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.

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…

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…

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…

Exciting Social Media News

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening lovely followers,

Where ever you are in the world on this refreshing Sunday, I have some exciting news. I was initially going to celebrate 250 followers, but I’ve just hit 270 (?!?!). So I’ve decided to celebrate and create new social media accounts for this blog. These accounts include:

Twitter: @lexilife95 (Click for link)

Instagram: @lexilife95 (Click for link)

E-mail: lexilife95@gmail.com

Please feel free to follow and communicate with me on any of these platforms! Any expansion of communication with you lovely lot makes me happy so to do all three (with the same username…woah I know) is awesome.

Also: I NEED PEOPLE TO FOLLOW!
It’s not gonna be that much fun without giving something back to you so let me know your usernames

As I’ve just started up – I don’t look that great. That’s a given I guess, but if some of you want to follow now in prep for some twitter chats and instagram likes – that’s totally cool!

I’ll be sure to leave my links at the bottom of every post from now on.

Leave your usernames for some apps in the comments and I’ll be sure to give you a follow on it, if that’s too much effort (understandable, its a sunday) I’ll simply give you a follow back.

Exciting new chapter, can’t wait to share it with you all and hopefully inspire some of you to join me with it!

Love Life, Lexi!

 

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.
