Fitness Update

workout routine for working girls

So I've pretty much given up on Yoga Camp. Terrible I know but the videos are just so long this year that I don't have the time to do them and everything else. I plan on dipping in and out of them when I fancy some yoga but the daily practice just isn't fitting in right now. 

I also seemed to forget about Shayloss half way through the week as shifts (that age old excuse) messed with my plans. 

I did (yay finally, a flippin positive) make it to the gym twice this week and had a great session both times.
  • 20 minute walk/run hiit on the treadmill.
  • Total body kettlebell workout with 8kg kettlebell
  • 2mile cycle in under 9 minutes
I did the same workout both sessions as I was really enjoying it and could actually get the equipment and space I needed. 

I've also been hitting my 10k steps daily and won another weekly step count challenge, taking a whopping 82,500 steps in 5 days! Lunch time walks really helped boost my count, and it was great to get out and get some fresh air for 15 minutes! 

Looking at possibly trying a class this week for some new routine ideas and, after finishing Flesh and Bone I really want to try a ballet bar/cardio bar workout! I've been using my FitBit app a lot more, and am also looking at an app called Bounts that pays you for working out. Hopefully, a little more on that next week when I've had a play around with it.

How did you do this week?

Until next time, 


  1. I'm really aiming to get on top of my steps this week, I've noticed they have been seriously lacking in Nov/Dec so time to get them back! I've been doing yoga camp but more of just when I can every few days, I'm enjoying them more that way!

    1. I think thats how I'm going to approach the rest of Yoga camp, just as and when I can a few times a week. Daily practice is great but I just can't fit it in right now, and I have nothing I can give up to make room for more Yoga!

  2. My step counter is driving me insane as I do a crazy amount of walking on my work days but on my days off not so much. I used to love the gym but really fell out of love with it and as I'm studying and working full time don't currently have the time. When my course is done I will be back with a vengeance! Awesome that you are loving working out - it really is something to trigger the happy in people! Endorphins and all that!

    How is the fit bit working out for you? I really want to get one xx
