One of the reasons for doing this year long project is that I’m guilty of trying to do everything at once and hopefully having a year to do stuff will stop me from doing this.
Today I’ve been thinking about my health and fitness as Saturday is the weekly food shop day so I wanted to make sure I get my act in gear, plan my food for the following week and make a shopping list for everything I need. This is something I used to do all the time and really helped when I got busy with work as I just needed to look at the plan and the food was there ready to be cooked or warmed up.
The challenge with health and fitness is that actually you kind of have to do it all at once – I was thinking do I sort my health out first and then start exercising again or start exercising again and then the health will follow. In reality you have to do both at the same time but do the exercise in moderation and build it up slowly so that’s what I’ll do.
I am booked back into the gym on Saturday so getting back on it and forming that routine again. I’m both nervous and excited about it as I know my fitness is nowhere near where it used to be and it’s hard to accept this so I have to remind myself to be kind to myself and know that if I go consistently from now on in my fitness will return soon enough.
Over the weekend I will also fill out my own nutritional therapy paperwork and go back to basics with my health and approach it as I would a paying client and see what comes up.
