What’s your fitness routine been in the last weeks of 2015 darlings? Well, I have to admit that I’ve been down to yoga once a week and taking opportunities to walk as much as possible, but that was it. Oh yes, and I was always running really fast to get my charger, once the battery on my phone indicated only one line. Does that count as cardio? ;-) On the other hand, the intake of all the yummy and sweet delicacies that only December has to offer was high. Aaaand I enjoyed every bit (I mean bite;-) of it without any guilt, because to me, that is a way to feel WUNDERBAR as well. You only need to know when the time to cut down is. Which is about… now. ;-)
It’s been a week since the daylight saving time was introduced. The clock hands were pushed back and we got a long deserved hour more of sleep last Sunday. Yey! But now comes the downside of this phenomenon – the daylight is actually being saved, which means there’s not so much of it any more. When this time of the year begins darlings, my spirit animal is a grizzly bear. :-) Just like the giant teddies, I would love nothing better then to go to bed and wake up in April. ;-)
As promised, in the previous post on this topic, I will be writing about a couple of things I’ve learned throughout years on yoga practice. Of course, those are very personal experiences and perceptions and might be something you agree or disagree with, something new for you, or a thing that you already knew. Still, I would love to share them with you.
I was rather a late bloomer when it comes to yoga. Actually, I took my very first yoga class in my mid- twenties and in all honesty – I completely hated it. About twenty heavy breathing and humming woman with what appeared to me as stupid expressions of bliss on their faces and a teacher that was telling us in a singing mode to focus on the point between our eye browses and clear our minds. I couldn’t wait for it to be over!
What can I tell you about my fitness and health routine…?
Basically, my gym bag is always packed and ready to go. Actually I have two of them, one at home and one at the office. I work out five times a week for an hour and a half. It’s a mixed program combining a cardio sequence on a treadmill, or a rowing machine and a strength sequence for different muscle groups. My diet includes mostly lean meat, fish and steamed vegetables. And very important darlings … no sugar!
Did you really believe that?
