My #31in31 recap for January 2018!

Posted In: Fitness divider 1 Comment »

It’s been a good month for physical activity. Scratch that, it’s been a great month!

I did close to 35 “sessions” of more than 30 minutes with very good variety. I did a bunch of days with two sessions, even one with 3! The main activities were running, snowshoeing and hockey, as I usually do most in January.

It’s been a lot less running (probably 10 runs or so) then the other #31in31 challenges but I got a lot of other stuff in. I feel great especially since I went full keto all month. No sugar, no refined carbs and no alcohol!

I also doubled down on mobility work, in the hot tub and steam room at the gym, and in my den. I also did a lot of mental work, mostly meditation and some healings. And read some great books such as Radical Acceptance by Tara Brach and Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari.

It helped that I had a bit more time to get this done, especially earlier in the month. I also prioritized sleep all month, averaging more close to 7.5 hours of sleep per night for the month.

This was the month of “Eric” it seems as I did a bit of a reset in some areas of my life. As always, I find some physical activity always helps regulate the mood, especially when it’s done in fresh air.

I’m gonna try to keep it intact as much as I can for the month of February but I know the no alcohol thing will be out the window for the Super Bowl next weekend at the very least!

Here are some of the activities I did this month:

  • Playing hockey
  • Snowshoeing
  • Running
  • Walking
  • Weights
  • Swimming
  • Fat biking
  • Yoga
  • Skating
  • Sledding
  • Rowing
  • Golf
  • Cold/hot exposure

My #31in31 challenge didn’t catch on as much as usual but I’m to blame. I started almost a week late due to a social media fast and then didn’t promote it much. Oh well, you can’t win them all!

What did you get up to in January?

    Very inspiring effort, especially in the cold of our winter.

    My activity was all gym-based, but I doubled down on the stability work, doing planks on Swiss balls… Also tried some new exercises… to broaden my range. Was good on the cardio this month :-) although was bad on the sugars. :-(
