Low Fat Iced Mocha #


So Poppy from Twitter asked me to do this post, its my new favourite drink/shake to have right now. I would suggest if your trying to lose weight, not having this on top of existing meals, but instead to have it for breakfast or lunch. If your not trying to lose weight have it whenever and use whatever milk/cream you fancy! Use sweetener for even less calories.

Important! Serves 2 

All this recipe to yourself = way to many calories! 

Ingredients:

200ml Skimmed Milk
1 Small Banana
1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
4 Ice Cubes
1-2 Tsp Cocoa Powder
1 Tsp Sugar
1-2 Tsp Instant Coffee (Dissolve in a little water and cool)

Whizz it all together in a blender and voila! Yumminess!

I love having this an hour before going to the gym as the caffeine and the banana gives me so much energy :)


Much Love,

Lots of people ask me to do hair tutorials, which is very flattering but I dont really do anything with my hair. I mostly just wear it natural with some product and a tiny bit of teasing. Today I'm wearing two twists either side, held in place with hair slides (bobby pins). I also roughly straightened the ends as it was a bit crazy looking this morning :P 
 
Also excuse my tired bags and imperfect skin, what can I say... I'm human :) 


Much Love,

Sweaty Betty Rant


So I got a few questions about me going to the gym so I thought I would just blog about it... plus Abby made me :) 
My local gym has a great deal on where students can get 30 days of full access to the gym, pool and classes for £25 which is great deal and I jumped at the chance... sort of :) Anyone who has a Parkwood Leisure Centre near them can also get this deal until the end of August. 


The main problem I have with gyms is the contracts which they force upon people... £30 a month for 12 months!!! What If I go on holiday? What if I have a month of exams at college? What if I run out of money? I cannot stand the idea of being contracted to pay when I may not be able to make it enough times that month to get my moneys worth! Also its a well known fact that most people who sign up for the gym, get bored and stop going after a few months. Not sticking to new ideas screams Onna! 



Anyway that mini-gym-rants out the way...Is anyone else really embarrassed about sweating in public, especially with very buff, good looking men around and tiny little women? I still do sometimes... and I thought all the buff and minuscule people at gym was a bit of a myth, apparently not! But honestly once you get there and get on with it its not that bad. If you're thinking of joining the gym, dont let that stop you! My one tip to you would be find a friend to go with: someone at roughly the same level of fitness as you, and someone who is motivated and reliable! (My friend turned up an hour and a half late today Grrr)

OK to the point of this post: at the end of this 30 day trial I was thinking of 'reviewing' my gym experience. Let you know my thoughts, my weight loss, and fat percentage loss... and if I would carry on? 

Let me know if your interested or if you thinking of joining the gym? Do you already go?

Muchos Love,

Domestic Goddess


My Victoria Sponge Cake with Whipped Cream and Jam, topped with icing sugar to make it pretty.

 This cake was inspired by Amy The Domestic Goddess 

Whenever I feel myself getting anxious, stressed or bored I bake. Nowadays I force my family to eat all my baking so I don't :) Oliver enjoys this new system.


What do you do to relieve stress?
