working out

Recently I joined a gym which I know isn't really ground breaking but it is actually one of the best things I have ever done!
Now it was never my goal to lose loads of weight in the first place more of just a way of gradually toning up as I had seem to have gained love handles and abit of bulg on my tummy! ( being a student mainly to blame for this and the copious times that I went to eat out!) However I have experienced so many other benefits other than losing abit of weight and toning up! Since starting the gym I started adding metabolism boosting things into my diet such as hot water and lemon, grapefruits on a morning and drinking so much more water while cutting out fizzy drinks and junk food! The results have been amazing I have lost weight around my waist but not only that my skin has improved and so have my moods!!! The best part is I dont even feel like it is much effort as the only thing I am denying myself is mcdonalds and I still treat myself on the odd occasion! I also go to fun classes such as zumba amd aerobics with friends so it doesnt even feel like hard work. I have so much more enthusiasm to get things done and genuinely feel fitter and healthier which I never thought would happen as I was so lazy before!!! Basically I am writin this to maybe inspire someone to add abit more exercise into their routine even if its just dowloading a work out app that takes 10 minutes to do or adding improvement to a diet, the littlest things really do work!

Does anyone else have any hints or tips I could maybe try or similiar experience to me? Let me know!

Brugges, Belgium.

This month I decided to go on a christmas break to Brugges in Belgium with my boyfriend. It was sooo cheap to get there because we got a ferry which one 2 for 1 so was around 73 pounds for both of us which includes an overnight ferry stay there and back! Once you get there you also get picked up by the coach and taken into Brugges, we decided to stay an extra night to see as much as possible. Brugges is very pretty and so festive this time of year as it has a massive Christmas market and ice skating rink. We visited Ice Magic as soon as we got there which is an exhibition totally made out of ice which was incredible. We made sure we visited the museum in the town hall just off the square and climbed over 300 steps to the top of the main tower in the square which had amaaaazing views. I ended up buying copious amounts of Belguim chocolate and drank way to much flavoured beer! I had such a good time and it made me feel so Christmassy, I would recommend going to everyone!

Merry Christmas,
