this time of year again
after a December full of Christmas parties, holidays full of BBQs topping it off with Australia day and whatnot, mountains of food and litres of beer have been consumed.
so will be getting stuck into my annual Fitness February - something i used a few years ago as a kick-start to dropping 10kg. i have found its a good way to snap the habits of summer revelry and a good detox
1. no soft drink, alcohol
2. no junk food (chips, chocolate, lollies, take away, etc)
3. no eating after 9:30pm
note: this is all in conjunction with my usual fitness routine - 3 weight sessions a week, 1 cardio run and 2 nights of basketball
i do have 2 events that fall in this month that i am allowing myself to partake in...ie Big Day Out this week and a mates 30th. so have decided to start 2 days earlier and the day after those events i am setting myself a penalty, current thought is a 9am cardio session for minimum of an hour. as with anything in my fitness stuff, i dont want it to rule my life so happy to allow myself those days
so yeah, thats the go for now - have taken a "before" photo and hopefully this year i remember/feel confident enough to do an "after" shot.
so if you are feeling sluggish and bloated from too many beers in front of the tennis/cricket/PC, join me!
