Behind The Blog: Things You Didn’t Know About Me

Hello lovelies,

As I posted on Twitter earlier this morning, I was feeling up close and personal with my blog and decided to break the mould a little in terms of my blogging style. I hope that’s ok with some of you – I understand it’s not what you expected from me today, let me know if you enjoyed it or not and it will give me an indicator as to what to post next!

My youtube channel is all set up and ready, I’ve got my vlogging camera and am waiting on a memory card. Instead of making the big jump straight from blog to youtube, I thought this would break everyone in a little easier if you’re going to have a snoop at my vlogs! Feel free to subscribe so you’re all set up.

So here are 21 random facts about me that you may not know otherwise…

The Signs Of Having Your Sh*t Together

Hey Peeps,

Before I get this blog post started, I just wanna say I’ve added another social media platform – Youtube!… After getting amazing feedback from some of my closer followers on twitter, I have plucked up the confidence to vlog my summer! If you think you’d watch me or give it a go, feel free to vote in my poll in my sidebar (mobile version is at the end of the comments section). I’ve got my channel all set up so don’t be afraid to head on over and subscribe so you’re ready to go!

On with the post. After the past few weeks of my finals, one could say I’ve been pretty friggin stressed. So stressed, it’s made me realise that I really DONT have my shit together. I’m 21 and still floating about life banging into things. So I’ve put together a list of random pointers that screams I have my life in order, and I’m winning at it

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…

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!

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!

Thoughts of a Carboholic On A Fitness Journey

Hello fellow bloggers,

I like to think of myself as a fitness obsessed gym bunny who tries her best to stay healthy. But, I’ll be honest, I am a total sucker for carbs through and through. They get me every time!

So I thought I’d share my constant thoughts when face to face with a carb whilst on a fitness journey…surely I can’t be alone on some of these right? If so, that’s embarrassing.

*WARNING* Maybe you shouldn’t read this post as motivation…and instead read it as some entertainment. I was hungry by the end of it. Sorry. You may be craving carbs.
