Hello hello! So today I wanted to do an adidas update post for you and let you see which exercises I've been doing so far in order to help myself feel more toned and confident for Summer (and get you involved too of course) - if you don't know what I'm talking about, you can read my exciting announcement post here but basically, I've teamed up with adidas to do some amazing workouts which will should make you feel great! Summer is approaching really fast (we actually have sunshine in the UK!) so it's definitely put me in the mood to work out! For now, let's have a little catch up as I show you some of my Summer exercises!
I've been eating quite well recently, particularly over the past two weeks (you can check out my favourite healthy breakfasts post here and see why breakfast is so so important - I've really been focusing on a nice hearty breakfast recently to fill me up and stop me from snacking) but I've been finding it quite difficult not having a gym membership at home so I'm making up for that by making sure my eating is on point.
I find YouTube videos and fitness videos in general really help when I don't have a gym membership - but I always feel like I need to do them as well as going to the gym (my workouts with adidas are designed to do alongside your cardio sessions!) - I am completely obsessed with the treadmill and for me, running outside just doesn't seem to feel like I'm working myself hard enough. I've been doing 3-5 mile runs a few times a week and then doing my adidas fitness moves too. To be honest, I do feel great already (I just need to hurry up and find a good gym near my house so I can get back into my cardio and really pick that pace up!) I think I'm going to start doing my moves even more times a week now. They're quick enough to do every single day!
I've been doing a lot of walking accidentally whilst exploring new cities and new places too and I'm always out walking with my Mum when I'm home, I think it's a great way to burn some extra calories without meaning to - exercise doesn't have to be boring! Have fun with it or you can always carry extra shopping bags or get off the bus a stop early - it's so cliche but it's so true, every little helps! I did my adidas videos in my kitchen with my friend the other day and we had so much fun doing them together - we sweated, giggled and then ached a lot the next day! No pain no gain!
You can see the fitness moves I've been doing so far below (I've been trying to fit in each move twice, three times a week as well as my running but I'm gonna up my pace now as Summer is getting closer) and make sure you keep an eye on the adidas Facebook page for more as they will keep getting released on a weekly basis on the run up to Summer!

We all know lunges work the legs too so don't forget about these!
So this is just a little update and some of the moves/work outs I've been doing to help get ready for Summer!
