Over the years I’ve always had one of those resolutions that ‘I will get fit’, and this will usually last for a month or so before I give up on it. This year I’m carrying on with my weightloss journey, and found that even if I do eat well, the results are a lot more effective if I do some exercise. I’ve always been a member of a gym (but if I go is another story…), but this year I’m determined to go regularly and do at least and do at least an hours work out a few times a week. So I made a promise to myself that I would pick up my old faded trainers and get my rather large behind down the gym a few times a week.
Now that I’m working I’m finding it easier to find the motivation to go to the gym, and sometimes even find myself looking forward to it. I find that having my routine and set days that I go to the gym helps to motivate me and keep me on track. Lately I’ve even done something a bit crazy to help keep myself motivated, I hired a personal trainer. A personal trainer is something I’ve never really gave a second thought about, in my gym they all seem to be the large body builder types, and for me that isn’t what I’m looking for. It wasn’t until I was chatting with one who’s around my age, who isn’t the huge body builder type, and knew what he was talking about when it came to weightloss that I decided to give it a go. I had a free taster session a few weeks ago and despite being in pain for days, I’ve agreed to start personal training starting this week! I have no idea what I’m getting myself into but I’m hoping it helps with my motivation and I’ll start to see some fitness results! Hopefully this year is the year I actually stick to it and maybe even start to get fit.
