? No! The favour of the other ingredients were able to shine through and really packed a flavoursome punch.

They also look beautiful in the bowl, wouldn’t you agree?

Mr Lee’s noodles aren’t in the supermarkets yet, but they will be soon. However, you can buy them online here. The company wanted to get the noodles out to hotels, airlines, staff events, caterers and staff restaurants first so that people could be served directly with their noodle meal.

You can also order the noodles through Amazon, and there’s a little discount there too!

You may also spot Mr Lee’s Noodle Kiosks in your place of work, or other areas. So you can enjoy noodles wherever you fancy! The machines also mean that you can add other supplements to your dish, such as tamari soy sauce, chilli oil, sesame oil and protein boosts.

Please let me know if you’ve enjoyed these noodles yourself.

Join Me On My Journey

I know I haven’t written one of these for a while, but decided it’s time to bring them back (especially as my friend Natasha requested it!). I stopped writing because I had suffered from back and knee injuries so was struggling to exercise. I overdid it too soon after childbirth so decided to give my body a rest.

I have continued to eat healthily and have discovered some more beautiful recipes. As you may have seen, I have written recipe posts on the blog including and Sausage and Cider Stew and Chocolate and Coconut Chickpea Cookies.

Chocolate and Coconut Chickpea Cookies

In terms of exercise, I’m still training for a 5k. I’ve started a new training program since my injuries and I prefer it. It’s fun to run this time of year – I especially enjoy it when it’s raining! The roads are clear, and the rain cools me down! I’ve discovered a new course around my estate which keeps me entertained on my journeys. I’m still continuing to go on walks with Baby J everyday which I love. She wears her snowsuit  now in the pram and she looks adorable! I just need one for myself now!

Recipes I have cooked and enjoyed this week include –

Beetroot Cous Cous with Roasted Squash and Feta
Poached Eggs with Cayenne Pepper, Feta, Jalapeños, Pickled Eggs and Rocket

I haven’t deprived myself of treats though. I especially enjoyed my Costa Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate!

Thank you for joining me once again. Next week’s post will be much more interesting – promise!

Join Me On My Journey – Week 3

Well this week has flown by and has definitely been my best one yet! Running has been going well and I’ve eaten some gorgeous meals. 

As you know from last week’s post, I bought myself the ‘Lean in 15’ by The Body Coach book. Well I cooked many recipes from the book this week and here are a few of my favourites. 

Winner’s Protein and Blueberry Pancakes

I have lots more recipes to try over week 4 so will take plenty of photos of those. 

This week has been made much easier by my very supportive husband. He took my hideous ‘before’ photos for me and won’t show me them so that it will be a nice surprise when I see them next to my (hopefully) much healthier physique. He has also looked after our little Jessica whilst I’ve gone out for my runs and has eaten the meals with me in the evenings (even thouugh he doesn’t need to lose any weight!). He never reads these posts, but I want him to know that he’s been great and I do appreciate his support. 

I am starting to notice a change in my clothing now – it is feeling less tight and I’m much more comfortable. I don’t weigh myself, so feeling the changes through my clothing and seeing them through photos is so exciting and much more effective in my opinion. 

Runs have consisted of interval training – a brisk 5 minute warm up walk, followed by 90 seconds run, 90 seconds walk, 3 minutes run, 3 minutes walk ☓ 2 followed by a cool down walk. I’ve also been doing the Body Coach HIIT 15 minute workouts – they’re a killer! Of course I have also still been going on lots of lovely long walks with my gorgeous girl – very hard core in this heat! 

Thanks again for joining me. Have a good week!

Join me on my Journey

Hi again everyone, 

Tomorrow I am beginning my journey to ‘a rocking fit body, mind and spirit’. I bought myself a Daily Greatness Training Journal which claims it will help me better myself in all these areas in twelve weeks. I’m so excited to begin my journey and will be taking the time today to read my journal and fill out the beautiful pages in the front of the book. 

I purchased this journal because I have felt seriously unfit since having baby Jessica and really needed some motivation. I haven’t just felt unfit physically, but also mentally. It’s easy to get into some naughty little habits when you’re at home with bubs all day and I’ve really been getting comfortable! 

Before pregnancy I was a 5k runner and enjoyed eating healthily. I had very bad sickness all throughout my pregnancy so went off a lot of foods.  To be honest all I could cope with were wonderful carbs like bread and potatoes! 

This was taken about a year ago when running was really paying off!

As part of my mission to get fit and healthy I will be taking up running again and using a Couch to 5k app to help me. This is what I did before and I really enjoyed using one. I love the use of technology to help keep me motivated. The various apps I have on my phone along with my FitBit, Garmin watch and training journal should definitely be enough to keep me happy! 

I will be posting weekly about my journey, using this blog as a kind of open diary. I’d love for you to share any tips, advice and questions you may have about your own positive lifestyle changes and my own. I will also be sharing healthy recipes, which I’m really excited about! Trust me, I’m not a great cook, but if I can put together these recipes, then anyone can! 

Thanks again for dropping by, please let me hear any motivational comments you can provide – I’ll need them! If you also wish to purchase one of these lovely journals (there are other types available, including a yoga one!) then you can do so here
