It’s another week of ticks on the old exercise front. I’m still on course to have exercised every day in January.


I’m still doing the 30 days of Yoga with Adriene and am finding it a pretty doable experience. There are some parts that are getting pretty tricky, but I’m often surprised and delighted that when she speaks of taking things a bit further and demonstrating some of the harder variations, I’m able to do most of them.

I feel like I have the strength to do the poses, it’s the flexibility I struggle with! Hopefully I’ll start to see a few more improvements. Woo.


As for the P90, I’ve moved onto the the next and final stage, which is the 5/6. It’s not too bad at all, to be honest. I didn’t find the workouts difficult and was a bit disappointed in this, but next time I’m going to see if I can make them a bit more intense by moving faster etc.

I’ve got 4 weeks at this and then to move onto the P90x3.

Other news

In other news, I’ve been snowboarding this week which was amazing. I ran 3 miles which was nothing to write home about – I was hoping to run more but the weather has been against me all week. I also changed the domain of this blog, as I felt cycling for beginners wasn’t really want this blog was about. I’m much happier with it now – I just need the bloglovin widget to update to the new URL 🙂

I’ve also eaten vegetarian all week. Now, I’ve had urges to become vegetarian, even vegan, for a long time but I’ve just always found excuses. Having the week off work was a great way to test to waters, as I wouldn’t have to face the difficulties of non-vegetarian food in the staff canteen.

I’m still not decided whether to make this a full time thing, but I’d love to keep it up for a few more weeks and see if I notice any differences in my health.

How was your week?

    Congrats on staying veggie for the week! I still get cravings but it’s all so worth it!
    Snowboarding sounds amazing, I’m so jealous. My fella and I have always wanted to try it!

      Thank you – how long have you been veggie for?

    I’ll be really interested to see how eating vegetarian affects you and your workouts! I went vegetarian at the same time that I started running and working out, so I’ve always wondered if that impacts me in any way, but obviously I have no way of knowing for sure.

      Yeah – I’m wondering too. I’ve not felt much of a difference so far in energy levels but I don’t feel like I ate loads of meat anyway before!

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 7+ years and I’ve started working out 4 years ago, with P90X.
    In the last 4 years I’ve completed P90X a few times, Insanity, P90X3 and now I’m doing P90X3 again.
    In my teens I did karate and ballroom dancing, while I was eating meat and I never had the same energy like I do now (at 32).

      That’s great to hear! I have the P90X and the P90X3, but I think I’ll go for the P90X3 because of the shorter workouts!
