How do you know it's time for a rest day. When your Heart rate monitor tells you that your #heartrate is 20 - 30% higher than normal on your last two #training runs. Also my resting heart rate has been higher in the morning. Listen to your body to prevent any unwanted #injuries due to #fatigue.

Dark Chocolate #muffins just out of the oven. No idea what the #macros are but they are from @emma_finnegan_ so they are as healthy as can be. Can anybody guess the secret ingredient that makes them healthy 😉.

Last out of the @leydenssportsnutrition box of #goodies is the @scitecnutrition chocolate cookies and cream flavour #wheyprotein. The macros per serving 30g serving are Calories 112 Fat 2.0g (.7 Saturated) Carbohydrate 1.4g (sugars 1.4) Protein 22g It also contains key amino acids l-leucine 100mg L-Glutamine 210mg Taurine 990mg Taste wise it's very nice and the flavours are not to overpowering like some protein powders. It mixes well both in a shaker and with almondmilk in #prooats for a tasty snack. I added a tspn of #cinnamon also. Out of 10 I'd give it an 8 but that's only because I started using it in the last few days. If your a fan of the @fulfil_nutrition and @barebells.ie cookies and cream flavours then this is one you should try. #aminoacids #oatporn #corkfitfam #scitecnutrition© #protein #cleaneats #healthyfood #porridge #proats #igfitness #fitspo #fitness #fitspiration #gym #gainz #proteinpancakes #fitfam #irishfitfam #ukfitfam #healthy #healthyeating #iifym #lsnreview #chocolateoats #macros #igfitness
My better half had this for dinner so this review is not my own. In her words the pasta was just like eating gloppy stuck together food while the meatballs were pretty bland and tasteless. The macros are pretty good but I'm afraid the taste leaves it very disappointing Out of 10 she gave it a 3 but overall was very disappointed. These pre made meals may serve a purpose for those with busy lives and very little time to cook but honestly you can't beat cooked home food that you know exactly what you are putting into them. You can beat your own #spices and #flavours for getting the combination right. #foodie #blogger #lsnreview #corkfitfam #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness #iifym #turkey #pasta #mealprep #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #macros #healthylifestyle #fitfood #mealprep #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #gym #irishfitfam #fitnessblogger
BBQ chicken and brown rice for dinner courtesy of @leydenssportsnutrition and @performancemeals. To be honest the less said about this the better. The rice is so dry and the chicken just feels very processed. I'd also question the macros in it as the chicken was so small when cooked so I'm not sure where the 40g #Protein comes from. I couldn't even finish the #meal as it just didn't do it for me. I don't think I would try them again #lsnreview #corkfitfam #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness #barebells #iifym #chicken #rice #cleaneats #running #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #macros #healthylifestyle #fitfood #mealprep #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #gym #irishfitfam
@barebells.ie #strawberry white #chocolate #protein crisps A different flavour of the @barebells.ie snack and they are much sweeter than the previous chocolate one but the texture is ok. Taste is not to sweet nice but the amount of sugar would stop me eating them on a regular basis. A treat once every now and again comes to mind. Again would go very well in #greekyogurt as a snack. #Macros per 100g serving although the pack is 77g 487 calories 31.8 Fat (saturated 26.6) Carbs 14.5 (sugars 7.7) Protein 25.9g Their very calorific so bear that in mind when you can't put the packet down. #lsnreview #corkfitfam #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness # #iifym #healthysnack #cleaneats #running #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #macros #healthylifestyle #marathontraining #runnersofinstagram #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #gym #irishfitfam
Had this @nudestfoods smoothie today as a pre #training snack and the texture is a bit thicker than what I'm used to but it's still pretty tasty. It's got bananas, oats, honey with Greek style yogurt and contains 156 calories per pouch. It's very filling and the macros are 2.8g Fat (0.2 saturated) 27g Carbohydrate (20g #sugar) 4.8g Protein. The sugar may be slightly high but I presume the honey and fruit accounts for that. Again like everything it's about Moderation of everything and if you like the contents above you'll find this pretty easy on the palette #lsnreview #corkfitfam #banana #oats #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness #cleaneats #iifym #greekyogurt #running #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #healthylifestyle #marathontraining #runnersofinstagram #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #gym #snack #honey #smoothie #fruit #healthybreakfast #foodie #iifym #macros
Just completed the 10 day @active_iron #supplement for @leydenssportsnutrition so time to give my honest opinion on them. They are very easy on the stomach but I never really suffered from issues with iron tablets previously so it's hard to judge. The last week I have definitely seen the benefit in terms of alertness as its been a busy week training wise. I'd use them again and maybe over a longer period there might be more benefits but for now they get a thumbs up. They can be taken on a empty stomach also. They may benefit #females more so due to them needing more than #males. #lsnreview #corkfitfam #iron #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness #supplements #iifym #vitamins #running #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #healthylifestyle #marathontraining #runnersofinstagram #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #gym #glutenfree
@little_dragon_supplements #lcarnitine water. I got this in tropical flavour and fruit mx and it's a nice refreshing drink. Tastes as expected on both flavours and according to the bottle contains #ginseng. Green tea and B vitamins 3,6 and 12 A full bottle contains only 10 calories and it's best served chilled. A nice way to increase your water intake during the day and best of all its sugar free. Out of 10 I'd give it a 9. #lsnreview #corkfitfam #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness #vitamins #iifym #hydrate #supplements #running #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #macros #healthylifestyle #marathontraining #runnersofinstagram #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #tropical #irishfitfam #greentea #igfitness #fitfood #sugarfree
@barebells.ie #chocolate protein crisps. Another superb tasting product from @barebells.ie @barebells. There more like balls than crisps but the texture and flavour is just the same as the #proteinbars, they are that tasty. They would go very well in #greekyogurt as a snack. #Macros per 100g serving although the pack is 77g 468 calories 29.6g Fat (saturated 24.6) Carbs 12.2 (sugars 5.9) Protein 26g Their very calorific so bear that in mind when you can't put the packet down. It could be a struggle to fit them into you daily calorie total but overall the are definitely one to try #lsnreview #corkfitfam #fitfam #ukfitfam #fitness # #iifym #healthysnack #cleaneats #running #igfitness #instafit #fitnessfood #macros #healthylifestyle #marathontraining #runnersofinstagram #fitnessjourney #fitnessaddict #irishfitness #gym #irishfitfam
Just a quick post for anybody that uses cardio machines to track calories burned during workouts. On the top picture the #treadmill told me that I burned 514 #calories for a 5 mile run. The bottom picture shows the burned on my #garminforerunner235. Now I'm not saying either is exactly accurate but the garmin uses my age/weight and #heartrate monitor to calculate the calories burned versus a treadmill. You can see the difference of over 150 calories. Multiply the by 4 or 5 days and it's a big difference. Personally I would believe the @garminforerunner and use that total for calorie tracking. #garmin #personaltrainer #indoorrunning #gym #fitfam #irishfitfam #fitspo #ukfitfam #trainsmart #nutrition #healthylifestyle #health #fitspo #running #weightloss #marathontraining #fitness #corkfitfam #dublinfitfam #fit #workout #motivation #healthy #igfit #distancerunner #fitnessjourney #fit #fitlife
Jimbo’s Fruit Chips Rio Mix I tried these but to be honest there not something I would try again. The flavours are ok and they actually do taste like the fruit your supposed to be eating, but the texture just tastes not right I even tried the kids with some but they handed the bowl back I don't think we'll be trying them again. Out of 10 I'd give them a 2 maybe 3.

I used these today after a #strenghtraining and #indoorcycling class and I have to say these are very tasty. I used the #pomegranate flavour in my #proats mixed with some #whey and it added a refreshing flavour to the oats. The passion fruit flavour is very subtle in the #coconutwater and again it's very refreshing. There best served chilled especially the natural flavour one. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a refreshing drink especially with the summer days just around the corner.

Some @scitecnutrition #beefjerky for review today. Had this after a double session of 5 mile run and a #polarspin #indoorcycling class. The chilli flavour is mild and not very over powering while the original flavour is exactly what it says on the pack. Personally I wouldn't be a fan of it as I didn't like the texture but don't let that put you off if your a fan of beef jerky. I just found it a bit too chewy. A convenient #snack all the same and a good way of increasing your protein content if busy or out and about. The macros per 25g pack are 76 kcal 1.4g Fat (saturated .6) 1.5g Carbohydrate (1.4 g sugars) 13g Protein #lsn #lsnreview #cleansnack #corkfitness #irishfitfam #irishfitness #protein #gainz #gains #food #fitfam #igfit #healthy #fitspo #fitspiration #nutbutter #instafit #iifym #macros #runnersworld #runner #marathontraining #spinning #corkfitfam #ukfitfam #irishfitfam
Another day another review of some goodies from @leydenssportsnutrition and @barebells.ie. This time it's the #hazelnut cream spread. To be honest the taste is minimal and it's more a chocolate cream taste but again it's very nice, in fact a little too nice. The biggest danger is not being able to stop once you've started eating it. It even passed the kids test. I have been using 15g on #ricecakes as an afternoon snack or prior to training. The macros per 100g are Kcal - 525 Fat - 37.5 ( Saturated 7.8) Carbs 33.1 ( Sugars 7.3) Protein 21.8. If you like #Chocolate spread then you will definitely like this. Rating out of 10 would be an 8 and just be careful that you don't forget to put the top back on after you've had your macro allowance 😉. #corkfitfam #lsnreview #nutellaalternative #irishfitfam #irishfitness #protein #pretraining #gains #food #fitfam #igfit #healthy #fitspo #fitspiration #nutbutter # #instafit #iifym #macros #runnersworld #runner #marathontraining #fitness #fitnessjourney #foodies #igfood #ukfitfam
1st review of the @performancemeals dinners from @leydenssportsnutrition. First up is the lemon and herb chicken with sweet potato mash. I prefer to make and prepare my own food freshly but this served it's purpose. They do not need to be refrigerated and can be eaten hot or cold. They are ready to eat after 3 minutes in the microwave Flavour wise it was just ok and I'd be dubious about the #macros in it as it did not leave me feeling full. There was not a lot of chicken in the portion itself. The #sweetpotato mash tastes ok and there's also some lentils , onions and red peppers in the sauce. The macros per portion are 388 #kcal 6.9g #fat (3.9g saturated) 48g #carbohydrate (11.2g which sugars) 33.1g #protein. Overall I'd give it a 6 out of 10 but that's because I prefer to use my own spices and fresh food . It might suit those who are too busy to cook their own lunch dinner more so #lsnreview #highcarb #lowfat #fitfood #foodie #irishfoodie #runner #runnersofinstagram #readymademeals #performancemeals #lsn #healthy #healthyeating #ukfitfam #fitfam #irishfitfam #iifym #motivation #igfitness #reviews #corkfitfam #personaltrainer #indoorcycling
