Beating the Monday blues and training with Victoria Pendleton

Guess what? Victoria Pendleton’s my new personal trainer! (In my dreams). Yesterday I attended Fitness First gym in honour of their brand re-launch, taking part in an exclusive spin class hosted by Olympic gold medallist, Victoria Pendleton.

Now apparently, statistics show that yesterday was the most depressing day of the year but there was no such sign of any Monday blues at the event (nonsensically named,
“Red Monday”). I’ve honestly never been so happy to jump out of bed at 6am! I was seated right next to Victoria so can now say that I literally trained with an Olympian. Oh. Yes.

Now obviously 40 minutes of continuous cycling caused quite a sweat but nevertheless, Victoria and I exchanged great words like “URGH! I’m shattered already” (admittedly
that was more me than her), we laughed together and we even celebrated with a sloppy high five at the end of the class. I’ve definitely got the wheels in motion for us to become
BFFs right?!


In all seriousness though, Victoria actually said I had (and I quote) “really good technique and consistent speed” so someone please get on the phone to Team GB because they have bagged themselves a new AJ-shaped recruit! Pass me a gold medal (for effort at least).

In other news, I can’t stop listening to Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz album. I was late to the twerk party but now that I’m here I don’t want to leave. I mean hello, Britney cameo! It’s
ace. To find out what else I’m listening to and what I’m wearing, check out my website

Welcome to my blog!

Hello my lovely readers!

I’m super excited to be launching my HELLO! Online blog and I hope you will enjoy reading about my fun and busy life…

The launch of CBB is a thing of the past and I am loving the cast. Les and Janice Battersby from my favourite soap Coronation Street are in, along with a guy I secretly had a crush on when I was younger, Dustin Diamond AKA Screech from Saved by the Bell. I think it was his curly hair that did it. Curls gets the girls! (Unfortunately Dustin now has a shaved head but I still can’t wait to see him in the house).



I like to call myself a fitness fanatic as I enjoy going to gym classes and leading an active lifestyle but with the launch of Celebrity Big Brother this week I’ve been rushed off my feet. As a result I’ve skipped the gym and done what I call, ‘The 100 Workout’ each morning. It consists of 40 jumping jacks followed by 30 crunches, 20 squats and then 10 push ups. That’s literally it. It takes less than 10 minutes and I read on @justenejaros Instagram that it burns 100 calories. Happy days!



My diet is also really important to me, but when I’m on the go all the time trying to eat healthy can be hard. My energy levels have to be high so I’ve been trying this lovely little detox called Nosh. It sounds funny but it’s great. They tailor make a diet plan for you and deliver it straight to your door each day ready to eat. And it’s delicious. Their fresh fruit smoothies are the best but their website shows the full range –

Here’s a quick cold pasta salad I love when I’m not on a detox: olives, tortellini, Parma ham, rocket and a drizzle of fresh lemon juice. Bung it all together and voila! You’ve got the perfect, healthy, quick dish. Anything for an easy life, eh?!





When I’m travelling around for events I always like to keep myself busy with either a good book or my favourite tunes on my iPod.
I’m currently reading Birdsong by Sebastian Folks. My boyfriend bought it me it yonks ago but I’ve only just got into it and so far so good. As he’s a primary school teacher, I’m hoping he gives me a gold star when I’ve completed it.

Hope you have all enjoyed a great bank holiday weekend – here’s to a great 4 day week and see you next week
