New pages!

I added a couple of pages this week to my new bullet journal!

Running to-do list: very important page. Everything that has to be done gets scribbled here. The best thing is that I can scratch out stuff I no longer have to do, and move other things to the Future log when they become permanent.

30 day challenge! I have body image problems, I didn’t put a weight gauge because that’s a personal trigger. I figure with measuring myself once a month I’ll be able to acknowledge my bodies fluctuation without panicking when I “suddenly” can’t fit into my jeans that are 10 years old! However, I haven’t fully crossed out the idea of a monthly weighing session, I’m not sure where to put it! Page 24 key is on page 23, 30 day challenge, I want to do an activity 5 days out of the week, 2 rest days. Running twice a week, Strength training twice a week and Cardio/Yoga session every second week.

30 day challenge with Meditation and Sun and Moon Salutations. I recently bought the book The Mind Illuminated by Culadasa (John Yates) and Matthew Immergut with Jeremy Graves. I will be working through this book to cement my meditation practise. I might do a post about this at some point as well.

April Review

Health & workouts

Did amazing with the meditation.
Yoga too, feeling at peace with myself.
Negative body image is not fun.
Found the way to negative prevention:
Fitting into new clothes bought off the shelf!

All my clothes are way too small. It took me
A long time to notice I am not fat.
I never had to struggle with my body
In this way. Take it on the chin, wisely.
Follow the wave, that is the way to do that!

February Review

I have had the Patreon blog for two years now and I think I’ve finally figured out how to use it. I will try to do a monthly review at the end of each month. On my WordPress blog, it will be a summary of the Patreon blog. I am asking you for a minimum of €1 per post. You are welcome to donate whatever you want, €5, €20 or even €50!

My priorities for the year 2018 are: Continue reading

Fitness Monthly Review: April

From last Friday (21st/04) to Monday (24th/04), I did not do any exercising. On Tuesday, I did a 30-minute abs workout, it was intense. Standing abs, lying down abs, and planks, 3 rounds of each section will stop I did 2/3 rounds of the planks, my abs were burning and I could not finish the workout. I am very happy with my effort.

Week 1 of New Routine

4 hours in total last week! Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are running days. I managed to get out last Friday but haven’t since. We were waiting for a package to arrive, I couldn’t leave the apartment. Thank you, UPS for the inconvenience. I did 15 minutes on the elliptic trainer on Monday instead. Thursday is strength day, today I did a 30-minute dumbbell workout. I will be doing a different strength equipment workout each week and hopefully will be able to repeat some in the future. To check my progress. Saturday is cardio day. Sunday is training with my boyfriend. Last week we did a full hour of kickboxing. It flew by, I seriously did not notice the time. It was an awesome session. And Tuesday is abs day.

Every single day, bar Sunday, I do 10 minutes of kickboxing. To practice my punching. I also do approximately 10 minutes of a warm up and cool down, before and after my workout. Last week I said my goal was to do 2 hours and 30 minutes each week, I forgot to add in the 30 minutes of cardio. My actual goal is 3 hours. The warm up and cool downs are not included in this. However, I have them included in my Excel tab. This week I did 3 hours and 10 minutes plus 50 minutes of warming up and cooling down, which is the 4 hours total.

This week I took a rest day on Wednesday. It is good to know that even though I took a day off I can still hit my goal. That’s it from me for this week. Happy Thursday!
