From Fat to Fit – Week 5 (21.01.14)

This week I managed to fit in quite a lot of exercise which I felt good for doing but it did tire me out a bit more than I thought it would.
I am going to listen to my body and if I feel it is too much then I will pull back a little. I don’t want to do too much too soon as that will only set me back. My aim is to make consistent gains even if they are very small ones rather than go at it hammer and tongs and whack myself out completely.

My ‘Mummy Motivator’ workouts this week

Monday 21.01.14
Full circuit 5k brisk walk round the lake in total.

Broken up into sections

5 X squats raising arms above head holding each squat 10 seconds

Saturday 26.01.14
Family walk around Botanical Gardens

Fast running friend joined me on my workouts this week, which was good as I don’t feel quite so stupid doing it on my own and it makes me work harder and make sure I am doing it properly.

You may note I haven’t posted my stats this week because the numbers haven’t changed!
Not really it would be quite boring posting them every week and a week isn’t long enough to see a change so instead I will post my stats monthly.

Until next time 🙂
