My fitness in May
My fitness in May 2016
As you may have noticed there was a distinct lack of a fitness in post in April!

There was a few reasons behind this.  One was because I’ve been struggling to keep up with the blog.
The main reason though, is that there wasn’t a whole lot going on.  I went for 1 run, yep just 1!  I didn’t want to admit that I’ve fallen out of love with running, but I really have.

It’s now the end of May and I haven’t run once this month.  I don’t know what has happened, I’m not sure why I have stopped enjoying running, but whatever the reason, I’ve decided not to force myself to go.  I don’t want to force myself into exercise, I don’t see that it’s a positive thing to do.

So there we go, I’ve admitted my current dislike of running!  It wasn’t as hard as I thought after all!

On a more positive note, I’ve massively stepped up my yoga.  I am practicing pretty much every day now, and often twice a day.  I find that I get really grumpy if I don’t manage to squeeze in some yoga at some point in the day!

I am still going to my yoga class once a week which I really enjoy.  We have a new instructor now and he pushes us really hard which is great!!!

So there we have it, my fitness in May!  I like that I’ve taken the pressure off myself.  I am sure that at some point I will run again, but right now I want to focus on enjoying the exercise that I do!

With Arthur just starting nursery in the mornings I will be aiming to get out and about more with Freddie which will include lots of walks.  Freddie is getting pretty big now so having him in the Moby wrap will certainly be good exercise!

I’ll be back next month with another update!

My fitness in March

I’m excited to be doing these monthly fitness update posts.  A roundup of my fitness journey.  This is where I will be totally accountable for any laziness and where I can be proud of my successes!!

I’m not one for worrying about what the scales say, I care much more about how my clothes fit.  I’m proud to say that I am back into my pre pregnancy clothes, thanks to a mixture of breastfeeding, exercise and of course I can’t rule out genetics too (thanks mum and dad!!).   Despite being happy with my size I still have things I want to work on.  I want to tone up more and I want to improve my over all fitness levels.

My fitness in March

After a pretty poor, OK very poor month in February, I am back on track! I set myself realistic targets that kept me motivated!

My fitness diary for March.

1st March: Yoga class
3rd March: Yoga at home
3rd March: 5k run

8th March: Yoga class
13th March: 5k run

15th March: Yoga class
19th March: Yoga at home
20th March: 5k run

21st March: Yoga at home x2
22nd March: Yoga class
27th March: 6.5k run

On the week starting 8th March I didn’t get round to doing any yoga at home, pretty poor really but I have tried to make up for it by doing it twice this week!
We have a new yoga instructor at our Yoga class and he’s amazing. I’m working harder than I have done before as he really pushes us, it’s great! It’s been inspiring me to do more at home too.

I’m really proud to have met my running target this month, after a little dip in motivation and form I feel like I’m back on track! 5k is feeling less of a slog and more of a steady distance now I’m settled into my new route, the hills are less daunting now too.
I managed my first run over 5k, it was surprisingly comfortable despite the extra distance including a really steep hill!

Targets for April.

Im upping my targets a little this month, it may be a bit ambitious but I’m feeling good so I’ll give it a shot!

*Continue going to yoga class once a week

*Practice yoga at home at least twice a week

*Run at least once a week, minimum 5k distance

*Run further than 5k twice
