Oh, we just love the Summer. Sunny (sometimes) long and balmy evenings, endless barbecues, summer drinks and ice cream. Only there’s a problem. My jeans are screaming out, “For the love of lycra woman, eat a salad. Please!”.
Now don’t get me wrong, I train. I train four or five times a week, I work hard to stay fit. I’m boot camping, running, yoga-ing and doing pilates like my life depends on it (suppose it does when you think about it). You can find out more about our workouts here>>
But here’s the thing. Exercise won’t get you the results you need alone – it’s what we put into our bodies which makes the biggest difference.
Now, I’m not telling you this to make you feel bad. I’m writing this as a reality check to myself. Summer is amazing, but why oh why can’t I get through without piling on the Pimms pounds. So, here it is – my public declaration that it’s time to push the September reset button.
TODAY = DAY ONE!
What I also need is accountability, so I’ll be writing down my fitness goals and will share my journey with you over the next six weeks. Feel free to join me in my mission to look and feel fabulous at 40 (have we told you, we’re off to Ibiza on Thursday?!).
I’ve been having some real problems with my back over the last two months, and have just been diagnosed with something called Spondylosis, which as far as I understand is basically a sticky out vertebra. The reason behind this is that two major muscles are weak in my body: my glutes (yes, I have Mum-bum) and one side of my lower abs (caused by those pesky babies) which makes me majorly wonky.
Here’s my focus for the next 6 weeks:
- Healthy eating plan to get me in my best shape and banish the summer wobble
- Focus on isolating and strengthening my glutes
- Focus on isolating a strengthening my core
Want to join me? We’ve set up a new Fitness Group over on Facebook to help motivate you lovely mummies to get fit, so head on over and join us!
Whatever you’d like to achieve, let’s do this. We’re in this together, right?
Happy Monday, lovely people. Tahlia x
