Do It, Log It.

Fitness Log, $3.50 @ milas

My trainer always used to give me grief for not properly documenting my workouts. And while I know it's important to log what you do on a day-to-day basis so you can keep track of your progress (and ensure you're actually making some), I always had a perfectly good excuse – you know, no pencil, a hand cramp, the dog ate my log book...

Maybe I wouldn't have had to think up those pearlers if I'd had these super-cute sheets. Now they would have motivated me to bring a pen.

If Your Fridge Could Talk...

What would it say about what you eat? Well, you don't have to wonder anymore because LG has unveiled a new ThinQ refrigerator, complete with an inbuilt dietician that can scold you when you make an unhealthy choice.

You program in your BMI and weight-loss targets and it uses an in-built smart TV to suggest healthier meal options. At the risk of sounding like my grandma, whatever will they think of next?

Can You Hear That?

Lorna Jane
I feel like this outfit is talking to me. It's saying, "Go straight to Lorna Jane. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200."

Well, if you say so...

Look Out Tracy Anderson, There's A New Celebrity Trainer In Town.

Body By Simone

Her name is Simone de la Rue and here are a few reasons why you need to know about her...
  1. She's Aussie born. Don't you love her already?
  2. She's a classically trained dancer who's appeared on Broadway and The West End – but she did't leave those skills at the door. Her Body By Simone workouts incorporate ballet moves with yoga and pilates techique.
  3. You don't have to be a dancer. Matt Damon certainly isn't, but he loves Simone's program.
  4. You'll never get bored. "Like me, a lot of celebrities can be a bit ADHD when it comes to working out – they need to be stimulated," she tells The Daily Mail. "The body needs variety, too. You constantly need to trick your muscles by introducing different types of exercise, otherwise they become lazy and you stop seeing any definition.
  5. Still not impressed? Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock were. And if their bodies are any indication of what Simone can do, I'm sold.
