Today I want to go a little bit deeper and let you in on my secret. My favorite routines, programmes, and fitness enthusiasts.
I have stopped being an avid gym buff- mainly because I need to become more disciplined and get my ass into the gym. These days I work out at home and outdoors.
While I started off with Focus T25, I soon turned to alternatives, such as Insanity Max (currently in my second month!) and any sort of cross-fit, dancing, aerobics and dancing. I work out alone on a regular basis, so I need to constantly change my routine so that I stay motivated and do not get bored!
I also have recently started wearing brighter workout clothes as a way of staying motivated and I usually blast my favorite playlist from Deezer. You know you have done a routine like crazy when you can mute the video and play motivational music!
My CrossFit Go-To right now:
Fitzala’s CrossFit workouts at home- I love this article because the routines are super easy to do and you can do them anywhere!
If you are looking for a great start-up routine, Check out Simply Sadie Jane’s Crossfit Series!
Cardio Go-To to mix things up when I am bored:
Estelle Archer’s Zumba Video- Ole Ola
Keira LaShea- Burn to the Beat Dance Intervals: African Cardio Dance Workout-
Favourite Ab Workout of Life!!
Tiffany Rothe- 10 Minute Booty Shaking Waist Workout- Lose inches off your waist ( TESTIFY! IT WORKS) I loved this video so much I shared it all of my girlfriends. I will never forget the first time I did it, I woke up the following morning sore! Did I mention it works!!!
Also, good old Russian Twists are everything!
I also try to throw in an outdoor jog whenever I can, one of my favorite places to do this is the Queens Park Savannah (which we proudly boast is the biggest in the world). Plug in some good music and/or company and just go!
Keeping it fun can always be a challenge, many times I stand up and say loudly "I don't want to do this" but then I buckle down and get it done, half-hearted sometimes- but at least it is done!
How do you keep active and stop your workouts from becoming boring? Let me know!

I remember when I was eighteen years old, I came home one day and I was told I would be going "home". From spending my days on the beach to pounding a pavement. It was one of the best things that could have ever happened to me.
It is funny how sometimes we are taught many things, but we don't follow up on them, whether it is out of fear, sheer laziness or insecurity.
As my journey continues, I decided to list things that I needed either to know, focus on, learn or believe in.
- You can always start over
- There is always a lesson
- Letting go is easiest when you rip it off like a band-aid
- You are beautiful
- You are smart
- Not every successful person is an academic
- You don’t need to know exactly what you want to be when you’re a teenager
- Never stop daydreaming
- What you repeatedly focus on will manifest
- Discipline is not easy, it takes commitment
- Life is only as difficult as you make it
- Don’t follow the crowd
- Stand up for yourself
- Look at what’s going on inside you when you feel negative emotion towards another person
- Don’t let your past control your future
- Always follow your instinct
- Travel alone at least once. Live in another country alone
- Follow your passion- it’s your calling.
- Mind your manners- you never know who may be watching you
- Don’t be afraid to leave people behind
- Live in the present moment mentally
- Say Goodbye
- Listen to your parents! Most times, they have been through it, or know the outcome per experience!

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Walk in faith, believe in yourself and understand. Those who judge are blinded by their own thoughts.
