So I thought if you are not too bored of this newbieish gym goer then you may like to read this.
I am actually on my fourth week now and I am loving it. I am loving the feeling of improving my body. Every time I go I push myself and improve. The results are immediate in so far as the next time I go I can do it. When people say that fitness is all in your head they mean it. Because every time I think I can’t do it, the next visit I can!
I recently watch Jamie Genevieve fitness vlog and she said this gem of wisdom
” No one ever regrets going to the gym”
And she is right. I feel good when I leave the gym. I have energy that lasts me till about 3.30 and then I flag a little. My body looks better.
I feel better!
I still have work to do and a few more patches of skin to tone but I am happy about my body. I just need to keep it up.
I love my bed so much, so getting up early, like 5.45am is pretty god damn early.
I look like crap but yesterday even the sun wanted to go back to bed!!
But I have found that I need a gym buddy! I miss Jon laughing at me and introducing me to new exercises and machines. I asked Gav if he would join again but he doesn’t fancy it!
So I aim to go 3-4 times a week and so far I have done it! But I have to go early. Yesterday I came home and had a quick run around the park with Frank and he loved it!
I have to get up
I have to go
But when I get there I love it and it’s worth it. Most of the time I say I am definitely going the next morning. Then that morning I decide whether or not to hit the snooze button.
So this is my little update for my gym fitness. I hate getting up early but the benifits are paying of. I need the motivation of the gym and the support of my gym buddies. I have also started running back from the gym. Not a massive distance but I will lengthen it each week.
There is a park run on Saturday and I should really see if I can do it.
But we will see!
