Ive got so many reviews I really want to post for you, but the problem is Ive gone and lost my camera. My video camera is retty awful too so I cant take any pictures at the minute, nightmare. I was thinking what could I post that didnt need photos. So although this would benefit from my own photos, Im gunna talk about what Ive been doing to try and achieve "bikini body" status.
With it being uni exam revision and essay time, I havent been ding as much as Id like to, but Ive definately been going in the right direction.
As far as exercise goes, I ordered the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD, and a little pair of womens weights to use with it.
So far Ive done three days of it and Im really enjoying it, but it is bloody hard! I thought people were exagerating but it really is tough on your body, which I like as it means its actually working. The first day I did it I could barely move my legs after, I went to stand up and my jelly legs took me to sitting on the floor haha.
I do feel though, that doing this for 30 days straight is a bit tough on your body, so Im doing it in three day chunks, then resting for a day. I think this is sensible for someone like me who never normally exercises at all, rather than just going at it non stop.
I think buying the weights really makes a difference too. I use the Pineapple ones below. Yeh, you could use a tin of beans but the weights are just easier to use I find.
Im no dietitian, so in terms of diet, Im not really doing anything drastic or strict as Im really not trying to lose any weight, just be healthier. Ive been replacing snacks of biscuits or crisps with fruit, and trying to eat more fresh veg and home cooked meals over fast food and takeaways. So far Ive been doing pretty well with it, I dont refuse myself anything, if I want to get dessert Ill have it, otherwise Id resent doing this and stop altogether.
Ive also swapped regular tea for green tea, I like the Tetleys ones, and any fizzy drinks for fruit juice or water, which I find I like both better anyway so thats a bonus.
This has been a mammoth post without me even realising! So Ill leave the skincare and oter thing for next time! Let me know if you have any tips :)
