I vow to get fit in 2012 so I can WOW in The Davina for Next Collection!

I was just a little excited to read about Davina McCall launching a new fitness range with Next. I'm a great fan of Davina, there is something about her that makes you instantly feel you could take her for a coffee and tell her about the disaster you had while out shopping when your 3 year old decided to open the changing room curtain to the world..Yes..that was my bottom exposed to the entire shop as I tried desperately to wriggle into a pair of size 14 trousers which were not going beyond my knees.

After having two children, I have to confess I've really forgotten what real exercise is all about unless you can count chasing behind rampaging toddlers? Once upon a time I was a fitness fanatic and I used to love the adrenaline high I'd feel after a good run. I'm determined that 2012 will be my year to not only battle the bulge but also rid myself of wibbly wobbly bits once and for all, I want to prove to myself that I have got the discipline - and organisational ability - to get up each morning bursting with energy and with the knowledge that when I get married (hopefully at the start of 2013) I will look and feel spectacular!

I love the look of the trainers, they look trendy while offer the latest technology to support your joints while you work out, something I'd love to try out while I'm out running over the next few months!


I'm sure I've mentioned before that I'm quite tall, and I have to be honest and say that most sportswear bottoms which are flattering to my curves are a little to low and reveal rather too much when I'm exercising, I like the look of these:

They look slightly higher waisted, and with a flattering trim to fool you all into thinking that I do actually have slim thighs..In seriousness, I think they'd look great and can't wait to venture into Next to locate a pair! I wonder if they'll do that bulgy knees thing after I've done a session on a cross trainer? I'd love the chance to try these out, and would definitely be giving them rigorous testing should I get the opportunity!

I always struggle to find pretty post gym shoes, but Davina at Next even covers that with these pretty pumps:


How cute are they? I have to confess I think I'd wear them all the time!! Certainly an incentive to get out and show them off! They also contain clever technology which helps reduce stress on your joints - so not just a pretty pair of shoes!
