Let's get Chic and Physical...

I introduce you to my bikini body inspiration - Jessica and Miranda (I hate you but love you!) When you open the fridge and reach for that icy cold bottle of Marlborough perched before your eyes, when you reach for that bag of giant chocolate buttons at the check out or go to press the stop button on the treadmill...think again...just envisage these two beach goddesses and do the right thing!!!!! 

I have officially turned over a new leaf and I'm on a summer time bikini body mission, no more lazy evenings crying my eyes out in front of Private Practice (my new series obsession, if you don't know about it get involved!!), no more nights where another bottle of wine seems like a good idea or piling those carbs high on my dinner plate...O NOOO I am now a serious gym goer, salad cruncher and slim line tonic girl!!! I'm not going crazy militant and depriving myself of everything naughty, a summer wouldn't be a summer without a chilled G&T or Pimms in the sun (and you do also get your 5 a day with a jug of Pimms, so cutting that out would just be silly!!) but I am making a concerted effort to make myself one toned piece of mouse muscle!!!

It even took over my bank holiday weekend instagram feed...

 
Although a day later this picture followed...

 
However, to get myself fully prepped and in the mood, there are a few essentials I need in my gym satchel...a bottle of ice cold water, a pair of boxing gloves, an upbeat inspirational iPod play list (see my post last year here that I still actually listen to) and finally chic gym get up. No one wants to look any more unattractive than they already have to in the gym...bright red, sweaty, out of breath and all with the day's make-up half way down your face...so I feel some hot gym wear doesn't hurt anyone! 
 
Kick start that gym bug inside you and look chic whilst you do it...that's our plan anyway! See our top picks below...
