GET FIT… AND STAY AT HOME!!!!

Although getting fit isn’t on my BucketList it’s still something I want to blog about as fitness for me is just one of the several key ways for happiness and health. I absolutely love keeping fit and eating right. Yes I still love my Chocolate!! But I do also love a good work out.

This past year I’ve struggled to find time to go to the gym (not an excuse I promise!), Okay, maybe a little excuse… I just didn’t want to leave the house in the morning! But I also didn’t want to give up getting fit either so I searched high and low for a fitness regime that would work around me and low and behold I found Fitness Blender. I swear by these guys! They are amazing. Alongside my Vegan protien shake I work out with these guys on Youtube atleast 4 times a week and I can see the difference already.

I do sometimes run in addition to this, however if I’m not up to running one day I can lie in guilt free knowing that I can just work out with these guys…

Below are my top 3 favourite videos from Fitness Blender.

I. Fitness Blender –  Butt & Abs Tabata Workout – Fat Blasting Cardio Interval Workout

This Video is my most frequently used video. I Love this one. It’s not to long and it’s not to short. I can fit it in perfectly with the day ahead, whether that be in the morning before work or after I return home from work!

II. Lower Body Tabata Workout – HIIT Workout to Burn Belly Fat & Tone Glutes & Thighs

Good Abs & Good Backside… enough said. However do remember guys, about 80% of your abs are made in the kitchen. An Abs workout does not cancel out the large fries you’ve been eating every night!! It’s both a combination of good, clean food and a good workout.

III. Express Calorie Blaster – Toning & Cardio

This baby I discovered the other day. I really wanted to work out but I didn’t have enough time in between work and meeting up with a few friends to do a full routine. So I looked for a high intensity 10 minute workout… and tadaa! I love it! It did leave me wanting more as it was only a quick 10 min session, but for a quick Workout it definitely did it’s job well!

I would advice that before any work out, if you have any health concerns or injuries consult with your doctor first!!

Let me know how it goes!!

Love ya,

Leah.

Wake Up O’ You Sleepers!!

The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up. – Paul Valery

 

wake up

LOVE this quote. At first I was quick to just skim over what I was reading. But when I went back to the quote, stopped and thought about what was said I was just struck with a sense of urgency.

Not a panic typed urgency but a realisation that this is life. This is my life. I only have one shot at it.

We can spend all day, daydreaming and then all night dreaming again. But the only way to make our dreams a reality is to just wake up. So many of us dream big and wonderful dreams, but that’s all we do. There will come a point in life when we need to wake up and start putting things into practice. Maybe it’s picking up that instrument once again and giving it another go? Maybe it’s applying again for that job you once got rejected from or maybe it’s practising the skill you had once been so passionate about. It could be anything. What is it that you need to do to get back on that horse? Don’t be scared of failure. Failing isn’t always a step back, it’s just an opportunity to try something again. To work harder and use another strategy. Failure is an opportunity to grow, learn and be strengthened. 

The decision that you make today, no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time, will grow into something much greater. No matter the size of the seed that is sewed, it is still vital to the growth of the harvest. 

I really want to encourage you guys to dream again. And not just dream. Practically make the choice to do whatever it is you need to do TODAY. Google something. Ring someone. Text someone. I don’t know… POST IT ON FACEBOOK… DO SOMETHING. Dreams need to be worked for and you’ve got way to much potential for it to just sit there!

I really want to share a song with you that I absolutely love. It encourages, motivates and moves me everytime I listen to it. I’m left thinking ‘Wow, there is so much more!’  I have an amazing friend who runs an Online magazine called LIOL. ( You should totally check her out) and not long ago a couple of our friends got together and used the amazing skill they have, to sing a cover to a song by ‘ALL The Sons & Daughters’, and of course, yes. It is about dreaming! I know you’ll love it too…

Love ya,
