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…

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…

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…

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!

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…
