Sorry for the lack of blog posts yesterday but it ended up being a rather hectic day! This was my cosy & simple errands day outfit from when we took Emilia to ballet and went to the post office! I wore my white 7 for All Mankind jeans (they are lovely but kind of a nightmare when it's raining...think getting in & out of cars etc.!), fluffy grey & Other Stories jumper, grey Bailey Button Uggs, Mango jacket (this is the new leather one I featured in my sales haul!) and Prada handbag. I was going to wear a higher heel boot but decided to opt for comfort instead as it was FREEZING and these are so cosy!
I've been working out 5 days a week lately and I love it. Doing it in the mornings is such an energy booster and kind of gets me set up & ready for the day. I have tried exercising at all different times including evenings and late afternoon but I can safely say that this is the one that works best for me! Sometimes though, you just can't manage it and life gets in the way...so I might have to try & squeeze it in during nap-time and that's okay too! I included my workout routine in my most recent What I Ate Wednesday video if you want to check that out. I do switch it up depending on what Lucy puts together for me (and have changed it since then!) but I always try and include it in the middle of videos to keep you guys updated so you can follow along with me! A workout session generally takes me in or around 20 minutes and I do the same routine three times (with plenty of water in between!). Luckily Jonathan & I have transformed our garage into a home gym with loudspeakers, a mirror, floor mats and various bits of equipment which is amazing! I honestly feel like HIIT (high intensity interval training) has completely changed my outlook on exercise...it keeps my body feeling challenged, I don't get bored of my workouts, it's quick & easy to fit into any busy schedule and best of all it's been proven to raise your metabolism and keep your body burning energy for hours after you work out. I highly recommend it if you're looking to tone up your whole body without any fancy equipment or joining a gym. I know I've said this before but Lucy has a TON of great HIIT videos on her channel and has even put together a wonderful FREE January workout plan for both beginners & intermediate. So now you have no excuses girls ;) You CAN get fit in 2016!
Here's the video I was talking about...what I ate in a day and my workout routine! Hope you enjoy!
