New workout gear and goodies always motivate me to hit the gym if I’m feeling a bit tired of working out. It’s just great to mix things up in the gym and sometimes all it takes is some new leggings or a sassy new yoga mat to give you a bit of a rocket to get on with stuff! I’ve actually just downloaded the SWEAT app by Kayla Itsines and I’m going to give that a go as a bit of a refresh in my routine. Please let me know if anyone’s tried it in the comments or on Twitter.
FUN, FREE OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ON OFFER TO THOUSANDS OF NOTTINGHAM RESIDENTS WITH THE RETURN OF PARKLIVES
I’m partnering with Coca-ColaGreat Britain on this post and their awesome ParkLives initiative. For a third year, more than 25 parks across Nottingham will be hosting hundreds of free activity sessions to get us fit for summer. From Pilates to Nordic Walking and even paddle board (SUP) Yoga there is literally something for everyone of every ability – even buggy fitness for all those mamas out there.
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.
“I put together a team at the top of their game, with excellent experience in premium activewear. I challenged them to deliver a stylish and superbly functional collection, which was ethical through and through.
Our first collection, I’m proud to say, delivers. We’ve used materials and production processes that are kind to the environment, and our clothing is made in Portugal by experienced and fairly treated specialists.”
Slightly late on the ol’ New Year’s Resolutions but I’m not really a resolution’s type of gal, I’m more of a have an idea and try your best person. I feel like if I set a proper resolution, I’m more than likely going to pack it in but if I try and change my lifestyle a little bit at a time, it’s a touch easier to stay on track.
Now the clocks have gone back it can be trickier to motivate yourself to get up early and hit the gym or head to that class after work or uni when you’re tired and all you fancy doing it curling up on the sofa with a box of Milk Tray. I’ve got three tips to help yourself get motivated to keep your fitness going into the winter months.
As you guys probably know, I’ve been giving Results With Lucy’s new Beach Body plan a try for the past two weeks, I’m half way through the plan now so I’m just giving you a little update! I’m doing the Beach Body+ plan which is the intermediate level.
I’ll admit it, I’ve not done every day on the plan because I’m still doing Crossfit and I’ve been a bit poorly over the past week, but I’ve done a load of the workouts and I’m going to try out some of the recipes that they provide on the meal plan to show you guys what they’re like for my next blog post about RWL. I’ve not followed their ‘meal plan’ at all because I have my own plan that I work out with Luke which involves higher protein macros than in the RWL meal plan. This is just personal preference and because I’m not going into this plan completely blind. I’ve lost weight before, I’ve eaten clean before and I know what I’m doing when it comes to food. This meal plan is amazing if you’re going into RWL as someone who doesn’t already eat healthily.
I’m a giant gym junkie, and also an image-conscious girl, mixed with being a beauty blogger, this makes these products extremely exciting to me! I subscribed to Women’s Health and I got these babies from Nip + Fab, a brand I already like. I’ve used a few of their skincare products like a face wash and their Shine Fix which I love as a primer. On a side note, I love the packaging of Nip + Fab, it always looks great!
