I’m one of those people who seem to get into trouble without trying. This tends to happen because I don’t think things through. Sometimes it can get me into a spot of mischief and looking like a complete idiot. Other times it makes me looking like a complete badass and living legend. After running 10k the other day, I’m not sure what my current status is.
For the last while I have been back and forth with lots of different stuff. Studying, family life, but the general theme is wanting to move forward. But do you know what the hardest thing is about trying to move forward? It’s knowing where to start. Sometimes the journey for self-improvement starts with the decision to move forward.
There is no point in exercising or trying to get fit if your diet doesn’t reflect what you are doing. For most people at this time of the year, they will be regretting those drunken announcements that they are quitting smoking, running 5k a day, or simply eating healthy. I feel your pain. But while some people are starting to slip back into old habits already, I tried to kick it up a bit with some cooking to go with my running everyday.
Sometimes we make some stupid excuses for not working out. I’m tired. I don’t have time. What good would it do me really? One one hand, I can see a valid point in all of these reasons. Or excuses, depending on your point of view.
Sunday is normally a day of rest for most people. Most people probably go to lunch with their family, or go to the park. I have no idea. I haven’t had a normal family Sunday in what seems like forever. And today was no different. Except there was a run in there at some point.
I have a problem. My problem is it’s cold outside and giving birth to two very large babies has left me, er, a bit broken. I’m at a point in my life when I need to take control of not just my fitness, but my body as well or run the risk of becoming a “Tena Lady”. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about, it’s the pelvic floor department.
Fitness is one of those things that most people struggle with, and between well meaning friends and the boo-hockey you find online, it is sometimes feels like the blind leading the blind. Thankfully these days there is an app for everything and fitness apps are on the up. So we decided to peel ourselves off the sofa and find those abs under the flab using some different apps. Here are some of our favourite free apps that can get you moving in the right direction without needing a personal trainer.
I feel ill today. No, it’s not a hangover but it sure feels like one mixed with some flu feeling. Maybe it is the flu. I’ll be honest, I don’t really care. Right now I’m lying in bed trying to keep my eyes open while resisting the urge to vomit. Yep, I feel awful. Despite this I still got up this morning and went for a run.
When I went to bed last night I knew what I had planned for today, and I had such good intentions. But as soon as my feet hit the floor this morning the day started to go badly. Wait, forget that, the day started badly before I has even opened my eyes because I had over slept….by two hours! Not a great start but I was still determined that I would achieve my goals.
