Fitness challenge update & some thoughts

We're over half way through the fitness challenge week and I bet you're all wondering how I'm getting on. I'm not going to lie, doing 30mins exercise each day is hard work.

On Monday I did yoga, Tuesday was weights and core exercises, on Wednesday I went for a 3mile run (I say run in the loosest sense of the word, a very slow 36 minutes, but it's something to work on!) and on Thursday I.. well... I fell asleep actually! I know that means I have failed the challenge, I can't cross that day off my training chart and I have let myself down.

I think there comes a time when you just need to listen to your body and have a rest. I've gone from complete couch potato to exercising every day in no time at all. I'm bound to get tired, I'm bound to feel achy. That doesn't mean I don't feel bad about missing a day's exercise. It also doesn't help that I ruined all my healthy eating habits by having chips with cheese and gravy for lunch but as any of you who follow me on twitter probably know a 'customer' stole my phone this morning and I needed some comfort food.

Generally though all this exercise is making me happier. I'm not getting as stressed out by the little things, at least no as stressed as I used to get! My sleep pattern has changed too, although rather than waking up several times a night and being knackered in the morning I'm zonked for 8 hours straight and not a minute less will do!

For now I'll live you with the beautiful words of Frank Turner

'Cos love is free and life is cheap

As long as I've got me a place to sleep

Clothes on my back and some food to eat
I can't ask for anything more

  1. I'm sleeping so well at the moment. However, I do hurt and the most intense piece of fitness for this week is less than two hours away! I'd like to go to bed now.
