Body magic and slimming world


Body magic!!

Well my Sunday was very different to how I used to spend my Sundays!! Normally I’d wake up, false lashes still on, sometimes clothes still on lol. My first thoughts were, oh my god what did I drink last night!! Then the entire day would consist of eating, TV, Facebook, then repeat until bed time!!

Today I bounced out of bed at 7.45am, had a big breakie of smoked salmon, scan bran, scrambled egg and sautéed veg. Threw some gym clothes on and drove to draycote waters. We co ordinated a sw race for life event today. Members from all different groups met up and did a five mile run/walk. That’s quite bloody far, especially if you’re out of practice!! I do lots of gym classes but outdoor running is so much harder!!!! I really enjoyed it though, it was so lovely seeing everyone. We need to work out what we raised and how much weight we’d lost between us. One amazing couple have lost now 19 stone between them!! Just wonderful.

After we completed it I headed to the nearest subway, I was starving!! Syn free turkey salad for me, came home and used some balsamic vinegar to keep it syn free. I love love love subway salads!!! My bf had a meat club and crisp’s ha ha, he’d earned it though, so I’ll let him off 😉

Then after a five minute break I was busy again moving more stuff from my old house!! Fridges, dressers, office stuff, flipping hard work!! Three tip runs later and I’m done! Queue a big bowl of fruit, fat free Total Greek 0% yogurt and some choc shot. Heaven!!!! I had one large glass of wine last night and one small one then went on to tea!! How my life has changed!!!! I’d best make up for this grown up adult behaviour soon!!!!

Having withdrawals today as no shopping!! Might have to have a quick peek online now!! Have a lovely Sunday all.

Do you every struggle to fit in body magic? I’m moving house next weekend, so with work, moving etc the gym has fallen off this week. I feel pretty rubbish for it and to be honest it’s probably just an excuse, but other things have to take priority sometimes.

However what I try and do when I can’t get to the gym is use my trx. I’ve only recently discovered these, it seems to be the latest craze amongst female celebs. If you’ve seen the pictures of Danielle Lloyd looking amazing, you’ll know what I mean. A lot of mothers use them after having babies as they are fantastic at helping you to re build your core muscles.

Me being me, I had to test it out! I showed my bf the pics and he said he’d got some trx straps!!! Amazing! Now the first time I tried it the door wasn’t secure and I literally fell flat on my face ha ha, very embarrassing. Luckily I didn’t smash any teeth when I crashed to the floor ha ha. No one saw though so it’s fine!! My bedroom door was stronger so I had a go in there. I just googled trx work outs and found some fab ones on you tube. You just fix them to the door shut the door and then do different exercises. As it uses your entire body weight you can get really good results really quickly.

So what is a trx?!? The TRX was the brainchild of a Navy Seal, born out of necessity for keeping in shape during deployment. The principles are simple: hang it up (you can do this at home using a secure bracket), grab the stirrups and work your body against gravity to build muscle and burn fat. The instability caused by the suspension develops serious strength that’s very hard to replicate with regular weights.

You can buy them online, it’s more of an American thing but it’s quickly getting more and more popular over here, I’d highly recommend them as long as you can be motivated to exercise at home. It’s fab for a busy mom or for someone that maybe can’t afford a monthly gym fee. They aren’t cheap, but they are fab and will last forever.

I’ve shared some pics so you can see what I mean. Happy Fopping xxx
