Getting fit can often be the last thing on our minds and something we start at the beginning of the year, but by February stop and then started again at the beginning of the next year.
When it comes to fitness you can begin at any time there are no real rules when getting fit, appart from learning the technique so we don’t pull a muscle or twist our ankles.
I now have begun to do walking again measuring my steps even if it is a little bit, I still record it because at the end of the day to me it is still exercise, and what I don’t do in the week I make up for when I have more time at the weekends.
Setting fitness goals are an essential part of getting fit, because then you have more chance of continuing especially when you start to see the results by doing so.
Check out my fitness goals below I have set for myself this year:
Then I have created a training log using excel, where I will put the exercise I have done each day, adding a goal each time I train for the next session, so I make slow progression and don’t do too much in one go.
As you see I have not done a huge list, but the main areas I wish to work on.
I also put how many steps I have done and then add them up at the end of each week, so I can see how much I have done and what I can increase as I go, and I try to beat each week doing more steps per week to hopefully build up my fitness again.
I also train with my weights and training mat to help me tone my body and to help with balance so I can soon begin to do some running again.
So lets work together in getting fit and remember it is about being healthy as much as it is to help maintain our body weight and size.
