Joining the gym πŸ‘Š

So, I’ve done it, I’ve joined the gym! It is pretty much opposite our flat, it takes less than 2 minutes to walk there so there’s no excuse really is there? (Keep telling yourself that Roseanne!) For just using that gym it’s only Β£19.99 which I didn’t think was too bad either considering this is usually my bug bear about gyms (they are seriously expensive right!?!) That and the fact I spend most of my time trying to work out how to turn the machine on to a suitable level & where I can plug my headphones in (gym essential no 1!)

So in  preparation for sed joining of the gym I decided to kit myself out. Well I may as well look the part!! Because let’s be honest I havnt got a clue what I’m doing once I’m in there.
So let’s take a look at my costume ( I mean gym gear πŸ˜†) 

Disclaimer: I’m not sponsored by Primark but 1. I BLOODY love it. You’ll know that if you’ve been round here before or met me in real life And 2. I’m going to sweat all over it, why spend a fortune?!

First up, tops! 

I picked two different tops, both made of that similar gym clothing material (which according to the label is ….. Polyester & elastene, theres a fun fact for ya! Stretchy stretchy!) 

I chose a pink top and a light grey one as I thought these were nice and would go nicely with the leggings I also picked up. These were Β£5 each.


I went for 3/4 length ones as I prefer these and I picked them up in light grey, love these.

They were Β£5.

I picked up another sports bra/crop top thing. I already have one from Primark from a little while ago, that I use for Parkrun, that looks like this ⬇

The new one I picked up is just a plain black one.

This was Β£3.50.

I also grabbed some socks! Does anyone else have somewhere in their house where their socks must go for a holiday because I buy so many and yet never have any to wear!! 

I picked these up especially for the gym so I will put these in a super safe place! (Like that’s going to make a difference Roseanne.) Worth a try.

They cost Β£2.50.

And finally, a lovely new water bottle (I have a serious water bottle/travel mug/lunchbox obsession. Is this what happens when you become an adult in a full time job?) It’s seriously getting out of hand BUT this ones lovely and hardly breaks the bank at Β£2.50 So let the obsession continue. 

So, those are my gym bits and bob’s.

On a serious note, I need to change my mindset really because I can’t just think I can eat crap and get away with it because I’ve done a class or been for a run, I need to make exercise a part of a more balanced lifestyle. Wish me luck 🀞

Until next time,

A Slimming World update 🍳

I thought I’d do a quick update on Slimming World since the wedding (Is she going to shut up about this wedding anytime soon? Probably not :mrgreen:)

I was maintaining for quite a while Pre wedding in order to fit into my dress and am chipping away at the weight I put on from the wedding/ the week after when I wasn’t very strict 😜 

This week I lost 1/2 a lb which you probably think was barely worth it but I had a bad  weekend (bad in terms of SW, great for my stomach) with Tim’s birthday celebrations so I was doing damage control this week, and as they say a loss is a loss after all!!

My current countdown is to this…

Our honeymoon 😍😍🇮🇹 Sardinia, Italy

Two weeks to go!!!

Two weeks to go means two more ‘weigh ins’. I’m hoping for two good loses in these weeks and there shouldn’t be anything in my way, fingers crossed.

My aim this week: 2lbs.
Next week is the last few days of term then it’s the summer holidays, so planning is going to be the key to success as well as…

– Lots of healthy yummy snacks

– Meals ready prepared 

– A list of foods that I can use my syns on

– Lots of speed foods 
Here’s hoping the week goes well, wish me luck!

Until next time, 

Roseanne 🙂
