March 2022 Fitness Update

Well to say March was a mixed busy month would be the understatement of the century. There was so much going on through the month I don't know how I kept up, throw in my surgery to the mix and honestly I am glad to be heading into April with a fresh slate. March had birthdays, events and surgery but in terms of the fitness and weight loss journey I still made it a good one. So here is how March's goals went... 

Workout 4 times a week up until my surgery
Unfortunately due to a variety of reasons this didn't exactly go to plan however, I did get a fair few workouts in before the surgery and I think that really helped with the results I got for the month. 

Have active recovery time after surgery (not lounging on sofa for a week) 
This one did not happen and to be honest I think I was a bit hopeful when it came to setting this goal. Instead I had a week in bed as I had 0 energy and was in a lot of pain. 

No takeaways (only planned meals out which can't be helped) 
A mix of laziness, lack of planning and being ill led to us having far too many takeaways which has annoyed me if I am honest but it is time to get back on track and eat much better.

Take lunches to work everyday
I manged to do this quite a bit although I didn't manage everyday as I had hoped. It was nice saving a fair bit of month though and having meals I genuinely enjoyed rather than the same meal deal everyday. 

Complete my daily challenge every day 
This is another goal that didn't go to plan thanks to a lack of time and preparation however, I think I am going to aim to do this goal in May when I get the all clear from the hospital. 

Drink minimum 2ltrs of water a day
I did this for the majority of the month and I felt so much better for it, I am going to be keeping up with this habit for a long time as I am certainly feeling the benefits of it. 

Lose 3lb
As you will see I very narrowly missed out on this but I know I am more than capable of achieving this target and I can't wait to see what April has in store for me as I think I might finally manage this one.  

So here is how March looked on the scales...

Beginning of March weight: 15 stone 11 lb 

End of March weight : 15 stone 9 lb

Total loss for the month : - 2 lb

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

- Lose 3lb 
- Increase my daily steps
- Use the punch bag or exercise bike daily
- Only 2 takeaways throughout the month
- Long walk every weekend
- Go on 4 runs throughout the month

I am really looking forward to seeing how things progress in April as I think if everything goes to plan I could see some brilliant results by the end of the month. I have also restarted the Gymshark 66 so this will help me achieve some good results too if all goes to plan. March was a good month but lets make April even better. 

Total loss for 2022 : - 4 lb

Total loss since start of journey : - 7 lb
