THE FITNESS SCHEDULE THAT’S WORKING FOR ME RIGHT NOW

 

Once again, I’m in a chatty mood. So I turn to the blog in the hopes someone might find this vaguely interesting (or is a bit nosey, like me) and talk about my fitness routine at the moment.

No-one has asked for this post, so I’ll keep it relatively short and sweet so as to not bore the socks off you and the dog.

Basically, I’m really enjoying the exercise routine I have now.

It’s flexible, but structured. Meaning I don’t get bored as I’m always doing something different, but also that if I need a day off, I can easily have one.

So what does it look like?

Monday nights, we have my yoga class, probably my favourite part of the week. It’s set in a little local Church meaning the vibe is SO calm and relaxing, plus it’s only a 2 minute walk away for me too.

On Wednesday evenings I hit the gym doing around 30 minutes of cardio, then spending some time doing different exercises with light weights, and mat body work such as planks, squats etc.

Fridays is swimming day! It makes me so happy that I now go every week, because there’s nothing quite like being in the water, for me anyway. I usually spend a good half hour in there, and let me tell you, swimming is NO JOKE. It makes me feel pretty damn tired afterwards and also, so so hungry that I must eat everything in sight.

For the rest of the week I either do a Yoga with Adriene video, or make up my own yoga practice on the mat. I always try to get on there daily as it does a great job of balancing me out, both physically and mentally. This routine really works for me, and doesn’t feel too little, or too much.

So there we have it! Loving this routine at the moment and long may it continue.

 

What’s your fitness routine looking like lately? I would be super interested to hear!

  • I LOVE your routine! It sounds lovely and relaxing. I think working out and having a routine is so much easier when you’re doing things you actually enjoy. I used to try to run a couple times a week and frequently ended up skipping it because I HATED it. Now that I do a combination of yoga, going on long walks, and doing circuit workouts on YouTube, I rarely skip my workout. Lovely post, friend. xx

      Long walks are the best! Sometimes I think that can be the best workout! xx

    I do yoga in the morning and go for a walk whenever possible. I’m happy with the results and the energy I get from the yoga sessions followed by a meditation. It’s amazing, isn’t it? 🙂

      It definitely is- hi yoga friend! 🙂

  • That sounds nice and manageable. I’m finding that there aren’t enough hours in a day to create an actual ‘routine’ around my fitness, I just try and fit it in the best I can. I am lucky enough though to have a part time job where I run around and heavy lift things for 8 hours straight sometimes, basically like being at the gym. I looooove yoga with Adriene though and try and complete a video once every few days. ✨Marbl☾☽Moon

      Ohhh that sounds tough! It’s good to have an active job though isn’t it? xx

  • I loved reading this post! I’m not very good at fitness at all. Lately I have been trying to do more because I find working out easier in the summer months, so I’ve been doing some short workouts from home and I even did some yoga yesterday, but I can never get into it. I just don’t think it’s for me, which is completely ok!x

      Totally, different things work best for different people! Maybe try Pilates? xx

  • Honestly, I have never been a huge fan of working out. But, I’ve started to take free classes at Lululemon and my friends have convince me to join the gym to exercise with them.
