Health & Fitness Goals : April

fullsizeoutput_5c2So we might be a few days into April already (oops) but here is a look back at last month’s health & fitness goals and a look at what I want to achieve in April.

Last month..

1. Lunchtime Walks

So I set myself the challenge of going for a lunchtime walk at least twice a week mainly to get myself away from the desk . Now it wasn’t always for a walk but I did manage to eat my lunch away from my desk the majority of the month. Work have created a weekly programme of activity over lunchtimes so I also enjoyed staff sing along and visits to Peppa the dog for pet therapy <3

2. Post Stretches & Cool Down

This has helped me recover after work outs a lot quicker! Should have been doing this from the very start to be honest but oh well, better late than never.

3.  No Coffee 

Well this lasted about 2 and a half weeks – fail.

4. Push Ups

I DID IT! Although I haven’t tried again since – need to get back on that!

This month… 

1.  Healthier lunches and snacks

I find it quite easy to eat healthy breakfasts and dinners but I always lack inspiration for lunch and snacks.  This month I’m hoping to have a delve into my new cookbooks and try some new recipes so that I stay full for longer and if I do need to snack – its not chocolate or crisps.

2. Cleats

So Matt bought me cleats for Christmas and I’ve been too chicken to go out in them so this month I need to face my fear and get on with it. AHHHH.

(may have managed to achieve this before writing it into this post – will share the story with you soon haha) 

3. Cardio

My focus the past 6 weeks has mainly been on weights and improving my upper body strength. This is improving and whilst I’m not going to neglect it, I need to bump cardio back up to the top of my priority list so I don’t undo all my hard work. It’s even more important to push myself now that I’ve finished my personal training sessions.

Wish me luck!

      Thank you! We are only in the second week of May and it’s been pretty hectic so hoping to take better care of myself this week. I need to write May’s goals post actually 🙂

    Great list! All positive and attainable goals. I have several similar, except for coffee – it’s one of life’s little pleasures. I’m never giving that up 🙂
