Time to Get Fit - Asics Gel Galaxy 6 Running Shoes

When I was younger I was very active, swimming 4 or 5 times a week, playing tennis and football.  However, once I started A-levels I decided to focus more on my studies. Then I went off to University and I joined the Cheerleading squad and Swim team, along with the gym (albeit I didn't use the gym very much).

Since leaving university I have found myself becoming quite lazy if I'm honest. I never joined the gym, and my only form of exercise was walking. I did decide to do the 30 day shred before I went on holiday to try and tone up a bit, but I wasn't really motivated after the 30 days.

So, with some motivation from Jayne's blog I have finally decided to join the gym and so far I am loving it! I have to admit I have only been to the gym once so far as I am quite intimidated by everyone else who seems to know what they are doing. However, there is also a swimming pool and so I can carry on my love for swimming. I have been going 2 or 3 times a week for now and find its a great way to work out.  It works all the muscles in your body and is therefore great at toning your body.  

Since joining I have needed to kit myself out in new gym clothes! Weirdly, this actually makes me more motivated to go as I can't wait to wear my new outfits! After ordering 4 pairs of trainers I finally decided on a pair of Asics. My sports mad boyfriend recommended Asics and after reading up on running trainers they were highly recommended. Now, as far as trainers go, aren't they pretty? I love the neon pink, meaning they still look girly. They are also very very comfy and very supportive around your ankle which is exactly what you need.

So, this is the start of my health kick! I will update you along my journey if this is something you would like to read about :) I am also hoping to start running in the next few months once I get into my gym and swimming routine.

What are your hints and tips for getting fit and healthy? What is your favourite gym kit? I would love to hear from you all!
