Hello fellow cookie monsters! After been sick with what was the longest flu/chest infection/head cold/cough EVER – I am getting back into the gym. I pretty much had a three week break from the gym and during that time I had two football trainings with two different teams BUT that’s a story for another day…or another paragraph read on!!
After working my butt off for weeks on end I lost 8 pound! HIGH FIVE KAT! I was so thrilled with myself. I was feeling good and looking even better (I joke). I got sick then and all my efforts seemed like a million years ago and I thought I would find it difficult to get off my arse (sorry for bluntness) and get going again. WELL, I type this as I sit in absolute agony. Yep, I went back to the gym last night!
My first class back was a pump class, an hour long version as well as I went after work. We now have a Goodlife gym across from our apartment meaning I can go there as well. No excuses now eh!! 😉 The class was sooo tough but once I got into it I was like, I’ve missed this so much! The couch potato in me was so surprised. I kept motivated thinking about having a hot bod and I finished out the class. I managed to wobble home; my legs complete jelly and had a nice healthy salad for dinner. WHO AM I!!? 😀
Although I’m in the horrors now, I love that I know and can tell how hard I worked myself last night! I took tonight off to give my muscles a rest before football tomorrow night. I joined a different team from my last post. This new team are very fit and very successful out here and it’s gonna be a huge challenge for me personally to get to their level. I had my first training with them last week and although my chest acted up (following the viral infection), I kept going and had a really great time! It even rained a little and I felt like I was back in good ol’ Ballykelly!!
We have an swimming pool in our apartment building and they are currently filling it so I’m excited to be able to take a dip after work or even when my muscles get tight from the exercise so on nights like tonight a swim may do me the world of good.
I’m planning on going to a class on Thursday eve as well, they have some dance fitness classes so I might give one of them a try and I’m hoping to get to a Kombat class at the weekend. After my three week break I’m determined to stay on top of things and tone my lil body up! Although I was afraid to check the weighing scales yesterday…
Here’s to keeping motivated! Whooop!
Till next time!
