Time to get Fit!


Hi everyone! so if you have been reading my previous posts you will be aware that I am struggling with my weight at the moment. I recently joined slimming world and this is my second week and I struggling, I'm an emotional eater and I'm feeling low at the moment so trying to stick to an eating plan seems to be like a huge task right now.

I have decided now is the time to incorporate exercise into my daily routine and I wanted to share with you some of my new products which I'm hoping will help and motivate me on the way.


My new Nikes

Ever since I was a teen I absolutely loved Nike trainers, there so comfy and last a long time. So even though they can be expensive they are completely worth it in my opinion.

The pair I decided to purchase were the Nike Pegasus 30, there bright, colourful and super comfy! I'm in love!



Ok so I have been a member of a gym for a while now, unfortunately I just don't attend! At home I own a treadmill, bike and cross trainer and now I have just purchased a set of USA Pro dumbbells. They range from 0.5kg-2kg. My plan is that since the gym isn't working for me at the moment is to use my dining room as a home gym and incorporate home exercise with outdoor walking (which lulu is very excited about).


Fitbit Flex

A few weeks ago I decided to purchase a Fitbit Flex, for those of you who aren't aware it is a wrist band that tracks your steps, distance, sleep patterns etc. When I am in the mind set of weight loss and exercising I work best seeing my progress and improving my previous stats. I have tested out the sleep function and I was very impressed, it told be how long I was asleep, how many times I was restless and also if I woke up during my sleep. The device itself does not display any information other than progress dots, in order to find out the stats you sync your Fitbt to the Fitbit app which is easy to do but a shame there is no information displayed on the band. If you would like me to do a full review on this please leave me a comment down below.


Ok so lets hope I can get moving more and become more active! Let me know in the comments what motivates you?

  4. All diets/healthy eating plans work if you stick to them its the sticking to them that I cant do lol. Sorry to quote GOK WAN but its all about confidence. If your happy on the inside it shines on the outside (cheesy I know but true). Yes a routine helps. Me too im ment to be going to aquafit tomorrow night. Fingers crossed I make it lol. Thank you for your comment. I REALLY appreciate it.
