Is anyone else surprised to find themselves in mid December already? It’s been such a quick year, and I am finding that the weeks are passing me by. I’m constantly surprised to find that it’s a Monday morning again, and time for a blog check in.
I haven’t been consistent or clear with my blogging this year and I mentioned in an earlier post that I was considering shaking up how and why I blog. I still haven’t made any decisions about this- all opinions are welcome so comment below with your thoughts!
Last week was a mixed bag for me. I’ve truly fallen off the healthy eating wagon and my work trousers are making that evident! As for fitness, I was curtailed by work plans, but here’s how my week turned out:
Monday- travelling for lots of the day but I did manage a walk, doing 15k steps
Tuesday- two classes: Sculpt and Trigger Point Pilates
Wednesday- a meeting in Glasgow meant I missed Jog Scotland but I did get a walk in and another 15k steps
Thursday- PiYo, we managed the full flow and a full round. Yay!
Saturday- a day of Clarsach and we didn’t fit in any meaningful exercise
I finish up for leave later this week and classes are beginning to wind down for Christmas so I’ll have to wait and see what I manage to commit to over the next few weeks.
Here’s today’s motivation: Have a great week!
Did you miss me last week? I was off on holiday and so I also took a sneaky little holiday from posting, too.
What did you miss? I bet I missed more!
As we had a fabulous family wedding and a trip to see more family, my fitness plans- and my 5×50 Challenge- did slip however.
Here’s a roundup of the past two weeks:
Monday – Veraflow which is a lovely, lovely class
Tuesday- Sculpt followed by Trigger Point Pilates
Wednesday – Walk
Thursday – PiYo
Friday – I didn’t get any meaningful activity in, so I’ll count that as a rest day 😉
Saturday – Wedding – I danced A LOT
Sunday – not much activity but we did walk to and from places in the West End
The following week:
Monday – travelling all day
Tuesday – walk
Wednesday – walk
Friday – walk
Saturday – walk
Sunday – walk
Did you spot the pattern last week? 🤣 The weather was lovely for late autumn- dry, crisp and cold so we made the most of it by getting out and walking. I’ve had some twinges in my left knee: nothing serious but I felt I should rest it and walk rather than risking it and running.
Here’s something different for today’s motivation, I do hope you like it: I’m not sure how achievable some of these are (day 21 – really?) but others look good to me. Have a great week!
What a week! It was incredibly busy for me, with a full on working week and another packed weekend.
I continued on my 5×50 challenge, keeping the momentum up until Thursday but getting meaningful exercise in over this weekend was incredibly difficult. Here’s what I managed:
Monday: the week started well with a lovely Veraflow class.
Tuesday: my usual Double Bubble with Sculpt followed by Trigger Point Pilates. I tried out my new balls which were amazing!
Wednesday: at Jog Scotland we did sprints – a 19 minute warm up followed by 2×2 minutes tempo, 4×1 minute and 4×30 sec sprints and a 19 minute cool down. Ace!
Thursday: a fab PiYo Class. It was amazing and I felt great afterwards!
Then, it all fell apart a little…..
Friday: I tried to get extra steps in, and we found ourselves trying to catch up some distance even in the supermarket. All in all I managed a disappointing 2.5k.
On Saturday I did a little better. We had our Christmas Day out – at sing-along-Calamity-Jane and I kicked off the day with a brisk 30 minute walk to the train station. Yay!
Sunday: not great. I was up and out early, visiting George Square in Glasgow for Remembrance Sunday. I did manage over 6.75k, so it wasn’t too bad. But it wasn’t a purposeful walk either.
I’m back on track today, and though I know I have another challenging weekend coming up with my brother and soon-to-be sister in law’s wedding on Saturday, I may well be counting dancing as my activity!
Here’s some motivation for this week:
Have a good one!
It’s another fresh week, and another damp start here in Argyll. How was your week? I was quite pleased with how I kicked off another 5×50 Challenge, and I stuck to my seven days of activity with no huge issues. Go me!
For those of you not familiar with it, the challenge is to do 5k or 30 minutes of exercise a day for 50 days, and this round kicked off last Sunday. Here’s what I did:
Sunday: a walk through Blarbuie Woods
Tuesday: Sculpt followed by Trigger Point Pilates
Wednesday: run with Jog Scotland
Thursday: 30 minute walk
Friday: 5k run
Saturday: 5k walk
Sunday: 6.6k walk along Crinan Canal
Not bad! Given that the weather is changing and we move into later autumn, here’s a reminder for you: Here’s to another great week!
