I'm not going to lie, I do not have an exercise routine, since starting uni and after quitting dancing I will admit I do not do anything to improve my health. After feeling guilty and searching fitspo accounts on Instagram I decided it was time to make a change... I joined the gym.
Anybody who knows me knows I am not a gym person but since a few of my family members have joined and we can all go together I have signed up. I am going to aim to go at least 3 times a week to ensure i'm getting my moneys worth and that I will actually see myself getting fitter and stronger. So that's it, the new me (kinda).
I must stress my aim is not to loose weight but to tone up and get fit. Although I am already naturally a size 6 I am far from healthy and fit (just watch me run up some stairs, it's laughable).
With my new gym membership in mind I headed off to get some work out wear and I must say I am loving it. I heard Primark had a good range in at the moment and it didn't disappoint. I bought all of my fitness clothing from there and it all totalled to £21! I had purchased 2 crop tops, a sports bra, gym pants and a tank top for just over £20.
It may sound vain but I did want to look (reasonably) good whilst working out so what better way to inject some colour into what you wear?
After my successful trip to Primark I headed to Sports Direct and picked myself up some lovely Nike trainers which coincidently complimented my newly bought clothes. I tried them all on when I got home and I felt that motivated I did a 30 minute work out (changed woman I tell you) and then went on to make myself and Kyle a healthy tea of brown rice, chicken, fried egg and veg.
It's only day one but I feel determined. Now I have actually joined the gym, bought the clothes and have other people to motivate me I feel like I will look like a Victoria's secret model by summer....slightly high expectations but I will be healthier!
I would love to know anyones work out routines or healthy recipes! Let me know in the comments.
