As you may know, if you've read previous posts of mine. I'm on a health kick at the moment, and I'm trying to lose a bunch of weight to get down to my goal of 112lbs. So far I've lost 20lbs, and I'm eager to keep it up.
I have health problems (Postural Orthistatic Tachycardia Syndrome), and in the past, I've always been wary of exercising, because I collapse enough as it is, without increasing my heart rate voluntarily. However, my doctors have told me in the past that I need to get exercise, and my mum who works in the health profession as well, has also encouraged me to work out. So I've been doing some workouts, at home.
I downloaded an app to my tablet called 7. It's a challenge to do a 7 minute workout every day for 7 months. Now, because of my health, I can't always manage to do it everyday, but I do try and get one circuit done as often as I can.
I'm extremely fortunate to live near the beach, so as often as I can, I'll go for a walk with my brother, sister or my parents (I'm not allowed out on my own, because I collapse too often and without warning, and sometimes wind up unconscious).
I've recently purchased a FitBit One, and can I just say, I love it. I managed to get it cheaper, because I found one on an Amazon warehouse deal. I was thrilled, because I'd wanted one for a while, and then they announced that FitBit now linked with weight watchers, and I wanted one even more.
I love that it gives you goals each day, because it motivates me to reach them, so I do more activity. The other night, I had collapsed and couldn't stand up, so I was finding ways of reaching my calorie burning goals, without having to stand up.
Now, I really want to step up my weight loss even more, so I've been discussing it with my mum, and I've decided that I'm going to join the gym. It's only a five minute drive from our house, and my parents are both members, so even though I always need someone with me, I'll definitely have someone to go with.
I'm excited to be joining, and can't wait to see the weight continue to drop off.
One other thing that excites me about joining the gym, is that it's giving me an excuse to buy some gym clothes, and I love buying new clothes.
So I decided to take a look at Fabletics. It's a sister company of JustFab, which I've used in the past to buy some very nice boots. It's co-founded by Kate Hudson, and there are some really nice workout clothes on there. The best part is, you can get your first outfit for just £22!

I'll definitely be getting my workout clothes from them, and I've already seen at least three different outfits that I want! Eek, I shall have to narrow it down.
