Getting my fitness life together edition. For a while, I was doing various activities to maintain my general fitness wellbeing; however, most of these have fallen by the wayside. This is a list to get me back on track . . . hopefully.
-Really get into my 21-day fix program. I kind of had some set backs this week with this plan because my biggest problem is late-night snacking. Although my eating plan has been a little bit of a struggle, I have not been “happy houring” as much.
-Foam roll and stretch EVERY night.
-Revisit my plank and pushup challenge. At one point, I was up to 2.5 min planks. Now, I probably would not be able to hold a plank for more than 15 seconds. Ok, I’m lying . . . I probably would not be able to hold a plank for more than 10 seconds 😉
-I have noticed soreness in my hip flexors especially while doing Insanity. I realized that I rarely use my standing desk set up in my office. Going forward, I want to use the standing feature for at least 10 minutes every hours.
-Stop/reducing smoking. One trick – actually use the stairs in my office building. Since my office is on the 12th floor, I will probably smoke less cigs during working hours knowing that I have to climb up 12 flights of stairs . . . in a mask.
-Start (re)engaging with my running groups. I cannot remember the last time I attended a running event with any of my three running groups. Hell . . . one of them (Run and Chug) is associated with drinking beer. This past weekend, one group even ran the last 20 miles the NYC Marathon route and provided water stations. Then again, I teach on Sat and Sun so I would not been able to participate in that event.
-Take better care of my crusty feet. While I soak and scrape my feet on a near weekly basis, I have not been applying my foot cream on a daily basis.
-GET MORE SLEEP.
-Start doing Yoga on a daily basis.
-Return to doing some sort of workout (Insanity or Cardio Boxing) during my lunch hour.
-Prepare my lunch and lay out my workout clothes for the next day as soon as I arrive home from work.
While this is a long laundry list of items, I think most can be accomplished; it’s just a question of better time management.
