Fighting back to fitness
Sunday, December 29, 2013
Things have been right off course for a few months now. A nasty lingering virus that seemed to mutate into different forms in order to attack my body in as many ways as it could together with Christmas overload has left me feeling really slothful and flabby. I was shocked how exhausted I felt after a short walk along the seafront in Brighton on Boxing day. Hopes of a quiet Christmas have not been realised as we've been hosting family and friends - nice, but timing for this has been dreadful. I'm shattered and can see no real chance of a rest in the week ahead either...
However, I'm fighting back on the fitness front - and trying to get some 'me time' back into my life. Yesterday I cycled 6 miles and walked round town for an hour or so. Today I did much the same - and it was much easier! I'm hoping to cycle, walk or similar every day - throughout 2013 and 2014! I know how much better it makes me feel!
My goals / targets are mixed.
1 - Do some exercise each day.
2.Be able to cycle under the railway bridge near my home ( a steep hill I always walk) is a target I'd like to reach by the end of May - I'm not rushing things:)
3. Go skiing in France - maybe Feb? Preferably not looking like Michelin Man - and able to get up after falling over would help...
4. Get into my unworn little black dress - by May
5. Join a choir
6 Play more tennis
Well this is sounding a bit like New Years Resolutions. I shall stop now so I have something to write on 1st Jan!
2013 still has 2 days to go, so I want to make the most of them!
