The Feel Good Files #1

Thanks for popping over to my little corner of the web.
I've decided to start a new series of blog posts called 'The Feel Good Files'

Through this series I'll be sharing my daily personal fitness activities - excluding any rest days.
Among them will be general health and fitness musings and I believe sharing them here will encourage me even further to keep up with my progression. Hopefully in doing so I can connect with like minded enthusiasts!

I'm completely in love with working out at home, it is my safe haven and makes the whole process easier and 100% more appealing than trekking to the gym. Though on dry days i like to make use of the garden and take my work out OUT.

Today I was seriously lacking in motivation and pretty much forced myself into my gym gear.
As soon as I put my sports bra I got straight into an active mood. This is currently my go to method of motivation when I'm feeling lazy, if I throw some sporty clothes on I suddenly perk up.. must be something about the Lycra!

Then I got Keaira LaShae up on YouTube, she's my go to fitness guru and will likely feature a lot through The Feel Good Files. I love her videos because I find she pushes me a lot and really makes me feel encouraged.

I chose an intense cardio workout because I'd already had two rest days prior. Which always makes me feel meh! So I dove right back in..

I was dripping in sweat after completing it and my face was burning red. 

It was totally worth it!

Towards the end I stopped the moves a little sooner than she did each time, in order to respect my body. I always stay aware of that to avoid any injuries. Even though I push harder through most workouts ultimately I listen to my body for guided progression.

Who is your favourite fitness guru?
