When working out doesn’t really feel like working out.

Today I tried a different approach to working out and it definitely worked for me. Previously I watched like crazy at all those figures that flashed across the little cross trainer screen. I found myself struggling, wishing that that count down timer would go quicker. It became a huge mental hurdle.

Not today. Today I set the cross trainer to my desired setting then picked up my ipad, opened Kindle and started reading. Between Jake saying “watch this Mumma” over and over again and reading it wasn’t long before that timer went off and guess what! I kept powering away until I couldn’t go any further. I have no idea how long I stayed on that cross trainer but I did it. I overcame that mental hurdle and pushed through that tired feeling.Β 

It was an awesome feeling so I will definitely try this technique again. πŸ™‚
Would love to hear your tips for pushing yourself.

Cheers Danni

Digging deep

Digging deep to find enough energy to get through today. I’ve already had today’s coffee quota so I’m hanging out to hit the cross trainer in the hope those exercise endorphins can get me through the day. 1.5 litres of water down. πŸ™‚

Must re-train my brain. Currently it is under the impression that sleep would be better.

One day at a time πŸ˜‰

Smashed it and I’m feeling great!

Today is the first day of my new healthy living challenge.
So like all good challenges last night my littlest munchkin woke frequently. Thankfully with some friendly motivation I gave it my everything and now feel great.

I’m going to chalk day one up to a success on the exercise front. On the healthy eating front I have ignored the temptation to reach for those carb filled snacks and managed to drink 3 litres of water already. Hopefully I can keep this up.

Our Village VegieΒ delivery arrived today so that means tonight I will write up this weeks healthy meal plan. I think writing a meal plan will help keep me on track and full of clean, fresh fruit and vegetables.Β 

If you have any great food or exercise tips I would love to hear them πŸ™‚

Cheers Danni

P.s. This was me today πŸ˜‰

Day 19 – Flab2Fab February

Well some how life got crazy and I haven’t been on to blog. We are up to day 19 of our challenge, a day of rest.

My biggest hurdle to keeping on track is remembering to actually JFDI!

So I will part with 2 tips:

1. Pop reminders into your phone for a set time.

2. Do NOT exercise after moisturizing your feet. It is bad for your health πŸ˜‰
