Hello, I hope you’re well on this dark, misty, damp night. It seems that winter is here, and we’ve started the working week with very little daylight.
Did you have a good week last week? I did, I was back on track and stick to my healthy eating up until the end of the week, but that was all part of my plan 👍🏻
Last Monday saw the return of Glo fitness, which Jacqui has added into the mix in place of WAR during this wintry weather. It felt fantastic to get the heart rate up, with disco lights and glow sticks to boot. Wilma has the most amazing trainers with multi coloured light up soles- I love them! I burned over 450 calories so it was a solid start to the week.
Tuesday night was a double header: Fitball Stability is a real favourite and we’re ramping up the intensity with heavier weights and increased intervals. That class was then followed by PiYo Stretch and Flow which always feels good afterwards.
I made it along to JogScotland on Wednesday- hurrah! And even though I hadn’t run in weeks, I managed a steady 35 minutes with no walk breaks. I really want to keep this up during the winter so I’ll be planning to run again this week, if I’m back in time.
I missed PiYo and VeraFlow on Thursday as I was at the Steps concert! 😀🎉 They were supported by the Vengaboys and I did plenty of dancing, managing over 27,000 steps for the day.
I also managed around 15k steps on Friday and on Saturday too, so I was pretty pleased with how the week went. I enjoyed a bit of a rest day yesterday as I was busy driving home, but I’m back to my usual routine today. Here’s your motivation for today:
Have a brilliant week!
Well, it’s definitely turning wintery, the wind has a nip in it, and the temperature has dropped. Don’t you love the time of year? The only down side is the dark evenings, making it a bit more challenging to fit in running.
Last week, I had a solid week and I was almost back on track. I ate well, and I had an ace week with different classes:
Monday was the final WAR of this block, and I’m looking forward to trying out Glo again, which I haven’t done for some time. It should be great fun! Tuesday and I was back at stability ball, which was tough going: Jacqui added in weights, which was great. I wasn’t able to stay for Stretch and Flow, and I also missed Jog Scotland on Wednesday – it’s been a while since I’ve fit in a session, so I’m hoping to get along to the informal runs that are taking place between now and January.
Thursday night’s PiYo was magic: this new round is fun and challenging – and the music is awesome! We also had a return to VeraFlow, which I just love, and Jacqui introduced a mix of old and new tracks.
I’m hoping to fit in most classes this week, though I have other plans for Thursday night, so I will be missing my Piyo and VeraFlow fix. I’m sure I’ll make up for it somewhere!
Here’s your motivation for the week, if you need it:
Hve a great week! 😀
Just a fleeting post tonight, as I’m a little rushed. I’m looking forward to a full week of classes his week, and sticking to my fitness and eating plan.
Bring it on!
OK. Last week didn’t go to plan. Or to be more precise, last week had no plan. I had a rare week where I did hardly any exercise, and I ate why I liked. Oops.
I am now paying the price for that, feeling a bit rubbish and sluggish, and my jeans are a little too tight for comfort!
So, it’s back on track this week when I can- I do have a really busy week ahead, but I’ve started well today with my eating back on track and a spooky WAR class in the bag 👍🏻
We all have occasional blow outs, but that’s ok if it’s only once in a while, and if we rein it back in.
If this resonates with you, I hope this helps:
Hello! How was your week? Mine was busy, but great fun. We were on holiday, spending three days in Somerset and three days in Edinburgh, so we pretty much covered the country from one end to another!
We did plenty of walking and we enjoyed lots of great food – as well as a few gins 😁
But I’m back to my routine today, so I did my Sunday night food prep so that I could start on track first thing.
Here’s to a new week, and here’s your motivation right here:
So, tell me: how has your week been? You may remember that last week I mentioned that I was doing a 10 day accountability/clean eating challenge, and it finished last Thursday. I really enjoyed the challenge and did well, losing a few centimetres and 2lbs along the way. I also re-established some food prep routines and focussed more on portion control and eating well. What’s not to love?
After a few more lenient days over the weekend, I’m back on track until the end of the week when I’m having a few days away.
I stayed in track with both my eating and my exercise last week, with one exception. I made it to my classes (Monday- WAR, Tuesday- Stability and then Stretch and Flow, Thursday- PiYo) but I wasn’t home in time for JogScotland last Wednesday. I’m hoping to get Running this week, however 👍🏻
Here’s a lesson that really helped me during the 10 day challenge, which I really think is an absolute truth:
Have an ace week!
