Guest Post: Going the Distance with Rocky & TruffleShuffle

As you know I’m a guest blogger on TruffleShuffle.co.uk and it is one of my favourite things about being a blogger. I have so much love for them!

Now the majority of their t-shirts excite me but when I heard they had some new Rocky t-shirts in, man I could not contain my excitement. I absolutely love the Rocky films having grown up watching them. Balboa is a total legend. Before I became a guest blogger for TruffleShuffle, I actually got in touch with them on Facebook asking them to get some Rocky tees in for ladies, a request which was heard. The tee was of the iconic ‘Italian Stallion’ logo and was given to me as a birthday present by our Steph 🙂

But one Rocky tee just wasn’t going to be enough for me…

The lovely guys at TruffleShuffle knew about my Balboa love and offered to send me the TWO (not one but two!) Rocky t-shirts. Have I told you how much I love them? I was grinning like a Cheshire cat for days! The tees have arrived at a perfect time as I’m currently on a health kick and have been taking inspiration from the Rocky films. Yes you heard right.

Rocky T-ShirtsI’m not very good at dieting (chips are my weakness) so the only way to lose some weight and tone up is to get my exercise on. However I have wasted so much money on gym memberships in the past as I become lazy and stop going. I know I know! This year I thought I’d do things differently. After watching Rocky 3 one night, I found myself grabbing my skipping rope and going for it. I found the motivation I needed, It was under my nose the whole time. Forget all those celebrity workout dvd’s and Zumba classes, I just needed to take notes from Mr Rocky Balboa.

Now I don’t have my own Mickey calling me a lousy bum and spurring me on so I went to the next best thing: my iPod. Armed with the Rocky soundtrack I have started my own fitness regime. Gone are the days of ‘Get Fit or Die Trying’ (our university regime), its all about ‘Going the Distance with Rocky Balboa’. And so far so good!

My new ladies Rocky tees are ace and can be worn not just for a work out but in the day. I wear mine all the time. The mens tshirts are just as good. I LOVE this Rocky Vs Clubber Lang t-shirt! It’s too cool. Tempted to get it for myself hehe.
