“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give” –Winston Churchill
After my rather depressing post last week I’ve deiced to get back to building a life for myself and investing back into me. I mean, whats the point of FIRE if I am am nothing and nobody at the end?
I thought I’d start by tackling one of the items on my Hierarchy of Needs: Fitness. Since I’ve been really missing my research into FIRE, I devoured all I could about mental health and fitness. I may even do a post on it soon (what kind of FIRE blogger am I?)
So it seems exercise has evolved alot since my gym knicker wearing days of PE in school. There are actual days when to do it, how often and for how long. I’m probably very late to the party on this one. In my youth (you know, pre baby) I just used to do cardio and that was simply as I loved moving my body. Now I am getting older (ahem) I really want to incorporate everything your supposed to be doing plus I have the time to do it now.
I’ve complied results from google, women’s institute of health, NHS, British Heart foundation and self magazine to create the perfect workout routine for me, which looks like this:
I still have some Christmas weight to lose remember? so I’ll be starting with Cardio
I haven’t exercised in an age so I’m going to start off with cardio. Luckily for me and our poor expenses, I have a huge amount of workout DVD’s. As always I’ll keep you updated.
What does your workout routine look like?
