Happy Monday folks.
So I’ve not posted much lately and still trying to get back into the swing of things since being ill. You may have read in last weeks Jelly Belly To Yummy Mummy post that I wanted to change my approach to my health and fitness, and that I wanted to mix things up. Well since my last post I only managed to fit in 1 other work out to the Zumba I did last Sunday. I decided that I would do some Body weight and kettlebell strength training and to be honest I forgot how much I enjoyed it and how much I liked the felling of sore achy muscles afterwards. I had done that on Friday and had planned to work out again on saturday and yesterday but a weekend full of jobs and visiting People and a lovely 1st birthday party of one of Logan’s friends meant that I didn’t get round to working out at all. It’s not ideal but I’m not massively worried because I have been more active in general this week with a couple of trips up town shopping etc.
Couple of lovely sweaty images of me mid Crunches and post work out.
I do want to improve on it this week though. Hence why I doing this post this morning so that I can work out when I get home from work tonight. I’ve noticed that since I have changed my approach and way of thinking toward my health and fitness, I have a new kind of Motivation. I feel more willing to work out. It’s like since I have removed the whole “I’ve got to lose x amount of weight this week” a weight has been lifted of my shoulders. I’ve not weighed myself in so long. I just want to be fit and healthy and if the weight comes off great, if it doesn’t then that’s fine too.
I’m not going to sit here and say I’m going to be really good and not indulge over the christmas period because lets face it….That would be a lie. Instead I am going to enjoy myself and everything that christmas has to offer with my family and when I have had my fill I will work a little harder. My mental health is just as important to me as my physical health and I don’t want to stress about trying to be good and avoid the nice treats that come with this time of year. I know that if I’m happy and just make small changes and build on it I will be far happier in the long run, Life is far too short to be stressing and worrying about food all the time.
One thing that I’m hoping will happen especially in the new year is that I can get my husband working out either with me at home or while I’m at work of an evening. He’s not particularly over weight but from the mental health side of things he could benefit from working out. He’s job can get quite stressful from time to time being a Web Designer. But unlike me he really doesn’t like working out. It might take a bit of convincing from me to get him lifting weights etc. He’s move of a get out on the push bike when the sun is out and its warm kinda guy.
Well that’s all for this week…
