Hey, hows it going? I'm back after yet another long break from blogging, but this time I actually plan to stay, full of fresh ideas and in a better place I'm ready to relaunch Dungarees & Donuts better than ever. At the start of 2015 I started a healthy eating and fitness journey and I have previously tried all of the diets out there and given up after about 2 weeks so this is the longest yet, and although it doesn't seem like very long to some I'm really into it and already lost 8lb of my 4 stone goal. I started my fitness journey weighing 12 stone 4 lbs and hope to end up around the 8 stone mark with a better healthier body. I also started at a size 14/16 and I am now also a 12/14 so I'm making progress, although I am currently using things at home to work out, I plan to invest in a gym membership later on in the year. I also post daily photos of my food on Instagram.
So I thought I would start by blogging about snacks which are under 150 calories, there are the obvious ones like, bananas, apples and carrot sticks but I thought I would show you ones for people who have busy lives or have trouble completely removing crisps and chocolate from their diet. I am currently calorie counting eating 1200 calories a day with a half an hour work out daily, so these are handy for me when I get peckish.
Some snacks which I have found to taste yummy and also to be quite filling are below: These include the boots shapers range which includes their healthier versions of crisps and they're all under 150 calories, good for us crisp lovers. Next is Propercorn, I have done previous posts on Propercorn as they are a brand I support and enjoy muchly, they have a range of flavours including sweet & salty, sour cream & chive and even sweet vanilla coconut and they're healthy and you get a huge portion size for the calories, I've found it great for snacking when I am in front of the TV. Finally my new love which is bars, I haven't always been a big fan of cereal bars but now their is such a big variety they've grown on me. I recently tried the Nakd bars and they're something I can't live without as they're so tasty and cure my chocolate cravings, these are good for breakfast on the go or even after a workout.
