May Health & Fitness Chat

I feel like quite a lot has changed in my life since my last health and fitness chat, and if you’ve been reading my blog since then you’ll know it’s because I’ve cut about 90% of wheat and gluten problems out of my diet. This has cured me of my chronic stomach pain, which is a huge relief. Thankfully I’m not coeliac, so I can reduce my wheat intake but still have it from time to time without worrying about it too much. Here’s how I went with my goals for April:

– Keep a daily food journal and track any side effects I have from the foods I’m eating
– Start utilising the gym again
– Stretch my hamstrings after every workout
– Cut down on chocolate (Easter was a killer)
– Pick up my water intake again

– Switch to decaf tea 50% of the time

Not too bad all up. In general, my health has been on the mend. My fitness, however, has been lacking quite a bit. This is mostly because Sebastian has been unable to do any kind of physical exercise, due to a leg injury that he had surgery on last week. Thankfully this means he’ll be back on track for exercise soon enough, and I won’t feel so bad ducking off for an hour or so to get a workout in at night. Here are my goals for the next month:

– Try and cut back on processed ingredients in our dinners
– Write up a fitness goals list/chart for the next few months
– Look at joining a gym in our local area
– Stretch my hamstrings after every workout (I’ll need to continue doing this for a while)
– Eat more fruit
– Try a local pilates class

What are your fitness goals for the month?
