Fitting Exercise into your daily routine

Check out this article about, fitting exercise into your daily routine.

When you have a busy life it can be tricky, but you can fit it in, even if it is 10 minutes a day, you can do it.

I love walking and fit it in after I drop my son off a nursery, and I will do the same tomorrow when I drop him off at school.

Instead of getting off the bus at the stop outside your house, get off the bus at the stop before, or depending how far you work, walk home.

I used to in when I worked in Kingston would walk home all the way to Epsom and even when I lived Wimbledon, I would walk home from Kingston to Wimbledon.

So lets get fit even in the Autumn we can still keep fit.

Fitness Diary 2018- Walking back to fitness

Every time I see family or friends I often get asked if I am still running still, and for the time being I have put that on hold, I just can’t seemed to find the spark I had for running at the moment, so for me walking in the second best thing.

I make sure I walk Henry to nursery and back, and not take the bus, and last Saturday my husband and I, took my son on a walk along the Southbank in London.

I think since my husband drives I have become a bit lazy, but I am slowly but surely walking myself back to fitness. I will do weights, balancing, core and floor workouts in between, my walking.

Walking so therapeutic, and really helps balance the mind.

I am going to try my hardest and do longer walks after I drop my son at nursery or soon will be school, and I will walk to my new job I am starting too.

What I love about walking is that you can almost do it anywhere and as long as you got comfortable clothing and shoes, you can be off and away until you can walk no more.

Do you like walking? What’s your favourite exercise?

I love to hear from you.

I hate penalty shoot outs

This blog was going to be called many a title, firstly it was going to be a review of the World Cup 2018 so far, then it was going to be about diving, as face it there has been quite a lot, but since last night, I was reminded of how much I don’t like penalty shoot out.

My mindset going into this World Cup, and going on the pass stresses England matches have caused, I went into this one with no expectation. I really thought we were going to get knocked out yesterday, as Columbia took our glory away last minute of the second half and scored.

At one point I was like sod it, I’ll join my husband and go asleep, but of course that was never going to happen, as I had to see what the outcome would be.

My heart sank when one of England penalties were saved, but thank the lord that Columbia who were up to score a penalty next and missed.

I still don’t like penalty shoot outs, they are crawl way of going out, but thankful that England won last nights, I just hope we don’t have to go through that again.

No need to hit the gym

Who says you need to have a gym membership to get fit?

If you have a set of dumbbells and a pair of trainers then that is all you need.

I just read this blog in link below which goes through how you can get into shape for the summer in your own home.

It is truly is easy and I always make time to exercise even if it is for 10 minutes, it breaks up my days and I find I get more done, when I do some training.

I use my own body strength to help me by doing lunges, squats, the plank and press ups, etc.

So forget the gym and put some of your favourite tracks on, for me it is chill music and get pumping those reps ready for that summer body.

Many thanks for reading,

Workout Motivation

There is nothing more motivating to me than seeing other people working out.

Here’s a video of Mimi Ikonn showing the exercises she does that helps tone the arms.

The one thing I love to do to tone the arms apart from using weights, is by doing Boxing exercises.

There is a video which does 15 minutes of Boxing training, which you can easily do at home.

What motivates you to workout, I would love to hear your recommendations.

Many thanks for reading,

Fitness Diary 2018

Here is the start of my 2018 diary and this year I am working out on alternate days, using my weekends off to catch up on my fitness aswell as during the week, with some indoor workouts.

Today I worked out to a video  on Youtube, which was 15 minute Boxercise workout. Check out below:

This is a cost effective way to workout, when I am paying to use the internet so why not use it to my advantage.

I will share more of my workouts as the year commences. I would love for you to share what workouts you like to do.
