Month: January 2017

Blue Monday, & not the YO! Sushi kind…

Hopefully people get the YO! Sushi bit or I’ll look crazy. 

Blue Monday? What is that I hear you ask, well it’s officially the most depressing day of the year… 

It’s pretty much the day where we are missing Christmas and the summer is to far away, we come to the realisation that this is it till sunny weather. 

It’s also around the time we start giving up on our New Years resolutions; I hope all you guys are sticking to yours. So glad I started my healthy lifestyle change back in November, I’ve been a little rubbish with food due to moving house, it’s the worst not being able to cook or anything. 

For me it’s a good Monday, even if I am working, I’ve already been up to the gym, wasn’t the best session I’ve had but at least I got moving, my personal trainer is such a super star for putting up with me. 

So there is a little update, let’s hope we are all sticking to your healthy living. 

Catch you all later you lovely bunch 

 

A little update…

I’m currently moving house, not been able to update due to such a busy schedule, my PC is all packed away, as is my desk, well basically everything I own. 

I’m still going to the gym, I’ve been a little out of rountine with my eating habits. Going to try and really get back into this and engage myself in better eating again. Get back into drinking more water also. 

I’m hoping to get my pc back up and running in three days but I can’t promise anything. I’ll just have to stick to mobile updates at the moment. Thanks for all sticking with me. 

Ladies lift also…

First gym session of 2017, I know I know a little delayed with it being the 3rd and all but it’s the only time I wasn’t busy. 

Somewhere down the line I want to be a power lifter so my personal trainer has given me a plan to start to get myself ready, not only are we lifting awesome weights we are also learning the perfect technique. 

This is my work out for today –

Obviously I’ve filled out myself what weights and what I achieved. Pretty much did it all. Not without complaining. For the last two months I’ve slowly been building my fitness, however you know what it’s like, whole knew programme and it feels like you are back to square one. Even typing this is killing my arms, but I’m so ready to become even better. Just hit two months in, I may have only lost a stone but by goodness I can already feel the benefits. Less fatigued, loser clothes and a boost in confidence. A little video of my warm up leg press. ​

Not much but I will start recording my workouts. Let me know if this is something you may be interested in. May even start a you tube channel. If you read this let me know. 

Catch you all later.

The first day of a 365 day book; 

Let’s write a good one. So follow my journey. 

So the stigma around 2016, for myself at least it was a good year, I went on my first holiday via a plane (had holidays in the uk) in June to Walt Disney world Florida; that was amazing in itself. I’m already panning my next trip. I also found my love for fitness. I managed to achieve this in my last week of December – Which I am immensely proud of, for this new year the only way is up, getting stronger and reaching unthinkable goals. I’m ready for you 2017 bring in whatever, I’m standing tall and will accomplish a lot. 

Today the first also marks two months since starting the gym. 

Take care and I’ll be back soon.
