Welcome to a blog that's been in the making since the start of the year.
Way back in Jan I made the decision to look for something fitness related that I would stick too. I never in a million years dreamt that I would find something I loved from the first lesson and and am now going to twice a week.
I came across an advert on Facebook for Jump Fit classes being held at my local trampoline park here in Enfield and went along to try the class out. I've always backed away from anything I found intimidating especially when it's come to fitness but found soon into the class that I was really enjoying it and bought a pass for more classes at the end.
Everyone I've met from these classes has been so welcoming. We all work together to help each other and each class is always a great laugh as well.
I stayed with the Tuesday Jump Fit classes which have been great for building up my fitness again each week I try and push a bit harder. This class was great to start off being low impact it is for all levels of fitness. For the first few weeks after the aches and complaints from my body I thought this would have put me off but it didn't and during April I decided to give Bounce Box a go on a Thursday.
Bounce Box was a completely different level to try and its been great to have a variation of the classes. I've found myself booking a few weeks in advance to make sure I stick to this.
On a personal level I've had a lot of things thrown at me and have come to look at these classes as more than just fitness as they have really helped me get out of my head when I've needed to.
I got back from holiday this week and despite everything that could have been thrown at me in the 48 hours I was back I did question if an early night was the best thing but made myself go to Bounce Box and actually felt so much better after.
It takes a lot to find something you enjoy and actually want to stick to especially when it comes to fitness. I have to say a massive thank you to Akilé and also Vicky for helping us push that little bit further each week. Its great when you see the results, if you haven't checked it out pop over to Jump In Enfield and book in for a session I promise you it's totally worth it.
Also check out the rest of what the Fitness Vibe team have on offer over on the Fitness Vibe Website .
Thanks for reading, what have you been up to fitness wise this year drop a comment below.
Have a great week

Welcome to an exciting part of the Tenerife travel blogs. Despite the weather yesterday we had an incredible afternoon out on the Maxicat boats watching the Dolphins and whales.
We were picked up from the resort and taken down to the harbour where we boarded our boat for the afternoon. We’d chosen the 3 hour trip but there is also a 5 hour trip available as well.
After Sailing for a while we were very lucky to get our first look at I’d say a good 12 dolphins swimming very close to the boat.
Very soon after we came across a small pod of whales. It was so incredible to be able to see them so close up and see so many of them. You always hope you’ll see these incredible animals up close on the boats and this was totally worth a day trip to do.
Even though it was chilly yesterday I have to give credit to all those who swam from the boat when we stopped later in the trip. It didn’t look warm at all.
I would completely recommend booking on the MaxiCat all the staff were lovely and the food provided during the trip were also very good.
There are many places to buy tickets around the resorts and out and about.
They do take official pictures when you board the boat which can be purchased as well.
This was a lot of fun and will definitely book again when I come back over.
Thanks for reading

So for todays blog I thought I'd do a bit of a throwback to the Moon Walk 2013 in London.
With the Moon Walk happening this weekend in London I firstly have to wish every single person taking part a massive good luck. I also send my support to everyone working behind the scenes as the network of helpers at the start/finish of the route and also out along the route is something beyond incredible.
I will never forget making it to the finish line but seeing all the helpers waiting with medals, applause and the biggest hugs was just amazing.
This is the time before the walk where mental preparation was needed. We had a team get together the night before and then after a very quiet day before the walk got together to head to the start. We were not ready for the massive down pour as we were signing but it didn't stop the fun.
After the warm ups it was time for our team and group to set off. Seeing everyone sticking together and looking after each other made such a lovely atmosphere and it was great to be a part of.
Even my feet will argue towards the end we were convinced the mile marker between 25 and 26 was longer but I was so determined to make it to the finish line.
The memory of seeing someone so tired she sat by mile 26 wanting to give up but seeing the helpers come down to help her along the last stretch was so overwhelming.
There is a huge sense of teamwork when doing this walk and I have so much respect for anyone who takes part you are all incredible.
If you have friends or family taking part don't forget to check in with them along the route as trust me even just a text or a quick call will spur people on so much.

Welcome to a shoe shopping themed blog featuring Schuh.
If you know me well you know out of all things shopping related I hate shoe shopping. It's got better as time has gone but finding size 8 shoes in female designs drives me nuts. Also baffles me why if they don't have it in female sizes the alternate in mens is more money for the same shoe.
This is where I actually love Schuh
Not only do they have a bigger variety of female sizes both online and in store but they've sourced my size online for me and sent it to my nearest store for pick up a few hours later.
I've been on the hunt for a plain white pair of Adidas trainers for a while. I normally wear Superstars but have had my eye on these Tubular trainers since they first came out.
Whilst out at the weekend I wanted to try the shoes in store but couldn't find any so after looking online and finding them in the sale it was a no brainer not to order them.
I have to give Schuh online complete credit for how easy it was to order, I really find it a lot easier when shops give you the Paypal option pay with online if you are ordering off your phone and don't want to get your bank card out if you are out and about.
The delivery system was also flawless. I ordered late evening on the Sunday which was dealt with on Monday, dispatched on the Tuesday which was then delivered this afternoon on the Wednesday. Plus points for Parcel force also for the delivery and how easy it was to let them know to deliver to a neighbour if no one was in.
The shoes are so comfy and I can't wait to take them on holiday in a couple of weeks.
Schuh completely win with sending me a voucher straight after to spend on more shoes which I will be happy to do so.
If you want a really easy online shopping experience I can't recommend Schuh enough to try.
