Udos's Essential Challenge Update Plus A Delightful Smoothie

Hi readers, who's glad its Friday?!

I am so glad its Friday especially as I have the weekend off and plan to be doing lots of fun stuff! More about that another time, I have a little update on how I am doing on the Udo's Choice Essential Challenge you can read my first post about it here

So its been five weeks since my last post and I wanted to check in and let you know if I am sticking to my plans from the first post....

1. Take my supplements:

Tick! I am taking my supplements daily and adding the oil to some recipes and the beyond green powder to smoothies. 

2. No more then one take away a month:

Tick! We have not had one so me putting my foot down has worked, ha!

3. Chocolate once a week:

Fail! Urrrr this needs work!

5. At least 4-5 workouts a week:

Tick! Even though my back has been bad I have managed my 5 workouts a week sometimes I have just walked but I have been walking at a fast pace to make it workout and I am happy with that especially as my back is feeling so mach better! 


6. Eating more veggies:

Tick! We have been lots of veggie based meal lately which has been easy on the tastebuds and wallet so a win win! 

I am feeling really good with the food I'm eating and workouts I'm doing at the moment so I would say the challenge is going rather well, I'm looking forward to week twelve! 

Creamy Blueberry and Beyond Greens Smoothie in a Bowl

(serves 1)

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp cashew butter
1 Tbsp Udo's Choice Beyond Greens

1/4 cup water

Top your smoothie with anything you like I chose some linseed crunch : )


What food and exercise are you loving right now?


  1. Chocolate only once a week?? Oh this would be hard...Sounds like you're doing well though otherwise!
    I am loving seafood at the moment. I've been buying those fish pie mixtures (just a mix of different fish) and adding them to veggies and other bits and pieces for a random meal. So good.

    1. Oooooo those sound like a good idea! Yeah chocolate once a week just seems I achievable! Ha
