Power Through the Jump Lunges

 So, week two is complete and it was so much harder than I expected! I powered through trying to sweat out a cold before it really hit me, but in the process only managed two LISS days instead of my planned 3-4.

Monday’s leg day was so much harder than the previous week with jump lunges, although I really found skipping to be a great exercise. I ended up using the skipping to catch my breath before the next move!

For my LISS this week, I took part in an hour long yoga class on Tuesday and completed a 40 minute walk to end the week off, on Sunday.Photo 18-01-2015 12 50 01 pm

I’m new to yoga and I absolutely loved it again. I really want to keep at it and try and improve on my balance and flexibility. At the age of 22, I’m horrible inflexible and have made a decision to improve on this whilst I can!

Balance is also one thing I really struggle with on exercises, such as jump lunges, so I’m hoping the two together, I will see a real improvement over the 12 weeks.

I’m definitely an evening girl when it comes to any exercise. When I workout in the evenings, I go straight from work, so I always try to have a banana about 1 hour before my workout for a slow release of energy. I missed this on Friday and really noticed a difference by the last circuit, I was drained and could barely lift my legs for a burpee! Photo 16-01-2015 3 35 41 pm

I’m going to start keeping track of my nutrition using fitness pal as of this week. I generally eat quite healthily and over the last year have become really aware of what I was eating and how much. However, I still have days where I will divulge in meals out, sweet treats and drink alcohol some weekends. Fitness Pal is a great app to track your exercise, food and drink so I’ll be pushing by myself back into this and keeping an eye on those sweet snacks!

Onto the 3rd week and I’m really excited to see how I find it in comparison to the first!

    Congrats on pushing through two tough weeks. New to blogging myself and came across your site. Keep working at your health and nutrition. Sounds like you’re making good progress. Remember that fitness and health is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. Are you familiar with Isagenix? The best nutrition I’ve found to fuel my body, make me leaner and it got rid of some stomach challenges I had. Happy to share more if you’re interested.
