OOTD: Grey Oceans and Gym Chat

 Top - £4 - Primark, Skirt - £10 - Urban Outfitters (Sale),Glasses - Glasses Direct - 2 for £60 Bag - Holly Fulton for Scottish Fashion Awards - None of the money, Converse - Christmas from the boyshape, Bracelets - ebay and celiana
Not Pictured: Hoody and Massive Jacket. It's Glasgow. In January. Just saying.

I don't think there has ever been a time when I haven't felt like King of the Dicks getting my photo taken for outfit pictures (okay - ASKING people to take my outfit pictures, that's the time I feel the worst, with the actual "photo session" being a very very close second.) My sister was coaxed (blackmailed) in to taking my pictures today. She thought she was just through for a nice day of lunch and shopping. Nah. You're going to help me take wanky pictures on the landing because it will be funny.

Pretty much defaulting to black - with a tote bag filled with gym gear this was basically my way of weaning myself out of boots and trying to get myself out of my weird jean funk (going through a blarg of hating all my clothes and just throwing on jeans and over sized shirts, lazy dressing at it's finest folks.)  I love this skirt but really don't think it gets enough outings. For a few reasons. Mostly because when I wear it I fear I look massive and although I think I could fix this with a belt it just LOOKS WEIRD.  Also I think I've finally found a foundation that may in fact me too pale for me. Who'd have thunk it?

I've been back at the gym hard. Not that I ever went away but there was a blip of illness and mince pies in December but I like to gloss over that. This year I want to really push myself. Last year I managed my first 10k and did not die so would love to do it again this year before working myself up to a half marathon. I've been doing body pump for a while now and hoping this year will actually be able to stop being a dick and push myself more, especially with my arms and chest and they haven't really moved much. I was watching the video for Tough Mudder - which is like this insane 10-12 mile obstacle course that is held all over the world and it just looks...amazing. I mean utterly flat out crazy. The Scotland event is at the end of August so would be cool to maybe try work up to be able to do that. I mean who doesn't want to celebrate the end of Summer by running through fire, getting electrocuted and crawling through mud? 

Anyone else got any fitness goals for the year ahead?

  3. Love the skirt, really suits you and like it paired with the converse. Such a nice outfit. They do Body Pump at my gym so want to try it but thought it might be too hard...is it really difficult? One of my friends did Tough Mudder last year and really enjoyed it, even after getting electrocuted in the head! haha

    1. body pump is amazing. It's not easy but then it it's not hard it's not worth doing. It really is as hard as you make it but it truly has improved my fitness and changed the way I feel about my body. DO IT x

  4. My trainer did Tough Mudder last year (and doing it this year). He said the mud was up to his waist at some points and that you get electrocuted at points too (all be it mildly)....this is not my idea of fun.


    In other news, I do enjoy this outfit...esp in the last photo.

    2. Yep. It's apparently like those machines that you get in fun fairs where you try keep hold of the metal rods for as long as you can. So not 'actual' electrocution...
      If you do it I'll come to cheer you on.....I'll be the loudest one there...

  7. I completed my first half marathon last year :s and was slightly ill for a few days after due to lack of training. My goal this year is to do it again and not make myself ill ha! xx

    1. I was not too bad after my 10k and after felt I could have completed it faster. Would be great if I could get my time to under an hour this year! x

    1. I think the boy is considering buying me a tripod so he doesn't have to do this any more. Had the skirt for ages but mind buying it being like £10? TAKE MY MONEY x
