Why #OfficeYoga Is The Way Forward

The importance of exercise when working in an office is huge. Sitting down all day can be really bad for you! If I don’t leave work at lunchtime for a stroll around town or to run some errands then I literally can clock up less than 4000 steps a day which I only get in because we walk to and from the carpark which is about 25-30 minutes walking a day in total. This is shocking!

Results With Lucy Blogger Event

So, this is a funny post for me… I set up, managed and ran an awesome (if I do say so myself) blogger event at work for Results With Lucy last week but I also attended it as a local blogger! I thought, why not? I’ll be there anyway and I preferred to get involved with the girls and planned the event to be one that I would enjoy if I was invited to it so I obviously wanted to do it too! It was great to get involved and see blogger events from both sides, the organising, and the attending.

Monkey Nutrition Primal 26 Whey Protein Isolate

Monkey Nutrition isn’t a brand that I’ve heard of before but when I was offered some of their Primal 26 Whey Protein Isolate to review and as a daily user of protein powder I thought I’d give it a go! There’s a massive 26g of protein in each scoop (the scoops are 30g as opposed to the standard 25g from MyProtein & The Protein Works). They only come in Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry flavours, which isn’t really a lot when you compare to some competitors but we use Vanilla in our protein breads and other baking. For our day to day shakes we usually go for more exciting flavours.
