Hey everyone, earlier this month I did a post containing some health an fitness goals for this month. It went down quite well and many of you asked for an update letting you know how I got on. Well, this is it. I’m typing this on the day its going up (27th) so all of the information is as up to date as physically possible.
Well, the Australian Open is over, insomnia doesn’t disappear overnight, so I haven’t slept 8 solid hours a night, but I think I have slept every night even it’s just been a few hours. I’m considering this goal complete.
Goals #2 and 3
Eat like my usual self
Goal complete. A resumed regular sleep pattern made eating like my usual self adjust naturally. I did also say no processed gluten. I failed miserably here. Bread is a weakness for me. As a result of the failure of the second part of this goal my stomach still isn’t the happiest, but I have more plans to adjust this in March.
Now I have both succeeded and failed here. I wanted to run again, and I wanted to run outside again. I’ve been running. I’ve managed 15 runs this month and have one planned for tomorrow, so that will be four a week. I’m reasonably happy with this as a ‘getting back into it’ plan.
I haven’t managed to run outside. Without wanting to sound like your grandma, my joints suffer massively in the cold. No matter how many layers I wear, my recovery is always harder in colder temperatures. When I wrote the original goals post I thought it would get slightly warmer in February, I’m currently looking out of my window to a few inches of snow. I’ll be carrying this one forward to next month but I’m fairly happy that I managed to get moving anyway. I also ran my fasted mile since my ankle injury so yay for that.
As for the ab app I was using, I didn’t do the 30 days in 30 days, but I am still using it. I took a few days off for my period, no one needs to put their abs through more pain on their period, fact. So, at that point I decided to do the ab workout as and when I feel like it as a secondary workout rather than a daily thing.
How have you managed with your goals this month? I’m happy with my progress so far.
