Each week is what we make it and I want to make this week another active and happy one. Last week was a great second full week of 2016. At the start of last week I was booked on my first sportswear shoot of the year and whilst being pushed to my fitness limits, we captured some truly incredible fitness shots, which I cannot wait to see when they come out! It reminded me of how much I enjoy doing those kind of jobs and it really motivated me to push my fitness levels further so that I can become stronger and better at what I do…it also had me feeling motivated when on Thursday’s lingerie job I could actually see some faint ab definition on some of the photos, something that had not been visible since way before Christmas. I’m no Jessica Ennis but hurrah to see that pushing yourself will slowly pay off.
When it comes to working out I have to remind myself that it doesn’t just have to take place in the gym, or at home. I want to get outdoors more, breathe in the fresh air and take advantage of my surroundings.
A regular excuse of mine is the weather. During the summer I often go for long walks or hikes in countryside but then when the cold weather comes in, I almost go into hibernation mode and even getting myself to and from the gym can become a chore. The new year has, like with many people, given me a new bout of enthusiasm for fitness. I haven’t gone on any crazy diet (not that I would last two minutes anyway) but enjoying balance and keeping active is something that helps me to feel happy and keeps my energy levels up.
