Getting fit is probably one of the most common New Year’s resolutions that people make every year. Although 2016 was one of my fittest years ever — I ran several 10K races and the Brussels 20K — motivation can be a tricky one for me, because a) I rather want to hang out with my boyfriend/friends b) it’s too cold/windy/rainy/hot outside c) sitting at a desk all day makes me even more lazy.
Nonetheless, I want to kick it up a notch in 2017. Why? Because me and my big mouth — what else? My BFF and partner-in-crime Shanna and I told everyone we’re running the Reykjavik Marathon in August 2017. Yup, got that right.
To not give in to bad excuses, I’ve started with step one: an Apple Watch. Because to me, being active every single day is the secret to being fit. And of course, because looking fab makes you feel fab: some new gym clothes. I recently discovered the Doutzen’s Sports Stories by Hunkemöller and the collection is simply A-MA-ZING! Glossy leggings, fishnet tops, sexy sports bras and accessories to match — need I say more?
Since a marathon not only takes fitness but also strength, I decided to join Kayla Itsines’s 12 week bikini body guide with the new sweat app. Personal trainer and Instagram celeb Kayla helps over 10 million women to get healthier, fitter and more confident with her workouts and recipes.
