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.

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.

Full Body Workout with a Melon

The other day Mummy Hem came home from the shops with a melon and it got me thinking, I could use that for my workout and then I don’t have to go to the gym. So I had a think about the different exercises I could do and have put them together for you in 3 videos for you to try at home! The best part? You can eat the melon once you’ve finished the workout 🙂
