February Degustabox

It's that time of month again, no not THAT time! Degustabox time!
Shall we see what's in the box! A rather yummy selection I think you'd agree.
What a great selection of goodies and my type of treats too! Shame I'm eating healthily! Guess the monkeys and hubby are in for a treat then.
These chocolate brownie bites from the American Muffin Company are gluten and wheat free. Very delicious and only £2.50 for a box of six. They did not last long here.
The Melba Thins are an ideal snack for early morning feasting or a late night supper with a favourite topping. I'm thinking peanut butter! They are £1.39 a box.
Using 100% natural ingredients this Laimon Fresh lightly sparkling lemon, lime and mint soft drink tastes very refreshing. Very minty but nice. It's £1.99 a bottle.
I've yet to try this Peanut Hottie but will be having a little taste that's for sure! The worlds first peanut butter flavoured hot drink. I can't wait. £3.00 a tub.
Lily O'Brien's cocoa cookie crunch. A new range of luxury snacking pouches for chocolate lovers. Hubby has tucked into these already! Priced at £2.00 a pouch.
These Beet It sport pro-elite bars are the worlds number 1 natural nitrate brand. An aquired taste! They are £1.85.
Luckily none of us have a nut intolerance as this Whole Earth three nut butter sounds and looks delicious! No added sugar and made with the finest natural ingredients. It's suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It's £3.00 a tub.
We love the Schwarts flavour shots and are looking forward to tying these two new flavours. There are eight different ones to choose from in total. They are £1.40 each available from most supermarkets.
This Jack Links beef snack is one for the Mr. The best quality beef is used in this on the go snack. Priced at £1.39 a bar.

A delightful mix of foods this month and as always exciting to open the box when it arrives to see what's inside. If you subscribe you can get £3 off the usual fee when you register. Just use this code 8X10A.

Week 9 Project 365 Round Up

Day 53. Up early to go to the gm and this is what met me on the car! Gloriously sunny but very frosty.
Day 54. Another glorious day we went to Pilates then went with big monkey and a friend for coffee and elevenses.
Day 55. Sat using the laptop and eating lunch little monkey was teaching me how to play a Duplo game on the iPad! 
Day 56. I was served pizza, cake and coffee by little monkey at lunch time.
Day 57. With both monkeys at school I snuck in half an hour at the gym and got weighed in too! 
Day 58. A little detour on the school run to grab this gorgeous shot! 
Day 59. Big monkey at football today! Poor quality photo as cropped & zoomed in to cut out other players. 

We've had a good first week back after half term and both monkeys are back to fighting fit and healthy. Daddy has man flu now though! 
Hope you've all had a great week.

Max and Tallulah - Book Buddies Book Review

We love receiving our book buddies books from Parragon books each month and were pleased to get our latest title 'Max and Tallulah a little love story' this month.
Written and illustrated by Beverley Gooding the story is about two zebra's Max and Tallulah. Max loves Tallulah but is too shy to tell her. She seems oblivious! As freinds Max sets out to try and woo her and in the end just needs to be himself. The story is lovely and highlights that you should just be yourself no matter what. The colours are striking, illustrations beautiful and I personally love this book.
Little monkey seemed to like listening to me reading the story to him and then big brother asked to read him the book at bedtime, and loved it too! 

Big monkey asked what the 'blub' said on the back cover and who had written it! I found this very amusing and obviously something he has learned to look out for in school.
He found the story easy enough to read at age 6yrs and asked questions too. This book is lovely and so too is the story. You'll have to read it for yourself to see if Max gets his girl! 

Find out about other titles from Parragon Books on their facebook, twitter and instagram accounts.


We were sent this book to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Chipping Away!

Another week and another weigh-in in my quest to be 3.5st lighter. I weighed myself today and am now proud and delighted to say I have lost 2st since the middle of November. 
Stupidly I did not take my meaurments until I started my detox in January but am also delighted to say I've lost a total of 17 inches since January the 22nd.
It's been a slow process and sometimes frustrating but I'm told the slower the better! I hope this is true. With the exercise as well, I'm sure I'm toning and adding muscle mass whilst reducing fat. I shall keep chipping away and feel this is a lifestyle change not just a fad.
The Fitbit and My Fitness Pal are still very much a feature in my everyday healthy eating and fitness regime. I'm loving sticking to target and seeing my progress each day!
