So 2015 for me, fitness wise has been a bit of a let down. I no way claim to be a fitness freak, or even remotely a gym bunny but I’ve always had the intention and it’s the enthusiasm that counts right? But I’m stuck in a hard place at the moment – I hate working out, but I want to be fit! You can see my dilemma right?
As I said 2015 has been a fitness failure for me. Last Christmas I asked for workout clothes and a yoga mat. Between traveling and visitors this year, I don’t think there has been 3 weeks in a row where something hasn’t happened Personally I find it difficult to get into a routine when I’m travelling or have people visiting.
So I’m hoping 2016 will be less hectic and I’m determined to get fit next year, as it’s the year I hit the dreaded 3-0! So I’ll bring my 2015 goals into 2016 and try once again. So here’s the plan, I feel if publish it i’ll need to do my best to stick to it:
- Start running, with the aim of completing a 5k by the year end.
- Take yoga up again (once a week at least).
- Commit to the Saturday morning exercise class.
While 5k might not sound a lot, currently I cannot run the length of myself. I literally hate running – I think I look funny and I’m not very good at it. But I’m determined to love it, and I’m hoping…..hoping I’ll even get up and go for a run before work.
Yoga, I started back late 2014 and stuck to it for a couple of months then 2015 came and everything fell apart. I used to go to a class on Friday evenings after work and I rather enjoyed the wind down after a busy week. So as of 2016 my aim is to go back to this class.
We have a personal trainer friend who encourages me to go to his classes. I’ve done a few this month and while the thought of getting 7.30am on a Saturday morning fills me with dread. Once I do it, I find I have a productive Saturday. So I plan to continue doing this.
Do you have 2016 fitness goals? I’d love to hear what they are…
