Luxe Fitness – First Impression

My Instagram has been inundated with encouragement and likes in regard to my post about my Luxe Fitness Protein Powder Purchase, So I wanted to give a little first impression on my order experience and first taste etc.

Ordering and Shipping: The process was easy to follow and super quick, it arrived really quickly too, I ordered on Friday night and it arrived 3 pm on Monday afternoon.

Packaging: It came in a cute small box and everything was packaged safely in bubble wrap. The label and the presentation of the actual product is super modern and appealing, I’m obsessed with the overall presentation. It is definitely Aesthetically pleasing!

Taste Test: I got the Vanilla Flavor, purely because i thought it would be more universal in different flavored smoothies and would taste great with various fruits etc, But obviously I wanted to try it on its own first. I mixed it with milk for the first try as i find protein shakes tend be a lot creamier mixed that way and boy was it good!! OMG it was super creamy, and so yummy!! And I’m not a huge Vanilla person but i really enjoyed it, It mixed really well, it wasn’t lumpy or grainy and it was enjoyable right to the end of the cup. I have yet to try it with water or mix it in a fruit smoothie but I’m excited to experiment with different fruits and flavors.

As for any progress or the fat-burner, I will be keeping a journal of how I am doing and any progress I make, but overall, So far I am super impressed and i’m excited to see where it takes me!

Why all the Envy!?

Honestly the amount of false hatred caused by envy that I hold in my Heart makes me wonder why I’m not having heart attacks! I have a friend who is an AMAZING blogger ( like i have wanted to be a blogger/vlogger for over 5 years with zero motivation, and here she comes with a goal and boom she does it!) Then I know other people who have been vlogging on YouTube for 5 minutes compared to my 5 years and they are BOOMING! and here i am with my small outreach but instead of using that to drive me to do better, im moping about how everyone i know is better than me at things i have been wanting to do forever compared to their 4 minutes!

I feel hatred, i feel jealousy, i feel mad but the only thing i know for sure is those feelings are just a mask for depression and frustration toward myself for not getting off my now VERY fat arse and doing something about it, not fueling that desire by the negative feelings, instead i wallow… Yeah, real smart Kristy!

Side note: if you are or know who im referencing please try to see this as my journey towards self improvement because if i really look deep down, i feel those things towards myself, not you. My true and honest feelings toward you as a person is pride, pride that you are able to succeed at things im not, pride that you are achieving your goals and pride that you are walking your path.

Now back to inner rage… I sit here full from eating 2 pies, 1/4 bag of snake lollies, 1/8 block of chocolate and a late lunch of KFC and knowing that ive expressed this rage before and nothing, I have set goals before and nothing, i have even written goals in a previous post and still reverted back to where i was, i lose weight and reward myself with food i crave like a little excited puppy. So how do i change, how do i force myself to kick this inner lazy unmotivated bitch out of my head so i can start to feel pride for myself and reach my own goals!

I want to be a mediating, yoga doing, vegan who vlogs and writes her blog, I wanna receive products and items to review for people who care about my opinion, i wanna be able to jump on a trampoline with my kids and not sit on the sidelines watching my sister-in-law play with my kids instead because i exceed the weight limit and don’t wanna break it. but most of all i want to love myself, i dont wanna hate who i am, i dont wanna set goals and just not do them.

Have you experienced this, do you have any tips to help me, or do you just want to share your story too? don’t be shy, knowing you are not alone when you feel the most isolated is the best feeling ever.

#1 Breakfast Crepes!

I found this recipe from Maria at Happy Mum Happy Child (Do we see a pattern here) Shes popular for a reason guys!

This recipe is amazing! It made enough for our family of 4 and left us feeling 100% satisfied but not gross and bloated like some recipes can do

All you need is ::

1 ½ cups of milk

4 Large eggs

1 cup of Flour (we used Gluten free but you can use any all purpose flour)

3 Tablespoons of butter (we didn’t have a lot of butter left so I used 1 ½Tablespoons of butter and 1 ½ Tablespoons of Rice Bran oil)

¼ Teaspoon of Salt

2-3 Teaspoons of sugar (I like mine sweet so i used 3)

Mix all of your ingredients together in either a blender, Kitchen-whiz, hand-mixer or by hand if you have none of the above, we have a kitchen-whiz mixer thing so i threw all of the ingredients in the bowl provided and let it mix together for about 5-10 minutes until the mixture was foamy/bubbly

Don’t panic if its really runny- its meant to be like that!

Place your mixture into the fridge for 30 minutes (i forgot about mine so it was there for about 45 mins)

Once chilled- place your frying pan of choice on a medium to low heat (you don’t wanna burn them) and using whatever utensil you desire place a small dollop ( i love that word!) into the center of your pan and the idea is to tilt your pan like Gordon Ramsey to spread the mixture to the edges of the pan so your left with a very thin, almost transparent circle of goodness. During each cooking time DO NOT leave its side, they are very delicate and emotional Crepes and should not be left alone! ios_emoji_face_with_tears_of_joy they shouldn’t take any longer than a minute each side. Once they are cooked I like to place them on a plate in the over at a VERY low temperature, no higher than 50°c to keep the warm till your are ready to serve.

If you make this recipe don’t forget to tag me @spillsnserenity and @happymumhappychild or send me your photos! Id love to see your creations and what you thought!

Enjoy!

Tired Mom’s Winner Dinner!

Tonight i WAS NOT Feeling like cooking EH Neh Thang! Our whole house has been all different kinds of sick including Hubby so Its Mums Time to Solo Dolo!

So after not alot of thought and a friends Go-To In my Head I decided to go with the classic, Creamed Corn Fritters and Canned Spaghetti with Cheese. My kids are very repetitive eaters, they will eat things like canned spaghetti and macaroni and cheese every night if they could, so i was hesitant but honestly I wanted corn fritters so F%&# it! Let’s give it a go.

So in true Kristy Fashion as a simpleton I googled how to make Corn Fritters and I used this recipe from Kidspot.co.nz::

Ingredients:

3/4 cup plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon sugar or runny honey

1 large or 2 small eggs

1 tin creamed corn

salt/pepper

oil for cooking

Method:

Put all dry ingredients into a bowl (there’s no need to sift).

Add corn and eggs. Mix. If you’re using honey, add it now. The mixture should be quite thick.

Heat oil (medium heat) and drop spoonfuls of mixture into pan, fry until bubbles form or until golden then flip. They puff up so you don’t need much, I use either a teaspoon or half a tablespoon of mixture for toddler sized fritters.

You can add bacon, sweet chili sauce or anything to make it a bit more interesting.

These take next to no time and you can make them in big batches and freeze as well. Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, delicious! Good for any time of the day. Try it!

It was the easiest recipe to follow and tasted amaze! The kids didn’t each much as expected but if i offer them to the kids more they might adjust to something new- probably didn’t help that they devoured their spaghetti first!

Comment below or tag me on Instagram or Facebook if you give this recipe a go! I would love to see your renditions!
