(This T-Shirt will make you look like the ultimate reluctant gym-goer, but I love it and it's true- P.S it's Urban Outfitters, Wildfox)

Remember that scene in Grease, where Danny Zuko goes up to the playing field 'rockin' and rollin' (being a cocky mister), trying to be a jock, attempting sports- and fails, miserably. I guess you could say that's how I spent my first ever gym session yesterday morning, attempting a 'Body Pump' class- and being that person who lies on the bench in an over sized t shirt, trying to look like they know what they're doing, and accidentally looking like something from a weight loss show. Sweating, of course.

Glamorous right?

2 Anyway- for a long time I've been trying to 'get fit'. I've tried the 30 Day Shred (trust me I have), but after 5 days and an inconsistent schedule I sadly had to leave Gillian, I've tried the whole 'walking/running around the park' thing and even so far as sit ups on my bedroom floor- but the time has come. The gym was my next option.
1 Alongside the launch of a new secret (and improved) recipe, Special K have sponsored me to pledge to do something to improve myself as part of their 'Make A Change' campaign. Having dropped (literally) the 'Drop A Dress Size' campaign and taken to celebrating us ladies for who we actually are (think improving ourselves via confidence and the inside)- they've launched this new campaign in order to help us make more positive changes, and set new goals.
3 Over the next three months I'll be posting once a month with a little 'fitness' update, whether it be a playlist to get you motivated, a sneak peek into my gym bag- or just a general catch up; please keep with me through my mini journey and as my lovely pal Kristabel would say; 'witness the fitness'!

P.S This project and this post has been bought to you in collaboration with Special K, and Kellogg have sponsored me in achieving my goal- however I am not a spokesperson for the brand. If you fancy making a change yourself, always seek help from professionals before getting started- no hurts here please! As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own- and am honest as ever!

  3. I love the t-shirt!

    For exercise, try looking at the YouTube channel Blogilates, literally 100s of really fun pilates videos, and the woman who does it also posts free workout timetables on her website. I've tried so many different exercise regimes and so far hers is one I'm sticking with and actually enjoying. :O

  5. Well done - I like the thought that other people there were probably wondering just how rare this was for you that you were taking pictures! Did it take some explaining? I love the t-shirt and pleased to see a positive healthy image. :) Being the least 'fitness' type I stick to regular walking through local fields. I salute you!

  7. You iz well fit! Maybe we can attempt running together? I definitely need to get back to my Zumba and circuits classes, am woefully out of practice. Might steal the blogilates idea that one of your commenter's suggested, need to keep mixing it up!

  8. I have a bad back at the moment and I'm waiting for physio to start - I cut down on food to make up for lack of energy being exerted (not in an unhealthy way, mind you,) - but I seriously cannot wait until my backs better - I think I'll be going down the cycling route (less pressure on back and knees, etc.)

    Love that t-shirt, need it in my life!

  35. If I had sweet trainers like that, I might be more inclined to do some exercise occasionally! Mine are four years old and falling apart...might invest in some new ones for motivation :)

    I look forward to watching your fitness journey!

  37. This is actually perfect for me as it will help to keep me motivated too! I also tried the 30 Day Shred and saw amazing results after 15 days and then, for some reason, just gave up! Useless, I know! Good luck, anyway!!
