Had a great day yesterday very productive day cleaning 🧽🪣 even did a hour and half workout doing all my favourites. I managed to clock up 22,000 steps which is great for the weekend. The only annoying thing is having a bottle of wine Friday evening and last night 🍾I don’t know why I do it, but to be fair both mornings I have felt great still have the energy for my cleaning and workouts and even took a long walk down to knightshayes in the lovely sunshine which has been kindly out for us🌞
Hope all is well with the world I’m now plan to have a lovely meal of spag bol and a nice quite relaxing evening followed by a early nights sleep to feel fresh and great for the next day.
Hope you all sleep well with all the exercise I have done I should sleep very well. 🛏😴
So I have started reading this book so far so good I feel it’s going to be a great read one that will give me inspiration and keep me grounded. It’s called no one can change your life except for you. It’s a true title no one can, I don’t need to change anything in my life but if I could I would like to change my hometown to the beach not sure what one any will do me.
I started this fitness journey a year ago now and so glad I did, I don’t want to give it up now I come so far. everyday I like to do different workouts because I don’t want to get bored of my favourites I did do walking Abs with Rick again today but I do like to do Abs and if I can get some extra steps in then it’s a win win.
Almost the weekend which means I can do my workouts, clean and even read some more of this book. I do enjoy a good read. I’m hoping in the summer to go for a long walk and find a nice place to sit and read in the sun, the gardens great but it would be very relaxing someone with water like the canal or river.
So keep safe stay healthy and relax with a good book, I recommend all of fearne cotton books if you want some self help advice or if your looking for comedy grab a copy of shagged married annoyed. Or a fun book to get into is Sophie Kinsella’s shopaholic no matter how many times I read those books I still find them funny and gripping you can’t go wrong with any of her books.
I will keep you posted on my thoughts of Laura whitmore no one can change your life but you.
So the return to the normal this week but I really want to keep up my fitness routine, so when I got home today I did my fav workout day 4 wake up with joe followed by a new one by Gina b which was step back to the 50s walkout. Very much enjoyed, then did a 20 min yoga.I’m hoping that will help me sleep well tonight.
I must admit it was nice to go back to normal and still get a walk in to work and back. I don’t even feel bad now I’m sat watching t.v.
All in All it’s been a productive day 💪💪
May walk abit further tomorrow if sun is out a walk to the river to calm the stresses of the day, if not a Rick workout will be much appreciated.
Fridays I have planned to make it my walk up the canal while listening to S.M.A could be dangerous if it’s to funny I nearly laughed out loud last week in public.
Great morning workout with 40sec work 15 sec rest.
Starting with a 40sec fast run.
6 high knees and I Burpee
Working the core abs move with a toe touch
5 press ups and 4 lunge jumps
Side crawl burpees
Side plank (right)
Side plank (left)
A few workout moves I done this morning then I done walking abs and a 80s power walk.
I have been doing a 15 min dance move with (Jamie kinkeade) it brings your heart up very high and gives a great sweat on. So worth doing.
And I then done a 30min Gina b walk into 2020 which was last new year so unaware of how her workouts would become so important that year.
And a treat through the door for me today my women’s health mag. Enjoyable read.
Who knows what the future holds but I’m confident to keep up this fitness journey of fun and plenty of sunshine walks.
I don’t worry about lying in the garden for hours this summer, taking a walk in the sunshine will be more of a benefit as I will loose so much time with working so I’m going to do everything I can to keep my fitness going.
Let’s have a positive week and a catch up on my sleep is much needed.🛌😴😴😴😴
This time of year is a great time it’s a good chance to revalue everything you have all the beautiful flowers and the new baby animals everywhere. It makes you start to think about the summer months and with that comes the change in diet and the lighter days and evenings.
At Christmas I did a few challengers and last year I completed some online courses, I done a yoga challenge also along with a confidence course.
Now it’s time for some new plans and a new routine although at the moment I don’t feel like going back to my work life because I’m going to miss my workouts and my walks, I’m still planning on keeping my workouts up and my walks. It’s to important for me to give up now.
I plan on doing workouts from Monday to Thursday leaving Fridays to walk the canal after work. Least I will get a good walk in some part of my week and leaving the weekends to do workouts and long walks. Oh and the cleaning god knows how to fit everything in.😡🤬
This week I’m planning to go to the canal for a long walk and maybe even sit somewhere and read. I have a few books I want to read. That’s if the sun wants to shine my way.🌞
Hope your all having a happy Easter 🥚
I shall do a piece about this book when I have read it and give my honest opinion.
Just wanted to celebrate my win today of winning my 40,000 step badge with fitbit.
It was my goal this lock down to get that badge and today I did it.
I never planned today to do it it just sort of happened that way. Once I did a workout and a early then normal walk to the canal, a shopping trip in between then a long walk home while listening to my podcast S.M.A I just couldn’t resist walking that bit longer and then I thought this is my best chance of getting that badge.
I’m feeling very positive and happy now I done it. It’s a great feeling and now I’m going to relax.
It’s not something I aim to do all the time but it’s good to complete a goal.
Hope everything is good and positive, having a positive week so far with my workouts. Done a lot of burpees this week which is fine I don’t mind them at all. This week I’m determined to exercise a lot as last week a miss of two days in the week and the weekend had me missing doing even 20 mins of a hiit workout.
I have listened to a few good podcast this week so recommend you take a listen to Frankie bridge this week talking to a guy called Joshua fletcher who spoke about how people can over come there fear of coming out of lockdown, as some people (me) is abit worried about going out in the busy world again, he had a lot of good points so I recommend a listen.
I clocked up about 30,000 steps today by my 20 min PE session which had a lot of burpees like I said and a lot of leg moves and cardio so I done a 7 mins ab burner to end that session on as it’s so good for the core muscles.
I later went on to a new walking workout which I ended up doing 3 Rick workouts in the end as they are so fun. Followed by a dance studio 15 min dance which I’m getting better at cos it’s so fast.
I then went on and done up to the beat 20 min dance which was so fun with great tunes.
My yoga session today was go with the flow it is a nice 20 min body moving to the flow to help centre your mind and let body and mind flow peacefully. It’s good practice for when your off the mat as well.
Ending my busy morning with a 2 hr walk to my local canal where I listened to my sounds of the 90s from Friday night and a podcast which was linked to my mag women’s health and it was all about unhealthy snacking and how to manage lockdown hair problems.
We all find different ways to keep are minds healthy mine being colouring and drawing can really help lower blood pressure and leave you feeling more relaxed less stress. To do a activity like this as much as possible has a positive effect on your mental state of mind.
Exercise is a great form of self care which not only helps keep you physically fit and healthy it’s great for your mental health too but you also need to have a mental activity just for your mind for when you want to chill out and rest either after a long hard workout or on your rest day.
It’s like reading a book the satisfaction you get when you finish the book feels like you have achieved something you feel the same when you finish that colouring or drawing.
During lockdown a lot more people have turned to activities like this to keep the mind busy. It’s just a little step to relaxing like reading your mind really does wonder.
I always wonder when I’m pulling out a pen why I choose that colour and what would that picture look like if I used a different colour, it’s not a important image to think of but it’s nice to think of things that are not a big deal, even just for that 30 min colour session.
Nobody should have to live with worrying for 24hrs take time out to build a happy healthy mind along side your happy healthy body, it’s all linked together and we should think of it as a whole.
Keep drawing colouring and looking after yourself let’s live a happy healthy life.
