Sticking With It

The healthy and balanced eating has carried on very well over the last couple of days, with one exemption being a piece of candy which I had along with a cup of coffee on Thursday. Other than that I've been sticking with a few healthy dishes along with an optional small meal and it is beginning to help.

I have been spending so much time at the gym as well, following the program my personal trainer supplied me with. It calls for a greater amount of targeted cardio exercise as I've agreed to two or three 10k runs this coming summer and I need to develop my cardiovascular fitness.

 Two out of five days I will complete a good work out with dumbbells, centering mostly on the upper body in addition tothe core to allow my lower body the chance to rest right after the serious aerobic exercise the day before. On saturdays and sundays I'm looking to improve my flexibility with a mix of pilates and martial arts stretching.

Enjoying the Aussie Open tennis ought to help to keep me focused over the next fortnight. I’m a big fan of the ATP Tour and I’ll make an effort to see as many games as I possibly can. Witnessing those guys competing in strong heat for several hours really helps make me realise just how far I want to go!

My First Week Of Training

I’ve begun a blog site to try and hold my concentration on my weight loss program, and since I actually have stuck to the blueprint since right after the holiday season I must attempt new ways to keep it important.

 Initially I’ll go over the training I’ve carried out thus far. I met my personal trainer in Glasgow to have him put together a program for the health club and I've made 5 out of 5 training sessions up to now.

 It’s a mixture of using the regular fitness equipment like weights and cardio equipment in addition to several things I hadn’t tried out before, such as a few yoga style exercises using resistance bands.

 I didn’t know that I had become as unhealthy as I am. I’ve had a busy 12 months with a newborn baby and a new career keeping me way too busy to consider exercising, however as my kid gets more active I want to be physically fit enough so as to run around after him.

 The diet has actually been proceeding rather well, instead of attempting some dietary fad I have just stuck to having 3 healthy and balanced daily meals and eliminating junk snack foods. I decided it was safer to choose something simple that I'm able to stick with as opposed to something challenging that I would probably quit after a few weeks.

 This will be the earliest of many short records, hopefully I’ll reach my objective quickly and then there isn't going to be any need for me to write.
