Happy & Healthy {five}

Time for this months instalment of Happy & Healthy! 

FINDING THE TIME - This is my main problem at the moment, I'm just so busy. With it being exam time in my second year of university, the load is pretty heavy and I'm struggling to keep up the blog and youtube routine and finding the time to work out. Every time I sit down to write a blog post or get ready for the gym, I feel like I should stay at home and write another chunk of my essay instead. Also it's way too easy to sit and pig out when you're stressing about the cultural relevance of an album pre 1970 (Yes, that's my life right now). That aside, I've been going to the gym at least once a week for the past few weeks and I'm planning to cane it during June when university has finished and I'm still in Brighton! Look out for a 'top tips on being busy' blog post next week

MUSIC TO MOTIVATE - I'm currently obsessed with Kygo. His remixes transport me to a hot, sandy beach, sipping a cocktail, eating fresh fruit, wearing a neon bikini and some duo-chorme shades (it's a very detailed images going on here...) and it keeps me so motivated. Some of my favourites are I See Fire, Sexual Healing and No Diggity, check them out of YouTube, it'll either get you up and going or can be mega relaxing too. 

GMYSPO - Lydia Elise Millen! Not only does she have the most to die for blog, she has one hot bod and she works very hard to maintain that. Her instagram snaps in her bedroom mirror are enough to get me in the gym, let alone her motivational posts with photos, tips and tricks. Have a snoop on her blog here.

SMOOTHIE - As the sun has started making more of an appearance I've got back into making smoothies for breakfast. I've been dreaming about the one I made this morning all day, Mango & Strawberry - recipe will be in a blog post!

CROSS TRAINER - I've never been a runner. I just can't break through 'the wall' to keep going and it's actually recommended that people with hyper-mobility do less 'high impact' sports to reduce strain. I wanted to shake things up a bit, so I tried out the Cross Trainer and i love it! I can do it for a long time, I can really feel it working, it gets my heart rate going and I don't feel any strain in my silly bendy joints!

What's getting you motivated to work out?
