#100ActiveDays – Day 82

What can you achieve in 7 minutes?

A LOT!  One of the best things about New Year is all the new fitness DVD’s that come onto the market – including yet another beauty from my old favourite Davina McCall.  Each section is 7 minutes plus the warm up.  I honestly can’t tell you how much I ache now.  Her new personal trainer seems awesome as well.  Can’t wait to give more of the sections a go!

Day 71 – Change of Plans

I was going to go to Zumba for the first time tonight but husband didn’t get back in time to take over with the kids so Davina it was!

I actually did the core workout but today the muscles in my bum are equally painful. She works you hard that Davina!!

It’s cold, it’s dark, it’s miserable, it’s not exercise outside weather, but no drama – I have Davina which I am still loving.  I would quite like to get some more exercise DVD’s though as I find them really good in this weather, around the kids etc… so please leave a message in the comments box below and let me know!

Thanks peeps x

So hubby is out for a ‘quick drink after work’ read; out for the duration – so I am home with the kids and have been with my daughter all day meaning I haven’t been able to get out to exercise but no drama!  Super-Davina fitness dvd to the rescue again!

Plus, I’m able to watch the pure shite on TV that I love once I flopped onto the sofa afterwards = joy!!

Day 7 and its Davina Fit in 15 whilst the kids eat their breakfast.  I don’t always find it easy fitting exercise around life so I find this DVD amazing.  But don’t be fooled into thinking, only 15 minutes,  it’s exhausting!  And I am generally a massive fan of Davina and her fitness DVD’s.  As I literally didn’t fit in any exercise outside the normal chasing after kids I did two this morning!!

Easy Quick Healthy Tip 3 – Get A Bit of Davina in Your Life

I love Davina, I think I have all her DVD’s because I think they are fab, when I have the time.  I am one of the many who says…. but I don’t have time for exercise!  And its true, I really don’t… really, but that is what I am thrilled to bits with her latest release which has just arrived.  Why do I love it so much?  Each section is only 15 minutes, so only I need 15 minutes of time a day…. think I can just about manage that?!

Kick Starting the Health Drive

Journey Back to Health

After a particularly bad week last week I have really picked up the pace to get my journey back t0 health moving for the Mind, Body & Soul.  So what have I done….

1.  I went to see my GP about the fact I emotionally was feeling like I couldn’t do it any longer.  As anyone who know’s me will tell you, I have very little positive comments about my GP surgery but I have to say I was really impressed.  He took me very seriously I was immediately referred & contacted by a specialist.  After a one hour phone consultation he suggested Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which I will be starting shortly.

2.  My bike has been removed from it’s hiding place in the shed, dusted off & even ridden.  It was shocking how quickly I was tired but it was also the first time I have ridden my bike since my operation in August 2012 so to be expected.  Mr B & I have also made a commitment to doing some exercise 3 times a week & getting out more for long walks / bike rides etc at the weekends.  This started last night with a DVD in the living room.  So much more fun doing it with someone else so really pleased he is doing it with me.

3.  I have booked in with a Nutritionist, The Fairy Food Mother.  Now I’m not going to lie, I have happily been putting this off because quite frankly I am addicted to Coca-Cola – there I have said it, my name is Nicola & I am an addict – & I know the first thing she is going to tell me is to give up my beloved.  But it is bull by the horns time so bring it.

4.  This also bring me nicely onto point number 4. I am arranging to see a Hypnotherapist to help with what really can only be called an addiction to sugar & all things unhealthy, so that I can really get stuck into my new health lifestyle.

Even though I haven’t actually done anything yet I cannot tell you how much better I feel.  Just putting positive steps into place has made me feel more in control & uplifted.  It has also banished the feeling that there is no point, I will never feel well again because I will, I just have to make it happen a little more.

Not bad for a week!  I will keep you updated with the progress of all mentioned above but if you are thinking that you want to make changes but aren’t sure where to start…

Just do what I did.  Think about what is the most important & start putting in positive steps to make that thing happen / better for you.

Wishing you love, health & happiness

Nicola
