Fitness Fun – February 2015 Edition

Running Outside - February Fitness Fun

Last month saw the start of my new fitness series Fitness Fun.  The aim is to share some of the fitness fun I have been enjoying over the past month.

For me the last few months I have really being keeping consistent with my workouts in the gym – Every week hasn’t been perfect but instead of all or nothing I am staying consistent!

Long Term Consistency Quote

The Yoga Fail

Last month I started doing yoga regularly on a morning following YouTube videos.  This month I have only managed to do it a few times.  I have decided to start again and get the full 30 days completed.  I really began to enjoy it and could certainly notice a difference.  I will check back in next month with the intention of keeping up with it and staying consistent!

The Cold Run

For a brief moment in February we saw a little bit of sunshine.  I was at home all day and decided to go for my first outdoor run of the year – In fact it was my first run of any kind for a while.  I did a steady run and walked a couple of times to get my breath back.  The air is still cold this time of year and having asthma that is one of the things which I struggle with.  Since then I have also run a couple of times on the treadmill.  Outdoor is much more fun and I am looking forward to some sunshine and warmer days so I can get outside more!

The New Classes

In February I also tried a few new classes.  I’m still loving circuits, body attack and spinning but I also gave a couple of morning classes a try.  The first aerobics and the second legs, bums and tums.  I don’t think these are classes I will add into my regular routine but I will do them again if I need to mix up my schedule and have to miss my regular classes.

I also went to a taster session of an Adult’s Ballet class.  I danced from the age of 4 to about 14 so I wanted to give it a go as an adult.  I really enjoyed it and although it wasn’t as energetic as some of the other classes I do, I still felt sore the next day.  You can see why ballet dancers always have amazing figures as it’s great for toning!

The Intollerance

There have also been a lot of food changes in the house.  Keil took an intolerance test as he has been struggling to get the final results he’s wanting.  A while ago he shared his weightloss tips on my blog.  He took an intolerance test and the results came back that he was intolerant to quite a lot of the food he was eating such as cow’s milk, eggs and yeast.  February has been a month of working out what he should and shouldn’t eat.  After just a couple of weeks he is finally seeing some of those results.  Eating at home is easy as we cook everything from scratch anyway but going out has certainly been a challenge.  We also experimented with some delicious dairy and egg free brownies – I can’t wait to make these again!

The New Website

Myself and Keil also launched our new fitness and sport website Voltage Sport.  We began with a really tough all-over circuit which we did a few weeks ago.  We are excited to see where this site will take us but it certainly won’t deflect from my personal blog!

So, February has been an interesting month, I think because it is a shorter month as well it doesn’t feel like you can fit as much in!  I am now well on with my countdown to Vegas so March will certainly be good when it comes to fitness!

What fitness fun have you had this month?!  Share below!

    Zumba has been my re-discovery this month, which actually made it to my February favourites post. I’d been years ago and found it ok but have found a new class with an excellent & fun teacher. I started going with a friend and now 3 more have joined us, so it is like a party on a Monday evening!
