Keep Going in December

Realfoodieclub profile image

Have you got a plan to keep your fitness levels up over December this year. For some it is the cold, dark and rain that keeps us indoors, for some it is too many late nights and feeling shattered the next day.

Or Is it the chance to have some little treats and not worry too much about the Waistline that gets you out the door, or do you need a little Me time when the house is full.

This is time of year there are so many reasons to stay in and still so many reasons to go out.

So the challenge is set your self a plan that works for you and try to stick to it.

December 1- 3rd write your plan down and post it on here. You know once it is in writing it matters 😀

( make the plan achievable for you, don’t stretch your self too much and take into consideration everything that is going on)

It could be:-

I will try to step out the door 2-3 times a week no matter for how long

I will try to go for at least a 10 min walk ....... times a week.

I will go for a long walk ....... a week

Every week I will put a catch up post. So we can all say how we are doing.

Catch up Posts dates.

4th to the 10th December

11th to the 17th December

Going to do a long walk once a week and got a belter tomorrow as have to walk into town to collect my specs walk is about 3 miles according to Bing maps.

That sounds like a great walk, hope the weather holds out for you.

I'm going to aim for a good walk every Sunday. Usually on workdays I get a fair bit of walking in to and from the transit stops, and Saturdays I always do Parkruns. Sundays seem to fall by the wayside, so if I can make it an effort to get the steps in this month with the variable weather I'd be really happy.

The weather is a stumbling block isn’t it. Hehe I really have to force myself out when it’s really cold 😀. Good luck with your week.

I had been my Fitbit and was doing 10,000 a day 5th oct I had a bad fall and have been recovering slowly. Now back on track and to achieve my 10,000 each day I get off the bus 10 stops early and walk to work this gives me a fair chunk, and the return trip home gives me my target of 10,000 plus and the target time for walking is 53 mins per day ...

Sorry about your fall glad your feeling better, take it steady and build up slowly to protect that recovering injury.

I will try to step out the door every day no matter for how long.

I'm keeping my steps target at 10,000, and will do at least 1 mile of that in front of the TV every day.

That sounds like a sensible plan, getting out the door is the hardest part, once you are out there you might as well keep going 😀.

Absolutely right Realfoodieclub! Managed my 10,000 today, so far so good!

I'm aiming to walk 3 days a week - for as far as I feel comfortable. Hopefully it'll be around 2000 steps a day! It's just so hard in the cold, damp weather when the arthritis kicks in - but I'm staying positive!

The weather is an issue so I will walk around my house for 10 min a day.
