Gym'll Fix It!

Like many others this month I have joined a gym!


I did sign up a few weeks ago but yesterday was the first visit where I tackled the program put together for me!

As you know from my Weight Loss Wednesday posts I don't have an overwhelming drive to loose weight and exercise but would like to be slimmer and toned... and ok a flatter stomach would be nice! The few months before Christmas bored and at home alone it occurred to me I could put that time to good use and do some exercise. Many years ago I belonged to a gym and actually enjoyed popping along for some time with the treadmill

So I signed up to a local gym which is ladies only and on the way home from work. It's not one of the fancy chains, the equipment isn't top of the range but it does the job!

Not one to rush these things yesterday was my first "proper" visit as I want it to fit naturally into my life and didn't want to squeeze it on a free day and then loose interest or let it seem a chore. Thankfully I have a quiet week ahead so I should be able to visit the recommended 3 times!

Wish me luck!

  3. Good luck. It's one of those things you realy enjoy when you get there, it's the "getting there" that's the chore. We've started swimming twice a week and are realy enjoying it plus the baths are only 5 mins away from where we live which helps, Lucey xx

  4. Good luck! I've been a member of Fitness first for 11 or 12 years. I had a year off when we did this house up but other than that, just get on with it. I enjoy getting out, stick my MP3 player on and just get moving. I no longer do weights, its just chill out, zone out time. You are right to let it just be as and when and not timetabled in.

  7. You are good for giving it a go, especially this time of year, I can never muscle up any enthusiasm until it's at least 20 degrees outside LOL. Hope it goes well. xx

  8. Oh well done, and I hope you keep at it! You probably have much more willpower than I do.

  9. Good for you. You have the right idea, the more of a chore it becomes the less enticing the idea of the gym is.
    How are you getting on with the clothes sorting the night before?

  11. Cool, they say do something 20 times and it will become a habit. I think this is true as I have been going to the gym solidly now since last april. some weeks I go once or twice and others 5 times a week. I enjoy it now.

  13. Good luck at the gym! I joined one 3 yrs ago & manage still to go at least twice a week. It is a case of just building it into your routine! Lizzie
