My Fitness Journey | Week 4

I know I’m a bit late with posting this as I normally post my update on a Sunday but I’ve been feeling extremely lazy the last few days. I didn’t get much sleep on Wednesday night and it kinda threw me; I’m still catching up on sleep now!

I haven’t done too badly the last week; admittedly I only exercised once but my eating was not too bad. I attended my first ever body pump class on Tuesday last week and I really enjoyed it. It was pretty hard work. I had to do a routine of shoulder presses, bicep curls, deadlifts, squats and lunges with a weighted bar. We started off with five reps of everything and then increased the number each time, ending with 20 reps of each move. It absolutely killed me and I was still feeling the burn in my thighs three days later.

My Fitness Journey | Week 2

This week has been a bit up and down in terms of sticking to my healthy eating/exercise regime. I started the week out eating really healthily and then as the week went on I did slip a bit. I ended up having a dominos on Wednesday and Nandos for lunch on Friday so it has been a bit of a bad week. I’ll use the fact that it was that time of the month as my excuse for eating badly.

My experience with dating apps


I used to be ashamed to admit that I’ve used dating apps. It seemed that people always  viewed the use of them as the act of someone desperate. Since the uprising of Tinder, it seems to have become the norm and most single people I know have used one app or another at some point. I have been using them for years now; I first met someone off of one when I was still a teenager.
