Last weekday run

When the sun doesn’t rise until 07.34am & you have to get your regime in before starting work 🙄

One of the things I hate about Autumn/Winter, the dark mornings which means no more 5am runs in the bright sunshine, instead it’s dark runs in a bright jacket & an attached light just so you can been seen whilst running in pitch black which just aint happening so……this is my last weekday run 😑 (which ironically was an amazing one) it’s now back to weekend runs only & using my weekdays for home workouts for the next few months whilst tying to stay as motivated as possible during the upcoming winter months, I GOT THIS!!! No amount of Christmas advertising & festive food is going to stop me which I say every year but the difference this year is that I’ve actually kept it going for nearly a year, I am proud to say that I have dropped two dress sizes and lost around 2 stone, normally I am up and down and I stop and start and even though I have had cheat days and indulged I have still managed to get up and exercise without quitting like I have always been known to do.

So this winter is the test, I always use winter and Christmas as an excuse and then come the new year I gain all that weight again and make yet another new years resolution to lose weight and get in shape, not this time as I’ll be one step again, I’ll already been in shape, be fit and healthy as I am today.

Motivated as ever, stronger, fitter and healthier as ever and winter is not going to stop me and people that let it are making excuses, food is life and for some people so is Christmas but don’t let one day of the year and the build up to it ruin all your hard efforts over the past few months, carry on slaying and reward yourself on that big day, that’s my mission 😁

80 day obsession

I am now doing “Beachbody on Demands” workout programme “80 day obsession” a series of 30/60 minute fun high impact workouts. Sonas the title says it’s an 80 day programme, yep 80 days & I’m going to complete this until the very end 😂

Out of all the workouts I’ve done through Beachbody on Demand this will be the longest one I have done & I have been putting this one off because this is a much more an intermediate/advancedce programme which I believe I am now ready for so…. I’m very excited to work my ass off, have fun & share my moves, routines & results with you. It’s not about being skinny, its all about being healthier, fitter, toned whilst looking good with & without clothes lol 💃

Using my resistance bands which are a fab little item to add to your workouts.

It adds resistance to an exercise to strengthen your muscles & push you that little bit further because the more you stretch the band, the more intense the resistance gets making the exercise harder, not to mention it’s affordable, lightweight & easy to use.

I use this alot for stretching, lunges & squats & soon I shall be using it for push ups.

Fav fitness quote

Start today & celebrate what your body can do which is pretty much anything you want it to!!!

The minute you start seeing that exercise is a fun activity and a talent that your gifted with that’s when you enjoy it more, you no longer see it as a chore or a punishment that you have to do because you’ve had something bad to eat.

I remember when I used to watch youtube videos of dancers, singers, artists etc and I wished I had a talent and someone once said to me you just need to hang in their, everyone’s gota talent and you just haven’t found yours yet. Despite that everyone can exercise I still believe that this is my talent, I love exercising, I love making up routines and filming videos on my blog and Instagram to share with the world and blogging out it, okay so I may not be a singer or dancer but I am a fitness fanatic and I’ve turned it into a hobby and hopefully using it to inspire others, so thats my talent and it’s something we have in all of us so there’s no reason for you to not go for it, not just with exercise to, anything you want you can have.

Weightloss results

Never thought I would ever share before pics of me but if it can motivate & inspire others then so be it, this is another throw back from a month or two ago where I was obviously a bit bigger & the after picture is me now. Again I can really see the difference in my arms, hips & stomach.

It takes trying on clothes & looking at old pics to notice this as sometimes you don’t realise just how far you have come, unless you weigh yourself constantly which I don’t, in fact I’ve not jumped on the scales in about 3 months & I own two, it is the worse thing to do on a weightloss & fitness journey, it’s just not needed because it messes your head up, this for me is enough to see how much I’ve lost!!!!

Goal plan tip

– Set your specific goal
– Set a realistic time frame
– Write your down your goal
– Write a plan on how to achieve it
– Set a start date *No excuses*
– Start your goal & think about it every single day

– In 1 months time go back to your goal plan & write down what you’ve achieved so far
– In 2 months time repeat the same steps above
– In 3 months time again repeat above + so on

– By this point you’ve already started changing your life for the better & it should now be a new part of your life & most importantly you should love every second of it, if you don’t or realise it’s not for you then make a new plan but no this, you tried & proved to yourself you can do anything you put your mind to!!!

– Whether your goal is to do with health, fitness, a career, money etc just stop wishing & start doing!!!
