Three cheers for surviving the first week back at work and the gym!
Three pats on the back for getting through it without any champagne, cheese or…. okay maybe a tiny bit of chocolate.
Time to get back on track…
Monday morning was a full blown struggle, it was cold, dark and raining. All the ingredients for a perfect duvet day.
The return to work was not too bad, time flew by with sharing our stories of the festivities and of course showing off my engagement ring 😉
After work I went to a circuits class which was, even at only 50% effort, a complete killer. The holiday weight gain was more than apparent.
45mins circuit class
Second day back at work and it felt like we’d never been on holiday.
After work I went for a run with my sister as the gym was packed and all the classes were full.. January problems.
Our run was cut short due to weather but I was excited to finally try out my new toy from Santa.
15mins running (1.6miles)
I took my first BodyPump class in 8 months. OUCH! Im still undecided on whether I’ll make this a weekly thing.
I managed to squeeze my way into the gym and sneak on a treadmill that a friend was just finishing on!
After running I done some core work before two of my friends met me for a swim. I’m not sure if I mentioned before, I am a very weak swimmer, something I want to work on this year. The girls were practically doing three lengths to my pathetic one.
30mins running (3mile)
22 lengths (25m pool)
I really wanted to run outdoors but the weather disagreed. Strong winds and little people are not a good combination!
Instead I headed back to the gym for some more bonding with the treadmill, again followed by some core work.
30 mins running (3 miles)
Not so busy on a Saturday afternoon. I think the key in the January rush is to avoid peak times…
I’ve no excuses I was just plain lazy.
January Fitness goals
• Run longer distances
My first half marathon is 9 weeks away , I’m hoping to be able to run at least 6miles by the end of the month.
• Lose 5lb
I had gradually gained weight all year then some more over the holidays my goal weight would require losing 15lb but by the end of January ill be happy if I manage 5lb
Are you trying to achieve any fitness goals?
Thanks for reading, have a great week ❤
