Fitspiration - The Beginning

Towards the back end of last year, I was being really negative about my appearance and I found myself being ridiculously self-conscious. I've never been one of the thinnest of people (like ever), but I decided that 2015 would be the year that I journey on a path of self-improvement. I told myself that I wanted to lose seven pounds (half a stone) over the course of the year. Now usually when I set a new years resolution to lose weight, I get bored and give up within about a week, failing before I have properly begun. Its now been 7 weeks and I have all of this unexplained motivation to do well and make a positive change in my life. It is only February and already I have smashed my weight loss target for the entire year and I have managed to lose 12 pounds! (Queue the applause).

One of the reasons that I have been able to do so well with my goals, is due to my new found "love" for running! Yes you read that correctly... running! Charlotte Sophia Roberts has taken up running. No seriously, laugh - I am still trying to get my own head around this haha!

When I first started, I was running in worn out Converse and Vans as I didn't have any proper trainers and I didn't want to buy any incase I only ended up going running once (I have tried running numerous times before and this has always been the case). But after a few weeks of sticking at it, I decided to invest in these little beauties! And wow they are comfortable! When I first tried them on I felt as if I was walking on air - they were so cushiony. This would mean that my bad joints would have a better time than they would with normal trainers. 

I love that they aren't just one boring colour and that they have a watercolour like print on them. It just makes them a little different from normal trainers, and hey, who doesn't like to look good when they are working out!

I also have been enjoying using these sony headphones that I got pretty cheap on Amazon a few months ago. They don't fall out when you're moving which makes them so much better than the usual in-ear headphones that I'm used to.

I am determined to succeed with my journey and have now upped the weight loss goal to a stone. And I am already so close to beating that target! I've found by increasing my target loss as I go along is keeping me more motivated.

If you're looking, Aloha has tons of recipes that are jam-packed full with goodness and nutrition that can help you make the most of your workout. 

What do you all do to try and keep fit? And to all you fellow runners, how do you stop your legs from aching like crazy???

Thanks for reading!
Love Charlotte x
