Welcome back my lovely people!
Soo as you know from my New Year; New? post I am all about fitness this year! I kinda always have been keen on fitness and exercise. I go stir crazy if I’ve been shut in all day haha I just have to do some form of exercise… for my own peace of mind. Obviously I know its not all about exercise you have to eat right as well… which I’m doing… to an extent… do not fear!!
Dan & I decided that 2017 is the year we’re going to get actually fit. I don’t really know why Dan’s doing it because he’s fit already… plays football like 3 times a week and has a super physical job – & he can do press ups already… my goal in life is to be able to do a proper press up!!
I have written down a load of work outs focused on different areas of my body – I got these from various personal trainer/youtubers! So our plan/routine atm is 20-30 mins cardio and then whatever our workouts are x3, so we basically repeat everything 3 times. The 20-30 mins cardio I tend to do on the treadmill as interval training, so 2 mins high speed running and 2 mins medium – fast walking and so on!
So far I’m loving it, my daily routine is, Mon & Tues gym after work, Wed I usually do some yoga in the morning, Thurs Netball, Fri nothing, Sat & Sun gym. Which I am 100% trying to stick too… I think the only struggle will be Saturday mornings.. because I usually just go home to Mum and Dads!
Dan & I have also been doing the Ab challenge and another challenge that he found on fb which basically involves; plank, squats, crunches, jacknife crunches, press ups… which increase in length/amount as the month goes on. My body has stopped aching everyday now – which I believe is a good thing, but when I’m whacking out 50+ sit ups… I deffo feel the pain then!!
All in all, I am feeling really refreshed and ready for this fitness boost. I’ve probably been saying for the past 10 year ‘I just want to be fit’ & this year I really want to achieve that!
Thanks for reading! Let me know what you do to stay fit.
