Let's get physical!

Hi guys,

'Let me hear your body talk! Your body talk!'

Soo ignoring the cheesy 80's hit by Olivia Newton John (FYI totally singing into my hairbrush right now!) I'm talking about working out. Keep it clean people! Keep it clean!

Drum roll please! I would like to welcome you to my first ever fitness, fashion post!! Yey happy dance :D

For those familiar with my blog and as the blog title suggests, I'm on a weight loss endeavour. This girl is kicking fats butt and part of my healthier lifestyle is exercise! 

Yes the 'E' word. I'm currently walking my dogs twice a day at a brisk pace. I have 3 staffies, so the reality is, I can't not do a brisk pace! Lol. Plus I'm doing home exercises like squats, lunges, planks blah blah etc etc.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by who's online store sell clothing from printed tees, kids novelty tops, to fashion and fitness attire for both men and women.

On checking out the site I was impressed. They are so affordable and stock various brands and I was really excited to see American Apparel. This brand make really comfortable gear, especially for the fitness enthusiasts :D

(Trainers, weights and bottle are mine)

Now I have to be honest with you guys, I'm not ready to show the Internet world my lumps and bumps just yet. I'm too much woman to handle right now ;) 

Then I had an epiphany and rather than just write 'I wore a red top, it felt nice' I decided to get some additional pieces and my friend agreed to model for me! :)

The leggings and trainers are the models own (always wanted to write that!)
Please be gentle! Lot harder than I thought doing a clothing picture! Respect to fashion bloggers everywhere! 

How fabulous is that yellow top! I mean, you go for a run in the dark and no one will miss you! I was given a red one (slightly, ok a lot larger) and the material is brilliant. Super soft and sooo comfortable whilst working out. I want to live in mine!
These tops are from the Active Dry range so you know they are going to keep the air flowing whilst exercising, thus keeping you cool.

They start from £1.91 and come in a range of colours :)

Sports Bra by American Apparel. This was a great bra for strapping the girls down! Nice material that felt soft with a firm band and tight elastic to hold you in place whilst you're moving.
Nothing worse than jumping up and down and feeling like your boobs will fly away. Ouch.

Erm did I forget to mention that, these start from £10.78! Bargain for the quality you're getting. I've bought sports bras for waayyy more, that are about as useful as a chocolate fire guard!

I was also sent some sweat pants (see first picture above) which are a really lovely material, don't feel cheap and were perfect to workout in.
I'm not showing my fat arse and thunder thighs on here but nice, comfy pants that you don't have to sell a kidney for ;)

So that's my first clothing post over with. I hope you enjoyed reading this and have some motivation to get moving! You can look great without spending a fortune! 

Go check out the site is easy to use, has fast shipping and they even offer discount on multiple buys! 
What you waiting for? Go grab yourself some fabulous goodies :)

Oh just so you know, now the weather is getting brighter, I'm soo ordering this top! I will rock this on my dog walks!

What do you think? ;)

Much Love,

PS: All opinions are my own. My top, bra and sweat pants were provided by with the other stuff being bought by me and before anyone starts going on about 'freebies' I'd like to point out that writing, amateur photography and making sure I live up to my A in English Language, all take time! Not to mention I got off my lazy bum to give you lovely lot my honest opinion ;) you're welcome by the way *mwah*
