I don’t often post about being healthy and keeping fit etc as I’ve never been a ‘slim’ girl and that’s mainly (completely) due to me having a sweet tooth and generally being lazy. If there’s cake going around the office, I’ll eat it, and if there’s an option to take transport instead of walking, I’ll take it. Saying that, I’ve never been too unhappy with my body, but although I don’t think I’m ‘fat’ (whatever that is classed as), I know…

I’m hardly one to talk about health and fitness, but I did rejoin the gym in January and have been going fairly consistently, usually twice a week. To help me be a bit more motivated, I found that a new gym kit has given me that little extra boost.  I only bought my first ever pair of proper trainers last year (in PE I wore either plimsolls or bulky Lonsdale things!) and I recently thought I could do with an upgrade.…

As part of my new years fitness kick, I’ve been attempting to try new ways to get active. I’ve had success with my treadmill so far, and I’ve also tried an ab toning belt. The last couple of weeks I’ve tried something I’ve heard so many good things about, and is a more fun alternative to normal exercise.. Zumba! Zumba combines Latin and International music with a fun and effective workout system through dance and aerobics. One of the main things…

I mentioned at the beginning of the month that I was going to try my best to lose weight and get fit. And I’m very lucky to now have this amazing piece of fitness equipment, the Roger Black Silver Treadmill. I received this at the beginning of January and I was eager to get it set up as quickly as possible so I could get on with my weight loss mission! I was a little bit worried about putting it all…
