My Fitness Journey

How I got into Fitness

My eldest sister first inspired me to start working out.  She ran for the county and I was so jealous of her perfect little bubble butt, as she walked through my bedroom in her knickers to the airing cupboard…I was about 14 at the time, and so my fitness journey began.

I’m now 42 years old and I’ve exercised regularly since about age 16.  Over all of those years I have exercised anywhere between 3-6 times per week.  For most of those years I think I over trained.  I worked out for far too long and didn’t allow for rest days.  It’s only in the past 4-5 years that my routine has changed…and I’ve experienced the most dramatic changes in my shape.  Before I would do hours of cardio, aiming for 5-6 days per week.  Now I do short interval workouts using Body Weight, an Ugi ball, Rubber Bands, Medicine Balls, Dumbbells and a Skipping Rope…though not normally all at the same time!  I also include Yoga based stretches.

You can see the Results in my HIIT (High Intensity interval Training) Gallery. I am by no means a saint when it comes to diet, I try to eat the right kind of foods most of the time.  Fortunately I don’t really like junk food and I never drink fizzy drinks.  My weaknesses are Dark Chocolate, Crisps and Wine!
