Hey guys, you wouldn’t guess what?? Your girl has Covid19 and I have been battling it for nearly two weeks. The worst thing about this was the fact that prior to becoming unwell, I had just successfully ventured back into my morning exercise and was really ready to begin toning up and sculpting my body. (Because summer bodies are made in the Autumn/Winter period!) So you can imagine; I am feeling pretty crappy that I haven’t been able to get up and exercise for quite a while now. What’s worse; and believe me, it can get much worse. As I type this, I am feeling woozy and like death. I am fighting back hard and am so desperate to just go to sleep for the 100th time today because the only time I feel okay is when I am laying down and falling asleep. I am also gutted that I am back to work tomorrow; because as much as my bosses have been AMAZING to me. I still don’t feel able to work. Though, until I am married off and have a husband to help manage my load; it’s back out to work I go.
However, nothing was going to stop me from posting this blog as I am totally obsessed with fitness again; watching endless YouTube videos and plotting out my return. For those of you who are well and are not battling any nasty viruses, I want to encourage you to step into your fitness regime if you haven’t yet started. You don’t have to do too much to make a massive difference to not only your health but your overall mood.
Just 30 minutes of exercise a day is enough to improve your health and overall physical appearance drastically. If you are lacking in motivation and in need of some inspiration to get started on your summer body whether you’re working out at home, in the gym or in the park alone, or with a friend, here are 8 reasons that will help to get you moving and keep you moving..

3 Mood Improver: A natural high! Every time you exercise your body will release endorphins that help to make you feel good.
