The start of a new month, here we go! February is done and dusted and that is positive for so many reasons but one is that we are now a month closer to my wedding. There are many things to look forward to this month – like my half birthday on the 27th – and a four-day long weekend at the start of April for Easter. But this post is not about the future, let’s take a look back at the last four weeks.
In the last year I have done more home workouts than I have in my entire life but things were getting a bit stale. Thus on February 1st I shared six things that I was going to try and achieve in February and I want to run down each one of these February Fitness goals today to see how I did. And as all posts need to have photos, here are some shots of my workout yesterday wearing the ASOS 4505 Sports Bra in printed tie dye check and the matching leggings:
1. Drink at Least 100oz Water Daily I found this to be a real struggle. That is A LOT of water. It found it helpful when I started filling up my 32oz Hydroflask but even three of those a day seemed a bit unmanageable. I found it was easier to put lemon juice in it and something I am still going to work on in March.
2. Sweat Everyday This was probably the easiest one on the list. At the start of February I started the month with 380 Peloton workouts and it is crazy, but I am no sup to 485 workouts! To be fair, that counts five minute cool downs and meditation sessions but all in that was 26 hours and 18 minutes of Peloton exercise and that does not count the time Mark and I spent walking and biking outside.
3. Take More Cross-Training Classes Than Cycling. Of those 105 workouts only 37 of those were spin classes. And even when you take out the mediation (which I really do not count as workouts, especially the sleep meditation ones) I was still at 41% cycling, 59% other. So this one I crushed.
4. Workout (Virtually) with a Friend at Least Once a Week. Four weeks and six friend workouts means I was successful at this one too. I must admit though, not all of the workouts were virtual – I was able to meet with a few friends for power walks in London which is even better than virtual ones!
5. Make Smart Food Choices, but Nothing is Off Limits. This one is hard to judge but I would say yes, I managed to do this. I consciously choose breakfasts with more finer to help me feel full, had less wine than normal, and a few nights chose frozen fruit over ice cream.
6. Complete the 4-Week Peloton Core Challenge. Another one I was definitely able to accomplish – I did the 20 Emma Lovewell core courses on Peloton app. The classes got progressively hard as the sessions wore on and even while completing the last session the finishing bicycle crunches of slow-slow-fast-fast-fast-fast were still crazy hard.
Any questions about my February fitness update?
