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.
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.
I kinda wish I thought of this blog post a little earlier seeing as it’s a couple days after the Easter holiday weekend, but by reading a lot of you easter related fitness posts it’s inspired me and helped me create this. Hope you enjoy and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
I’m just gonna dive right into it – just like all my eggs this weekend…
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!
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!
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.
Happy Sunday & Mothers Day! I hope you’ve all spent it just how you’ve wanted to. It is a Sunday after all. I’ve spent mine working out, studying and blogging. Literally my life at the moment. I’ve been reading all of your lovely comments and cannot thank you enough! You keep me going.
To keep things on the positive side, I thought I’d try and collect all the best feelings that a gym fanatic will feel. If there’s any I’ve missed, put it in the comments box!! Here goes…try not to get too excited now…Read More »
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…
