At last, I can report that I had a good, solid week of exercise and eating. Hurrah! It’s taken me a few weeks, but I’ve turned that corner.

Ok, so I was relaxed at the weekend as we had visitors, but all in all I’m pretty pleased with how last week went. Monday was a Sculpt class which was a great way to start the week. We used resistance bands, and as there were only two of us it was like a PT session- and I reckon I worked pretty hard! Tuesday was Trigger Point Pilates and while Jog Scotland was cancelled on Wednesday, I still managed to get my step count in. Thursday was a welcome return to PiYo and how I’ve missed that class! I just loved the lower body section- the burn was great! I then got a walk in on Friday to round out the work week.

This week, I’m in Edinburgh so I’ll be missing my regular classes. But I’m motivated and determined to stay on track even if I am in a hotel for a few nights. I’ve got this! Have a great week!

Well, it’s a bit of a Winter Wonderland to start the week here in Tarbert with snow blanketing the village, making it look like a Christmas Card. But I’ve had enough of the festive imagery and I am ready for the snow to go…. we’ve had much more than usual, and it has played havoc with my routine!

Last week I started off well with Glo, followed immediately by Sculpt, a 45 minute session doing some resistance band training. And it was good! I had serious DOMS afterwards 👍🏻

We didn’t have any other classes during the week, but I did manage a solid 5k in Thursday and plenty of walking when it was just too icy for me to run. I had hoped to get another run in at the weekend but this weather has put paid to that idea. Oh well!

On the food front, I’ve been much more consistent with healthier choices and healthy snacks taking priority for most of the week. Hurrah! A solid week at last. I finally feel like I’m making some progress. I’m not where I’d like to be, but it’s all about enjoying the journey, am I right?

Have a good week- and stay on track!

So tell me- how was your week? Did you see the Supermoon on Wednesday? It was pretty impressive here- and unusually, it was a clear night and we could see it!

Last week was a much better week for me. As reported, I had Glo on Monday and Trigger Point Pilates on Tuesday. And while I didn’t manage to JogScotland or to PiYo, I did get my earring and healthy choices under control – for the first week since before Christmas! Yay!

I wasn’t 100% committed all week but I was much more on track for much more if the time, so I’m taking that as a win.

I then went to see Strictly on Tour on Friday night which was awesome, I loved it! We went for dinner before hand, but I made good choices and didn’t have dessert- so I think that was fair enough, too.

Let’s see if I get through this week on track….. I’ll keep you posted!

Sometimes, the best laid plans slip. That just about sums up my year to date: here I am, looking at the end of January, and instead of being firmly on track by now as I usually would be, I’m still feeling the hangover from the festive period. I’ve had lots on, and I’ve been busy every weekend which has been wonderful, but the downside is that my routine has suffered.

I did start off – yet again – with good intentions last week: on Monday I had Glo, which was ace! It was just what I needed to blow off some cobwebs and I worked hard, buring almost 600 cals. On Tuesday, I went to Trigger Point Pilates which was just what I felt I needed, and I think that I’m really benefitting from these classes overall.  I also ate well at the start of the week. My work trip to Islay on Thursday meant that I didn’t manage back in time for PiYo, which didn’t really help at all as I find that Thursday nights really keep me focussed and on track heading into the weekend, not to mention that I love the class!

I then had a wonderful weekend away in Edinburgh to see Miss Saigon, and while I walked a lot and reached my step target each day, I did have yet another foodie blow-out. Oh dear. And so here I am, yet again, starting afresh today. My kit is packed and ready for Glo, and I’ve eaten well today so I’m starting this week as I mean to go on. I know that it will be another challenging end to this week with another trip away, and I won’t manage to PiYo or VeraFlow yet again, but I’m determined to do better than I did last week.

So for anyone else feeling the same way, I hope this helps:

Hello, all. After a week of poor weather and not quite getting back on track I’m determined to make this week the one that counts for me. I did start off with good intentions last Monday, but various things threw me off track as the week went on.

The good news is I’ve started right today, even managing to burn over 550 calories at Glo tonight. I worked hard!

So, here’s to a new week, and a new focus: 🙂
