It’s been a while since I blogged about my fitness journey. I am still trying to maitain a good fitness routine every other day, though last week was a little tough. You see, my day job is in social and digital marketing. So there’s a lot of sitting doing research, content development, stats analysis and so on. I had a minor ‘techneck’ problem last week since I had been gearing up for my client’s Valentine’s Day campaigns. My neck and deltoids were a bit sore, although it really could have been prevented had I stretched my neck or changed my sitting position every couple of hours.
Anyway, on days I forced myself to do complete my fitness exercises, I spent more time doing stretches before starting my routine. It’s such a simple thing but it can make a ton of difference. I went on and completed my routine, had a green smoothie and lunch.
I’m really glad that I decided to blog about my fitness journey. It’s a great way for me to reflect on my own healthy/fitness habits and it has helped me recognize simple solutions to problems I perpetually ignored. I know I shouldn’t expect myself to immediately get used to the changes that have been happening in my body and in my life. It might sound a little corny, but I’m growing up and I’m watching myself grow up each and every day.
P.S. Here is my current fitness routine:
- 10 x 5 jump squats
- 1 min x 3 (intervals) cross-body mountain climbers
- 10 x 3 reverse oblique crunch
- 20 x 3 bridges/hip thrust
- 15 x 3 seated oblique twist
- 1 min x 2 (intervals) high knees
I will be incorporating 10-15 x 3 dips for my next workout routine 🙂
Favourite green smoothie right now: spinach, apple, ground cinnamon, yogurt & milk
