I was slipping and sliding about on the way to the park for my daily dogwalk and knew there was no way I was going to do my normal brisk walk to the gym to catch the 9.30 class. So, did I just forget it and give in to my desire for the sofa and biscuits before starting work at my desk? Nope (oh, believe me, I was soooo tempted!) But instead I turned to my old pal, Google, typed in Get Fit At Home and voila! I came across fitness expert Lucy Wyndham-Read…
Now, I’m pretty good at talking the talk – “yay, let’s all get fit and feel healthy and strong as we get old, instead of being saggy old, procrastinating bags that can’t be arsed!” But in reality, I do often share more of the saggy procrastinating old bag vibe than strong, fit and healthy! Although, since January and starting my Mel Robbins #MindSetReset, I’ve definitely upped my game! You can read more about how in my last post linked here.
Back to Lucy Wyndham-Read…she is an amazingly clever 48 year old fitness expert who has tapped into the fact that many of us don’t want to slog it out at the gym every day or get involved in really hard, long-winded workout schedules. Some of us do – and I salute you! But…most of us don’t. Generally, we are a nation of quick-fixers aren’t we? Combine that with the power to procrastinate being many a 50 plus year old woman’s number one super-power, then short, simple, non-complicated fitness workouts that get results (judging by Lucy’s gazillions of followers on YouTube and Instagram and other social profiles, they really do) and the fact that they can be done at home – at any time – then you’re on to a winning formula. Lucy is also extremely knowledgable about all aspects of wellbeing from fitness to nutrition to positive self-confidence and health. She has written many books on these subjects, appeared in women’s magazines and has also been interviewed on Sky News, BBC 1, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
I’ve just started doing her at home workout which I’m going to incorporate with my gym sessions and fitness classes (when it’s warm enough to get to the gym!) but I just wanted to let you know that if you want to get fit and shape up – or simply just start doing some activity that makes you feel good – and exercise really, really does (it’s medically proven!) Then, Lucy might be the woman you need to know about!
Check out Lucy’s YouTube Channel and link to her website below and let me know if you give the workouts a go! I’d love to think I’ve helped point you in the right direction to give you a gentle shove out of being Procrastinating Polly and into Fitspiration Fiona territory! 🙂
UPDATE: I’ve decided to try Lucy’s Menopause Weight loss and Health Bundle – so I’ll be reporting back on my progress!
