Getting Fit: The Expectation VS. The Reality

Reality: Hating yourself a little bit every time you put on the sports bra that’s too small and the see-through leggings with holes in that make your legs look a bit like sausages exploding out of a string bag.

Reality: Being too late and grabbing a sugary coffee for breakfast as you run to the bus stop.

It’s easy to see all the killer abs on your Instagram feeds and suddenly feel a rush of motivation to turn your life around and become a fitness pro. A month in and you’ll basically be Victoria’s Secret model…right?

WRONG, because when it actually comes to getting up off your bum and doing something about it, you *might* find out that working out IRL isn’t quite as fun you’d envisioned.

Watch! How to get a bum like Kylie Jenner with James Tindale…

And – spoiler – we say this as someone who has also done just that.

Here’s what to expect on your quest to get the body of your wildest ~*dreams*~.

Reality: Snoozing your alarm 17 times until you’re 1000% going to be late for school/work/your whole entire life.

Reality: Hating yourself a little bit every time you put on the sports bra that’s too small and the see-through leggings with holes in that make your legs look a bit like sausages exploding out of a string bag.

Reality: Being too late and grabbing a sugary coffee for breakfast as you run to the bus stop.

Reality: Being too hungover to move and ordering McDonald’s delivery twice in one day.

Reality: Forgetting to drink anything until 2pm, then trying to glug a whole litre in the space of 10 seconds and feeling sick and bloated for the rest of the afternoon.

Reality: Is everyone on the entire planet at this gym right now?

Reality: Somehow finding yourself boiling the kettle and eating a chicken and mushroom pot noodle.

Reality: Feeling like a human jelly after one session and you can barely sit down or walk up stairs for the rest of the week.

Reality: Eating four packets of crisps in a row while binge-watching Stranger Things. Oops.

Reality: Looking like some sort of sweaty tomato only five minutes into the warmup.

Reality: Having to ask for help to use the treadmill. Where are the brakes on this thing?!

Reality: Running out of battery halfway through a Little Mix banger and then giving up and going home.

Reality: Gagging every time you even smell it. Definitely shouldn’t have gone for the Turkish delight flavour…

Reality: Wondering if your food baby is an actual baby because it seems to be growing by the minute.

Reality: Literally jumping into your mate’s arms when they suggest getting a Chinese takeaway tonight.

Reality: ‘Accidentally’ eating a big bar of Dairy Milk and six chocolate digestives. You needed something to dip in your cup of tea, okay?

Reality: Still not really understanding what HIIT even is and constantly forgetting which machine does what.

Reality: Did someone say Tequila?
