Week 12- Fitness
I have to admit I did have quite a chuckle to myself when I realised that this weeks challenge was to write about fitness…. I confess I am not one to talk to anyone about fitness. Months ago I promised myself I would start exercising and get into a proper exercise routine but this has yet to happen. I’m currently at a stage where I feel like I have little to no motivation to exercise and I only have myself to blame, luckily I have a husband and parents who try to kick my butt into gear. Fingers crossed over the coming weeks and months I will get back on the fitness ladder and feel better for it.
Since the beginning of this year I have tried a number of times to start an exercise routine and I am ashamed to say that each time I have failed within a few days. I’ve decided I probably need to start small and work my way up.
Today my Step Dad and Mum have given me a 30 day plank challenge to complete, they’ve threatened to call me on a daily basis and listen to me complete that days challenge to make sure I do it. To be honest this is the push I need but I’m also pretty nervous as that would mean I can’t get away with missing a day.
I have however been eating much healthier for the past month or two, especially now I am on a dairy free diet and I’m definitely feeling the good effects of it. Not necessarily losing much weight, but I haven’t gained any either so thats got to be a bonus!
I honestly feel that any parent who manages to do exercise more than once a week is and must be superhuman and I’d really like to know your secrets. I’m always encouraging my Toddler and Hubby to be active so I really need to practice what I preach.
How do you keep fit? Can you give me any tips on how to stay motivated and stick to an exercise plan?
