Myprotein Clothing - My Thoughts.

When I think of Myprotein, clothing certainly isn't the first thing that pops into my mind because that would be protein powder. I can remember being genuinely a bit shocked and excited when I made the realisation that Myprotein doesn't just sell protein and that it in fact has it's own clothing range.

Walk This Way.

Walking is, I feel, an underrated form of exercise. We all do some form of walking on a daily basis, be is walking to the fridge, walking to the office or getting the dog out for a stroll. I think so much focus is put on intense exercise such as running, HIIT, Crossfit etc, but it's easy to forget about the simplest form of exercise that the majority of us have right at our feet.

Snowboarding Wishlist.

I recently set myself a little challenge to learn how to snowboard. It's something I've always wanted to do and I've shared the beginning of my journey here. Anyway, I've totally fallen for it to the point where I just want to run off the Alps and snowboard my little heart out. One can dream hey! I've picked up some basic kit in the form of a jacket, pants, knee pads and wrist guards (the latter being well worth the spend for the sake of my joints!). So today I thought I'd put together a little wishlist of a few more items that I'd love to invest in when funds allow. I think the boots will certainly be next on the list!

1&2. Neff base top and pants - because why wouldn't I want to wear a doughnut outfit underneath my snow gear!! 

3. Burton bindings, I love the colours and I think they'd look really cool on this snazzy Salomon snowboard (6)

4. anon. helmet - not at bright as some of the other items on this wishlist, but I think this would go great with the kit I already have and might just reign the rainbow vomit look in a bit! Plus I'm keen to get used to boarding in a helmet as I know when I eventually get on a mountain I wouldn't want to be without on given that I have a track record of being the clumsiest person alive!

5. Burton boots, snowboarding boots can be a bit pricey and these are on the cheaper side of the spectrum, but my boyfriend has the men's version and they seem like a great beginner boot.

As you can see, I'm all about the colour, at least you won't miss me whilst I'm hurtling down the slope!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the bits I've popped together, why not drop me a line in the comments or on twitter @mygenerallife.

November Goals.

Let's start this post off being honest, I feel like I've been a bit of a slacker lately. I've certainly slacked with my blog lately (sorry little bloggy), along with being a bit of a slacker when it comes to healthy eating and just generally keeping on top of things. So I've decided that to drag me out of my slightly lazy little funk I'd set some goals to work towards throughout the month.

The #BeYou Project.

The #BeYou project is an initiative run in partnership with treaclemoon and Bullies Out aiming to encourage individuals to embrace themselves and raise awareness of how wonderful it is to just #BeYou. In the modern world, with scrutiny and judgement around every corner it can be really difficult to truly feel able to be ourselves, to embrace our strengths and quirks and put them out there for the world to see.
