One of my main goals for 2018 is to start taking care of myself more, in terms of my health and my overall fitness, so when I was contacted by the team at Superdrug asking if I would like to try some products from their Some Body Range* I was very excited to give them a go and incorporate them into my current routine.
I am (and have been) following the Slimming World plan, and have lost over 5 stone in weight – although over the Christmas period, I did put some weight back on, so a kick start for 2018 is just what I needed, as for me January is always a time I struggle with my motivation and energy levels, and it would seem that I am not alone.
New research from Superdrug has revealed that for 6 out of 10 Brits a simple compliment in January is the way to stay motivated with New Year goals, with 88% believing more compliments need to be given in January than any other month to encourage, inspire and motivate during the bleak cold winter.
Dr Becky Spelman, Registered Practitioner Psychologist & member of BABCP backs the findings, saying, “When it comes to getting fit, losing weight, or focusing on our health, positive acknowledgement is very useful. Hearing that we are looking good from people, and that the time and effort we have invested in our health are bearing fruit, actually spurs us on to do even more.”
Strawberry Protein Shake
This tastes super yummy and just like a strawberry milkshake! Its super easy to make – you just add water (or milk) and shake until its all mixed in. The Protein Powder is priced at £17.99 for 600g, and Superdrug regularly have offers on across their diet and fitness products – at the time of writing this post, they currently have a Buy 1, Get 2nd 1/2 Price offer on the Some Body Range.
Protein Pancake Mix
The Protein Pancake Mix contains 4 sachets of ready-to-make scrummy pancakes. They are super easy to make – you just add water to one of the sachets and mix under smooth – then just cook as you would with any normal pancake. Each sachet when made up only contains 182 calories and 16g of protein, and is priced at £3.99
Sweet and Salty Popcorn
I am a HUG fan of popcorn, so I was very excited to try this one out! This popcorn is not only super yummy, but is dairy free, vegan and gluten free. For the 25g bag, there is just 116 calories, which makes it perfect for snacking on, and at only 79p per bag is a really affordable snacking treat.
There are several other products within the Some Body range, including chocolate bars, detox teas and flavoured sparkling water, so there are plenty of things to try and give your fitness goals a real kick start!
