This Sunday was the first day of spring and the sunniest we've had since last summer, so there couldn't have been a more perfect day to head to Sheffield and take part in the incredible Sport Relief's Games. Ready...Steady...Go!
At the start of the summer, a crazy - yet incredible - thing happened to me.
I love yoga! I practise it 3 mornings a week and the odd evening too and often that might just be 10 minutes but it makes the world of difference, to my well being, how toned I look and feel and well, it makes me happy.
I try and live as healthy a lifestyle as possible and that includes high quality cocoa and dark chocolate in my balanced diet. For those who don't know (where've you been?) cocoa is a superfood bursting with endorphin-releasing ingredients, antioxidants, calcium, magnesium and iron, great quality chocolate is oh-so good for you. One of my all time favourite chocolatiers Hotel Chocolat also believe that everyone should be able to include top-quality chocolate at the heart of their healthy lifestyle, and what's more, cocoa-rich chocolate is perfect for optimising sports performance too. Good news at this time of year in particular with new starts and motivation to get fit after the indulgence of Christmas! Here at Honest Mum, one lucky reader will be getting their hands on this gorgeous Sports Performance gift box which includes Supermilk Puddles, a Dark Fruit & Nut Slab, a Supermilk Hazelnut Slab, Classic Drinking Chocolate,Cocoa & Peppermint Infusions, and three 35g Rabot 1745 bars: Dominican Republic 100% Dark, Ecuador 70% Milk, and Saint Lucia 100% Dark. Wow!
So for those who are new to this blog, I started the Fast Diet to help me to lose my baby weight (and become healthier with promises of protection from heart disease, diabetes and cancer) and succeeded in completing 11 weeks of the diet before having a 5 week well earned break.
