Struggles From The Weights Room

Hello peeps,

Sorry for not keeping in contact over the last few days, I spent Easter with my family. You can follow my doings over on Twitter but I’m getting round to replying to you all – promise!

I recently did a post that gave advice for women and weights, and it seemed to get a lot of comments based on the weight room itself and me calling it ‘the male area‘. So I’m curious if people feel the same (or different) to some more of my thoughts…let me know in the comments peeps!

Jealous Thoughts From A Blogger Who HATES Running

Hey peeps!

I just want to start off by saying thank you to all that have followed me over the years as I’ve reached 500 followers. I love the community on here and can’t wait to reach out to more of you!

So what better way to celebrate the half way mark to 1,000 than a moaning blog post. Right up my street. And it’s yours too, don’t lie.  First things first, I HATE RUNNING. Now that summers on it’s way, the runners amongst us are emerging and I am truly jealous of every single one of you. Here’s a few reasons why..

Priorities of a Fitness Girl

Hello again fellow followers,

Just a quick personal update for you all: I have officially finished my last studying term at University! All that’s left now is dissertation work and one essay and then I’m done. So, I guess there’s no more excuses for lacking on the blog postings…

As a student, I don’t have the luxury of spending my loan on whatever I want, I have to prioritise and split my money where I feel best. 9 times out of 10…it will be fitness related – is anyone the same!? Have a read and let me know I’m not alone or if I’ve missed any out!

The Worst Feelings A Gym Fanatic Will Feel

Hello fellow bloggers,

After the success of my last post, Best Feelings for a Fitness Fanatic, I thought it only made sense to do the opposite for you! And plus, it’s a chance for me to rant again – and I don’t think you’d be classed as biologically female if you turned down that oppourtunity.

Please feel free to comment on the ones you agree with or any you have to add…I’m sure we’ll be here all day…and quite happily too.

Starting Advice for Women & Weights

Hello peeps,

Something a little different today…this post is in response to a few questions i’ve received over how to start the lifting process and not feel like a complete numpty, so here’s my advice, to you, from me!

I started using weight training as a way of exercising for nearly 2 years now, and I can honestly say, I’m sure you’ve read all this before, that my results are on another planet when compared with cardio…so thought I’d at least TRY and encourage some of you lovely lot to give it a go…

What To Do After A Good Old Binge

Hello again people,

I thought this post is a very relevant one to me right now. As mentioned in My Reasons For A Bad Workout post, I’m home for the weekend. And being home for the weekend means FOOD. AND A LOT OF IT. Also, it’s a shed load of birthday celebrations in the family. So, I guess you could say I’m indulging right now. Like a pig in mud. And it’s great!!

But I thought maybe I could offer some tips and tricks (some of which I will be taking and doing myself when I return back to uni tomorrow) for any of you who’ve had a binge weekend or got one coming up or even just to keep in mind for the near future…

The Most Annoying Gym Questions

Hey peeps!

Before this blog post starts, I just wanna let you know I’ve opened up some new social media platforms for this blog so you can follow my life a bit more personally if you wanted! Check my recent blog post on it if you’re interested.

After a long, stressful week, I seemed to be getting more and more snappy with people. Whether it was the usual victim (my boyfriend), my poor friends or my family, they all felt the wrath of a stressed Katy. AND IM REALLY SORRY!

But a couple of questions I’ve been asked this week have really been bugging me, I’m not sure if thats the short-tempered stressy vibe I’ve adopted this week or just a clearer mindset but…I thought I’d share to see if they annoy everyone else as much as they do me. (it’s cool if not, I know I can be an aggymaggie sometimes).

My Best Ways To Take A Rest Day

Hello again fellow fitness bloggers!

I’m blogging abnormally soon after my last post about lazy gym hacks, mainly because I wanted to say a HUGE thank you as I’ve reached over 250 followers now! Should I make a twitter & Instagram for this blog? Would you guys be interested in that? Please let me know!

I love giving you guys entertaining posts to read. And it’s also comforting to know that some of the stuff I write relates to others too – I’m not alone!

Anyways, on with the blog post Katy. Today was my rest day, unexpectedly due to university studies taking priority for once, but I wondered if it would help to share what I do on my rest days with all you. It would be great to know what you get up to too, comment below and I’ll be sure to get back to you.
