Getting Fit #1
As the schools have broken up for the holidays here in the UK and I could have a little more time, I thought it was a good opportunity to try to get myself into a routine to get fit. Now don’t worry. I’m not going out to buy Lycra and a head band! No- what I’m looking for is to feel less tired, less achy and have a bit more energy. If along the way I can lose a bit of weight then I won’t grumble!
Now as at the start of these ideas, you have to review your present position. Well after a very busy and stressful ( as in exhilarating) couple of months, many of my muscles have gone on strike. That means that my plans for going on our treadmill every day are out for a while. It has also meant that walking any distance has to be done in short spurts with a sit down every now and then. I visit a chiropractor though so these restrictions shouldn’t last long.
Alongside increasing the exercise is a plan to eat more fruit and bright vegetables. Apparently the bright colours are great in the fight against ageing. Now I’m not one of those who panics when another line appears but if red, yellow and green food stuffs help – I’m all for it. I have treated myself to some wonderful face cream as a treat for the hard work of the past few months.
So, I’m all ready. What I need from you Dear Reader is a little bit of encouragement to get into a routine that I can keep once life gets busy again. I will report back with news of my progress so watch this space!!
