Why #OfficeYoga Is The Way Forward

The importance of exercise when working in an office is huge. Sitting down all day can be really bad for you! If I don’t leave work at lunchtime for a stroll around town or to run some errands then I literally can clock up less than 4000 steps a day which I only get in because we walk to and from the carpark which is about 25-30 minutes walking a day in total. This is shocking!

Hot Pod Yoga: My New Obsession

You’ve probably seen me tweeting all about Hot Pod Yoga for weeks, right? I’ve been trying to get everyone to go to the new pod that’s opened up in Nottingham city centre because I’m a total convert.

One of my fave blogger gals Becca is a huge fan and I would always see her ‘gramming about how amazing it is. Another amazing lady from work also goes and we had a trial through her as well so I’ve been going for about a month now on the various awesome launch membership offers that Sarah at the pod has been offering. And then, luckily the lovely Molly from Rose Beauty Files set up a blogger trial afternoon with them at the pod so I jumped at the chance for another go.

How To Eat Chocolate Every Day (& Still Fit In Your Clothes)

Treats, sweets and chocolate don’t have to be seasonal. You can definitely have them all year round (I mean every day) if you want them! Obviously, some people will just say “duh” and eat it anyway. This post probably isn’t for you. This post is for people that think that chocolate and cakes are ‘fattening’, bad for you and generally a once in a blue moon thing. Totally not the case. They’re obviously full of sugar and aren’t packed with vitamins but if they keep you sane in small quantities then they’re totally fine and I think, essential.

BRITA: Bye-Bye Bottled Water

Staying hydrated is a huge thing for me. I’m constantly drinking water both to keep myself hydrated and I’ve also got into the habit of carrying water everywhere because if my Invisalign, incase I need a quick drink to make them more comfortable or after I’ve had a coffee and there’s no time for a full teeth clean! If you want to read more about my Invisalign course, check out my blog post with all the lowdown. Even if I’m just heading out for a coffee, shopping, into town or whether I’m travelling or going to work, you’ll always find me with a bottle of water. I find that I get headaches really easily if I don’t top up my beverage levels!

Fitness: The Importance Of Rest & Recovery

When it comes to training and fitness, as much as we’re all going crazy with the HIIT workouts, getting up at crazy o’clock and morphing ourselves into ‘fitness and wellness’ experts, we all need time to chill out and basically not be in the gym. Here are three things that I always do to recover from training.

The Trouble With Teeth

Teeth. They give us endless problems. I know this all too well as I’m right at the end of my Invisalign treatments which I’ll be writing about super soon! From pain to paranoia, they can be a real source of stress. A recent BUPA study revealed that bad teeth stop one in four people smiling in photos and I’m definitely part of this statistic. Do we care for the wrong reasons? Of course, you should care about your teeth, I do so much more since having my braces, I probably care a lot more now than I ever did. Proper dental hygiene is essential for keeping them healthy.

Results With Lucy Blogger Event

So, this is a funny post for me… I set up, managed and ran an awesome (if I do say so myself) blogger event at work for Results With Lucy last week but I also attended it as a local blogger! I thought, why not? I’ll be there anyway and I preferred to get involved with the girls and planned the event to be one that I would enjoy if I was invited to it so I obviously wanted to do it too! It was great to get involved and see blogger events from both sides, the organising, and the attending.

My Favourite 20 Minute HIIT Workout

Here’s another little workout post for you guys. I love a good HIIT workout and I’ve formulated this little one together from a few exercises that I really enjoy. I’m wearing the Davina F&F Geo Print Medium Impact Sports Bra from Tesco’s clothing range and I love it. Are you ready to sweat? Set a timer for one-minute intervals for 20 minutes – I just downloaded any old interval timer apps from the App Store, they all work pretty much the same. This workout is four different exercises and then you can top it off with a minute plank for a finisher!
