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.

Excuses We’ve All Made to Avoid Working Out

Hello you lovely lot,

I’m currently on a 2/3 week break away from my university studies. I don’t know why it’s called a ‘break‘ because I’m still swamped under my dissertation. But instead…here I am…blogging. Moving on…

Being at home has made me realise just how many excuses me and my brain like to make up. It’s impressive. So I thought I’d share to see if I have any competition in successfully avoiding workouts…

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!

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.

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…

My Secrets to Dieting

Hey peeps,

Just want to say thanks for all the great feedback I’ve had – it’s so lovely to know people are supporting you out there and/or like what kinda stuff you’re writing for them.

Now for me, I don’t really tend to look at a ‘diet‘ the same way everyone else probably does – and that may be one of the reasons why it works so well…guess this starts me off for number 1!Read More »
