hope all is keeping well. just remember to keep smiling and think positive. even in the worst possible moments, positive thinking is always the key :)
happy friday xoxo
My calf muscles, shoulder muscles and sides are so sore from the double training yesterday but I love it!!
Jog this afternoon with the boyfriend before training in the evening.
My boyfriend is gradually getting himself into exercising. Before Christmas there was just no hope for him to exercise. He was never bothered but now, he likes to train and has a little plan for exercising before he starts college in September. He wants to start college with a fresh new start and I will be behind him supporting him :)
All is working out well for us both now :)
and how are all my wonderful followers?
i signed up for 6 marathons, yes you seen it, 6 haha. well i think i did, i never got any confirmations back from 2 places but even if they don’t get back to me, i’ll just sneakly run it haha.
today i ran my first 5km marathon. it was tough seeing as i never ran a marathon before but i gave myself a huge pat on the back. i completed it in 36 minutes which i am delighted about :) hopefully next week, i can try and beat that.
college is going wonderful, training is going wonderful and life is going wonderful.
happy DECEMBER :) :) :)
and i am nervous as hell!
everyone else started last week and due to my trip, i wasn’t able to start at the same time as others. i say by now, they all have their little groups and some have gotten to know a few people so i am worried i will be the “new girl” that no one really wants to get to know. i have never really found it hard to make friends as i talk to anyone but when i met some of the people in my course on induction day, i found it a little difficult. maybe it was just me, i don’t know. but i plan to make this course the start of my career. i want to be able to wake up every morning and look forward to going to college, rather than trying to think of stupid reasons to not go in (i done that for 2 years in my other college) but on a positive note, i am so excited!
i am also excited as tomorrow, i can finally get back into my healthy and exercising routine, due to holiday and other things, i just hadn’t got any time to do anything! NO EXCUSES STARTING TOMORROW!!
i hope everyone is keeping well. new day tomorrow, so forget all those bad habits you had the day before and start afresh :)
keep smiling :) xox
there is a difference between having an eating disorder and promoting eating disorders. those who promote it, should be ashamed. why would anyone wish to be so thin to the point where they are invisable? i think people should be taught the differences between having an eating disorder and being a fucking idiot. i am getting sick of going onto the “exercise” and “workout” tags, only to see post about people wanting to have eating disorders. no. fuck off.
eating disorders are NOT a choice.
i am following so many amazing people that are recovering from eating disorders and i applaud them immensely and i genuinely think they should pat themselves on the back and see how far they have come.
if you are going to promote eating disorders, then get yourself off the internet. please.
and if this post has offended people, then i apologize but i genuinely think that some people need a reality check.
on the treadmill, minding my own business, running like my life depended on it then a bunch of 10-11 year old girls came into the gym and pratically treated it like it was a play ground full of new shit. one girl literally pressed so many buttons on the treadmill that the thing stopped working, another was on the bike and she was so small, her feet would hardly let her touch the peddle and another, well i don’t know what she was doing because from what i seen, she was trying to flirt with this skinny little whippet that was on the treadmill beside me and you know the sick thing was, he was giving her kisses back, he is like a year younger than me. oh it was awful. the 20 minutes on the treadmill could not of came quick enough. i don’t think i have ever left the gym to go to class so quick in my life! but overall bootcamp was brilliant, as always :)
i applied for a couple of jobs today and shockingly one of my application form actually got emailed to the shop this time. i tried about 4 times before and it wouldn’t send and when it did today, i got fucking excited! i was like “THIS IS MY CHANCE TO SHINEEEEE” and since i was in the house on my own, there was no one there to be happy with me, so that was depressing. i am doing the same tomorrow then workout. for the next 2 weeks, looking for a job has to be on the top of the list then workout because I NEED MONIES!!!
i hope all had a lovely day today :) xox
yesterday we decided to go on a walk/jog which ended up being for 2 hours and we also went to the park and done some planks, suicides and laps. we met up with another friends of ours who also joined us in the park. the parks has loads of hills so it made it even more fun and more testing trying to do laps. it was such a great time. my friend that i met up with first, ended up staying in mine and we were up half the night chatting about life. it was lovely.
today we went to see TED, and if you haven’t seen it, you need to! it’s hilarious you guys. you will not be disappointed whatsoever. to avoid eating loads of sweets in the cinema, we went to Tesco and got fruits and water, i got a small wrap and my friend got a pasta and between us we shared 70% dark chocolate. i also tried pomogrante for the first time and loved it, i ate a whole snack box to myself and i was delighted it was only 40 calories. it has been the most healthiest snack i have ever eaten in the cinema, i was so proud of myself! and to be honest, i will happily do it again. all this bullcrap about having to eat popcorn and sweets in the cinema is rubbish. you can still watch a film and enjoy it while eating a wrap and fruits just as much as the next person sitting beside you munching on popcorn and chocolate.
there is an Eddie Rockets (50’s style food joint) right beside the cinema and we went in for our dinner. i was going to get the salad but the salad does be drenched with salad dressing and last time my mam asked for it without the dressing, they basically handed her a plate of lettuce and frankly, i am not a rabbit. i was feeling a bit peckish so i ordered the children’s mini burger meal which is tiny. two tiny mini burgers and a handful of chips and i was delighted with life. my friend got the salad. we had a sneak peak at the desert menu and as soon as we seen the chocolate brownie with ice cream, we were like kids! we got one and ate it between us. it was hot and yummy! it’ now been 2 hours since i have had the brownie and my stomach is in a jocker. oooopps!
hope everyone had a nice day/night :) xox
my man is on his way so we can have a jog, i am sitting on tumblr eating oatmeal with greek yoghurt and fruits and i am feeling so fresh and awake.
life could not get any better :)
hello to my new followers :)
in bootcamp yesterday, we worked on our abs for the whole hour. my trainer threw in a few suicides but he made us focus on our abs. for the first 5 minutes of class, i was able to pull from my abs and i felt so proud, i felt proud that i could do it for the first time without straining my neck then i go and jinx myself and for the rest of the class i was focusing from pulling from my abs but my neck kept hurting but today my abs are so sore and when i sneezed today, cried, like a baby! WORTH IT!
i have now completed and edited a “before” picture all because she showed me an amazing photo editor. it has me so inspired that i am determined to be fit, healthy and happy. i am due to go away in september and i hope a week before i go away there will be some changes so i can take a “during” photo. neither will not be uploaded until i have seen loads of changes but like i said, these photo’s will keep me inspired. i regret not doing a photo in january but luckily (in some ways) my body hasn’t changed that much so taking a picture now will make no difference, they will be a constant reminder of how shit i used to feel and how happy i will feel when i reach my target, healthy weight and how happy i will feel within myself.
i think people should take pictures of their progress. it really is helpful. after i asked my mum to take a picture of my back, i was dreading seeing the photo, to the point where i nearly cried but do you know what, i picked myself up and told myself that this journey is going to be the next chapter in my life. i have had a few ups and downs with my weight and never bothered to do anything about it and the fact that i took the picture (well my mum did haha) made me more proud of myself, it made me proud of my achievements and it has shown what i am capable of.
