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.

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&
