Last month saw the start of my new fitness series Fitness Fun. The aim is to share some of the fitness fun I have been enjoying over the past month.
For me the last few months I have really being keeping consistent with my workouts in the gym – Every week hasn’t been perfect but instead of all or nothing I am staying consistent!
The Yoga Fail
Last month I started doing yoga regularly on a morning following YouTube videos. This month I have only managed to do it a few times. I have decided to start again and get the full 30 days completed. I really began to enjoy it and could certainly notice a difference. I will check back in next month with the intention of keeping up with it and staying consistent!
The Cold Run
For a brief moment in February we saw a little bit of sunshine. I was at home all day and decided to go for my first outdoor run of the year – In fact it was my first run of any kind for a while. I did a steady run and walked a couple of times to get my breath back. The air is still cold this time of year and having asthma that is one of the things which I struggle with. Since then I have also run a couple of times on the treadmill. Outdoor is much more fun and I am looking forward to some sunshine and warmer days so I can get outside more!
The New Classes
In February I also tried a few new classes. I’m still loving circuits, body attack and spinning but I also gave a couple of morning classes a try. The first aerobics and the second legs, bums and tums. I don’t think these are classes I will add into my regular routine but I will do them again if I need to mix up my schedule and have to miss my regular classes.
I also went to a taster session of an Adult’s Ballet class. I danced from the age of 4 to about 14 so I wanted to give it a go as an adult. I really enjoyed it and although it wasn’t as energetic as some of the other classes I do, I still felt sore the next day. You can see why ballet dancers always have amazing figures as it’s great for toning!
There have also been a lot of food changes in the house. Keil took an intolerance test as he has been struggling to get the final results he’s wanting. A while ago he shared his weightloss tips on my blog. He took an intolerance test and the results came back that he was intolerant to quite a lot of the food he was eating such as cow’s milk, eggs and yeast. February has been a month of working out what he should and shouldn’t eat. After just a couple of weeks he is finally seeing some of those results. Eating at home is easy as we cook everything from scratch anyway but going out has certainly been a challenge. We also experimented with some delicious dairy and egg free brownies – I can’t wait to make these again!
The New Website
Myself and Keil also launched our new fitness and sport website Voltage Sport. We began with a really tough all-over circuit which we did a few weeks ago. We are excited to see where this site will take us but it certainly won’t deflect from my personal blog!
So, February has been an interesting month, I think because it is a shorter month as well it doesn’t feel like you can fit as much in! I am now well on with my countdown to Vegas so March will certainly be good when it comes to fitness!
