So, as you know, I’ve been getting my fitness on by joining a gym. I now go four days a week participating in two Body Balance, two Zumba and one Step class (that’s right, your math is correct, I do participate in two classes in one day! *kissing the big guns*). I have to admit that I love it. The place is friendly, the instructors great and I’m starting to see – and feel – some real benefits.

Since I’ve been a bit slow on the whole exercise front I don’t really own any proper “fashionable” gym clothes, just a few pairs of leggings and tops from Target.Β  Don’t get me wrong, they do the job fine, however, when I’ve lost a dress size or two I plan on treating myself to some Lorna Jane (great quality work-out wear that comes with a heavier price tag than the Red Dot Boutique). What I do really believe in though, is taking care of your feet, and while my old trainers have done me well for the past four years I felt it really was time for a new pair. Could also have been that piece of plastic jabbing out through the heal lining that gave me the idea too.

Now, you may be wondering how on earth I can waffle on about a new pair of trainers to the point it requires it’s own post and not just a photo on Instagram. Well, because I’ve not been happy with my body shape for a while I don’t really get any pleasure from clothes shopping. The fact I deem myself worthy enough for a pair of sparkly new trainers is a big thing for me and one that has given me so much happiness.

You see a pair of new trainers and I see hope, confidence and health.

I also see the fact I’m going to be making all my fellow work out buddies mega jello come my next class *insert winky face here*.

Until next time,


Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. Trainers purchased from Footlocker (reduced by over 50% due to a teeny-tiny mark on one of the tongues). Love me a bargain, especially of the hot pink and turquoise variety.


  1. What does not kill you will make you stronger, except sharks, sharks will kill you. That’s what my tee shirt says anyway !!! Dad xxx

  2. Good for you love, HUGE bargain on those shoes, plus they are SO pretty. I got new ones recently, they were an amazing price, but they are pretty much your white standard variety πŸ™‚

    1. Awesome!! See if I get white they will look brown instantly because of my walking and generally inability to keep my clothes clean! I am still not over the massive bargain though – $50 reduced from $120 – KA-CHING!!!
