Spreading Awareness for Mental Health by @ckfitness1 .
What has brought me a lot more happiness and confidence in life is speaking up when times get tough. Bottling things up never helped my situation. I think we all experience times when life can be overwhelming and we can find it hard to cope. .
Looking back the last few years, I have done numerous blog posts on mental health and now with doing a lot of public speaking to a wider audience on my past struggles. I am really enjoying spreading a positive message and one many can resonate with.
My aim is always to inspire others with each post or talk that I do that need the help, support, and guidance. Someone mentioned to me the other day that do I fear what people think about all the mental health posts I do? .
My answer: absolutely not.
I don’t want anyone to go through the same struggles that I did.
I don’t do it for the likes and shares.
If my message can resonate positively with one person or even fifty people than I’m doing what I set out to do.
I don’t fear what anyone thinks. I’ll continue to spread much-needed awareness for mental health issues. .
I hope more and more resonate with this and are not afraid to open up when times get tough. .
Despite what many people want to believe, eating healthy does not have to break the bank. Many unprocessed or nutrient dense foods, like fruit, veggies, rice, beans, potatoes, eggs, dairy, etc. are quite inexpensive, especially compared to processed foods. But of all the macros, protein usually tends to be priciest. However, there are still ways you can eat enough while without a big food budge. Here are some of the least expensive sources of high protein foods you can include in your diet:
If you don’t eat meat, then Greek yogurt and cottage cheese are one of the best affordable proteins you can find. You’ll get around 24-28 grams of protein per cup (depending on the brand) for only a little more than $1/serving.
Whole eggs are the cheapest protein source there is, not to mention incredibly nutrient dense. Keep in mind the amount of protein for one egg is a little low (6 grams), and they are higher in fat, so you’ll want to include them along with other options if you’re watching your calories.
While using a protein supplement isn’t necessary, it can definitely be helpful if you struggle to eat enough from other foods. Whey protein is very affordable at around $1 or less per serving.
For all the vegans and vegetarians, tofu and tempeh are great options. Tempeh is high in protein and fiber and is a fermented food, so it’s supports gut health. Tofu has a little less protein but is still filling and versatile. Either of these can be added to stir fries, soups, scrambles, sandwiches, salads, or even eaten on their own.
Fish is one of the healthiest foods you can eat, but you’ve ever seen the price of a fillet at the seafood counter, you know it’s not cheap. Canned fish is packed with protein and very inexpensive. Plus, it’s shelf stable and portable.
Chicken thighs are usually about $1 less per pound than chicken breast, but both are fairly inexpensive. You can find either for around $4.99-$5.99/lb in most grocery stores if it’s not organic.
Meat is the most expensive protein source, but it can still be affordable.

Fulfil Hazelnut Whip Review by @tea.to.triceps
I've been waiting for the launch of this bar since tasting it last year at a Fulfil flavour lab and let me tell you THE HYPE IS REAL
Calories: 210. C15/ P20/ F9.7 a bit higher calorie than we're used to seeing from Fulfil but it's literally coated in hazelnuts so of course the fat will be a bit higher. Worth it. Contains palm oil - from sustainable sources
Texture: First off let's just look at the bar. Look at it. Mmm the texture I CAN FEEL IT ALREADY. If you've had barebells cashew bar I would compare it to that, there is an amazing coat of crushed hazelnuts in the layer of smooth chocolate surrounding the bar. The bar itself is pretty fudgey - bit of a chew to it, comparable to a milky way. It is a bit chewier than I expected but not a big deal. The hazelnuts add something really great to the texture
Taste: This is hazelnutty!! Which is some kind of miracle because often I find bars never taste like the nut they're trying to be. This nut .. is all.. it's cracked up to be (sorry I had to) 💃💃 ➡️Swipe to see that fudgey inside
Really though, it's good. It's not like nutella, it's more like light chocolate with hazelnut - which is really really great. It's very sweet, and more-ish (by that I mean I would have eaten 3 in a row, no bother). The most impressive part of this is how REAL the hazelnuts are and how they enhance the taste
9/10. I would eat this for days ❤️ (Why not a 10/10 like I gave chocolate orange? Because when I ate chocolate orange I was like 'damn I'm not able to tell that this is a protein bar' but with this one I think you can tell based off the chew! Not that that is a bad thing - it's just my criteria for rating bars)
I get overwhelmed at times that I should be achieving this and that. That I should be much further to where I am at the moment in my career. I overthink and overthink but when I look at the overall picture👇
I always need to take a step back and realize that life is pretty amazing. Worrying about the past or what lies ahead in the future can play on the mind. Taking each day as it comes and making sure life is lived to the fullest should be the aim.
I can be impatient at times but good things come to those who take action and don’t wait for anything to fall onto their lap. 🙌
It’s important to push yourself way out of your comfort zone. Opportunities lie when you do this. I’m 100% sure of it. 🙌
So what one thing are you going to do this week to push yourself out of your comfort zone? 😀
Let me know in the comments below 🔥
@Regran_ed from @atpscience - How does your Collagen status affect the appearance of Cellulite?
Collagen makes up the webbing like structure that lies beneath the skin that acts similar to a gliding sock to allow tissues to freely move over one another and stretch without causing pain or damage. As we age our collagen production begins to decline at approximately 1-2% each year. Cellulite is often suspected as a dermal imperfection issue but it is rather a collagen status issue.
Your body requires specific amino acids to make collagen and as such if we don’t get these amino acids in our diet it can contribute to the depletion of collagen and early signs of aging such as sagging skin, wrinkles and cellulite.
Why do more women than men have cellulite?
Women generally carry a higher body fat percentage and estrogen and it is as your collagen levels deplete over time, the webbing that collagen makes up becomes thinner and more penetrable allowing for these dimples to appear in the dermal tissue. Ensuring that you are getting plenty of dietary collagen sources, Vitamin C which supports collagen and avoiding exposure to environmental factors that contribute to a quicker decline of collagen-like: ✖️Poor diet. ✖️Pollutions. ✖️Smoking. ✖️Extensive UV exposure. ✖️Poor hydration levels. 👉Multifood and the Noway protein are an excellent collagen and skin care stack with the tools to assist in maintaining and rebuilding these collagen levels once again.

On such a high from speaking earlier this morning at SONAS for the Ennis Mental Health association for Mental Health Week. I was able to share my experiences on my past mental health struggles and it was amazing to hear so much positive feedback and input from everyone that attended. I’m really inspired to keep sharing my positive message regarding mental health.
Onwards from here 🙌

🧠 6 Mental Health Benefits of Exercise
BY @skinnytomuscled and @davidclearyveganpt
🙋♀️1. BOOSTS HAPPY CHEMICALS – Exercise reduces levels of the body's stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. It also stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators.
🙇♂️2. COMBATS ANXIETY – According to some studies, regular exercise works as well as medication for some people to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and the effects can be long-lasting. One vigorous exercise session can help alleviate symptoms for hours, and a regular schedule may significantly reduce them over time.
🤦♀️3. REDUCES STRESS – Exercise is a fantastic way to reduce stress as it helps to relax the muscles and relieve tension in the body.
🛌4. BETTER SLEEP – According to research, exercising consistently can lead to improvements in sleep over time, but not immediately, this is supported by a study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.
🕺5. IMPROVES SELF CONFIDENCE – Working out can be a great way to boost your confidence, not only will you feel better but seeing your body visibly change will do wonders for your confidence. .
🏃♂️6. INCREASED ENERGY – Regular exercise can lead to increased energy as you get fitter and improve both strength and cardiovascular health.
Not that I don’t enjoy eating steak and eggs every other day, but it is starting to get a little bit samey. I’m going to start being a bit more creative with my meals, stating with this one. Tastes just like stroganoff! The only changes I made to the recipe was to add mushroom, because I struggle to get enough potassium and some garlic. A great choice for meal prep too. This should last 2-3days 😍😋
