I’m now two months into my Fit By 30 goal and this month I gave it a really big push!
June was not so fantastic, a lot of work commitments and a trip to Melbourne meant lots for food and wine. July was looking easier in terms of work and social life, so I knew this month I’d be able to give it a huge nudge.
First up I committed to Dry July, which meant no alcohol for the whole month. I also managed to raise some money for cancer charities in New Zealand so it was totally worth it. I actually found it a lot easier than I expected. Anyone that knows me, knows I love a cheeky glass of wine (or 3), so I was half expecting to be missing it. However I didn’t really, there were only a handful of times when I wanted a drink, and that was a beer after gardening all weekend and after moving house.
My gym work this month was awesome. I managed to work out 19 days out of 31 which is actually a record for me. I even hit a new personal best on the dead lift of 45kg so I am building some great strength.
I am also seeing some changes in my body, I can see and feel my muscles starting to peek through under the skin. Weight wise I have only lost 100 grams this month, BUT I do looked a lot more toned and I feel stronger so this doesn’t worry me.
Number of Workout Days: 19!
September I’ll share a photo!
Loving This Month
- Another personal best on the dead lift of 45kg!
- HIIT on the bike, makes time go faster than normal pedaling.
- My shoulder has improved, no more pain.
Not Loving This Month
- Having to change gyms because I moved areas, I get anxious about not knowing where things are.
- 5am wake ups, it never gets easier.
- The cold mornings with frosty windscreens.
Check out some of my favourite workout pants. I love a longer leg and neutral colours.
