That’s that and what now?
As you can see, my determination to lose weight the two and half years ago wilted down just about as fast as my determination to write my first blog… Not a great start, eh? Now that I am revisiting my goals, aims and aspirations it just seemed more fitting to start fresh – new name, new blog and new fire in my belly. In another words – LET’S GET CRACKING AND NO SLACKING!!! Well, that is kind off the ‘ideal world’ scenario, the past few months in real world looked more like this…
My brother has been cycling to work for about two years now, but few months ago he decided to shift some bulk and properly trim down. Yep, you can cycle every day and still be big and bulky. Recently joined gym and got really dedicated. To cut long story short, so far he managed to lose between five and six stones. Impressive if you ask me. So now that I saw that this is possible I started toying with the idea in my head that actually I want that as well! Once you decide what to do, it is pretty much straight forward to go and subscribe to the gym and get started. Said that, I had my concerns, I am a big girl, I didn’t want to injure myself or over/under do it and I knew that I will need some support for this to work. Hence I started searching for a gym and found one that offers an hour session with a personal trainer every six weeks for free. That way, I will have my training plan updated regularly and my progress will be monitored. This just ticked all the boxes. All was ready, I was buzzing, the only problem was that I knew that from mid July until the mid August I will not have time to do anything (yep I went Olympic mad…) and why would you pay for something you wouldn’t use? So, the plan was postponed till after Olympics.
Olympics came and went and so did my money… Surprisingly it turned out that you can’t sign gym membership just with a gleaming smile and without parting with some hard-earned cash… and so after the payday I stepped into the gym to sign that I will regularly (and willingly) part with blood, sweat, tears, flab and money until a new and improved me walks out of the doors at some point in the future. And where would be the best place to start than a full body check up and assessment to know where we are at, which brings us to September. More about how it went in my next post 😉
