Traits Of A Bad Workout Partner

Hello lovelies,

If you haven’t already, be sure to vote in my poll that’s completely anonymous. It’s helping me decide whether to vlog on youtube…eek. It can be found on my side bar or if you’re on your mobile, right at the bottom of this post (past comments). THANKS LOVE YA!

Happy May! This weeks blog post is all about company. Bad company. I’ve always been a lone wolf when it comes to my workouts, and there’s good reason for it. All the experiences I’ve had with exercising in pairs/groups have been awful and thought I’d share incase other’s have felt the same…it would make me feel better for being a loner in the gym…

Secret Wishes Of A Health & Lifestyle Blogger

Hey peeps,

Before I start this weeks blog post, I just want to direct you to my amazing new header! It’s had a major re-vamp and it’s all down to Yaansoon over at Yaansoon Illustrations. I am obsessed with it! It was done by freehand with water colour and ink, check a video here on how it was done or simply check out their blog for more designs that could suit your blog too! It’s so gorgeous and perfect for a lifestyle blog. I hope you like it as much as I do…let me know what you think guys pretty please!

This week, I’ve been thinking about bloggers who have made it big and how at some point we wish we were them (and then snap back to reality). I think we can all relate in being a little envious of these people at times right? So I thought I’d put together some things that we all do and then wish for the best possible outcome…

Taking Progress Pictures Confessions

 

Hello again fellow fitness bloggers,

It was my birthday yesterday! I am officially 21, meaning responsibilities have automatically increased and I’m expected to be more mature…hm…cue blog post on selfies! 

I think we’re all guilty of taking a few full body selfies to either help track our progress or just for the sake of it, because why not. Whether we’ve kept it private on our phones in amongst pictures of food and random screenshots. Or we’ve published them on our blogs for all to see (a very scary, but amazing thing to do for your self-confidence and anxieties).

If any of you follow me on instagram, you’ll know I love a good selfie or two, so why not admit to some confessions I have when taking them? You guys seem to love the more honest blog posts that I do, so this is for you…and for me to see if I really am that vain.

My Self-Conscious Fitness Thoughts

Hey again peeps,

I started off this blog post by saying I’m not a naturally self-conscious person………… What a load of crap. I am. That’s exactly what a self-conscious person would say. I’m self-conscious over the fact that I am self-concious so I cover it up. Sorry.

I thought I’d share with you some of the things (fitness related – otherwise we’d be here all week) that I feel self-concious about. Some of these will be for us girls, seeing as I am one, think it would be worrying if it was relating to any other gender, so bare with me guys. Maybe you have equivalent things you’re dealing with? Let me know in the comments, we’re all friends here.

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!

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!

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…

Beauty Products A Gym Girls Treasures

Hey fellow bloggers,

As a fitness fanatic whose into her makeup, I tend to find myself caught in two worlds. One where you look dolled contoured-up, lashes glued and highlighter on fleek, and the other with little to no makeup on, red-faced and sweating through your top. It can get stressful at times, but we’ve always got these products to hand to help sort out a bad, gym-related situation. If they’re not in your hand already, they’ll be in your bag waiting to be viciously grabbed to quickly fix the mishap.

Let me know if you’re the same and that I’m not alone in this beauty/gym world…
