I lurve shopping :)

It’s been such a good day so far..mostly coz I’ve been off and could have a lie in..This meant I caught up with some TV shows (namely Grey’s Anatomy, Fringe and Bones).

I was going to go swimming today but as I still  have an allergic reaction I didn’t want to irritate my skin with chlorine. Instead I did Jillian Micheals’ No more trouble zones and really enjoyed it and then hit the gym for my normal one hour workout (calories burnt 860 in 1h45 mins not too shabby eh?)

But what made my workout so much better was the fact that these got delivered

Reebok Traintones!!!!! They feel so comfy and are very well cushioned..they also made my workouts harder by making it slightly more difficult to keep my balance. They are £75 at reebok website but as I signed up for their newsletter I got £15 off a purchase over £50 so at £60 they were bargainlicious

Do they not look pretty?

No food pics as I was mostly grazing but I had porridge duh, plenty of fruit, eat natural bar, some Cheerios and I am about to head out for a meal with my friend and I shall be having Steak, jacket potato, grilled tomato and onions, will see about the dessert 😉

Have you bought anything recently that you had been excited about?


It’s no fun being allergic to almost everything

Ok, so I may have exaggerated in my title..I am not allergic to absolutely everything  but every so often a new allergy pops up and makes me miserable.. Today’s winner is lovely face and neck bright red rash compliments of Amber Solaire no streaks bronzer…believe me when I tell you guys at Amber will be getting a very angry email as soon as I’ve got more time.

Other than that though my day has been rather enjoyable..been out of the office for half a day attending meetings and so on

Breakfast once more consisted of lovely porridge with skimmed milk, summer fruit and half a banana

Brought half mixed berry Trek bar that I have seen on various blogs recently, but only had a tiny bit as I found it absolutely revolting..shame but good on the other hand as they are quite price. As it was so blah I had Lemon Special K bites instead.

Thankfully my lunch was very yummy (3x fishfingers, some potato wedges and heaps of green beans)

This was followed by something that I genuinly can not remember and then before gym I inhaled 1 1/2 buttered oats and seeds toast and 150grams of cottage cheese

The workout itself was really good and I burned over 440 calories in 55 minutes. I also gave in and ordered proper DVD sets of both Turbofire and Chalean Extreme, coz frankly I love buying anything fitness related and convinced myself they’d be an investment in myself really 😉

Are there any exercise DVDs that you swear by?
