You've probably assumed from the title, that this post is going to be somewhat different to the usual mumble jumble & pretty pictures you see on this little space on the internet. And yes, you assumed right.
Let me start by asking, 'Is anyone else panicking about the little pouch of cake they still have on their stomach, despite summer being just around the corner?' Well, I certainly am. Now, don't get me wrong here and think I'm of those people that obsesses about being 'skinny' (I refuse to use that word again). Because honestly, I really do love cake. And biscuits. And sweets. And... you get the point. However, I will admit that I like to be as healthy as possible (nothing wrong with that, right?) and rather love the gym. Unfortunately I'm not blessed with the ability to go on the 'see food, and eat it diet' and still have an amazing bod, but I am certainly in the process of persevering with my 'fitness' in the hope of feeling confident in shorts this summer.
I'm not going to give you any
crap rubbish here about diets or losing weight fast, because lets be honest, all you need to do is eat healthily, to be healthy. Besides, the cabbage diet sounds far too cake-less for me anyway. Oh, and I do treat myself, often. Far too often. But shh! ;)
Anyhow, seeing as this is a fashion blog, I suppose I should talk to you a little about clothes? Now, we all know that if we have an amazing outfit planned for the next day, there's a 99% chance we're a little more excited about getting out of bed in the morning. After noticing this, I tried to encourage it into my 'fitness wardrobe', or whatever you would like to call it. I bought some funky (but supportive) new trainers, comfortable sports bras, and found the prettiest vest tops & leggings that was humanely possible. None of us look our best at the gym. Sweat, no make up & tied up hair have unfortunately never been the most attractive combination. Considering that fact, we may as well make the most of what we wear. So girlies, in the hope of inspiring you to get your little booties to the gym (unless you already look like Beyonce) I've made a pretty little collage of all the pretty little things that could potentially make you look 'pretty' at the gym! HOORAH. xxx
