#Blogmas 4 My Winter Fitness Goals

If you follow my blog you will know that I got injured in the summer and have been going to physio and trying to recover for a few months now. I’m doing much better now. Obviously my hypermobility is not going to vanish, it’s always going to restrict what I can do in terms of physical activity but over the winter months I really want to start getting fit again.

I’ve set myself a few little goals for December and in January I’ll probably do an update post.

  • Go to the gym 4 times a week – That may sound like a lot when you consider I haven’t been to the gym regularly in months and I’ve been injured but I’ll definitely be easing myself in gently.
  • Do physio/rehab 3 times a week – Over time I’ve actually found some of my physio to be really relaxing so this is as much about unwinding than it is about physical fitness.
  • Walk outside (other than my walk to and from work most days) – Weather permitting, obviously I’m not going to do this when it’s icy and risk injuring myself further, but particularly on bright days I’m going to try and get out for a walk in the middle of the day. Fresh air, day light and movement are a winning combination!

It goes without saying that while I’ve set some loose goals this is meant to be fun and if I’m not enjoying it then I will stop. I don’t want to get sucked in to negative patterns of thinking or forcing myself to exercise ever again.

Do you have any winter fitness goals? Leave them in the comments.

    These are some great goals. I find setting realistic goals and not too many of them all at once is a good starting place, having said that I haven’t been to the gym in a long time either and really need to set some goals of my own. Sophie x

    I am trying to get mybody moving a little more this month. I used to be extremely fit and athletic before my illnesses became severe. I’ve been unable to do any form of exercise for over a year. Walking hurts at the best of times, so it’s been hard. I have my trusty xtrainer in my bedroom and am aiming to do 5 mins light resistence on it each day. My fiance keeps saying sell it but it cost me hundreds and hundreds to buy, as back in the day, I worked out 6 days a week and it saved me so much money by having my own free weights and xtrainer, compared to gym membership. I really need to try build up strength as my muscle wasteage has been severe xx
