JUNE IS BUSTIN OUT…..
Good morning people…. so here I stand once more on the cusp of one more stab at the transition between Nearly Fit and Really Fit.
Yesterday I sat down and picked up my latest Diary that I had planned to use to record my efforts since 15th March 2019, giving myself 7 months to reach a 6 month Target….
All went well for about 11 days followed by a few distractions until April 22nd….. then nothing until yesterday 31st May!!
I woke up to the realisation that I had lost over a month and gone from doing so much to doing nothing…. Or had I?
I had in fact done so much in a short space of time, just not what I had planned or promised myself in the health and fitness department!
I had allowed myself to become distracted, enjoyed the process too much, made excuses that I could easily get back on track, but failed to make the necessary effort required on a consistent daily basis.
I lost my way, lost my focus, wasted time and became a procrastinator despite “knowing better”, but at least I gained some new experiences and memories as well as 2lbs.
But all is not lost…. in the words of my old friend Bill,
“Once more unto the breach dear Friends”…….
And so rather than beat myself up by heaping empty platitudes upon my never waning enthusiasm for life and the blatantly obvious, I instead set about starting afresh with a renewed list of outcomes for the not too distant future with the determination to make a commitment to once again recording my efforts in my hitherto discarded blog https://nearlyfittoreallyfit.wordpress.com from 1st June 2019.
The purpose of my blog was a double edged sword, intended to be a source of inspiration and material for a book I could and should write. But also to provide the incentive to persevere by making a commitment not only to myself but to any potential readers, in an attempt to provide and receive encouragement to succeed regardless of Life’s constant interventions.
Take a look back at my earlier stuff while you’re here and you might find some useful information as well as the new things I will be sharing.
So without further ado here are my initial Daily Goals in the exercise department to get myself back on track starting today….. despite the fact that in taking the time to write this blog at 8am has already detracted from my initial intentions lol.
But slow and steady wins the race…..
30 Day Goal for month of June 2019…..
Up by 6am every day and out walking before breakfast.
Resume healthy eating habits, totally eliminating snacks and treats that I have lapsed into enjoying on a far too regular basis.
Do Tens stretches twice a day, do Hip Hop Abs and 1 other exercise DVD everyday, do Jorge Cruise 8 mins a day and Vince Graham workout everyday for the 30 days of June initially then hopefully beyond.
I will be explaining the various workouts over the coming days just in case anyone wants to try them for themselves.
This equates to the following number of routines which I hope to achieve regardless of interruptions with the intention of documenting and completing any omitted activities on the next day if necessary.
Walks = 90 @ 3 times per day.
Tens = 60 @ 2 times per day.
Dvds = 60 @ 2 times per day.
8 mins = 30 @ once per day.
Vince = 30 @ once per day.
The above routines coupled with a healthy eating plan should result in a reasonable weight loss and more toned body comprising of less fat and more lean muscle, which in turn results in more fat burning capabilities with less effort required.
I will be taking my own before and after photos which will be revealed on this blog in October after my Birthday in exactly 20 weeks time.
Between now and then I will be updating my blog as often as I can (hopefully daily), sharing my efforts, experiences and results. Along with lots of Health, Diet, Exercise and Life Management tools, information and resources that I have accumulated over the years.
I hope you will enjoy reading my blog and share with me your own thoughts and experiences and maybe even join in the fun and work towards your own new version of you and go from being Nearly Fit to Really Fit…..
