Keeping on top of my fitness during the holidays

16 December 2017

Park Running

Wow it’s not even Christmas yet and I’ve been eating eating EATING!

Brunch with girlfriends. Lunch with my parents. Evening BBQs with friends. Dinner parties with family.

It’s such a blessing to be surrounded by good people and good food all the time….

Buuuut, I have to keep on top of my exercise, or I’ll feel absolutely terrible, lethargic, moody and have poor sleep. Not to mention, I’ll probably gain 5kgs with all the eating.

Here’s a rough look at my routine at the moment.

Sunday – Run 5km

Monday – Yoga

Tuesday – Walk

Wednesday – Run 5km

Thursday – Yoga or Strength

Friday – Nothing!

Saturday – Nothing!

For my strength exercises, I’ve been doing a bit of Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Workout (not that I’m aiming for a bikini body) I’m just looking for exercise routines.

I pulled a muscle in my neck a while ago, which rendered me useless for a few weeks. It was so frustrating to get into a good exercise momentum, get so far in my strength, then have to go back to square one. Sigh.

But hey, we have to look after our bodies right? I can only do what I can with what I have.

All the best for your exercise routine during the holidays!
