Fitness .. where do I begin … at the beginning (a very good place to start so Maria Von Trapp sings) .. I am a member of my local gym, one that has just had a massive revamp, one that is now really very modern and has ALL the equipment. I’ve been a member for over a year now .. believe me I have been and I do enjoy it once i’m there .. but its the getting there and motivating myself to go that i’m having difficultly with, I can always come up with a reason as to why I can’t go .. “I need to iron, clean the bath, make soup” (& to be honest I never make soup .. but its a good reason to not go isn’t it? And soup is good for you) ..
I have a whole heap of fitness DVDs, which go back years .. to fair I have used them a few times .. but then something happens and I get out the of routine, it can also be off putting when you have an audience sat on the sofa moaning about not being able to watch TV or play the PS4, and laughing at you huffing and puffing!
But here’s the thing I really to need to start back again (is “need” the correct statement .. I usually only need clothes, shoes, candles, throws, wicker baskets .. you get my drift) .. I want to be fit, healthy .. have that glow and feel good about myself. Also, and I hate to be the one to mention it, but its going to be that festive season soon and I love dressing up for those sort of occasions .. so that is even more motivation surely .. ?
I want to eat healthier too, don’t get me wrong I don’t do too badly at the moment, but I definitely think I could do better, sometimes its just too easy to put those chips and pie in the oven and have a beige meal.
So, am I now feeling more motivated having written this post? Yes I am, I want to be the fit healthy person I see in my head. Will I start going back to the gym & do those dvds when time is lacking even if I have an audience? .. YES YES YES
Wish me luck .. i’ll need it .. those first few sessions when all you ever feel after is stiff and aching .. but I know that it will be worth it … and to keep my mind focused I think i’ll start shopping for those lovely outfits I want to be wearing when the festive season is here .. oh and yes .. of course i’ll update you on my progress.
