vegan protein powder

I have to admit something… I’m really not that fit.

I have so much respect for anyone who exercises around work because I find the whole life admin of it seriously stressful.

The packing your spare clothes, bringing your make-up bag in, waking up earlier or rushing after work to get to class on time, I’m sleepy just thinking of it.

But, I also have a mind that works a mile a minute and while my mental workouts are exhaustive, my physical exertion day-to-day mainly revolves around running for the bus or power-walking past the crowds in central London.

Oh, and I also live on the fourth floor of a flat without a lift so that counts too right?

And, I do really like to hike – I just need to allocate myself time and planning to do them.

Armed with that “new year, new me” feeling, I decided to embark on some exercise classes (kettlebells, dance and boxing) and you know what? The endorphins and even the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) felt great.

Am I going to keep up the classes? I’m going to try by being more organised and having my gym bag on call with products I have tried, tested and love.
