Diet and Health

So going back last year as you guys may know I was very much about health and fitness I got my weight down to 112lbs! But then life got in the way, winter came, dealing with the kids, problems at school and the death of my father Inlaw... I lost all motivation.

Recently I jumped on a scale and was so depressed I'd gained 12lbs in less then a year. And as you may know the number the scale shows isn't everything but I honestly wasn't feeling good about myself. My cerebral palsy was becoming more of an issue with leg and back pain and my IBS was out of control I couldn't go anywhere with out being near a bathroom I was miserable.

So now I'm taking control and I didn't need to spend a lot of money on a gym membership! Tony Horton yes he is amazing and his P90X DVDs I've long been a fan of its not easy, it's not meant to be but you can do it!! I did make mistakes and don't complete everything...

But like Tony says " Do your best and forget the rest!"

I'm also using a Fitness pal app to help monitor my calories and I take Raspberry ketones before my meals to help me burn off fat quicker (totally natural)



I'd love to hear from you guys with tips etc maybe healthy dinner ideas

Surrender Melody Anne

SurrenderSurrender by Melody Anne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been a fan of Melody's writing for a long time. But she really stepped it up a notch with surrender. Gideon and Christen move over because Rafe is new to town!

I love a tortured character and this is exactly what Rafe is having been scarred with a failed marriage no woman will ever get to his heart again, he doesn't want love he wants a mistress- a business agreement. He acts like a cold hearted jerk and makes no apology for it. However he gets in over his head with Ari she intrigues him and he wants her

Ari is down on her luck having dropped out of school and in need of a job to pay for her mother's mounting medical bills she's desperate but won't sell her soul to Rafe no matter how much she needs his money.

I loved these characters and when there together they are on fire! Wow... I read this book in one sitting, if they get over there own issues they would make an amazing couple!

She brings out the humane side of him the side he's long forgotten and he makes her more confident which is what they need! So excited for book two.

Addison Fox - Merger to Marriage

Merger to Marriage (Boardrooms & Billionaires, #2)Merger to Marriage by Addison Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thanks to netgalley for giving me the chance to review this title by Addison Fox. Merger to marriage is book 2 in the boardrooms and Billionaires series. While I enjoyed book 1 I liked book 2 a lot more, The McBride sisters are AWESOME the definition of sisters doing it for themselves!

Merger to marriage focuses on Mayson the youngest of the three siblings. While attending her older sisters wedding she meets a gorgeous stranger who seems very attracted to her.

Feeling a little rebellious and tired of labels Mayson acts on impulse and has a one night stand that has life changing consequences.

Holt is a successful business man who's worked hard to escape his past. He has no idea that the intelligent beauty he spent the night with is his best friends sister in law. When Mayson tells him she's pregnant he's worried he can no longer out run his past.

Sexy and charismatic people!! this was a great power couple I enjoyed reading about there growing relationship and heated bursts of passion. Like the first book I felt this story was a little rushed but it was a great fast read. I am also a great fan of cross over characters which this had. I'm very excited for book 3.

Hayson Manning Wife in name only

Wife in Name OnlyWife in Name Only by Hayson Manning
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Zoey is the owner of a very successful honeymoon resort, it's gained a lot of notice. Now a huge magazine wants to do an interview with Zoey about her own great romance, the only problem is she's been separated for over a year and now she's going to have to ask her husband for a favour of a life time.

Rory is a big deal in the business world and loves the LA life. He hasn't seen or spoken to his wife in over a year but now she needs his help and he needs the good publicity after a few cut throat deals he's picked up the nick name Ice Man...so he's going to fly to Zoey`s island for the magazine shoot but hopefully will leave with his wife.

I really enjoyed this little read it definitely had a mills and boom feel and you really could predict the ending, but the hopeless romantic in me liked it. I love a rekindled romance and both of the characters where great. There sexual Chemistry was awesome like many relationships life just got in the way for them, and it was fun to see them get to know each other again and evaluate their priorities.

I couldn't help but think of Mama mia with the island setting and Zoey being a big fan of ABBA. Great read for those summer days!
