Jelly Belly To Yummy Mummy #20

It’s nearly Christmas whoop whoop!

So this last week has been a good week really in terms of how I feel mentally and emotionally. Workout wise has been ok only managed 2 work outs but I made sure I pushed myself and worked my butt off.

In Last week’s post I was saying how much weight I felt had been lifted since I had changed my attitude and approach to my health and fitness, well this week I just feel amazing mentally and emotionally. I genuinely feel really chilled out, relaxed and happy despite all the stresses that come with Christmas.

So this last week workout’s have been an improvement. I did a Kettlebell/body weight strength training session in my living room at 5:50am thanks to my darling son refusing to go back to sleep. So while the hubs said with him trying to get him to sleep I worked out ( I will point out that Logan had been awake from like 2:30-3:00am). I was really pleased with myself for making this effort because normally I would’ve laid in bed not getting sleep while trying to sleep. Instead I made the decision to just get on.  I had planned to work out again this Friday just gone but the weekend turned out to be pretty busy so I decided to wait until yesterday and I’m glad I did because I had an urge to go for a run. To get out in the fresh air and push myself. So that’s what I did. I went running. I will make it clear that I haven’t been running since I had my shin splints which was months ago. I decided to take the walk/run approach but to go on my bodies feelings rather than follow an app. To my surprised I did better than I thought and felt amazing.

Food well I’ve not been good but it’s christmas and I want to enjoy myself, it’s that simple. I deal with the aftermath in January.

With Regards to this week I don’t think I am even going to attempt to fit a workout in. Purely because I have so much house work to do before Christmas and then with Christmas itself I will just be busy and I don’t want to put any added pressure on myself. I’m sure there is someone out there that will read this and think what a load of BS! just make time and their right I could probably make time, but I don’t want the added stress.

Anyway that’s it for this weeks folks.
