After a weekend of gluttony, booze and too much fun, Monday has rolled round once again. I am starting the week with lots of good intentions and I have just been to Frame for my weekly Barre class. Barre is designed to work your whole body to increase strength and flexibility and hopefully to create long and lean muscles. It is tough but I always feel amazing afterwards.
The Barre instructor Chris Unwin was excellent and really motivating, he made the class lots of fun. On the way home from the gym I was trying to work out how I can incorporate more exercise into my day-to-day life. I always have great intentions at the start of the week which drifts away with work, friends and being a bit lazy.
My boyfriend is a mad keen cyclist and one of the fittest people I know. He suggested running home from work and so that is something I could try. I will keep you posted on how I get on.
With just over two months until Christmas it would be great to hit the festive season in a healthy frame of mind and fit into my Christmas party dresses. I also love the endorphin rush after exercise and how great I always feel.
Living in London means you walk a lot without even trying, normally about 6 or 7 km a day. I am going to try and walk a bit further on the way to work and go out for a walk at lunchtime.
So LB’s good intentions are the following:
- Walk as much as I can.
- Run my commute once or twice a week.
- Try and fit in as many Frame classes as I can (already booked in one for Thursday), I will let you know how I get on!
I will report back and let you know how I get on.
