Well I went and did my first yoga class on Wednesday, that is about the only fitness activity that I have participated in so this is going to be a fairly short post. The plus side is that I think I have found something that I can potentially enjoy. The downside is that I am SO SORE from the class that I have done nothing else for the rest of the week. In fact I have been sleeping with my electric throw rug on and slung over my lower back to help ease the pain! BUT I am going back, tomorrow in fact.
So I enjoyed the stretching and slowness of the class. It was helpful to get my mind to slow down for a little while. That part was really nice.
I didn’t enjoy the fact that I am no where near as flexible as I used to be, which is one of the many reasons I want to go back. I am seriously thinking about adding a couple of body balance classes into my routine (ha!) so that once I start actually making it to my classes I get a bit more flexibility work in.
So for the coming week in terms of fitness I really want to get moving again properly, to that end I am going to:
Tuesday: Body balance
Lets see now that I have told you what my plans are exactly how far I get through them huh? What are your fitness plans for the week? Anyone else struggling to get motivated again? See you on the flip side!
I have been looking for a way to be accountable for my fitness or lack thereof for a while and.. well… This seems like as good an idea as any!
So I am a wannabe runner… Actually no you know what I am a runner. I run slowly and I am certainly not competing against anyone but myself but I run, and I enjoy it.
At the moment I am re-doing the C25K routine because I am sorry to say that after completing the bridge run in September of last year I let my running lapse and didn’t really start again until we moved. Needless to say I ended up back at square one both with my weight and with my fitness.
So my starting weight is: 85kg (yipes! when did THAT happen)
I do my best to get out and run/walk at least 3 times a week, sometimes 4 if I can manage it. I am also adding a gym member ship and pump classes to the mix. Although a small blip as appeared in the form of Bowen Therapy. I have had lower back pain and some pain in my left leg for a while now and decided to give bowen therapy a try after hearing good things. One of the therapists first rules was no running for the next few weeks so that she can get my back sorted. Boo! But here’s to hoping it makes a difference right? So pump classes alone it is, but that will give me a great foundation to get back out there ASAP once I AM allowed to run again!
I have also started tracking calories on MFP and have managed to stay reasonably consistent with it. When I can say I have logged in for 7 days in a row I will be a happy woman.
So the question is anyone have any no supplement/drink/crash diet advice? or has anyone tried bowen therapy and had some success?
