It’s a New Year and everyone has made some sort of resolution pertaining to a form of self-improvement that is either vaguely achievable with considerable effort, impossible to quantify and therefore attainable based on interpretation or just annoyingly ironic. Well, here are mine…

I was supposed to be doing a review of some sort of brain enhancing food supplement today, but the company who sent me a sample emailed yesterday to say that unforeseen circumstances meant that they are discontinuing the tablets and can I please not post a review.

Because I am a PROFESSIONAL LIFESTYLE BLOGGER I get to apply to review all manner of random cool things. They never reply, but fortunately I also apply for really boring things too, which is why I now present to you my review of the Calibre Products Posture Corrector for Men and Women.

Hey there, you OK?

WOAH! There’s no need to shout!

Whaddya mean I look like I’m further away?

Oh! You mean I look smaller, yeah, I went and dropped 2 jeans sizes with this here fitness and lifestyle changing thing that I was going to write about.

When was I going to write about it? Well, I was gonna start now, but you seem to be a bit over-confrontational about the whole thing.

OK, OK, calm down. I didn’t realise you were under so much pressure with work and that. I’m sorry too. Here, sit down. Feeling better? Good. Can I write about the diet thing now?

Thank you. Sheesh, some people

No, I didn’t say anything. Whaddya mean you heard ‘Sheesh some people’? No, that was just one of the sliding doors on Star Trek. You know, the ones that were a mixture of someone’s shoe and a guy going Pissshh. Yeah, it was definitely that. You need to stop binging on Netflix and get some rest. You look very tired. Good.

HELLO EVERYONE! Welcome to my write up on my nigh-on two months of being incredibly well behaved and awesome, following Ru-Tee Block’s 8-week long The Body Confidence Program.

Oh, and just so you’re fully aware of the facts before you get a crick in your neck from trying to run away, this blog post does include several photos of me in just my pants. You’re OK with that? You sure? Ok…

Hello everyone.

I’ve been sent some coconut water-based juice to try, and I have done a video review.

Watch it if you’d like…

So there you go.

For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water is available from Asda for £1.99 a pop.

Find out more by following the For Goodness Shakes Instagram Feed, or their Twitter account.

Here’s the science bit, in a fancy different font to make you extra concentrate…

For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water is a new range of deliciously-flavoured soft drinks which give 10g of protein, zero fat and no added sugar.
Registered Nutritionist and sports nutrition specialist Claire Baseley says. “Many fitness fans, of every ability, want to be strong but lean and for them this is a fantastic addition to their diet.  With zero fat and 10g protein, the nutritional profile is extremely positive, the taste is great and it’s an excellent alternative to sugary energy drinks. Furthermore, CoconutWater has fantastic hydrating properties allowing you to combine hydration and recovery in one drink.”
Made in Chelsea’s Steph Pratt says,”I love going to the gym, working out, staying fit and eating healthily – for me it’s about looking good, feeling good and staying toned.  Protein is a vital part of my diet and something like For Goodness Shakes’ Protein Coconut Water tastes great, has no added sugar, no fat, no salt but does add some extra protein, perfect!”
For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water comes in both Tropical and Mango & Orange flavours and is available exclusively in ASDA.
Former international swimmer, owner of Sculpt Fitness, and one of the country’s leading personal trainers, David Jones, believes protein water could benefit a wide range of clients,“Consumers are now looking for more than just a functional benefit in their sports nutrition products. They want something to fit their needs as well as tasting great. For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water not only delivers on taste, but also gives a much needed protein boost throughout your day, not to mention the great hydrating properties of coconut water.
“Adding extra protein around training will help and, because it comes in a light format like water, is even easier to get on board – 10 grams of protein, zero fat or salt and just 52 calories per 330ml is fantastic.
Claire Baseley says, “Many people want the benefit of extra protein but maybe don’t want to drink a protein supplement during or straight after training.  A refreshing and flavourful protein coconut water eliminates some of the issues around that.
“For Goodness Shakes Protein Coconut Water has 10g of protein and almost 2000mg BCAA which will help with growth and maintenance of lean, functional muscles when used as part of a balanced diet and training plan.

Those lovely people over at Nutri-Plan have said I can run a giveaway for some of their fancy Tea-Tox detox teabags. Yay!
Now, normally I’d have a bit of fun and make you do some colouring in or whatever but 1. My last competition got 4 entries and the winner was in a foreign country and didn’t want the prize and 2. I’m really bloody tired.

I’d do the fancy embedding thing but WordPress is either being deliberately faffy with HTML or I’m rubbish. I’m rubbish.

Good luck!

You all know me, I’m not exactly that Insane Bolt fella, I’m not a runner. I think my most strenuous athletic feat to date was when I had to press Z and X rapidly to make Daley Thompson run really fast on the ZX Spectrum.

Still, when offered the chance to do a bit of Trail Running, and, with the motivation of a lovely email lady telling me what to do, a few visits to the gym too.whatistrailrunning (more…)
