I am so sorry, I really wanted to start my week in workouts posts over two weeks ago now, but I fell ill with awful sickness and then I lost my voice and had a cold/cough, so I just couldn’t begin as I wasn’t strong enough or mentally in the right place to go for it. But it’s here finally and I’m feeling so good about it; I’ve bought some new Sweaty Betty leggings to motivate myself, along with my goodies from Be:Fit London (which I’ll share soon!). This week has been focused on the gym rather than classes, but next week it will be a lot more varied.
My week last week looked like this:
Monday – Gym: loads of leg work, followed by abs, and finishing with sprints!
Tuesday – Rest day (so tired today, I had planned to go to the gym, but I fell asleep after work!)
Wednesday – Gym focusing on Arms & Abs and 30 minutes of cardio spilt between the cross trainer, the bike and the treadmill
Thursday – Rest day
Friday – I meant to go to the gym but didn’t!!! NAUGHTY!
Saturday – Rest day (Tom’s birthday too, so it’s a cheat day – CAKE!!)
Sunday – 30 minute jog outdoors and 30 minutes of yoga at home
A motivational quote of the week:
My power song:
One Dance – Drake
Seriously this song makes me want to run, lift, dance, jump – basically just keep moving! So I have been playing this full blast through my headphones whilst at the gym to keep going and it’s been helping.
My favourite downtime activity:
Packing and sorting stuff for our holiday! We’ve got less than 3 weeks now – can’t believe it!!
My go-to workout snack or meal:
RUDE HEALTH Mini Corn Crackers as a snack and avocado on toast for lunch.
Who has motivated me this week:
Anna, my amazing cousin, who has worked very hard on her health and fitness journey over the past 6 months or so. She is now extremely encouraging and supportive to me and anyone who wants to achieve their fitness goals. We go to a Legs, Bums & Tums class together on a Wednesday now which is so much fun – I always believe that making fitness into a social activity helps it become something you love and want to stick to.
So this was technically my week no.1, I think it went quite well, but next week there will be a little more variety and I may share some recipes with you too! I hope you all had a healthy and fun week, thank you for reading & I’ll be back next week to share more of my fitness journey.
