If you’ve been following myself & Claire on twitter you will know that this year we have both taken our own routes into kicking our bodies into shape.
For me I’ve started quite slowly with my weight loss efforts. I knew I loved to run and so started that way.
There are lots of free running groups in Brighton but I chose one that is specifically for women that runs every Monday night at 6:30pm from the Odeon. The time is perfect for me as I can leave Fizz with daddy and then go for my run. It’s ends my Monday on a positive note.
I decided at the beginning to take a weekly picture or myself to show how my body is changing rather than constantly weigh myself.
So I’m about 4 months in. And Steve (who runs the running club) encourages me to step it up a gear and we agree on some weekly personal training. This is great for me. A) I need the routine and B) Steve will out me online if I don’t pull my weight. That may sound awful but you know the embarrassment is just what I need.
So my first session meant I got angry with myself. Unlike running I couldn’t keep up as well and I struggled. I know that this is the first week but I need to remember to turn that anger into motivation to do better next time and the time after that.
We worked my arms and legs and at points I was wobbly. My thighs in particular were still stiff yesterday. But I need to remember this was just the first week.
Are you setting a fitness goal this summer? We would love to hear yours and how you are trying to achieve them!
