If there is one thing that I believe in, fitness should be fun. So when myself and a few of the girls from my fitness classes got the chance to race in the Sea Bangor Cup rowing race, we jumped at the chance to show everyone what we are made of.
I’m one of those people who seem to get into trouble without trying. This tends to happen because I don’t think things through. Sometimes it can get me into a spot of mischief and looking like a complete idiot. Other times it makes me looking like a complete badass and living legend. After running 10k the other day, I’m not sure what my current status is.
When it comes to weight loss or anything like that, it can be confusing. I’m no expert on the subject but I can spot a load of rubbish from a mile off. I have no time for fad diets or the latest craze. So when I got asked to review “The Secret of Weight”, I was a little skeptical.
There is nothing like a sport event to bring people together and cheer for their favourite athlete. But the ladies often get overlooked when it comes to sporting ability. Just read some of the headlines that appeared since Rio 2016 Olympics started. But I’m not one to dwell on what those idiots who work in print think. We, the generation of the internet, milky sweet lattes, and adult colouring books; we know better. And we know that the ladies who are competing in Rio are kicking ass. Here are my top 10 inspiring women Olympians of all time who deserve gold for winning at life.
Finding a top workout is one of those things that everyone wants. And seeing as summer is upon us which can mean only one thing, it’s bikini time ladies! If you are anything like me then there is a good chance you aren’t a fan of the gym. It’s boring, expensive, and you can never be too sure if the sweaty person who used the machine before wiped it down properly. And don’t even get me started on yoga mats at the gym that are there in case you forget to bring yours! There are the tales of a thousand sweaty feet hidden in the foam of those mats. In fact, I here are my thoughts on yoga. But what can we do? Is there a way that we can get fit in the comfort of our home? Of course there is, welcome to the internet! A place where anything is possible!
Health and fitness has been on everyone’s lips for the last few years. Everyone wants to know what is going to be good for them. But is “healthy” these days? And how can we be sure that we aren’t doing damage to our bodies?
Summer is just around the corner and most people will be looking for ways to look their best for bikini season. But how far would you go? And what dangers would you risk for a killer beach body? There is a growing trend with young women and men who are reaching for diet and slimming aids to help melt away the pounds. But does anyone really know what they are taking? Recently it has come to my attention that the number of people taking slimming aids is on the increase and many have died in the process.
We have all been there at some point and it can come in many forms. And it isn’t pleasant in the slightest. But that doesn’t mean that you should suffer with the feeling nausea. So whether you feel sick because of a tummy bug, food poisoning, pregnancy, or even a bad-ass hangover, here is the cure to help you ride it out. This anti-sickness smoothie has been tried and tested by myself for some of the worst hangovers you have ever seen, and if it can get me through a whiskey hangover, then it should help you out in any other way.
There is no point in exercising or trying to get fit if your diet doesn’t reflect what you are doing. For most people at this time of the year, they will be regretting those drunken announcements that they are quitting smoking, running 5k a day, or simply eating healthy. I feel your pain. But while some people are starting to slip back into old habits already, I tried to kick it up a bit with some cooking to go with my running everyday.
Sometimes we make some stupid excuses for not working out. I’m tired. I don’t have time. What good would it do me really? One one hand, I can see a valid point in all of these reasons. Or excuses, depending on your point of view.
