As many readers will know, I have been working hard on losing weight for the last couple of years with my healthier eating, determination and persistence. I’ve lost the best part of five stone in that time and having lost the weight, I’ve gained a new confidence in myself and my ability to do new things.
When it comes to exercise, if I’m honest, I’m a bit rubbish. I’ve always used the excuse that I am too busy with being a working Mum, looking after my three year old Olly, running the home, working on my blog and every other commitment that needs to get done before going to bed. But it’s time to make some changes. I actually miss exercise, I miss the sense of accomplishment, the rush of endorphins and actually seeing my body change with the workout.
Before Olly came along I was into Zumba and even did a bit of
running stumbling along the pavement and it had great benefits. With time being precious and finances tight, I’ve recently been introduced to the perfect solution, All Shape Up.
All Shape Up, which launches officially in November, are a health and fitness platform that will enable users to access over 100 workouts and 100 healthy recipes from anywhere in the world and at any time of the day. The workouts range from absolute beginner through to Military Fitness with Yoga, HIIT and Body Sculpt sessions so there’s something for every ability and you can do the workouts in your own home, so no need for extensive gym equipment and you can keep the curtains closed away from nosy neighbours if you really want to.
The ethos of All Shape Up is one that I can completely resonate with; Believe in Yourself, Be Patient and Enjoy it. We all know that the key to any success is a belief that you can achieve and with anything you don’t get instant results. It takes time to lose weight and the same applies to getting fitter. I know I’m never going to get into a size 10 but I do believe I can reduce the size of my Mum tum and tone up my bingo wings and with help, knowledge and support from the team at All Shape Up I know I can do it.
