Fitness Spring/Summer Wishlist

A big motivator for doing exercise is having a nice bit of kit to do it in.

2014 Fitness Goals

A big part of doing exercise is having a reason or motivation to do so. I used to worry about being heavy for my size, but recently I've come to appreciate that that is to do with my build and body shape as much as the few creeping pounds of fat here and there as my activity levels dropped. Up until my early teens I did gymnastics, training for some 13 hours a week on top of swimming lessons and sailing. I never had to think about motivating myself to do exercise, so when I quit I was suddenly at a loss of what to do next. I took up dance lessons until school commitments got in the way which was fun, and over the last five or six years I've been running on and off. This year, I'm determined to keep up running, because when I'm out there I absolutely love it.
I like to use mediums such as Instagram and Pinterest to motivate myself, and as a result I've decided to post up my fitness goals for the immediate future to keep me on track.
