PAY IT FORWARD FITBIT GIVEAWAY

Another awesome chance for you to win a great prize as part of my partnership with Fitness First. This time they are helping me to pay it forward by giving two lucky readers the boost to reach their fitness goals for 2014. Keep reading to find out more.

Just recently I heard about the new gadget Fitbit it sounded pretty awesome so I got myself one to try it out. Basically it is a wrist band you wear that tracks your activity and your sleep. You take out the device inside the band and pop it into the USB cable it comes with to upload the data it has collected. It shows you the following:

  • The amount and level of activity you have or have not achieved each day.
  • The amount of steps you have taken each day.
  • The amount of calories you have burnt each day.
  • The amount of sleep you got each night.Fitbit Giveaway

You can event take one step further and track your calories in and water consumption on the website. It is really a great tool for accountability and it is quite surprising to see just how much or how little you have done each day. Or more importantly just how little quality sleep you are getting each night, it tracks if and when you are restless and how many times a night you woke up.

I have mine set for a goal of 10,000 steps each day. Some days I make it by 11am just doing normal day to day things other days I hardly reach 4,000 due to sitting at a desk for those days. So it has really been quite eye opening especially how I seldom get 8 hours sleep at night, something I am now working on improving.

CHOC BANANA PEANUT BUTTER BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE

Breakfast is really the most important meal of the day from an elite athlete to a Mum on the run. You have to make time each day to have a quick breakfast as you really are breaking the fast that has been you not eating all night. Having a healthy breakfast is also a great idea as you are most receptive to nutrients in the morning after the big nights fast.smoothie

If you don’t have time to sit and eat make a breakfast smoothie to drink on the run. I love having chocolate, banana and peanut butter smoothies in a water bottle and drinking them on the way to school drop off.

HOW I MAKE IT

1 Banana

1 Cup Soy Milk (can use cows/almond)

2 Table Spoons Cacao Powder (basically raw unprocessed chocolate)  

1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder

1 Heaped Scoop Natural Peanut Butter (Must be Natural ie just peanuts no butter)

Blend all these ingredients together to end up with a chocolaty amazing smoothie that is packed full of protein, magnesium, antioxidants, vitamin E and iron. This is really a healthy easy start to the day and I promise it tastes amazing. Try it tomorrow, all the ingredients can be bought at your local Supermarket or Health Food store.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN HEALTHY CHOCOLATE

Not going to lie I am a bit of a chocoholic, chocolate is my weakness. So the best way for me not to pig out on it was to not have it in the house, trust me I could put away a whole block, of course we still have chocolate just not always. Now I have discovered a better cleaner way to eat chocolate, by making it myself.

Only three ingredients and a microwave and you will have a good substitute in the fridge ready for the evenings chocolate cravings. This kind of chocolate if packed with antioxidents, vitamins and minerals, ditching the trans fats, fillers emulsifiers and sugars that supermarket chocolate is so full of.

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOCOLATE

Healthy Chocolate #1

Melt coconut oil, mix in Cacao powder, and sweeten with stevia, mix and refrigerate.

Healthy Chocolate #2

Buy 90% cocoa dark chocolate, melt and add equal parts coconut oil then sweeten with stevia. If you eat the 90% dark chocolate on its own it will taste like dirt, but this way it will taste much better.choc

choco2

Now this is will be like swapping from skim milk to full cream or butter to marg, it will taste different but you will get used to it. So much so that when you eat normal milk chocolate from the shop full of fat and sugar it will taste like play dough. Just think how much nutrition comes with this kind of chocolate vs the store bought.
