A friend mentioned today that they hadn’t seen me post much on my Instagram this week, and in light of the very recent social media controversy about online life versus reality I thought I would share my current reality with you all to prove that I too am an honest, real person not trying to sugar coat my perfect life, perfect meals and perfect abs (and can I just say for the record I don’t believe I have any of the aforementioned!)
Something you cannot fail to have noticed when in any health food shop, supermarket, pharmacy and indeed even browsing the pages of fitness magazines and health accounts on Instagram is the vast array of supplements both available to us and seemingly taken by many people pursuing a healthy, fit lifestyle. But with such a phenomenal (and quite frankly confusing) amount of choice when it comes to vitamins, nutrients, and more specific lifestyle support supplements it can be hard to choose not only what’s right, but also what’s safe for you. So when I came across Inner Me “Nutrition Tailored for You” I was curious to find out what made their range of vitamins and supplements different from the myriad of others available to us.
But why supplement in the first place? If we eat well and exercise aren’t we doing enough for our bodies to keep them healthy?
I know these photos have been posted a lot on social media this week, but J Lo looks INCREDIBLE right? And is your first thought when you look at this “Wow she looks amazing”? Or is it “wow she looks amazing for 46”? Wouldn’t you be happy with this body at ANY age? Because I don’t see photos posted of, say, Kylie Jenner with captions like “wow she looks amazing for 20” (or however old she is before anyone pulls me up on this!) It really upsets me when people focus on a woman’s age – yes J Lo looks insane but why do we even need to bring up the fact that she’s in her 40s? Do you ever see people banging on about how fabulous George Clooney looks for 50-odd? No, because it doesn’t matter!
As you may have seen on my Facebook page and Instagram profile, last month I was invited by the makers of Figurite to trial their brand new anti-cellulite package of products for 28 days to see if it would reduce the appearance of my cellulite.
