Dear Diary || April ’17

Hello everyone! I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and written a blog post just because I’ve wanted to; obviously I’ve been working in my blog series with Jodie (you can read more here) but I haven’t really just sat and written about me, for me. So I decided to do a ‘Dear Diary’ type of post, which I hope I continue monthly as a sort of catch up with you. This will allow me to be completely honest and raw with you, letting you all know what’s been going on during the previous month, what I hope to achieve in the following month, what my goals and plans are, what I’m struggling with, and mostly, just how I’m doing in general.

Blogging with a Chronic Illness

Hey everyone! Today’s post is going to be about, as the title suggests, blogging with a chronic illness. And let me tell you, it is difficult.

But when I do, I am constantly reminded of how great it is, and how much I enjoying writing. Continue reading “Blogging with a Chronic Illness”

Gym vs Group Classes

Hello everyone! In today’s post I’m going to be going over the positives and negatives with going to the gym versus going to a group class! And to conclude, I will say which I prefer!

People use both methods of exercise and use a combination of both, and some only use one or the other. I am of the latter group. I enjoy one of these SO MUCH MORE than the other, and really I wouldn’t be found doing one of these!

Can you guess which one I love yet?

So here it goes, going to the GYM vs going to a GROUP CLASS. Continue reading “Gym vs Group Classes”

Weight Loss Struggles

It’s time to be honest…

Trying to stay positive all the time is really hard.

And I’m a positive person. But recently, I just feel completely and utterly exhausted, both physically and mentally.

I keep telling myself that it’s because I’ve just started this new job working in a café, while still trying to keep up with my exercise and other things, but I actually think this exhaustion goes a little bit deeper than this. Continue reading “Weight Loss Struggles”

20 Songs which will Guarantee a Good Workout!

As I’m sure everyone will agree, you can’t have a great workout without a great playlist to go with it. I have always loved music, and that doesn’t change when I’m working out. I love to have tunes blaring at me while I’m exercising as I find it gets me in the mood and it motivates me so much more! Any exercise classes you go to will always have a great playlist to go along with the exercise and any time you go into a gym, there will always be music on in the background!
