Life is one big adventure and everyone is more than happy to share the joys of getting older – earning your own money, getting married, having children, but what about the things #noonetoldme?
From thinning hair to the occasional little leak when you laugh too hard, we all experience surprising physical changes that no one tells us about. But, you know what, C’est la vie!
Tena Lites recently invited me for an afternoon of champagne, stress-busting activities and relaxing treatments to get me energised and to give me the chance to unwind. Of course I jumped at the chance and whats more, because my mama bear now blogs she was able to come too, yay!
We drove the 45 minutes to Leicestershire and arrived at the beautiful Champneys Springs. We were greeted by lovely staff and the proceeded to sit opposite to everyone else as we were unsure that they were the other bloggers. We’ve all been there!
We were taken to the conference room where we were welcomed with a lovely glass of bubbly champagne and then after a small chat with one another were offered beautiful sandwiches before we listened about the new products that Tena have to offer. Ladies AND gentlemen, it is really important you help yourself and do your pelvic floor exercises. Training your pelvic floor muscles can reduce little leaks, and improve your general health. Even your sex life. What’s brilliant is Tena now have an app for this too called My PFF – My pelvic floor fitness – to help you on the way.
We were shown the new products and also given a demonstration of why it is important you use a product that is made for its correct purpose as opposed to using a sanitary product. You can see this below:
Then it was time to get down to the nitty gritty of the ‘relaxing’ bootcamp. Let me have you now, #noonetoldme that fricking circuit was relaxing. I can assure you I am aching like a Mo Fo today and I also am now accepting how unfit I have allowed myself to get!
However, the yoga, although some moves were on the more advanced side was lovely and it was made even more special by being outside in the love spa’s ground and what was even better was the sun was shining and the wild life was misbehaving. It was a lovely experience.
After the circuit and yoga it was time for a cool down and a treat after all that hard work. We ventured back to the conference room upon where we were offered coffee and some delicious cake, the lemon cake was so delicious I definitely had my fair share of that yummy cake!
After our tummies were full and we were rehydrated with water and caffeine we were given the option of our relaxing treatment. ‘Head in the clouds’ or a back massage. After everything I have gone through with my new medication and my picking of my forehead I decided it would be best for me if I treated my head, I chose head in the clouds and it was gorgeous. Lovely smelling oil rubbed into my head, neck, and shoulders all whilst listening to waves and calming sounds. Beautiful.
#noonetoldme that half an hour would go so quickly when you are in much bliss. I thanked my lovely therapist for my treatment and went on my way back to the conference room.
We were given a lovely gym goody bag, a water bottle and a towel from Lights by Tena. It was a lovely day despite my poor mama bear falling over the steps in the spa and hurting her knee in the first part of our day. I swear I cannot take her anywhere bless her.
I now feel more inspired that we start removing the taboo more about these common issues that a lot women go through on a daily basis.
