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?

  1. My goals include popping a few yoga mornings into my month as I’ve been lazy as anything, and to walk Charlie more. My sister was very ill and she is normally my walking buddy so I’ve fallen off the wagon in that respect, was looking after her kids and visiting her in hospital so walking wasn’t on my mind at all and my body is feeling that!
