I am on a health kick, trying to lose those few extra kilos before I depart on vacation. More like a wellness kick. The first few days were not easy, while I was shrinking my stomach, it hurt… it hurt bad! But since then its been actually quite great, I feel lighter and fitter and healthier overall.
Along the way I have discovered some great hidden gems to aid in my new approach to life and fitness… and anti ageing (yes I am even more concerned now that a ‘special’ birthday is imminent).
These are all worth a try… well at least I think they are.
Proplenish – Marine Collagen
I have heard wonderful things about this product, and I have just started taking it myself. Its tasteless and you just need one packet to sprinkle into your drink or morning yoghurt. To help plump out those fine lines. $49.95 for one months supply.
Tully Lou – Gym wear.
It doesn’t get much more glamorous than this – Its the most amazing gym wear I have seen and super comfy, I cant wait for these pants to come back in stock.
