Vitasoy Review And Huge Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Vitasoy

When Vitasoy asked me to review their organic bean soymilk range I jumped at the chance. Why Vitasoy? Well, it is made in Australia from Australian grown non-GM soy beans, sourced from a selection of five Australian farmers. These whole soy beans have no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives added. Vitasoy Original also has the goodness of soy protein, and is low GI. Soymilk is a nutritionally superior plant milk as soy has high quality protein containing all the essential amino acids. There’s not much more you can ask for in a milk alternative product; and when it comes to cooking it can be used in all the same ways as cow’s milk whether it’s, coffee, smoothies or breakfast. IMG_5259.Soymilk has a particular taste, as do most alternative products, but like anything new, you soon get used to it. Here I am  making a smoothie, testing out my Vitasoy soymilk.

SWITCH IT UP – WORKOUT SWAP WITH ANOTHER BLOGGER

You all know I am a workout junkie, it’s just my thing and yes it is my drug of choice without it I am not myself. My workouts are quite habitual really, I have always had a thing for endurance, be it running or out lasting, or keeping up with the guys in the Army. So when Fitness First offered me to swap my workout with another Fitness First blogger for the week it sounded like fun. Little did I know I would draw the short straw and be matched up with a super hot, young, body sculpting babe. So my typical weekly workout was given to the energetic Zoe from ZOMT, and I landed hers weights and all.

All good, not one to shy away from something new I got stuck into it, in fact I’ve done it for two weeks as I loved it so much. Nothing like trying something new and seeing results right away, that’s such a good thing to do when you feel you have hit a wall. Gets you back interested again.

Here is me after a HIIT workout this is how you should look after a workout, red faced, hot and sweaty, strong, proud and invincible, until your 3 year old runs up and hugs you and knocks your phone clean out of your hands like what did happen here seconds after taking this embarrassing selfie!IMG_5501

Zoe’s workout was great and simple to follow, basically in this format:

Monday – Arms + 20 Mins cardio.

Tuesday – Legs + 20 Mins cardio.

Wednesday – HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

Thursday – Arms + 20 Mins cardio.

Friday – Legs + 20 Mins Cardio.

Saturday – HIIT

Sunday – Die, no I mean rest.

Feeling strong and motivated to continue on this path, might put my endurance running type training on hold and see what continuing on this line of training will do to my old body. Might be the fountain of youth! Zoe also shared a really great recipe for a treat check it out below.coco-rasp-icecream-6

Thank you Fitness First for the challenge and thank you Zoe of ZOMT for the motivation

THE COFFEE TABLE WORKOUT

Sharing today another great do at home workout that is safe for you to try right now. I often hear I can’t afford a Personal Trainer, well now you have found me or I don’t want to join a gym, well I have joined you. This workout can be done anywhere really and all you need is your body, no equipment necessary. Below are four exercises I want you to try and run through four times. You obviously don’t need a coffee table that was just to get you to think outside the box.

First I want you to put your favourite fast song on and dance around in order to warm up your body. This gets the fluid moving in your joints and the blood pumping extra oxygen around your body ready for some physical activity.

PULL UPSpullups

Find somewhere you can pull your body weight up. Under the coffee table, kitchen bench, kitchen table anywhere get creative. It’s important to have a good strength to weight ratio meaning you should be strong enough to lift your own body weight. If you have somewhere you can do chin ups event better.

BOX JUMPSboxjumps

Start in a squat position, jump up onto the coffee table landing softly in a squat, then backwards onto the floor. Pick one spot to stare at, concentrate and go for it. This can be replaced with simply stepping up if you want something low impact. If you can manage this then do it as this is what will get your heart rate up. Up The Intensity: Non stop, no breaks.

BICYCLE CRUNCHEScrunches

Have your butt just sitting on the coffee table, arms bent behind you balancing your upper body. Extend your left get out, belly in, then swap legs. Up The Intensity: Two legs at once.

SQUATSsquats

Legs hip width apart, arms out for balance and squat your butt down to the coffee table then back up. Up The Intensity: Upgrade to jump squats.

COFFEE TABLE WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

12 X Pull Ups

20 x Box Jumps (or step ups)

20 x Bicycle Crunches

20 x Squats

Do each exercise one after the each other with no rest this equals one round.

When done have 1 minutes rest.

Repeat the circuit 4 times. BAM workout done!

Pull ups are working your upper body chest arms and back. Box jumps are your cardio they get your heart working. Bicycle crunches work your core. Squats are for your butt and thighs. So by doing these four exercises you are having a full body workout.

You don’t have to always go to a gym, you don’t always have to leave your house, you don’t always need the equipment they sell on the shopping channel. You do need to do something every day, and you do need to try this. Should take you 15 minutes, it will get you in the mood then you can go for a walk or run.
