After a couple weeks of slacking, I’m finally ready to start my fitness routine again.
I’ve always been into looking after my body and exercise but I find it hard to stay motivated all the time, I’m only human. I work in McDonald’s and it’s tough to say no.
Most of 2016 so far, I’ve focused on strength training and completed half of Kayla Itsine’s Bikini Body Guide. I would recommend this to anyone. From just three thirty minute workouts a week I saw huge changes in my figure and strength. If you are looking for a programme that you want to do at home, it’s definitely worth it. Take a look at My Fitness Instagram to see my results.
I’m joining a gym tomorrow and am hoping to incorporate both the Kayla BBG guides and weight training into my routine.
So yes, today I am starting fresh with a nice run along the beach, which is going to be hard as I haven’t focused on cardio since last year so wish me luck!
But here is a quick look at today’s workout gear.
As you can maybe tell, I like the colour blue.
Most of this outfit is Nike:
Trainers – Nike iD personalised Free Run 3.0. I can’t praise enough how much I love these. They are so light and move with your feet which makes it feel like the shoe is part of you. I personalised my own pair and I knew what I wanted in a trainer but couldn’t find it anywhere. You can personalise all the colours, from the sole to laces. Also, you can choose to have your name printed on the tongue of the trainers which is a nice touch. You can’t customise this specific design anymore but there are similar designs on Nike. Mine were roughly £100.
Sports bra – I have a few of these in different colours and they are my favourite. They are quite thick material so they hold you in and make you feel very secure when working out. These bras have dri-fit technology which means you can stay comfortable even when working at your maximum capacity. Right now you can get this for £20.
Tank Top – The colour of this top is what drew me to it. Isn’t it gorgeous? These racerbacks are made from a light, floaty fabric which I much prefer when working out as I find that when I wear a skin tight top it constantly rides up and you find yourself sorting it more than actually working out. Again, this has dri-fit technology.
Finally, my leggings. These were actually from Tesco. If you haven’t already, I’d recommend trying out some of the workout gear Tesco sell. A lot of my collection is from here and I must say they are some of my favourites and much cheaper than your branded products. They wash up well and hold their shape. If you’re small like me, they will be rather long on you but that doesn’t bother me too much. I think my leggings and most of the others that I own were £12.
From now on, I’m going to aim to post regularly about how I am getting on with my regime.
