Fitness Update #1

Taken from Pinterest.

That last few weeks I've been quite unwell. Extreme tiredness and endless nausea along with other less lovely symptoms. The worst one is a loss of appetite because I never lose that and that must mean I'm ill. I've gone for some blood tests and am booked in for some other tests so hopefully I'll find out what is wrong in a few weeks.  This has led me to be a bit lazy with my exercise routine as a lot of days I just want to go home after work and sleep. But on the good days where I have a bit of energy I get my butt into the gym. Anyways here's a few updates this week fitness wise:

#1 I have always hated my arms and it's been the thing I've focused on the most over the last two weeks. I always end my gym sessions with weights and been really pushing myself when it comes to my upper arms and I'm seeing such fast results especially in my biceps which have some definition now! My triceps aka bingo wings are my problem so if anyone knows an effective workout for them please share it with me.

#2 I managed to bring my 5k time down again to 30:51 which is something I'm really proud of! Now I want to start doing longer runs and seeing how long I can run for rather than how far.

#3 I'm lucky that we get lunch provided for us at work and some days it is lovely but some days it's simple and quite stodgy. I've been making big salads with no carbs and lots of protein to give me energy throughout the afternoon. 

#4 This week I am really upping my healthy eating and gym sessions as I know I can't go over the weekend (alcohol and greasy spoons will be the diet of V Festival) and I want to look as good as I can!

  1. I'm trying to tone up my triceps as well...I go on either the arm machine for about 5-6 minutes or rowing for 5-10 minutes. That's toned them up loads! x
