Skipping myself fit

My attempt at skipping for the first time in God knows how many years 😂 It took a few attempts but if you at first don’t succeed then try & try again 💪💃

Managed 20 skips before tripping up lol, it’s a fun workout for the whole body & my skipping rope has a timer fitted which tells me my calories & how many skips I did & only costs £4 😏

Last weekday run

When the sun doesn’t rise until 07.34am & you have to get your regime in before starting work 🙄

One of the things I hate about Autumn/Winter, the dark mornings which means no more 5am runs in the bright sunshine, instead it’s dark runs in a bright jacket & an attached light just so you can been seen whilst running in pitch black which just aint happening so……this is my last weekday run 😑 (which ironically was an amazing one) it’s now back to weekend runs only & using my weekdays for home workouts for the next few months whilst tying to stay as motivated as possible during the upcoming winter months, I GOT THIS!!! No amount of Christmas advertising & festive food is going to stop me which I say every year but the difference this year is that I’ve actually kept it going for nearly a year, I am proud to say that I have dropped two dress sizes and lost around 2 stone, normally I am up and down and I stop and start and even though I have had cheat days and indulged I have still managed to get up and exercise without quitting like I have always been known to do.

So this winter is the test, I always use winter and Christmas as an excuse and then come the new year I gain all that weight again and make yet another new years resolution to lose weight and get in shape, not this time as I’ll be one step again, I’ll already been in shape, be fit and healthy as I am today.

Motivated as ever, stronger, fitter and healthier as ever and winter is not going to stop me and people that let it are making excuses, food is life and for some people so is Christmas but don’t let one day of the year and the build up to it ruin all your hard efforts over the past few months, carry on slaying and reward yourself on that big day, that’s my mission 😁

Lunge workout

One for the legs, lunges, just like squats a killer but has its benefits, one being balance. I have zero balance & squatting/lunges helped me with that as well as yoga, lunges are included in every workout I do.

Each move here is 10 reps x3

Monday motivation

Lil warm up before my “80 day obsession workout” total time this morning, 60 minutes.

With it being darker in the mornings it means I can’t go running at my normal 5am time as it’s pitch black so I’m doing alot more home workouts especially with winter only around the corner but theres still no excuse not to exercise, where’s there’s a will there’s a way, I may even take up evening running 🤔

I always loved morning runs because it’s quite, no one around, whole street and park to yourself, no traffic, no crazy drivers driving through pedestrian crossings as I always encounter, with the evenings I find the total opposite but my problem every winter has been stopping running and putting on weight, especially with the georgous mince pies going on sale however this year it will be different.

Why? Because I’m not going to stop exercising, yes I will indulge and enjoy but I will still train insane and make sure I continue to run, even if it’s later in the morning on weekends, running by far is my fav thing to do and my home workouts have been an example that you dont need to pay for the gym to lose weight, its okay if you enjoy going but for me I never did. So far I have lose 2 stone and dropped nearly 3 dress sizes all from home workouts, running, eating good (no fad diets) and it wasn’t fast results either, it has taken the duration of this year, the right way, not the way that these celebrities advertise dropping a dress size in a week, there’s no rush, enjoy every moment, indulge and celebrate coming this far.
