May 2022 Fitness Update

I seem to have blinked and May has been & gone. May has been a nice change of pace for me as with the football ending I have had a bit more time at home to relax rather than be constantly watching games and having full weekends out of the house. It has been great as it has meant that I have been able to spend some time developing healthy habits that I can hopefully continue as life gets busy again. It has definitely been nice to focus on myself and I definitely seeing the benefits of this. So here is how my goals went for the month of May...

Get into the 14 stone bracket 
This was always going to be a big aim and unfortunately I didn't quite get there however, I aren't made about this as it always going to be a big goal to hit and I am happy with the progress I have made over the month. 

Wake up at 5.30am on a weekday to do a workout
I managed this a few times throughout the month but not everyday which I am good with. I was just so tired throughout the month and a few later nights meant that extra hour in bed was very much needed. I am hoping to get back into a routine with this as I know with life picking up again I am going to need an extra hour to get my workout done but for May it just didn't go to plan. 

Go on two runs a week
This another one that didn't go to plan but I aren't mad as I made sure I still got different types of workouts in for a change. I am planning on getting these runs complete very especially as I have signed back up to play football again but right now I am absolutely loving using the weights.

Cook twice a week 
So this hasn't happened either and poor Liam has been left to do the cooking once again however, he has definitely been cooking a lot more often and our takeaways has been cut right back for a change which has been nice as I haven't felt too good after the past few takeaways we have had, I guess my body is changing due to the food I have been consuming. 

Drink 2 ltrs of water minimum a day
Now this one I have basically done everyday and I know that my body is so grateful for it. My skin is getting better day by day and overall I am just feeling so much better. I am less bloated and my regualr headaches are getting a lot less regular as I am actually hydrated for a change. 

Use bike or punch bag daily
This one was hit and miss really as I was on the bike a lot more often but I didn't get to do either every single day as by the time I had done other workouts, worked and blogged I was just absolutely wiped out and ready to just rest. Towards the end of the month though my energy levels have really increased and I think I will be able to get on the bike or use the punch bag a bit more often in the future.

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

Beginning of May weight: 15 stone 7 lb 

End of May weight : 15 stone 5 lb

Total loss for the month : - 2 lb

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

Get into the 14 stone bracket
Workout 4 times a week
Add more fruit into my diet
Continue with minimum 2 ltrs of water a day
Try 1 new form of exercise

So there you go that is how May went, I am really looking forward to seeing what June has in store for me though as I have a holiday, football is back towards the end of the month and also I should be back playing football if all goes to plan. June should definitely be a great month and I am 100% ready to smash it and continue making improvements to myself as I have done in May. 

Total loss for 2022 : - 8 lb

Total loss since start of journey : - 11 lb
