ShakeSphere V2 (review)

 

Hey guys!

So if you have been keeping up with my YouTube channel and weight loss journey you will know I have kicked up my exercise. Since my time is more limited, I am always on the look out for products/gadgets to make life easier.

I am also starting to look into protein powders as after a workout I don’t want to eat and we all need protein to help repair our muscles.

I’ve seen so many bottles on the market, cheap to buy, includes a mixing ball and the reviews are ok, mainly used as throw away bottles. I didn’t want any of that and with further research I found ShakeSphere!

ShakeSphere is different than other bottles I have found. It has a spherical inside so no corners for food to stick in to; such a plus! I know with my smoothie bottles I’ve not washed them right away then it’s been a nightmare to clean; now don’t go yuck, you know you’ve been there 😉😅 with no corners you can clean it easily!

You can make a banana smoothie without the need for a smoothie maker. Perfect for those on-the-go or those short on time. You can make an omelette, fair enough it isn’t the prettiest thing, but because the bottle is microwave safe it’s so handy to use. I don’t like reheating egg so being able to have an omelette at work and only need one bottle is fab!

You get a wee keyring with some recipes but there’s a lot of different videos on the ShakeSphere website and YouTube channel, so be sure to check them out!

I love that the top of the bottle is so easy to drink out of, it has a sliding cap and is leak proof.

 

I’ve been using it for water infused with cucumber while out walking and on the treadmill, ah refreshing! It holds 700mls and it has measurements on the side, which is such a must these days when you are tracking food and liquids.

It has a section for pills, you can put your pre-work out in, BCAA’s, vitamins or pain killers. I currently use the space for my vitamin d and iron tablets.

I was so excited to find a snack pot at the bottom. Perfect for protein powder, nuts or peanut butter. I also use the bottle to carry my fruit in the main part and put peanut butter in the snack bottom to dip my apple into.

Tip: if you cut up your Apple, drop some lemon juice onto it and it will stop it from turning brown.

The ShakeSphere V2 is BPA free. It comes in a range of colours, but of course I wanted the pink one! It can be stored in the freezer, fridge, used in the microwave and it’s dish washer safe; all kinds of awesome!

Final Thoughts

I really love this bottle, yes LOVE! I haven’t had any problems, no leaks and it lives up to everything it promises. There’s nothing I don’t like but if I was being super picky, and trust me this is, at the bottom where you put your pills in, the plastic rotates around, maybe if there was a way to make the inside turn instead like a wheel and the outer stayed in contact.

It has great features, the colour is fantastic and it is leak proof, there isn’t much else you can ask from the ShakeSphere V2.

So if you like the sound of the ShakeSphere V2 then pop over to their website to check out more info and videos.

Low syn “Haribo” style sweets 

Halloween is coming and having children there will be sweets everywhere. My self control will be tested so what other way than to plan. So I decided to try slimming world sweets, really simple and they work! They don’t taste like harbio but they’re like jelly sweets and will certainly do the trick for me.

What you will need;

  • Ice cube silicone moulds
  • Cupcake silicone (also work for bigger sweets)
  • One sachet Hartley’s sugar free jelly (1.5 syns)
  • One sachet of gelatine
  • 1/2 pint of boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons of fat free yogurt

Boil you kettle. Fill a jug up to 1/2 pint. Then stir in the gelatine, you will need to stir this well. Then add in your jelly and mix.

Next you will need to fill each section of your mould up half way. Once done place in the fridge to set for 20mins.

I let the remaining mixture cool for 5 mins, then add in the yogurt and mix well.

Once the 20mins is up take the moulds out and fill them up with the yogurt, jelly mixture. If you’ve any left mixture left over, fill the cupcake moulds as they work well for larger sweets. Then chill for another 20 mins or until set.

102lbs lost. Weigh in update

Hi Guys!
So I did it!! I went to weigh in on Tuesday night and lost 3.5lbs taking it to 102lbs or 7st 4lbs lost! I can’t quite believe it ❤️ and I got slimmer of the week, chuffed!


I can now feel the change in my body. I know this may sound bizarre but being so huge I never felt the first few stone made any difference. I was able to physically do more but couldn’t actually feel it. I wish I took more photos but I honestly didn’t believe in myself that I would make it to this point and I’m so upset I ever doubted myself. 

Now I can feel the changes on my body, I can finally see I am smaller, I feel lighter. 

Honest changes;

  • My bum fits in my own chair
  • I don’t knock people on the bus anymore with my arms
  • I also fit into my own chair on the bus
  • I can cut my toenails without struggling
  • Shave/Wax areas that so needed it 😂
  • Cross my legs, wow that feels amazing!
  • Strangers talking to me without looking at my weight first
  • My hair everywhere grows quickly
  • My skin has cleared up
  • I don’t get sick as often

There are so many little and big changes that have changed my life, every day I’m finding something new. It is crazy and I love it! I love it so much! 

I have attached this weeks weigh in video, hope you enjoy and if you want to watch my journey from the start then head over to my YouTube, grab a cuppa and watch 💕 

Here’s to the next 4st 3lbs 🙌🏻 this time next year I will be at target 💪🏻🎉 

Thank you for all your support it means the absolute world to me ❤️ x

Woman of the Year 2016

Hey guys!

So let’s jump right in. Around 1.5 months ago I was award Woman of the Year 2016 this was an amazing achievement, to think my group found me in any way inspirational is a real honour.

I never thought I would inspire anyone on my journey but if I do I’m so happy! I am thankful for each person I’ve met at group and online. The support when you need it is so fantastic! 

Being given such an award boosted my confidence a little. I have such self doubt and my confidence is still low but it is higher than it has ever been before and I hope with time it will grow more. I just want to look at my achievements and see I have done good. Another reason I am posting about WOTY is to appreciate it and realise that I am doing ok. I just want to point out I’m not being cocky, it is ok to accept you’ve done good and be proud. 

So my advice is be proud of your achievements no matter what they are. Life is hard, this journey is challenging and progress is progress. 

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart ❤️
