Fitness Friday: iPad Apps

Blogilates
I love Cassey Ho, her workouts are amazing whether you're a beginner or expert. Her Blogilates app isn't designed for an iPad but it still works perfectly. There's so many little features like a calendar, access to her YouTube videos, a forum to get motivation from other Blogilates fans and recipes. 

PopSugar Active
Another YouTube based app with workouts galore that you can save. With hundreds of workouts from strength training, to running, yoga and cardio is a fantastic app to have when you need a bit of motivation and inspiration to get your work clothes on and get moving. I love their dance workouts and have made loads of 'routines' by adding together the videos. The featured section is a sure way to find a new video to get you active.

My Fitness Pal
This is quite a well known app, it's been around for years and is an easy to use app to keep track of what you're eating. By logging everything you eat and drink you can see just how much calories you're consuming with it all broken down into carbs, fat, proteins, sodium and sugars. This is a good one if you can tend to be a 'secret eater' with lots of little snacks adding up quick. It's really quick and easy to do, especially when you can scan the bar code and all the details come up instantly. The only thing I struggle with is judging portion sizes.  

The best thing about all 3 apps is they're all completely free!

Palmolive Smooth Delight Review



Palmolive Smooth Delight Shower Milk (Macadamia Oil and Cocoa) is enriched with 100% natural macadamia oil, as well as extracts of cocoa, which has moisturising properties, leaving skin radiant and lightly scented.

In the summer I love using a fresh, fruity shower gel but into the winter months I tend to turn to a creamier product and the Palmolive Smooth Delight Shower Milk ticks all the boxes!

The rich, velvety cream is perfect for nourishing dry skin in the colder months and the 100% natural macadamia oil and extracts of cocoa blend make for the perfect moisturising body wash. A little bit goes a long way and the gorgeous scent isn't overpowering but manages to linger for just long enough, normally until I'm all wrapped up in my pyjamas on the couch!

You know you've got a good product when your Dad keeps nicking it! He's got very sensitive skin and finds it hard to use any products with strong fragrances but this one is packed full of natural ingredients and doesn't irritate his skin at all. At only £1.99 I can afford to let him get away with it, but he'll be buying the next bottle! Perhaps we'll be trying out one of the other scents, maybe honey or coconut.

What products do you turn to as the nights get darker and colder?
