Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share with you my favourite things from the first month of 2017. January is definitely a time for a new start, and the motivation for getting active is definitely at a high, so there is a few things in my favourites this month that are fitness related!
January started with the Bikini Body Guide 12 Week Challenge, which I am loving! It’s really getting me into a routine with fitness and making exercise a daily thing which I actually look forward to. I had the pleasure of meeting Kayla Itsines, the creator of the Bikini Body Guide, at the start of January in Glasgow at her meet and greet for her new book, the 28 Day Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Guide, she is even more gorgeous in real life (definite goals!!). I’ve been using her Sweat with Kayla App on my iPone which helps even more in following the programme. For the resistance workouts it gives you a video guide on how to perform the exercise, so you can get the correct form.
I’ve been tracking my fitness journey on a separate Instagram account .
With getting more active I have come to discover muscles that I swear I never had before, and this also comes with aches and pains… To help combat this and ease achy muscles I invested in a foam roller. This has definitely changed my life! No joke! I usually do exercises with it on rest days, or just after a work out to help ease the pain the next day. I would definitely recommend looking into getting one of these. I got mine from Amazon for only £9.99.
I got my next favourite for Christmas from my Mum & Dad. I was really getting fed up of tangled up earphones in the gym that got in the way, so I was over the moon when I got wireless bluetooth headphones.
Next up is another Christmas gift, I got this gorgeous mermaid Starbucks travel cup from my Sister. I’ve loving it in the mornings for taking a cup of hot peppermint tea into work. Definitely helps with the dark mornings!
My last favourite has featured in my blog before, the Pixi Glow Tonic. I’ve been using this once a day to help renew my dull Winter skin. It’s snuck it’s way into my daily skin care routine and I don’t think it will be leaving any time soon!
