July Health & Fitness Chat

Long time no health & fitness chat! Well, it’s been a couple of months now. Which I guess in the grand scheme of how quickly this year this going isn’t really that much time at all. I’ve been making some progress in this department, so here’s how I went with the last set of goals I set in May

– 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
– Eat more fruit
– Try a local pilates class

I’m struggling with the fruit thing because at this stage there isn’t much in-season fruit that I like that doesn’t give me stomach issues. Mandarins are the devils fruit but it’s really all I’ve been able to buy recently that hasn’t cost me an arm and a leg (out of season green grapes, I’m looking at you). So fruit has stopped being a priority for me. I’m still making headway in cutting out a lot of processed foods in our evening meals, so that’s good. It just means making a lot of stuff from scratch (rather than using jar sauces, etc), which usually tastes better anyway. Here are my goals for this month:

– Get a personalised fitness plan with my personal trainer
– Go to the gym 3-4 times a week
– Stick to Tuesday/Saturday “treat” days
– Continue to eat gluten free 90% of the time
– Cut back on coffee intake (this has crept up a bit since I started drinking lactose free milk)

How are you all going with your health & fitness goals for this year so far? Can you believe we’re halfway through the year already? Mental.
