Fitness | Getting a Personal Trainer - Rachel Emily Blog

Getting a Personal Trainer (PT) was something that I considered for years. I uhm'ed and ah'ed back and forth trying to push myself to take the plunge. If I'm brutally honest, I didn't think it would be worth the money. But I'll be the first to admit when I'm wrong.

I was wrong.
5 Rules to Follow Every Time You Shop; Rachel-Emily Blog

I know I'm not alone when I write the words a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. I even have a t-shirt that reads 'nothing to wear'. Oh the irony.

I have a particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long shopping career. Skills that mean I can justify the purchase of practically anything. I could probably justify the purchase of a new pair of shoes even if I didn't have feet.

Life is a bit of a strange one. One area of your life can be going well while another area gets hit with a wrecking ball.

Pink Energy balls on wood board in pink bamboo bowl

In my quest to replace some of my less healthy eating choices with healthier options I stumbled across energy balls. I mean who wouldn't want a little energy pick me up in the form of a snack?

My struggle though was real when finding a recipe that worked for me as so many recipes featured either peanut butter, almonds or walnuts and using substitutes I couldn't seem to get the balls the right consistency to stay as balls.

After much kitchen experimentation I have found a combination which works. It has oats for energy, no refined sugars and protein to help fuel your muscles. The taste fresh and will leave you wanting 'just one more'.

The scarf ponytail is my new go-to summer hairstyle. It looks chic, fun and on-trend while sweeping your hair back off your face, which is a dream in the current heatwave.
