Punching fit

So I think I need to invest in some boxing gloves & a punch bag to get all my tension & frustration out & to work my arms obviously.

In the meantime I’ll just punch with my fists & use my weights to strengthen my arms, bingo wings hurry up & be gone!!!

Exercising with cramps

I think I can speak for nearly every woman when I say that the monthly cycle is the worse πŸ˜₯ (sorry guys) from cramps, spots, bloating, headaches, hot flushes & becoming a moody b**ch you name it πŸ‘Ή

I used to avoid exercising but I’ve realised that exercising is actually the best thing for youπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸŠβ€β™€οΈ because it lifts your mood (well sort of lol) & helps with those dreaded cramps.

Aside from running I’m taking up yoga πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ it’s relaxing, therapeutic & makes you have better balance, become more flexible & relieves cramps & back pain.

The one thing that I always need though or shall I say crave during this time is food! And no not healthy food I’m talking chocolate, crisps etc 🍫🍩πŸͺ but I won’t indulge all day I will have cheat treats using that first day as my cheat day as you know the first day is always the worseπŸ˜–πŸ˜”πŸ€’ but still working out to ease those side effects.

Shame I can’t do anything about this big ass pimple on my chin that I get every month in the exact same place. WHY??? 😠🀬 I will be in hibernation for the next few daysπŸ˜‚ – (morning workoutsπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈchilled afternoons πŸ‘πŸ›‹πŸ–₯ & early nights πŸ›πŸ˜΄)

10 exercises, 10 minutes

Gotta love Fabulous magazine when they have a section on exercises πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ

10 minutes & 10 exercises, theres a few I already do such as the squats, lunges and pressups but I can’t say I’ve ever done hip bridges, superwoman or the raise and curl πŸ™„

Will be adding these into my routine from tomorrow, I always love adding new exercise moves into my routine πŸ˜πŸ’ƒ

S

So far I am defo seeing results within my body, I properly started this whole weightloss and fitness journey in March/April and I remember when I was younger, like in my 20s I could easily lose like 5 pounds a week, through hard core exercising and healthy eating, it’s defo true what they say about getting older and if being harder to lose weight, I’m 31 in a few months and I feel I’ve worked so much harder then I did 10 years ago and it’s like I am waiting a lifetime for results for patience is the key, one thing I noticed straight away was my attitude and confidence, I am constantly more happier and positive, I am less stressed and I am more confident with posting images of myself working out or after a run with no make up on because I have found something I love and no one or nothing else matters, no opinions or the fear of what people will think because I started doing what I love and cared about everything else around that less.

Every morning I wake up in excited to go on my morning runs, I’m excited to so some home workouts and when people ask “how do you get up at 5am and run” erm the same way you get up every morning and brush your teeth or make a coffee of smoke, it’s a routine that I have got into and it’s just now part of my life.

One thing is for sure this is the longest in years I have kept if going for with the exercising and healthy eating, so far I have dropped a dress size, lost once a off my waste and arms and as I said before I just always happy, if only mode doctors would suggest exercising when people are depressed rather then giving them a subscription of pills like they did with me in the hope of getting better when really I just needed to work my butt off.

Anyway I hope you find those images useful, because as it says, just 10 minutes of 10 exercises everyday can go a long way 😊

Fat to fit

It’s amazing what a bit of exercise & healthy eating can do, especially when you stick if out longer then you have ever done before. It’s just a shame there is no such thing as spot reduction, trying to slim down my bingo wings are a pain in the ass πŸ˜‘ but it’s working slowly but surely.

Just like most people who have problem areas, it takes time, continue to wake up, slay, work your ass off & get the results you want.

Don’t aim for perfection because it doesn’t exist, aim for progression only.

Shakeology

Strawberry flavoured shake (comes in other flavours) which I sometimes add kiwi, bananas & strawberries to. Full of minerals, vitamins, proteins, plants & botanical extracts. I love milkshakes but hate that they are so fattening & have loads of sugar in so it’s nice to finally try something that actually has so much good in & taste delicious 😍

I started on this last week after my morning workouts & its been keeping me going, giving me more energy & also stopping me from snacking throughout the day plus helping me with my weightloss goalsπŸ’ƒ 😊😍

Team Beachbody

So excited to have this arrive today. I will be doing all the online fitness programmes which is basically Netflix for fitness and I abdoultely love it as well as all these products. I have already lost 4 pounds this week from doing the fitness programme and eating healthy. I will be sharing my results soon but so far I am so much happier, fitter, stronger and healthier and have not only found a new hobby but also a new lifestyle that I will never change again.

It’s weird how you stick something out for so long to the point that you get addicted and can’t see yourself waking up and doing anything else with your life except exercising, preparing food and sharing your new found love with the world.
