Body Talk! New Episode Out Now!

 

Hi Guys. I am super late updating you all on my new episode I filmed with my friend. We share a Youtube channel called Ladies First where we discuss various topics such as relationship, fitness journey, current events etc! Although we are only on episode 2 we have plenty of juicy stuff for you all so please watch, support and subscribe.

In this episode we discuss body image, self confidence and how social media plays a role in the way women see themselves. As you may be aware from my previous post, body image has always been an issue for me so  i really wanted to share a little about myself and hopefully be relatable to the viewers. Learning to love yourself –  the good, the bad and the ugly is a journey and its  definitely something i’m trying to conquer.

Anyway I hope you all like it and understand that the overall message of this video is to spread love, kindness and positivity xox

10 Most Annoying Things At My Gym


As I am on my fitness/ weight loss journey cutting out junk is not the only thing I have to do in order to reach my goal… Exercise is also vital!

I must admit I hate exercising BUT I love the feeling of accomplishment afterwards and the pain I feel in my body the next day. Getting to the gym is more challenging than ever now that I’m not driving so when I do eventually drag my resentful ass to my gym the last thing I want to face is annoying ass people or things to disrupt my workout. Unfortunately annoying shit happens on every visit so heres a list of 10 things that grinds my gears!!!

1. Hogging Machines – Don’t you just hate it when you’re coming to an end of your workout and you’re waiting to use another machine but some inconsiderate twat is just sitting down NOT WORKING OUT! Many times this occurs at my gym where I’ve actually witness a man reading a newspaper STILL NOT WORKING OUT and a woman playing Candy Crush.

2. They steal machines/ equipment when they’re still being used – Now I’m all for sharing and not being a fellow hog but it’s so annoying when someone clearly sees that you have been using an equipment but feels the need to pick up it between sets. I’m having a 20 second rest sir I’m NOT finished!

3. Having full blown LOUD arguments/ conversations on the phone – I kid you not this actually happened one day. This meat head, Johnny Bravo shaped man actually had a massive argument on the phone whiles hogging a machine! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! It was so distracting especially when I was pushing 180 kg on the Leg press trying to keep strong. Although I could not understand what he was saying ( Eastern European) this man managed to out sound the loud music that was blasting from the speakers. It got so bad that eventually me and my girl turned around and told him to Shut up! Lol

4. Sweaty Betty/ Bobs forgetting to wipe down the machines – I’m a firm believer in if you’re not sweating, you’re not working hard enough BUT the last thing I want to endure is having your bodily fluids gaining contact to my skin! Gross!

5. Staff persistently offering their personal training service – I understand that personal trainers have to hustle hard and build up a clientele but if you have approached me already about what you have to offer, please leave me be until I am ready to make contact. I don’t want to have to keep dodging and diving you! Lol

6. Equipment disappearing – So annoying especially when I have a workout planned in my head and I need specific equipment which has either been stolen or misplaced.

7. Space Invaders – you know the kind of people who have no awareness of personal space! People who get on the treadmill right next to you when there are loads of empty ones. Or when you’re trying to skip and they decide to stand right in front of you!

8. Smelly People – I understand that we all get a little sweat funky after a hard workout but what drives me mad is people who smell BEFORE a workout. This only enhances the disgusting fragrance throughout their workout which results to getting a burning sensation in my nose.

9. Unattended Fully Booked Classes – My gym is the worst to book a class. You can try book a class a week in advanced and it’s still fully booked! But what annoys me the most is when I do get a place to a spinning class and there are loads of empty bikes! The least people can do is cancel their booking so that someone else can have opportunity to attend!

10. Front desk gates & security – My gym is literally on the scale of an airport! Two front desk gates which requires a gym pass to access them both! There’s been times I’ve forgotten my pass and the passionate security guard wants me to report to front desk to show some form of identification. Like to say I wasn’t here yesterday and the day before! You know my face dude just let me in!

 

*Sigh* Im going to the gym later today and just thinking about all these annoying points is getting me down! Lol I think it’s time to move to a new gym!

Make The Most Of It While You Can

It’s not often that us Londoners are blessed with a lasting hot sunny weekend but this past weekend our prayers was answered! During last week my girl made me aware of the up and coming weather and told me that we are taking a road trip to the beach! I’m not one to argue with a fun motive so of course I replied back with a “hell yeah!” Saturday we met up and got our nails done and then we hit the supermarket to buy our picnic food. We bought really cute finger snacks including humous, olives, sundried tomatoes and fruit. Sunday morning we sped down the M25 and arrived at Margate beach at 12pm. We found a car park close by which was pay and display but really reasonable! 

The vibe of Margate was really chilled and mellow, the beach wasn’t too packed and people were friendly. My girl and I brought two picnic blankets and vegged out for the whole afternoon. I haven’t been to Margate since I was a kid but it was lovely going back as an adult, seizing the day of sunshine and vibzing with good food, good music and each other’s company!

The only downfall is the bastard seagulls! We was bombarded by a tribe as soon as we took our food out. One was even brave enough to try run off with our pack of grapes 😂 luckily my girl is a tuff nut and was ready to battle with them! Me on the other hand was ducking and diving, paranoid that shit was going to land on me! Lool 

Here’s a few snaps I took of my trip xo
