Shaping up for Summer!

Sunday, April 10, 2016

Summer is rapidly creeping up on us, we all know that! Every year I constantly promise myself to work harder, eat better and prepare myself for getting into those pretty bikinis! Like many of us, it doesn't usually go to plan, I am always wishing I worked harder when I am sunbathing on a beach! It is far too easy to fall out of a routine, especially when you're at University like myself! I am constantly snacking on naughty treats and I avoid exercise at all costs (well, the majority of the time)! It may come as a surprise but I am extremely body conscious, I don't have a favourite body part! I am quite short (5'2) yet quite curvy, particularly on my hips and so it is very noticeable when I gain a few pounds!

As a result, I have decided to do something about it and get my body confidence back! I was recently introduced to an online personal training hub named Ghogy, offering affordable, progressive and tailored programmes. Upon speaking to the Ghogy team, I realised it would be a great opportunity to try out the plan and really get myself back into shape! I signed up to the twelve week 'Trim and Tone' plan as it suited my lifestyle perfectly, I informed my personal trainer that I would prefer to exercise at home rather than the gym and a plan was tailor-made for me. 

My plan consists of three main meals a day and two snacks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. It isn't calorie based and I have the opportunity to pick my own meals from a wide selection! Any dietary requirements can be taken into consideration and I love the fact that I can mix up my meals. I will be uploading my before photos and progress photos halfway through the plan to show you all how I am getting on. I think one of the most motivational parts of a healthy eating plan is before and after photos, they really encourage you to keep going! The best thing for me about this plan is knowing that I can email my personal trainer whenever I wish to perhaps ask for tips or new recipes and of course, added motivation if I need it!

I am really looking forward to sharing my results with you and if any of you are interested then check out the Trim and Tone plan here! For an added bonus, I have a discount code to share with you all entitling you to 20% off... 'LAUREN20'. Thank me later!
