Gym Girl Wednesday

iStock_000002300898XSmall Guess what? In order to keep up this fit-girl malarky that I've now found myself actually enjoying - I know, right?! - I'm going to train to run the Bupa 5k in October. Yep, you read that right, RUN. I may have now released 4 stonage, but I've still got plenty o' junk in the trunk and figured that actually training for an event will keep me focused and inspired...The beau is doing it with me, and we start our training programme this afternoon - parp!


First things first, a girl is going to need a cute ensemble, right? I LOVE that website offer a super-stylish range of gym/fitness clothing for plus sized girls. I also think I am going to NEED these pink Puma running trainers too. Cute AND functional. My kind o' footwear. £58.00 -

Next, a girl needs a kick-ass running playlist, obv. I've just put mine together for this evening's torture, I mean training, and it goes a li'l something like this: Hey Ya! - OutKast - LOVE this. Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) - C+C Music Factory. Sweat baby, sweat! Lose my Breath - Destiny’s Child. Take it up a step, g-friend! I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas. I've got a feeling this will DEFFO be worth the hard work. Stronger - Kayne West. Do it, do it, do it! Wind it Up - Gwen Stefani. Oh Gwen, PLEASE let me have abs like you! Push It - Salt-N-Pepa. No SASSY workout playlist would be complete without Salt N pepa. Fact. Let’s Get Loud - J.Lo. So good. The Power - Snap! You've got the power. Tik Tok - Ke$ha: You heard her, don’t stop. Dirty - Christina Aguilera. Get down and dirty, or just a li'l bit sweaty. Your call. Don’t Stop Believing - Journey. Like this song wasn’t going to make my list?!! Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-A-Lot. Walking on Sunshine - Katrina & the Waves. We all need a bit o' cheese, non? Good Vibrations - Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Okay, this may be pushing the cheese a li'l too far, but I LOVE it!

What? Now I've actually got to go out and run? But it's raining and everything. This fitness lark is HARD work! I would LOVE for you to share your work-out playlists oh, and any tips you might have for me to become a lean, mean running machine would be mucho appreciated!
