….since I’ve been on here
Fitness motivation has been lacking….
We had a beautiful time at the wedding in Melbourne. It was fabulous motivation to get fit and healthy, but after that it’s been a bit bumpy! Winter food cravings haven’t helped!
So, when I fall off, I always go back to these suggestions for getting back on track:
- Set goals, create an event to look forward to, book a beach holiday (bikini motivation!), set some weight lifting or body weight exercise goals.
- Plan meals – it’s too easy to fall off the nutrition bandwagon if the food you need is not easily accessible
- Have fun – mix it up. Find a new training partner, class or maybe some slick new workout wear.
It is, however good to have a break and change it up. Over the last few weeks I’ve been doing more “light accessory work”, and no pull ups. It was incredibly rewarding to achieve 4.5 pull-ups this week. The most I’ve ever done….
So, let’s not be too hard on ourselves! And enjoy our fitness
Food inspiration: My toddler and I have enjoyed making these healthy chocolate chip cookies – http://elanaspantry.com/primal-chocolate-chip-cookies/ with some sugar free chocolate or, no chocolate
New workout wear: I’m quite liking what I’m seeing over at Style Runner and Lorna Jane at the moment. This new Lorna Jane top looks different and a bit of fun – I might just have to buy it! I basically ONLY wear Lorna Jane – just call me “Lorna”, it’s on all my gear 😉
