C9 Day's 1+2

Hiya guys!

Happy Bank Holiday!

(I'm writing this on my iPad btw, so sorry if the format is a little odd!)

It's been raining here in the UK today, as I think is the norm on a bank holiday, haha. We did have a lovely sunny day yesterday though and I'm flying back to Spain this evening with Mark in tow, cannot wait!

As you know I started the C9 cleanse yesterday (sunday 1st) and I just wanted to check in with you all and give you a little update on how it's going.

Both today and yesterday was the same routine, tablets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 4x120ml of Aloe Vera gel throughout the day (which I really enjoyed, haha) I had my vanilla protein shake with skimmed milk at lunch - which is gorgeous! I can't wait to experiment and add strawberries to it! And not forgetting I had loads of water and Peppermint tea. 

I am feeling great on it, but there are a couple of negatives, but I do have solutions. The mornings I found the hardest. Mid morning both days, I've had a rumbling tummy and have felt soo hungry. I've chopped some cucumber up into sticks, so every time I got a  grumble I had a nibble and it kept it at bay completely. The 'free' foods list comes in handy for exactly this. Once lunchtime came and I had my shake I was absolutely fine for the rest of the day. I even sat next to Mark while he was having his dinner last night and managed to stay strong and sip my Peppermint tea, haha! It did smell good though!

The other thing was the 'snack' the fiber sachet. Yesterday I had it just straight in hot water and to be honest it tasted like feet. I didn't really enjoy it, but I persevered and drank it all. I know it's good for you to have, as it keeps you, erm, regular during the cleanse! So today I dissolved it in my Peppermint tea and I didn't taste it at all!  

Exercise wise - I have been busy sorting the house out still and doing housework and the odd bit in the garden. I had a little walk yesterday and today I walked to the train station and through the airport - so I think that all counts! 

I think the key to this is to keep yourself busy and make sure you have some of the 'free' foods in, to snack on when you feel hungry. Day's 1+2 are the toughest and I'm nearly done!

Can't lie, I am really looking forward to tomorrow, when I start to have a shake at breakfast as well as at lunchtime and a 600 calorie meal for dinner! Get in! Haha!

I must admit, considering I haven't had much food, I do have loads of energy and I'm feeling so positive and motivated! Excited for the next 7 days!

Hope you had a great Monday guys!! 

Chat soon!

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
