We Need To Stop Bashing Each Other.

*I must state this has not happened to me personally, but I keep seeing it happen and it's starting to rub me the wrong way*

Leave people alone!

I'd like to say I am active on social media, especially my Instagram more so than anything else and I post frequent/daily posts, food posts, motivational pictures and sweaty post workout selfies and thankfully I haven't come across as much hate as some other people who I follow, who are on similar journeys and who are amazing, and I've began to notice that a lot of the time it's other fitness/weightloss people who are throwing the same shit as the people who throw it but are sitting on their asses. So naturally I am confused by this, I thought everyone was in it together, I thought I'd see encouragement and praise and a lot of the time I do but about 5% of the time I'm seeing hate and it's really starting to piss me off. (excuse my French) 

If you LIFT, who are YOU to tell someone who doesn't, they're not going to achieve their goal?

If you do solely CARDIO, who are YOU to tell someone who lifts, 'ah you're never going to lose weight, you'll just bulk up and look like a man'


Unless you are someones doctor, nutritionist or mother, you have no right in your little self to give advice, or tell someone they're not doing something right, just because it's not what you're doing. 

and one more small thing

There are some big women out there who are spreading the body positive message in saying, no matter what size you are, you are beautiful and I TOTALLY SUPPORT that message, but please don't come to me and tell me it's a shame I AM not embracing my body as it is.

Let me just say one thing, my body is mine and at this moment of time it is the heaviest it has EVER been in my whole entire 25 years of existence and I DON'T accept this weight. I accepted that this was where my body went at this certain time but I will not accept that this is where my body will always be in the future. So don't tell me it's a shame, don't shame me for not accepting my body how it is now, that's my problem one I'm tackling.

I feel like weightloss and fitness is seen as a religion to some people and some people like to thrust their way on to others, well guess what, it's not religion it's a lifestyle choice and change and if I'm happy if anyone is happy with how they're doing it. LEAVE THEM ALONE.

As always peace and love. X

My Playlists for Anytime and Everywhere.

Now we all have those songs that fit any occasion, right? it's not just me. I'm pro list, I love a list, making them makes me happy. I'm weird don't judge. Haha. One of my favourite lists to make are playlists and currently I have 4 playlists in my life and they are titled as such.

Songs To Sweat To

Bath Tunes

Driving Music 


They are not very creative, I my lack in creating titles for things, but that stops at creating titles. So I have my workout playlist, my bath playlist, music you need to be listening to whilst in the car and my running music. Workout and running to me are two totally different things so both need different music.

I thought it would be fun to share with you guys my top 5 favourite songs from each playlist with a little why to why they are there. 

Songs To Sweat To

Labrinth - Earthquake ft. Tinie Tempah 

Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk 
 Now tell me how this song wouldn't get you pumped up to push yourself a little more.

Ariana Grande - Into You
My workout playlist wouldn't be right without this lady, also I seem to start clicking my fingers and start to dance between reps listening to this song.

Flo-Rida - Club Can't Handle Me
Well just because....

Imagine Dragons ft. Wiz Khalifa, Lil' Wayne and more
This song comes on during those last moments of my workout where my legs and arms are starting to shake, when the sweat is falling off me when I want to quit, this song comes on and I think yes I can do this, the pain is nothing. COME AT ME! That's the mentality this song gives me.

Bath Tunes

Now don't laugh but my bathroom has great acoustics fit for one musician, the one and only Celine Dion, now you didn't see that coming, but listening to this goddess whilst soaking my troubles away is the best thing ever and the five songs that are my favourite are.

It's All Coming Back To Me Now

My Heart Will Go On

Taking Chance

Tell Him w/ Barbra Streisand

Because You Loved Me

You can judge me now if you want, I'll understand. Haha.

Driving Music

This playlist only continues great music you can sing a long to loudly in the car, act like a gangsta in your car and really rock out in the car.

Bon Jovi - Living On A Prayer

Evanescence - Bring Me To Life

R. Kelly - Ignition
If I'm on a long driving journey this song would be missed if not played.

Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
You can't be in a car without this being played.

Usher - Yeah
You know the Ludacris part is designated to the one in the passenger seat. que ME.


I have a few songs for this playlist that I believe should be on every running playlist.

Darude - Sandstorm
I believe if this isn't on your running playlist then YOU ARE NOT RUNNING.

N-Trance - Set You Free

Jonas Blue - Perfect Strangers

The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk - I Feel It Coming
I honestly feel like I'm about to bust a move when this song comes on mid run. Haha.

Christina Aguilera - Dirty
This song also makes me want to bust a move or two when I hear coming through my headphones.

There they are, my top five favourite songs from each one of my playlists. I love music and it is a huge part of my life, I couldn't imagine life without music.
Do you have some favourite songs from your playlists that you look forward to hearing when you hit that shuffle button? Let me know in the comments below?
