How We Stay Motivated & Active

This time last year we posted a New Year, New You blog post wearing Zakti Activewear along with our resolutions for the year. This year as our first post of 2018 we have decided not to make resolutions but focus on living a happy, healthy life while trying to find the best balance we can.

Finding enough {or even some} ‘you’ time when you are busy business running mums is pretty tough but both of us strive each week to take a few hours out to do what keeps us slightly sane in our hectic lives and that’s to exercise. We have 3 rules we to try live by to get motivated and find that ‘you’ time so if you want some encouragement to get your sweat on, read on.

No training, no gainin’!

Get kitted out.

If you look good you feel good. You’ve probably seen that quote on Pinterest a zillion times but actually when it comes to exercise we believe it’s true. A great kit really can boost your confidence and up your productivity in the gym. FACT. {in the world according to Belle & Bunty} A favourite activewear brand of ours is Zakti. They are our go to for great gym pieces that combine cute design details, great colour combinations & prints and flattering fits without looking ‘too much’ {bum showing sheer leggings we are talking about you} We love how you can combine the colourful styles in with your everyday wardrobe so that pre~workout coffee doesn’t hinder your sartorial credentials. The good quality pieces survive the multiple washing machine spins to hold their shape too and the price point is v v reasonable.

We also have a cheeky discount code for you lot below! 

Find something you love.

You’ve probably also heard that a million times but it really is true. Hannah has been a long term gym bunny and loves the challenge that weight training provides while Alice takes weekly trapeze classes as a fun and different way to stay fit. Both of us love the way we choose to stay in shape.

So try something new, experiment until you find something that just ‘clicks’. If you don’t have a gym membership or a class nearby try an app that you can do at home be it high interntsity or something more holistic. You do You.

We use Chloe Madeley’s 15 Minute Fat Loss app for a quick intense burst of exercise at home, plus she’s recently released a brand new book we’ve just got our hands on too! Exercise shouldn’t be tedious, it can be fun {we promise}!

Strike a balance.

Perhaps it’s being mothers, perhaps it’s being in your 30s, but both of us like to indulge now and again alongside staying fit. Gone are the days of restrictive diets and overdoing the exercise, nowadays we prefer a balance of doing something that keeps your body happy but are also good for the soul. Like enjoying a delicious slice of cake and coffee with friends or a glass of wine {or 2} while relaxing after a manic day. Striking a balance also helps you stay on the right track most of the time as you don’t feel like you are ever being deprived. Remember one bad day of eating won’t make you unhealthy just like one good day of eating won’t make a difference.

We visited a brand new London coffeeshop to add to your Instagrammable coffeeshop list to shoot these pictures before a yoga class to show how seamlessly you can style the pieces into a casual look.  Elan is super pretty with its pink & white tiled floor, full flower wall inside and there’s even pink stripe raspberry croissants when you deserve a little treat and need an Instagram shot. See ~ its all about balance!

Happy {and healthy} New Year from us!
