This year so far has been about pushing myself out of my comfort zone, and really seeing just what I am capable of achieving.
Throughout January, I pushed myself to go to the gym every workday on my lunch break. I’ll be honest, I struggle with some small depression issues, and the one thing that really seems to help on a consistent basis, is exercise. I’ve also struggled with my weight for most of my life, and want to get to a place where I feel confident about my appearance. So, for all of January my weekday gym schedule looked like this:
Monday – 30 min treadmill, 30 min “Full Body Express” weights
Tuesday – 45 min Spin class
Wednesday – 30 min treadmill, 30 min “On The Ball”
Thursday – either 45 min Spin or 30 min treadmill, 30 min “Full Body Express” weights
Friday – yoga or cardio
The end result for January, lost 11 pounds and was in an overall better mood than I normally would be in the winter. In fact, the weight loss is just a bonus to the mood improvements.
Since I fell into this routine without skipping a step, I figured I would push it up a notch for February, and introduce something completely new to my life, and maybe meet some people in Newmarket at the same time. Tonight, I start four weeks of ‘Booty Camp Fitness’
I am sure over the next four weeks, there will be times when I wonder ‘what have I gotten myself into’, but it won’t kill me, and it will definitely make me stronger! Check back on March 3rd, when I post my review and results of this new fitness craze!
If I survive that is.
