Fueling up

As you have gathered by my recent post I like to keep active, healthy and busy…  well anything to keep me from getting bored really.this is one of the reason why I like to go to the gym, keep fit and try and get as much excersice as I can.   At the gym I like to mix it up with both cardio and weights, yes weights as I hear a few gasps but I will go into detail about that another day . Anyway because I use the gym reguraly my muscles  get tired and fatigue starts to set in.  I know in the past  after  40 minutes on the cross trainer my calves used to feel a like rock and the next day I would be walking slower than  normal. 

Despite warming up and down, sometimes it did take a while for me to get going. However, not for long

I was introduced to a supplement called ‘Argi’ and since then it has redcued the feleing of tired muscles and kept my enegery levels up, even after the heaviest of workouts (complete conditioning is one). Argi is a sports drink which helps me keep my energy levels up as it contains L-arginine, which also helps reduce my fatigue due to the vitamins b6, b9 and b12.  I was pleasantly surprised after I began drinking it after a few weeks, I didn’t feel the normal tiredness after my workout and in was even able to keep going longer. Now I drink this regularly argi has the added bonus of continuing vitamin d for muscles and c for immune system.  Win win for me !  

I have even introduced it to my boyfriend who works out at home regularly and loves running, he reaaps the benefits especially after his leg muscles can get tired very quickly after a back injury many years ago.

So I am raising my glass (of water ) to Argi, keeps my going after my workout and doesn’t taste to bad either. ☺ 

 

The moisturising lotion which  ended years of searching 

I can not deny how much I have spent hundreds of pounds over the years on hand lotions.During the winter I like to look after my  skin, especially my hands which can get dry and rough looking ( or ashy as I used to say back in the day ). In the past I have tried them all, some were too oily, others smelt like antiseptic and a few just did nothing but dig a hole in my purse.

Since then I have narrowed my search  down to this moisturising lotion. I love it ! It is light on my skin ,  so I don’t spend all day trying to rub it into my skin. Plus the lotion is non-greasy and   minimal usage  required ( no more squeezing out lots into.my hands to get enough coverage ) . I have been using it for over a year and usually each one lasts for a  few months (yay) which is a world record for me. I used to replace them every few weeks or either lose them ( don’t ask !).

In the past I have purchased the latest ones featuring the perfect hands in the picture, listed all the fancy ingredients and immediately wished my hands were not like sandpaper.  So when I started using this lotion I was impressed, it keeps my skin soft and protected against every weather possible and it’s fantastic for a make up base. I love it  and it does not leave my handbag ! 😊
