Trying to get fit

I've never really been into sports. I went on and off to a gym last year, and since moving this year I've joined a new one and have started going to the classes (a 'core' class nearly killed me!) and have been really enjoying getting fit. I am no where near where I want to be but I'm starting :)
I recently invested in some Nike Roscherun trainers a few weeks ago and I've been really loving them. The top is pure mesh and it feels like I'm wearing nothing, while the sole is really springy! I don't go running in them as I (this will sound bad) don't really like running, but I used them at the gym.. ant they're always there if I change my mind!

I've also recently purchased the Slender Blend from Protein World which I've been using as a kind of meal replacement/ after workout snack. I've been putting it in smoothies and sometimes jsut having it plain with a little milk and water. I really like the vanilla taste. I picket it as it helps with weight loss but also because it had quite good reviews.

And lastly my Davina 2kg weights I bought over a year ago. I go on and off using them, at the moment I'm loving them and doing some of the exercises from my core class at home with them.

Have you tried anything like this lately, any tips or tricks- or recipes? I'm always on the hunt for more!


  1. Aww well done for getting into it, I joined the gym last year but have bearly been recently - it's harder to get back into once you've stopped for a while so keep going!! :)
    Stop by sometime, Sarah x

  3. I really like the colour of your trainers - so vibrant. I don't know why, but I was go for white ones.

  5. Ah thanks, I've been loving them :)

  6. Thanks- me too! I used to have white ones before these, but thought orange might help motivate me to actually go to the gym!

  7. ooh thanks for the recommendation- will take a look :)

  8. Thanks, it is much more difficult than I thought it would be- and yes very hard getting back into it :)

  9. I'm totally with you on the whole running thing but recently my other half has managed to drag me out and go on some leisurely countryside jogs (it's definitely jogging rather than running at the moment)! I feel good for it though and if I continue, I guess I may even be able to treat myself to some gorgeous trainers like yours!!

  10. I still can't bring myself to run! But a countryside jog (especially in the sun) does sound lovely!
