The most important thing when planning to workout is making sure that you have a comfortable and supportive pair of trainers. I often see people running in flat shoes, such as converses, but these are actually really bad for your posture and are definitely just meant to be "fashion" trainers. Choose trainers which have a well-structured shape, and if you're not sure then just ask the shop assistant.
It's pretty chilly in London at the moment, and I can't afford a gym pass, so I workout outside - this jacket would be perfect to keep me warm! I like the bright pink toggles and the metallic colour of this jacket - I may just have to take a trip to H&M!
10k run tight
I like to workout in leggings rather than baggy pants, I'm not quite sure why, I just find them more comfortable! I like to wear black ones as black is more slimming, and these ones are super cute with the fluro pink stripe down the side.

If I do manage to save up for a gym pass I'll need a new gym bag, and this one from American Apparel would do perfectly! Again I love the metallic material used for this bag, it's fun and chic, but not expensive - which is ideal for a bag that I'd be leaving in a gym locker for long periods of time.
sweet tee 2.0
The t-shirt would be great to workout in. I like the deep purple colour, and the stripes make it a less obvious workout tee. Also because it's dark it'll hide any sweat patches!
THE WATER BOTTLE
large sb water bottle
When taking part in any exercise it's vital that you stay hydrated. It'll improve your performance, but it'll also prevent you from feeling dizzy or weak during or after exercise. So why not hold your fluids in this cute pink water bottle from Sweaty Betty?
purple ipod shuffle
At the beginning of this post I spoke about motivation, and what better way to motivate yourself than listening to some upbeat tunes? When I listen to music I definitely feel like the workout goes more quickly. I got this iPod shuffle for Christmas from my pops (with Lucy Victoria engraved on the back) and I've used it loads already! It's discreet and clips onto your clothing easily, and because it's not too expensive I don't feel nervous about taking it running with me.

I know this tune has been out for a few months, but I just love listening to it when I workout - it's upbeat (especially at the beginning) and really gets me in the mood to run!
I hope I have helped you gather some motivation to get out there and do some exercise. Even if you start with just walking it's really important to just get moving! As you'll probably know exercise release endorphins and endorphins make you happy! If you don't believe me, why not try it?
