Life in Lockdown: My Favourite Workout Moves

Disclaimer: Please note that this is meant to be a lighthearted blog post. If exercise/fitness is a triggering subject for you, please do not continue to read my post below. 2020 has turned into the year of finding my love for exercise. In particular, it's been a time to discover my favourite workout moves. I've been victim to fad diets and cutting back my daily calories without exercising at all. It wasn't sustainable so there's no surprise my weight crept back on. This year I've made it my mission to start being proactive with exercise. I've increased my exercise regime and started eating a varied healthy diet. I started all this back in March and I've discovered exercise is enjoyable. All whilst staying away from the temptation of fast food & snacks. Maybe lockdown has had some pe...

Life in Lockdown: After Lockdown Bucket List

The original idea for this post was inspired by Alice Spake, check out her post here: After Lockdown Bucket List. It made me think about what I want to do when we return to some sort of normality. Granted we don't know when 'normality' may return in the UK, 2020 has certainly turned into a topsy-turvy kinda year. Okay, it's not exactly a bucket list we'd all want to be writing at the moment. However, it's certainly given me some excitement & hope during this lull of a lockdown. These little things in life that I may have taken for granted before lockdown began, I can't wait to have back in my life again. My After Lockdown Bucket List (not specifically in order!) See my boyfriend Jared - long-distance relationships are hard and I want cuddles See my friends Work back in the off...

Life in Lockdown: 25th April 2020

Howdy! So it's been 25 days since I last wrote a blog post... Honestly, I've lost all my passion for writing on here at the moment. Granted a huge influence on that is having no freedom to travel anywhere, therefore the main essence of my blog is on hold whilst we all tackle the COVID-19 situation. My creative spark has disappeared slightly so I've been putting all my energy into other things. So what's happened since my last Life in Lockdown blog post? Not a lot has changed in all fairness. The UK lockdown was extended for a further three weeks, meaning it is currently set to end on 7th May 2020. Not gonna lie, this extension so far has been more a struggle for my own mental health. I'm missing having the freedom to go out and see my friends when I want. I'm missing my boyfriend. I'm mi...

Life in Lockdown: 1st April 2020

Well, the last few weeks have been a crazy time, hasn't it? I know I haven't written any blog posts for the past 3 weeks, and I'm going to be honest, I haven't felt like writing anything. The whole COVID-19 situation has really shaken up all our routines. With my blog focused on travel, this will be on hold and I'll be writing updates about my general day to day life and fitness regimes. Provided I get the motivation to write anything each week that is. I miss travelling and having the freedom to see my boyfriend and close friends whenever I want to. All I want to do is get in my car and go for a long drive to see the people I care about. I'm incredibly grateful for having my family around to support me and keeping me sane. It's certainly going to be the new normal for the time being but ...
