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.

Why I workout

I work out for:

* Confidence
* Strength
* Health
* Happiness
* Stress relief
* The feeling after a workout
* The end results

Even when I reach my end goal I will still exercise, I can not see a world without it. My only regret is that I didn’t start sooner.

Don’t quit

It’s a slow process but quitting won’t speed it up. –

The moment you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle is about to happen. –

Don’t give up!

I started this journey properly 2 months ago, I have lost a stone and dropped a dreas size, I have had days where I thought I literally cba to wake up early and go for a run and I didn’t, days where I binged on crap because I am human, the next day I jumped back on it, I went for a run, did a workout, ate healthy and here I am, blogging, updating my journey through Instagram and I’m looking back and my before picture and now and I see the difference, it’s not what I expected at all, the amount of times I have given up after like day 3 and it’s now been over 2 months.

Point I am making is don’t look how far you have to go but instead how far you’ve come, pat yourself on the back, be proud of your achievements, carry on slaying and indulge if you want to because you deserve it.

Fear nothing

This time last year there was no way in hell I would of ever had the courage to post pics of me makeup free after a workout or upload videos of me exercising, sweating & looking a mess……………………..

But now the new me is someone who no longer cares what people think, I do what I want, when I want & how I want & the minute I started doing this without the care for what people thought was when I became happier!

Exercising stressed

When you’ve had a bad day at work the last thing you wanna do is exercise. Sometimes being over worked and staring at a computer screen all day can really take its toll after a while and whilst they say exercise is the best stress relief sometimes stress can have such an impact on your fitness due to the following reasons:

  • Concentration which is affected through stress as well as mental concentration which today I believe was highly affected by
  • Memory, stress effects part of the brain that deals with short and long-term memory as well as working memory which is what you need and use to gather information such as decision-making
  • Stress prevents weight loss and effects fitness due to the way fat is stored due to the specific hormones and chemicals your body produces. When stress keeps your cortisol levels elevated, your body stores more energy as fat.
  • Your recovery process is delayed when stressed because your system breaks down when your stressed as it impairs your body’s ability to deal with stress such as exercise as its resources are used up.
  • Muscle tension can be caused due to stress which causes injury when doing any form of exercising
  • Stress ruins your motivation even more when you’ve had a bad day which I can say this is the one that has affected me the most which is the reason I run in the mornings before work

So, as I have run for the past 3 days tomorrow is my official rest day which I’m happy about because I need a rest so bad especially after the day I’ve had but how does one deal with stress when your focus is about keeping fit and losing weight.

  • Herbal teas and lots of water avoiding alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and sugary snacks as it’s known for increasing your stress levels rather than reducing it even those as a woman if youโ€™re like me the one thing you crave the most is chocolate but if any think it makes you feel worse so it’s best to just always avoid it when stressed
  • Fresh air, yes, I I’m a runner but as described above sometimes exercise can be affected so getting out for walks and being away from the computer screen if youโ€™re on one all day can give your mind a rest as I learnt today when I stepped outside my office for lunch when I’m known for working through it all the time
  • Warm bath, scented candles and plenty of sleep and relaxation which I plan to be using tonight and some say stay off social media as it can make you feel worse but looking at inspiration quotes and pics can really motivate you
  • Talking to friends and socialising to take your mind off things, I’ve been known for bottling things up, but s problem shared is all times a problem solved, there’s a saying that sometimes when you tell people your problems some don’t care and some are happy you have them but if you know who your real friends are then share with them
  • Stress diary to right down what a stressing you and coming up with solutions to overcome it to take control off your life, I’ve made a list at the start of the year of where I want my future to go and things song change overnight, keep positive and start making those changes in your life

So, tomorrow is another day. 2 more days and it’s the weekend so I’m going to follow the above and try to remain as positive as possible as I will be running again on Friday and what’s not to be happy about when it’s Friday. I will be using my weekend to carry on exercising and being away from work should bring my spirits up a lot more and as they say, “youโ€™re having a bad day not a bad life” things do get better.

Workout Wednesday

So guys we’ve made it to Wednesday. Half way there, well done to those busy workers, students, everyone that may be like me and starting exercising and eating healthy again, were on day 3 of the week and it gets better after that as we are closer to the weekend. I did my run this morning harder then ever due to the fact that I indulged last night when I went down to visit my folks, I will not make excuses and say it was thire fault, it was all me, I had a lovely cottage pie and some ice cream, okay so it’s not that bad but on day 2? I felt guilty for a few seconds and then thought exactly what I said in my do’s and don’ts of exercising post, do not deprive yourself because when you do that’s the moment when you just give in and end up binging on more then what you first wanted anyway. So after I indulged I was satisfied and didn’t require seconds as the old greedy me normally would and I looked back at the past 2 days of me running 3 miles in the morning and thought “you know what Maya, you’ve done good” and I have. I’m proud that I am still getting up at crazy times of the morning and getting my butt outside for a run and I am proud that I’m still eating healthy and blogging my thoughts away which by the way is helping so much. I remember when I used to break my diets and then think because I’ve had a biscuit I’ve ruined it all and will have to restart it all over again tomorrow, truth is anyone that uses that is just trying to excuse the fact that they wanna give up and don’t care enough, having a guilty snack doesn’t mean you have to give up and ruin your whole day and start again. So what you had a biscuit, a cake or doughnut, still have the same attitude as when you started and you’ll still go along away and that’s the attitude I have right now and if anything anytime you do have moments like just get up and kill it in the gym or on your run, I know I did this morning ๐Ÿ˜‹
