This post is one for people as nosy as me!!
I see loads of people, on the internet & people I know trash themselves in gyms & workout classes! Well, not me, no thank you. I’m not into working out till I can’t breathe, I’m lazy for one & heavily unfit for another! Maybe one day I’ll be able to run for 20 minutes on the treadmill but, right now, nope!! Over the years, even though I consider myself a go with the flow kind of person for the most part, I’ve come to realise that when it’s stuff that I struggle with, like healthy eating & exercise, I definitely feel that I need some kind of structure & routine (that’s why I never got on with slimming world, it’s far to lacks on structure & it’s so easy to cheat).
I like calm easy fitness. I love the idea of yoga because it sounds to me like it’ll help me concentrate on my breathing, something I’m rubbish at, I occasionally find myself holding my breath for no apparent reason! Random I know but I do! It sounds like it’ll also focus on helping me stretch out my muscles, I suffer a lot with cramps & muscle spasms (I assume that’s to do with my weight & lack of health), so I’m hoping it will help with that too.
I’ll be starting the week off with Monday morning yoga, the only thing I’m wondering is, when I start work at 9.30am it’ll be easier to do that but when I start at 8am, I may just wait until I get home?? Decisions, decisions??
On Tuesdays, I’m really looking forward to going on the treadmill, especially when the warmer weather comes so I can have the window open next to me & feel the breeze coming through. I’m hopeful that Richard will join me on occasions, on the treadmill & rowing machine.
Thursdays I want to throw in some kind of dance fitness, we have the Wii & my niece has the Wii Dance games, so I’m hoping to pinch some & throw my (not so) massive body around my lounge & hope I don’t break anything! Hehe. Or even throw on my feel good soundtrack & shake my booty to it.
I feel like I want to do more yoga to wind down for the weekend (I may be getting this all wrong & find yoga really hard!).
Over the weekend, I’d love to go for a walk (weather permitting of course) with Richard. Also, me & Richard both enjoy swimming so we can throw some of that in the weekend too. We’re going to be growing a lot of produce this year, so the weekends will contain garden &/or allotment work (it all counts).
I may throw in some more yoga mornings when I’m on the later shifts & some more treadmill sessions when I get home from work after an earlier shift, I’ll see how I go.
I’m not going to be 100% with “I must do this on this day” but I want to stick to a routine with the majority of it.
If you have any exercise tips for a lazy exerciser, then let me know.
Have a glorious weekend.
Bye for now.
