Current Workout Routine

I decided to do a blog post on my current workout routine as the warmer weather is here...finally, so there is no excuse to be  a couch potato. I've decided to this a bit more casual than I have seen other people do this as there is only so much detail I can go into as every time I workout I mix it up slightly. I hope this inspires you or gives you any ideas for a workout.

Monday - Gym Day
Monday nights after school I get off the bus at the gym, get changed and then workout for two hours. I don't have a set workout I follow but I usually do a minimum of thirty minuets on the cross trainer where I would usually do anywhere form 3-6 miles on there. I do light weights just to tone up my body and then before I leave I spend a little while on the mats doing my routine of:
20 Squats,
20 Lunges,
20 Donkey kicks on each leg,
10 Push ups,
1 minuet plank.
I will repeat this a few times depending on how much energy I have as I will have just come home from school so some days I am a little bit tired. If I really want to push myself I will use 3kg weights when I do my squats, lunges and donkey kicks.

Tuesday - Running Night
On a Tuesday night I go to a running club where I will anywhere from 3 miles to 7 miles. I on average run the 5 miles route which is good as it provides me with a high level of fitness and keeps me healthy. Joining a running club is a great way to get into running and a lovely way to make friends and use it as a social activity too. Joining this running club has also brought out the slightly competitive side to me. I have taken part in a few races as well.

Saturday - Football
Every Saturday morning I coach a children's football team so I get really involved with the kids and run around warm them up doing lots of stretches. We go on a run around the football pitch and run around as I play football which is Fartlek training as it is varied with speed and stamina.

Sunday - Run
On a Sunday I like to go on a little 2 mile run from my house to the local football ground where my brother plays so I can run to his game and watch him play. I find this really enjoyable as it a early morning run which sets me up for the rest of the day, its a lovely way to wake up and be refreshed first thing.

Big City Adventure!

Throwing it all the way back to boxing day but rather then spending the week after christmas at home doing nothing, this year myself and my family decided to fly out to Chicago and stay in a hotel for a few days and be proper tourists around the big city. I stayed at the Sheraton Grand hotel which is quite central in the city your not in manic rush of the magnificent mile which is just a mile long road of shops which is spent probably too much money in but you have everything around you like restaurants slightly less busy shops, Starbucks (on every street corner).
I was my first time in Chicago and it did not disappoint. We were only there for seven days so we packed everyday full of fun and sight seeing including Ice skating, John Green aquarium and we went up the 360 Chicago building which is the second highest building in Chicago ad myself and my Dad did the tilt. The tilt for those who don't know, is where you stand up against a panel of glass facing out of the building and t…

November Favorites

This is my November favourites its actually quite a short one this month but I guess I have been using my normal products and stuff but these thing I have been loving on another level!!!

Avon Nail varnish So it's almost Christmas and I think this nail varnish is very festive and sparkly without being too much considering it's not even December yet. It's from Avon and I bought this nail varnish roughly this time last year but I feel like I have rediscovered this product and I am constantly wearing it right now. It is made up of lots of glitter in silver, gold and black, together they make such a nice shimmery colour. They do still sell this at Avon for £3.00 however they changed the names and shades slightly but I love all of them and I think I might have to purchase some more.

T Mug This past month I have been loving this mug, it has a T on it for my name and I've been enjoying tea and hot chocolate out of it. I'm not sure where it came from as it was a present from…

Christmas Throwback

So I have gone through Facebook and all the laptops in the house to look for all our old christmas December photos with a Christmas theme so here are the findings. Looking at these pictures have really made me smile, we did have some more but I just can't find them.

This is super bad quality but I think was two years ago at Broadditch farm when we went to buy a tree, we had a look round the shop and myself and my mum decided that we wanted to take a selfie in these super cool glasses.

This is 2012 when we decorated the living room and bought new decorations, I love this picture it makes me feel so cosy.
I love this collage I made two years ago I think and Cooper my dog was being super cute and he got lots of presents on Christmas day.
This is in 2011 and we had snow in December but not christmas day. This was like the beginning of December and we went to a winter wonderland somewhere and they had like a little zoo bit then we went and bought ice cream. Also I am now realizing how…
