You know when you make the big mistake of going on the scales and end up jumping off quicker than the speed of light. That happened the other week and I'll be honest I was shocked at what the scales said. So out with the junk and in with the healthy eating and exercise. You will probably know by now that in order to get me into the gym I like to wear offensive printed trainers - the brighter the better. If it motivates me to exercise it's a winner in my books.

Instead of wasting money this month, I've decided to buy some new gym clothes - first up is leggings. Normally I wear Adidas leggings however I've just realised that both Nike and H+M do random printed leggings. I don't think I have the guts to wear the pair on the right, however I am really tempted to buy these snazzy tyre mark type leggings by Nike on the left. As I'm going to start running again with Jill, I need some sort of waterproof jacket and this H+M number comes in different colours (at the moment I'm verging towards the pink).

Finally you know I can't do a wishlist post without mentioning some snazzy trainers and yet again these Free Runs and Roche Runs from Nike are ticking all the boxes for me. I don't know if it's just me but the pink Free Runs print reminds me of Missoni - I think I may have to get them purely for that reason. What are your gym essentials?

I feel like I should come clean... I may be eating a small bar of chocolate as I type this...
