"Extreme" Healthy Living Tips

How extreme is extreme... well that is for you to decide. I called this "extreme" as I feel it is more suited to people who are trying to lose those last few pounds, but they are refusing to budge!! 

I have recently really got into healthy eating and understanding what is in food and what different food groups do to the body. So I have put together my top 10 tips on losing that last but of stubborn weight. This is only my opinion obviously and am sharing what works for me, so please leave your comments below letting me (and everyone else) what you do to lose weight and stay healthy. As I say in the video below, I think surrounding yourself with like-minded people who share your same passion and understanding of what you are trying to achieve really helps to motivate and support you. 

A healthy lifestyle is a CHOICE which only you decide to make. Will power is everything... stay string and don't give into the donuts.

Got My Hair Did

Like so many people, I quickly get bored of my hair and constantly want to change it up. I've dyed it most colours (apart from blue and pink) and had about two thirds of my head shaved at one point. Since having it shaved, which was of course inspired by Rihanna, I started to grow my hair and reached the length shown above in the "before" photo. However, with my hair getting longer it was feeling more and more limp and thinner; I was so over long hair and needed a change.

Thanks to Pinterest and the many celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Jessica Alba and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, I was feeling inspired by the LOB (long bob). I had done the long look and the shaved look so why not try something in-between... and I really love it. In fact, as soon as my ponytail was initially chopped off, I instantly knew I was going to like the style. 

I have never been overly attached to my hair and don't panic about what it's going to look like, which is all thanks to the trust I have in my hairdresser. I have gone to the same salon for the past 5 years and every time I go with the many images I save on my phone, I know that my hairdresser is going to understand exactly what I want and more importantly, knows how to make it work for me. 

The salon I go to religiously is called Glamorous and is based in Alness (Highlands of Scotland) - check out their Facebook page here for examples of their amazing work. They are all very talented hairdressers but I am bias towards one in particular - Jacqui, who is the owner and manages to transform my hair every time... I'm pretty sure she must be telepathic and as she often knows exactly the cut and colour I want before I know myself!

If you have a look in mind and want it styled in a way which suits your face shape and colouring perfectly then get in touch with the Glamorous team!

What I Ate Today #4

At the moment I am trying really hard to reduce my carb and sugar consumption and increase my protein and fibre intake... although it's a lot harder than you would think! I have definitely reduced the amount of carbs I used to eat, but everyday I am discovering new meal ideas and ways of getting more protein into my day.

Let me know in the comments below if you have any low carb/high protein meal ideas!
