My 30 Day Strength Challenge

Hi everyone! If you watch my vlog you'll know I am training for a 5k in June and one of the problems I have encountered is shin splints *shudders*.

One of the ways to avoid this problem is to incorporate strength training into your weekly routine, so I have made a chart to stick in to my weight-loss diary which includes upper, core and lower body strength exercises - push ups, planks and squats (ouch, I'm hurting just thinking about it!)

Please feel free to use this chart and let me know how you find it. If you have trouble saving it to your computer then just leave me a comment and I can email it to you or something :-)

I am sure I'll be posting about it on my weight-loss Instagram account so follow me and I'll follow you back :-)

Make your own Weight-Loss Journal

My DIY weight-loss journal has it's kept me motivated in the last few weeks of my diet and exercise plan, so I'm sharing what I have in my journal to hopefully provide some inspiration so perhaps you can create your own!

Of course, every journal will be unique and I am sure once you get started you'll find your own useful pictures, quotes, charts and other motivators. There's lots of inspiration on Pinterest and even other vloggers make videos on theirs. Feel free to follow my Weight-Loss Diary Pinterest board for more ideas.

I hope you find this video helpful, and if you already keep a weight-loss diary then I'd love to share ideas! Please comment here or on my YouTube channel :-)
