May: Workouts

May: Workouts


Happy Monday lovelies, hav you had a good bank holiday? I spent the weekend working and today it’s been a real struggle with the heat, but I have managed to smash out some posts!

This month, I am working hard on myself, not to necessarily lose weight, but to make myself feel more comfortable. Today for breakfast I had my first banana delight shake, it was amazing! You’re meant to have it as a replacement for two meals, but I am going to start off just having it for breakfast because I don’t eat normally anyway.

For lunch I had a litre of water and a cereal bar. Then for dinner I had breaded chicken, mashed potatoes and peas. It’s all about balance and eating at the right times (and actually eating!)

For my exercise today I went for a half an hour walk (the heat is just to much for me). I have put together a workout routine for the month though. If you want to join in, let me know in the comments and drop your Instagram handles below too, so I can send you as much support as I can. Here is my May workout routine.

  • I work on this day so I’ll do an average of 4,000 steps.


  • I work on Sundays too, I do an average of 4,000 steps.

That’s it for my workout routine, I have some quotes I’d love to share with you.

Key reminders

  1. You MUST eat! You still need to consume the right amount of calories, if you don’t eat and you workout, you’re not losing fat!
  2. Drink PLENTY of WATER! Even if you’re taking shakes or suppliments, you have to make sure you’re hydrated.
  3. Work at your OWN pace! Don’t jump the gun and try doing everything straight away, you have to build yourself up. Don’t risk an injury trying to do something your body has never tried before.
  4. Do this FOR YOU! Only do this if it is something you want, not something that someone said you should do.

Thank you for reading lovelies, I hope you enjoyed this post. If you did, leave a like and a comment below, if you didn’t, let me know how I can improve.

Have a great evening, I’ll be back tomorrow with a new interview post.

Love always,

A x
