My Inspiration x

Thought I would be a little bit soppy and talk about my inpirations to work out. Leading a healthy lifestyle has been a passion of mine for the last 5 years. Most people are truly supportive and really motivate me to do better. In the past I have dated guys who will do absolutely anything to make my healthy life challenging – until I met this boy.

Nicolas is a dream, he is my man, my inspiration but has also joined me in the healthy life! A former sweet tooth baby – he has dropped the candy and reached for the protein. We train together with our personal trainer on Sunday and its a pleasure to have the support of my closest mate.


We hit our personal training session and believe me in the world of PT no-one cares you have had two weeks off over Christmas! 1 hour of weights and HiiT has left one of us unable to physically walk the stairs and the other unable to lift arms above elbow height!7

After such a long session though – we did treat ourselves to a Mango and Papaya Smoothie (recipe in previous post) which soothed the initial ache

What is your inspiration?
