Fitness Diary 2019

So far it has been a whirlwind, as not always been doing my weights but I started getting more disciplined last week and going to try and keep it up this week.

I have been doing my workouts on the treadmill, but I did miss a day last week, but I not going to beat myself up about it and make sure I do a workout on the treadmill this week.

I am still doing lots of walking outside, check out my instagram, where I have been posting my regular walks on my Health APP, which measures the amount of steps I have taken.

I still got a long way to go and still need to lose some weight, but I am struggle with food and finding things I can eat and then craving the bad stuff too much that I go for the chocolate and biscuits.

I have had a nasty cold and that has contributed to my energy levels being low, but I am still walking lots and going to start doing some more weights as of today.

So how is your fitness getting on for 2019?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Finding a good exercise routine

The biggest life changing thing I have done, is exercise and would find ways around how to keep fit even if it meant going on a long distant walk.

However a lot of us have a lot of trouble trying to juggle everything that finding time to exercise can be tricky, but not if you find a good routine and use exercise as a habit like you would having that morning cuppa.

I train in the evenings after my son has finished school or at the weekends when I know my son will be playing football outside. My son has the habit of wanting to climb on me as soon as I start doing my core workouts, which I always like to begin with to get the blood pumping.

Some people find working out in the morning is better, as it gets it out of the way, and when my son was a lot smaller I did used to exercise and begin pumping dumbbells whilst waiting for the kettle to boil to do his breakfast and first bottle of milk for the day.

Finding a routine that works for you can really help find those five minutes free, even if it is walking to work, for example or exercising as soon as you get out of bed.

Doing five minutes each days it better than nothing at all, and build it up as you go.

If you miss a day then don’t fear, and make sure you download the Health App on your phone as this really has helped me, as I measure my steps on a daily basis, so I know I have done something each day.

Many thanks for reading,

Here I will be posting my fitness diary for 2019, and linking my new printables page on whereby you can download a copy of my exercise plan for 2019 worksheet to use aswell.

Fitness is a huge part of my life and it is important for me to set goals for myself each year. This year is to get my fitness back by adding some workout training on the treadmill to walking outdoors, and training at home.

I have belonged to gyms before and they are a good place to start, but with my budget being tight I have to think of ways of getting fit without the cost of a membership fee.

Check out my Free Printables page where I have shared my Exercise Plan worksheet and Exercise Report sheet for 2019.

I wish you all success with your exercise and loved to hear what you plan to do and your fitness goals for 2019.

Many thanks for reading,

Fitness Diary 2018

This is the last post of my 2018 fitness diary, and it has been up and down this year. I am still not back to where I was in terms of fitness but slowly getting back to it, and measuring my steps each day is helping.

I am going to develop a new exercise plan for 2019 and do one workout on the treadmill a week, plus walking more outside when I am not working, and doing two days of weights aswell, with some floor work such as press ups, leg raises, core work and much more.

I know not to over do it, but I just need to get back that motivation and walking is really helping me to do that.

I will add some printables to once I post on my 2019 Fitness Diary. I definitely going to step it up and really push myself as much as possible.

So bring on 2019.

Happy New Year to you all
