When a new year starts, it’s always to make bold statement in the form of New Year’s resolutions, which if we’re honest with ourselves, we know we’ve set just so we can fail and beat ourselves up.

This year, rather than set resolutions I decided on a phrase or mantra of the year, by which to try and live – which will hopefully help me in more areas of my life.

So, in 2019 I am going to “stick with it”.

In an ideal world I would start a diet and be good every day, go the gym regularly, stop swearing and manage more than two days on Dry January. But, the reality is that life gets in the way and starting the year with flu really didn’t help.

It’s important when you do fall off the wagon so to speak, you don’t use it to beat yourself up with. Instead, stop, and get back on as soon as you can – just remember at least you were on the wagon in the first place!

While, I will be aiming to use my gym membership more in 2019 I now have no excuse with a range of additions to my fitness collection which give results even if you are short of time.

My favourite fitness and feel good tools of 2019

The Original WAVE Weighted Exercise Hoop - £18.03

I used to love hula hooping when I was younger and I had read about how beneficial it can be for toning up your waist and improving your core strength, so why not give it a try.

Because thee hoops are weighted they are a bit harder to get to grips with at first but the fact you really have to ease yourself in gently to avoid bruised hips certainly helps.

The fact you can make the hoops smaller, by removing sections, is also a huge advantage especially if you are doing it indoors and limited for space.

If used regularly you can burn up to 300 calories a day and it’s so simple you can do it while watching TV.

Powerspin Evo Arm, Tricep & Shoulder Workout - £21.99

No one wants flabby arms but they can be one of the hardest areas to tone, if you don’t want to do weights, that’s why the Powespin Evo is great.

The weighted steel ball inside the tubing generates a unique, natural force which combines with correct hand and arm movements, to deliver very precise, powerful exercises, exercises which are proven to tone and strengthen arms, shoulders, upper body and core.

Because I spend most of my day sat at a computer I have found it really helps me relax the muscles at the end of the day and shake off any stiffness.

You’ll feel a difference with as little as 6 minutes spinning per day, just 3 days a week.

Body Sculpture Massage Figure Twister - £10.82

If a lack of time is one of the biggest factors stopping you exercising then you’ll love the Massage Figure Twister because you can do it while you’re catching up on the news first thing in the morning or watching your favourite soap.

It’s so simple to use that anyone can do it and it will not only help you tone your waist but also your hips, bum and thighs. It also counts as a cardio workout and will help you burn calories too;

Proskins Classic Slim, Anti Cellulite Slimming Compression - £59.95

One of the best additions to my wardrobe was my first pair of ProSkins Slim leggings, because unlike many other fitness/slimming products they really do work!

Within a week of wearing them I noticed a big difference in both the size and texture of my thighs – which are not one of my best features.

I lost almost two inches off each thigh within 14 days and my dimples were hugely reduced. But, that’s not all, the fabric, which is infused with caffeine, retinol, ceramides, aloe vera and vitamin E really gives the skin a glow and leaves it feeling super smooth and soft.


Skinny Tan Tan & Tone Oil - £18

We all look better with a tan and at this time of the year it makes us feel better too. Skinny tan and oil not only gives you a gorgeous glow, it will  it also visibly reduce your cellulite too. 

No matter how hard I try I have never been very good at applying fake tan but as this is an oil, it goes on far easier than most and there really is  no streaking. It also barely smells either – which is a huge bonus.
