C9 - Days 3-9

As you guys know I've recently been on the C9 program. If you follow me on snapchat. I'm sure you would of seen my daily updates of milkshakes, aloe vera shots and low cal meals!

Day 1+2 were the toughest. See my post here.

But once you power through these days it's pretty much a home stretch.

I must admit, by dinner time on day 3 I was more than ready for something to eat! I prepared by looking up low calorie meal ideas on Pinterest and also by looking on the C9 Facebook group for recipe ideas!

I had the vanilla milkshake mix, which I absolutely loved! A couple of times I blended it up with a bunch of strawberries (strawberries are on the free foods list!) and it was delicious! Tip - mixing the forever lite milkshake in a blender or with a hand whisk really makes the difference! 

During my C9 Mark started his leave and I did feel guilty at times that he was missing out 'enjoying' being off work, as we couldn't really go out for slap up meals, drinks, coffees & cakes. (we've made up for it since, lol!)

We also started our next part of our patio, so we were busy with that, mixing up cement and laying down paving stones - it was quite a grueling few days, so I think that counted as my daily exercise!

After the C9 I lost a whopping 6lbs and felt great. My nails are a lot stronger (which is an issue for me, I do suffer from weak nails!) My hair is lovely and strong and my skin has cleared up too. In general I feel so much 'healthier' and I feel so much more aware about what my body does and doesn't need.

I would recommend the C9 100%, it's not all about weight loss - it's about feeling healthier in general and giving you that kick start you need to a healthier life. The weight loss is a bonus!

It is so easy to follow with a daily check list of the tablets and aloe vera you need to take for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It even has the number of glasses of water to tick off. Perfect for me, I love a good checklist!

If you decide to give the C9 ago let me know how you get on in the comments below!

Good luck! You'll love it!

p.s this is not a sponsored post, I purchased the C9 myself and just want to share my progress and thoughts with you all.

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog. If you're debating on what name to choose for your

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

My Spanish Vida goes to Riyadh KSA

This isn't just a one off trip either. It is for, well, the foreseeable future, for as long as they'll have us anyway.  If you follow my social media,  Instagram  and  Twitter  you've probably picked up on the fact that we have relocated to Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The gist of the reason is that my husband was offered a fantastic position out there and to be honest after trying out semi-retirement and with the whole pandemic thing where we've (all) been extremely restricted we were itching for another adventure. We also never realised how much we missed the Middle East.  Previously we had five years out in the UAE, living in Abu D
