At the start of this year I made significant improvements in staying active and taking care of my physical wellness. I did this through going to the gym at least 2 times a week and doing morning runs every Saturday. However after we got placed under lockdown all that progress halted and I had to resort to doing cardio and muscle circuits at home as seen in my previous activity post. However I wasn’t that strict with myself in maintaining to the schedule I set for myself as I found myself lacking the motivation to do so.
Although since my last post regarding activity gyms have reopened and this time I decided to follow through with a proper training program. This time I decide to attended the gym with a minimum of 3 times a week and do 15 minutes of skipping every morning. I wanted to push myself further as well as putting up a challenge. Throughout this new process I have definitely found it to be enjoyable and is something that I’am pushing to maintain. I still have a long way to go in terms of being at the level of fitness that I want to be at but I feel that this is a good start in the right direction.
I found that this implementation of the schedule to be much more effective and enjoyable, since using this schedule I have lost 2kg and I feel much better about myself.
In terms of meeting the CAS learning outcomes, I think that I’ve been able to achieve a throughout this process. Firstly I think that I have shown perseverance and commitment particularly during the second phase of the process. Like I said before I could have had been more committed at the start of my process, however recently I would say that I have been significantly more persistent and motivated to do better. I achieved this by creating a firm schedule and an effective training program. In addition I also feel like was able to challenge and develop on my skills as an individual. These are in the form on improving and developing on my own physical wellness skills, these can be seen in terms of improving on my pb on different machines and running time.
