My fitness resolutions for this year

A New Year sparks a great enthusiasm to hit the gym and get fit. I am no different, I do want to get fit (not just skinny) but being a busy mum who is working part time and studying part time, I sometimes do not have the sufficient time to put aside to exercise (#notproudmoment). However, I have mentioned many times in this blog that exercising even 30 minutes a day boosts my spirit and mood like nothing else. So, without further ado here are my fitness resolutions for this year—a year during which I will be working on myself.

Start Running: One of my long term goals is to run a half marathon. Blame it on all my fit mamma friends who have run marathons like it is no body’s business; I too have got bitten by the running bug. However, there is one small issue I am scared of running. I love yoga and weight training but ask me to run, some strange fear grips me. Truth be told, running intimidates me. So to kick start this resolution, I have started the Couch to 5K programme. It gently eases you to running and is a great programme to follow for even the most time pressed individual.

Get back to the yoga mat: Ever since having my baby, I have been quite irregular with my yoga practice. However, I hope to change that and start regular yoga sessions soon. Good bye back pain and insomnia. Hurray!!

Training the brain: Fitness is definitely not restricted to just physical aspect but mental too. While studying and preparing for my exams later this year is greatly challenging my brains, I also hope to learn a new language. This is something I plan each year hopefully writing this down in public domain will motivate me to get going.

Hula hooping: Every year, I try to learn something new to add on to my exercise repertoire. Not that I master anything but doing a range of exercises is a must not just because my body quickly gets used to one form but also because it makes exercising fun. Hula hooping is something I have wanted to do for a long time but never got to do. I recently read that hula hooping can help mums to get rid of their mummy tummy and give them a mean, tough core. This has given me the final push. And I must say it is FUN!!

Meditation: Although I have been learning yoga for almost three years now, I have never got around to properly learning the art of meditation. Apparently, I am one those unfortunate people who cannot “quiet” their mind. I am slightly ashamed to admit that I can be a bit of worrier and a control freak; hence this year I am consciously learning to let go and accept that nothing is in my control. If I can manage to do even 20 minutes of meditation each day, I will consider this year to be a success.

So, these are my resolutions which will hopefully make me a fitter person not just physically but mentally and emotionally too 🙂
