So.. onto this week's post. This week I've finally decided to put pen to paper (or rather fingers to keyboard..haha) and tell you about my fitness journey.
t's the time of year where we're being bombarded with adverts to buy the latest slimming supplement, drink, diet and workout plan; and it sucks. For those of us learning to love our bodies for what they are (beautiful, in case you're not sure), being constantly told that we need to lose weight now that Christmas is over is just horrible. So for the past week and a bit I've been putting together a list of body positive and self-care Instagram's that you need to be following!
Which brings me to this post. For as long as I can remember, I have made New Years resolutions each year; and EVERY SINGLE ONE has been about how my body looks and my weight. It's always along the lines of: I will lose weight, I will drop a dress size, I will change my body, I will go to the gym 6 times a week, I will stop eating certain foods etc. etc. etc. And this year I REFUSE to make a resolution about my body.
It's #SelfcareWeek ! And it's got me thinking, what do we actually think classes as selfcare? For me, I typically start thinking about face masks and bubble baths. And well yes that can be classed as selfcare; but as amazing as those things are, there are hundreds of other things you can do. And over the last few days, I've been doing a few of these myself.
This is a post I've been meaning to write for quite some time. And what better time than than a few weeks before 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month' begins. Just warning you now, this might be a bit of a long one, but I think talking about these things more does a lot of good, and if this helps anyone out there then I'll be happy.
Only a small number of people know this about me, but about 1 1/2 years ago I was doing a quick breast check, and I found a lump.
This week I gave the 'infamous' BoomBod a go. BoomBod is an anti-bloating and weight loss sachet supplement that's been written about in the daily mail. And it took some interesting turns throughout the week.. If you're thinking of doing one of these diet, anti-bloat supplement things, I'd give this a read!
