Welcome to December, the most delicious month of the year!
I love the Christmas season. I love decorating the house and watching cheesy movies with the kids. I love the magic that surrounds it all.
I also love fruit mince pies, turkey, candy canes, chocolate and all the other yums that come with the season.
I have a half marathon next weekend, so that’s okay for this week but it’s really easy to slide into inactivity once the holidays start.
So I have a plan, and maybe you’d like to make a similar one for yourself?
I’m hoping to continue getting in three runs a week, but after my half I’m looking forward to my long runs being not quite so long for a while.
But that aside, my plan is to move for at least 30 minutes five days a week.
That’s it. Easy right?
Even with our crazy busy December schedule, I can find and utilise 30 minutes every weekday to move my body.
Some days I will run. Some days I might walk or ride the bike. I’ll be doing the squat challenge and maybe some days I’ll do a little home circuit with things like jumping jacks, lunges, push ups, planks, running on the spot, tricep dips and other such things to change it all up a bit.
By being flexible I’ll be able to choose things I can do with the kids when they are home for school holidays, and what I might get to do on my own some days as well.
Regardless of what I do, I WILL move for 600 minutes based on 30 minutes five days a week.
If you are new here, hopefully this sounds like a really achievable starting point that you might like to try yourself?
