Fitness Session

Are you struggling to get into the spirit of going to the gym now that Autumn is here? To be honest it's always daunting to take that first step into actually getting ready to work out, but once that workout is over you feel amazing! You kind of feel invincible and like you've accomplished something, which you have. So I thought I would share with you guys my gym essentials and ways to get yourself active.

Exercising Daily  is doubly important in the colder months. People tend to put on weight this time of year because they are eating more comforting foods and lets be honest we would rather snuggle up on a sofa then stick to our exercise routines.

So for me, I prefer to stay and workout at home, I find it more comfortable in the Autumn/Winter months to stay in and use my App or Workout DVD. But, if I were to go to a gym I would use all of these gym essentials:

1. Nourishing Body Lotion - This intensive body lotion nourishes and conditions the skin, leaving behind a delicate fragrance. Perfect for an after gym session - Grace Cole - Flowers wild rose jasmine geranium.

2. I know that it's not good to wear make up to the gym but if it were me I couldn't go completely without make up so I would use my Rimmel London BB Cream 9 in 1 skin perfecting super make up - SPF 20 in Light just to make me feel a little more put together for the gym.

3. I would just use a lip liner and softly line this MUA intense colour liner in a soft pink to my lips.

4. I always like to look presentable when leaving the house for a gym session so painted nails is a must! I love this Orly Colour Blast in the shade Cherry Cream perfect color to "Work it"

5. Most importantly this limited edition Simple - Kind to skin cleansing Facial Wipes designed by Holly Fulton, exclusive to Superdrug. They're perfect for prepping my skin before applying make up. But also great for removing make up after my workouts!

 Some more essentials I would use for before and after my workouts would be the Nivea Soft Face and Hand Cream; The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter (smells amazing!) and obviously some antiperspirant the one I use is the Sure Women Ultra Dry.

One of the things that I do when I am feeling unmotivated is to look up motivational quotes on social media things like: " I'm tired; It's Too Cold; It's too Hot; It's Raining; I don't have time LET'S GO!"
or "I'm Doing this for me". Also another thing that helps me when I'm just not feeling it is to update my playlist - New tunes can be a great way to get our butts of that sofa and getting our workout on!

Another thing that really helps me stay on top of my fitness routine is to have designated days for my workouts. So, lets say on Mondays I do cardio full body exercise. I would then change it up on the Wednesday to toning up my abs, it always works for me and not only does it work for you it works for your body as well. Lastly, it's always good to have a workout buddy, someone who won't let you give up as easily or someone that you can both bounce off of one another, like in my case me and my sister help each other stay strong and "Just Do It".

So that was my Fitness Session / Advice for you guys I hoped you Enjoyed this post and I will be back with a Brand new post later on this week.
