So why do I post pictures of my cellulite, bloated stomach and fat for the whole world to see?

Setting Goals for 2016

Fierce is the new fit!:

Happy New Year lovely readers!

Welcome to 2016!

I have a great feeling about 2016 and know it’s going to be a good one. I have lots of goals and things I know I’m going to achieve, but not without a solid plan.

I’m going to be having a look back at one of my goals from last year and talking you through how to make this year, your best yet!

The start of a new year is a great opportunity to consider what you want to achieve that year and how you’re going to do it.

Last year I decided I wanted to cut back on my intake of meat and dairy and wouldn’t you know it…6 months into 2015 and I went vegan (and haven’t looked back since). I never imagined I’d go completely vegan and at the start of 2015 would have laughed if you’d told me I’d be vegan in a year.

I also intended on spending more time practicing yoga but unfortunately that one got put on the back burner (I currently have the back pain to remind my why I shouldn’t have let that happen!).

Anyway it’s easy to say we are going to do something but, as we all know, most people’s NY’s resolutions don’t last more than a couple of days! Make this year, your year and stick to your goals by following my top tips:

Boxing Day Cardio & Core Blast Workout



Morning lovelies! So sorry I’ve been a little absent on here recently (if you follow me on snapchat and Insta you’ll know I’ve been super busy starting my personal training business so haven’t had a lot of time for my blog) but that’s all changing in 2016! So get ready for more YouTube vids and articles on here!

So- I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day- I enjoyed my first vegan Christmas and, despite forgetting to defrost my nut roast and only realising AFTER all the other food was ready to eat (thus resulting in no nut roast for me) I still had a delish, lovely day and didn’t miss meat at all!

I got up early today and just needed to sweat it all out so here’s a great little post Christmas Day workout for you to try:

Battle Ropes Partner Workout

Working out with a friend is so much more fun than working out alone!

Having an exercise partner holds you accountable and ensures you still get that workout in even when you don’t really fancy it because you don’t want to let them down.

Working Out with Kayla Itsines #sweatwithkayla


Kayla looking amazing (her body looks even better IRL, and a sweaty Sam and me after the workout).

It’s not every day I get to meet one of my idols but on Sunday I was lucky enough to meet the incredible Kayla Itsines.

She is such a great role model and the person who had a big impact on me losing over a stone and a half of weight.

Kayla inspires over 3 million girls every day with her awesome lean, mean body and motivation attitude.
So when I heard she was putting on a bootcamp in London I absolutely HAD to be there.

Pre-Holiday Diet and Exercise Routine

  
‘No carbs before Marbs’ or rather ‘No carbs before Barbs’ as that’s where I’m off to (Barbados).

I’m a very goal orientated and motivated person and prefer to work under pressure. If I gave myself a goal that was in 6 months time I might not work as hard during the first few months because 6 months is just too far away for me.

I also like to push myself and, whilst I strive to have a healthy bod all year round I don’t think there’s anything wrong with becoming a little stricter and working harder for a special event or holiday- I want to look my best.

So with just under 4 weeks before my holiday (25 days- not that I’m counting or anything) I thought I’d up the exercise and cut the crap in my diet to really see what my body is capable of.

10 Tips To Surviving a ‘Fat Day’

If you read my last post you’ll know that a couple of days ago I went shopping for a pair of high waisted denim hot pants and ended up having a bit of a meltdown- long story short, the lighting in the Topshop changing room was so unflattering and the shorts made me look gross- as a result I had a ‘ugh I hate my body’ day.

The Honest Truth About Weightloss

  
Warning- blog contains bad language and serious grumpiness.

This is probably the most honest post I’ll ever write- apologies for grammatical errors but rants don’t require proper punctuation and spelling okay?!

Most people would say I have an alright body- even I admit it occasionally. I also post pictures on Instagram of me in a crop top, stomach out (providing the lighting’s good and i’ve yet to eat breakfast, you might even see a hint of abdominal definiton) flexing as hard as I can.

However, I have days where i literally feel shit about my looks and although this post is mainly about fat and weight- these personally body hatred days often coincide with “why does my hair look like shit/i wish i wasn’t so pale and pasty/my nose is like a bloody witch’s (no offence to any witches reading this), i look tired, my skin’s dry etc. etc. etc. seriously i could go on forever.

Today happened to be one of those days where I literally want to curl up in a ball, spoon nutella straight from the jar into my mouth and binge watch netflix because everything is just shit.
