One Month Of Trying The DietBon Diet Meals Delivered Service


Every single New Year I make the same resolution, get healthier and lose some weight. Every single year I fail. I have tried every healthy eating plan going and attended slimming groups in the past and I always end up failing for a number of reasons, the main one being lack of time. As a busy, work-at-home mam of three, I struggle to find the time. I normally have something quick like a sandwich for lunch and then I make an evening meal the whole family can enjoy in the evening. When I have previously been on healthy eating plans I found I was cooking two separate evening meals most nights as the children did not like the 'healthy meals' plus I found the healthy meals were expensive or took a long time to prepare. 

So when DietBon got in contact in December and asked if I would like to try out the DietBon diet meals delivered service I decided to give it a go.

10 Netflix Shows Worth Binge-Watching

I don't know about you but January is a month where we spend a lot of time at home as the weather is a bit rubbish and we are a bit skint after Christmas. I am such a home-body though and actually like staying at home although it can get boring at times I do love nothing more than getting cosy on the sofa on an evening when the children are in bed and binge-watching a series on Netflix. At the moment I don't have any series to watch so if you have any recommendations of must-see Netflix shows then be sure to let me know in the comments below. 

If you too are looking to get stuck into a new Netflix series then here are ten Netflix series that I have enjoyed binge-watching over the past few months.

Things I Loved December 2019

We are now a week into 2020 and after a lovely break from the online world over the festive period I am back blogging and I feel so much better after the break. 2019 was a bit of a mixed bag for us, the first half of the year was good and we got married in the summer which was the highlight of the year for us. However, the second half of the year was not so great and as a result, this blog was majorly neglected but now I am back and I am going to blog more often again as I have missed it. 

One thing that I did manage to do each month last year was write my monthly 'things I loved' posts, as these are a nice way to record the happy moments from the month gone by. Even when you have had a rubbish month there are always things to be thankful for and that made you happy and these posts are my way of recording the happy moments. So let's have a look at the things I loved in December 2019.

10 Most Popular Blog Posts Of 2019

At the start of each year, I always sit down and look at my analytics to see which of my blog posts performed well and which not so well. It is always super useful as it lets me know what kind of content performs best and helps me plan what kind of posts to write more of this year. I normally get a surprise when I work out which posts perform well as sometimes the most unlikely posts perform the best. This year an old recipe post from 2015 received 46,400 views on my blog this year alone, the photos in it are shocking and it is an old post but for some reason, it keeps getting daily hits via Pinterest. 

My second most popular post with 18,500 views this year is my review of Pirates Village Hotel in Majorca. This was a holiday we had paid for ourself and went on in 2018, we had booked it a year in advance and we had been so looking forward to it and it was a brilliant first holiday for the little two. All of the other posts I wrote about the trip performed really well this year too. 

However, I only like to include posts written from the past year in my most popular posts so here is a look at the most-read posts from my blog in 2019.
