Getting started with weight training

Whenever people start to incorporate exercise into our routines, most of us will usually turn to cardio to help us get started. Hell, that’s exactly what I did. Running is free and you can go at your own pace – what’s not to love? But what if you’re looking for a little more variety in […]

Entering my first race

On my blog, I recently discussed how I’ve had a change in my running mindset which has encouraged me to run further and for longer during the last few months and for healthier reasons than the one that originally drove me. This positive step resulted in my entering of the Cardiff 10K on September 3, […]

My life with sport

I was recently approached by Sport Wales as they were looking for bloggers to contribute to their women and girls in sport campaign, Our Squad Cymru, to speak out about the importance of having women involved in sport. They explained that participation for women still continues to lack behind the statistics we see from our […]

A change in my running mindset

I have been falling in and out of love of my running habit this year like an absolute yo-yo. And for some time, I honestly could not figure out why. I tried downloading new apps, running in new locations and even starting more motivating running playlists. For a time, this helped drive my motivation but […]

Keeping up my fitness motivation

In January, I wrote about ‘the harsh realities of getting fit again’ when I first introduced exercise back into my daily routine. Since then, I’ve been working really hard to make sure that every week I’m either running, doing HIIT or going for a walk. But after a few month of exercise, it’s safe to […]

The harsh reality of getting fit again

At the start of the New Year in 2016, we all said that this would be the year that we would get into shape and finally get back to the body that we actually wanted. I didn’t reach this point until February when I saw a picture of me that completely horrified me and had […]

Walking in Wales

Going for a walk is literally one of my favourite things to do in the world. And it’s often overlooked as a way to get some exercise in or in an attempt to get fit. But actually, walking is really good for your body and is pretty good for your mental health too. Regular walks […]

How many miles should I be running to lose fat?

I’m a big fan of running and it’s usually my go to exercise. This isn’t because I’m good at it, I’m not particularly. It’s just because I find it to be a great way to relax, unwind and it does help me to keep my weight under control. But I’ve read so many articles that […]

Starting The Squat Challenge 

So guys, I’ve now finished university and have decided that I want to take the summer to get in shape. For those of you who’ve read my blog before, you’ll know I’m a big fan of running. But although this burns calories and is good cardio, I wanted to shape my legs a little better […]

My Morning Run

I’ve been really excited about fitness since I’ve decided to get fit again. I’ll hold my hands up and admit I’m not a crazed fitness fanatic. I just like exercising as a hobby and because I want to keep slim and in shape. But since it’s January and it’s been a while since I’ve been […]
