Protein Packed Snack Balls

Since trying to get fit, exercise more and generally just tone up my body, one thing I am increasing in my diet is the amount of protein I consume as it is great in aiding muscle building/recovery. I'm trying to incorperate this not only in my meals but my snacks too.

One of the latest crazes that I've seen is protein/energy balls. These small circular snacks can be made in all sorts of flavours, are generally low in calories and certainly pack a punch when it comes to the amount of protein they can contain.

LeapFrog's LeapReader Junior Review

I've always maintained that reading books is important no matter what age you are. My children have had books read to them from the moment they were born. The skill of reading itself is one learnt over time and it certainly isn't a bad thing encouraging this early on. The LeapReader Junior from LeapFrog is a reading aid which definitely helps with this.

We're Going On a Bunny Hunt

Easter, we're all thinking about it, I mean you can't miss all of the Easter eggs stacked up in the supermarket aisles. They've been there since Christmas was over. One thing my girls love is a good Easter egg hunt, their Grandad sets them one up yearly in his garden, but this year Lindt have very kindly provided us with the tools to create our very own gold bunny hunt.

BFF Journal Review

We all remember when we were young and had best friends, sharing those necklaces etc that came in halves, you know the ones right? Well I was recently sent something that seemed to be for the modern day best friends, a BFF journal filled with questions and answers.

What five songs would you put on a playlist for your bestie's rockin birthday bash?

Would you rather have a constant weeklong case of the sneezes or the hiccups? What would you each come up with if you sketched what you look like when you roll out of bed in the morning? Take turns filling out this special journal for best friends and find out! 

This books is practically overflowing with quizzes, questions and prompts about all your favourite subjects, music, love, family, school, friendship and so much more! When you're done you'll have a unique keepsake filled with words and pictures about you and your BFF to save and treasure forever.

Straight away just from looking at the cover you get a sense of fun with gorgeous patterns and vibrant colours drawing you in.

Weekly Weigh In 24.03.2015

Almost a quarter of the way through the year and I'm still sticking with this whole weight loss thing even though I don't feel like any big changes have happened so far.

I was talking to my husband the other day and I said despite not really changing my body, I actually enjoy the lifestyle I've taken on. The healthier foods are far tastier, I'm cooking a lot more fresh foods and being more adventurous with my recipes and most days I actually look forward to doing some exercise.

Weighing in this week, I was scared to step on the scales as my period is trying to make an appearance so I was expecting a couple of exra pounds to go back on but surprisingly I lost 1/2 a lb.

My measurements altered slightly on the waist, putting on 1/2 an inch but my hips are still the same
slightly disappointing but I'm using the excuse of bloating!!

Read With Me #12

Hey there readers, welcome to this weeks Read With me. I hope you've all had time to settle down with a good book.

read with me
Last week I managed to read quite a few books but in a way I felt I cheated.

I was reading the Songs Of Submission series by C.D Reiss which consists of 7 books (plus another 2 if you want to read the short stories).

However each book was only around 150 pages long so not as long as a typical novel usually is.

These books did impress me though. Typically shorter books tend to not interest me as I feel they are rushed, details left out, left wanting more from the story but Reiss managed to reel me in.

I found myself picking each book in quick concession as I'd been left needing to know what happened next ASAP.
