Week 2 - ready to run at it? Or swim, walk, box, dance...
How did you find your first week? Did you love what you were doing or was it a bit of a chore? Are you a bit bored of what you are you doing and fancy a change? Sometimes it takes a while to find something that we love to do and enjoy. If you don't enjoy it, chances are that you will give up pretty quickly. Have a look here for some options of things to try that fit in with your lifestyle:
Also, have a think about how you like to exercise. Do you like to be inside or outside? With other people or on your own? It's worth doing a checklist of what you prefer to give you a better match.
Personally I love a class for yoga and pilates with an instructor but if I'm walking I would rather be outside than on a treadmill. Sometimes I enjoy a walk with friends (and a chat!) and other times I like a bit of music and my own thoughts. I have also realised very recently that much as I love the idea of running I really prefer a brisk walk!!
Hopefully you have already managed to fit some exercise into your weekly routine. Maybe this week you can look at increasing it slightly if you didn't manage your target. Perhaps add five minutes onto your walk, maybe do a 10 minute strength workout while watching TV or folding the washing (squats and lunges are a great one for this!). Lots of mini workouts that you can have a look out - maybe your target could be adding in one of these each week:
Good luck with week 2 - I know you will all be giving it your best shot. Looking forward to seeing how we all get on next week.
