September 2021 Fitness Update

September ended up turning into a pretty busy month with my birthday, the football and a lot of other bits going on which unfortunately also made my weight loss and fitness journey derail that little bit more. The month really didn't go to plan at all and I am a bit disappointed but at the end of the day I have really enjoyed myself throughout the month so I guess it isn't all too bad. So here is a look at how my goals for September went...

Go boxing at least 3 times in the month 
I actually managed to go to 3 boxing sessions throughout the month and they all went quite well. I am really loving boxing at the moment and it could very easily become one of my favourite things the more that I go. 

 Go to football at least twice 
Unfortunately I only managed to get to one football session for the month but it was definitely a fun one. Fingers crossed I can start going to more very soon though. 

Lose 6lbs 

Well it is safe to say this one definitely didn't happen. I actually put on half of this weight instead of losing it which is definitely annoying. I am hoping that the next time around this is a loss instead of a gain. 

Go for a long walk once a week
Due to getting far too busier and in fact a lot busier than I expected so walks were put on hold. I definitely want to try get on more walks soon though and try schedule them in so I aren't neglecting them anymore. 

Consume less alcohol 
I definitely did this towards the back end of the month but for the first half of the month I definitely continued to go over board as I celebrated my birthday. I am glad I managed to get this back on track as the month went on though. 

Try cook some different healthier meals
I managed to cook quite a bit more than I usually would and it actually enjoyed cooking a lot more than I previously did. I am definitely going to try keep this up. 

Use the exercise bike a whole lot more
Just like with going on walks I didn't have the time to get on the exercise but I have a bit of a plan when it comes to incorporating it into my workouts once more. I am going to start going on it whilst I am watching the TV so that I can get as much use out of it as possible.

      So here is how my weight loss went for September...

Beginning of August weight : 15 stone 8 lb 

End of August weight : 15 stone 10 lb

Total loss for the month : +3 lb

So here are the goals I am making for myself to hopefully smash in October ...

Cook at least 1 new meal 
Go boxing 4 times during the month
Go to football 4 times during the month 
Lose 8lbs 
Try get on more walks 

Once again the month really didn't go to plan however, I am determined that the rest of this year is going to head in the right direction and that I am finally going to start seeing those all important results once again.  The rest of the year is going to be a big step into the right direction for the rest of my weight loss journey. 

Total loss for 2021 : - 0 lb 

Total loss since start of journey : - 6 lb
