I didn't realise until my return yesterday that I had not been to the gym since October!! I joined thinking that I could loose a bit of weight, get healthy you know the usual, but had no idea how difficult it actually was.
Now I don't want to put any of you none gym users off but, it is hard work, I must admit that I am seriously unfit and overweight, I have been for quite some while but, I am trying to do something about it. To the extent that I called my mum (my gym buddy, apparently it is much easier to stick to it if you have someone to go with) and asked if she wanted to go this afternoon as well. My arms, legs and well whole body is beginning to feel it but in a good way, you feel energised and I feel it is easier for me to eat healthy knowing that I am exercising as well.
I think that it is obvious that I am so not one of those people who goes on at length about how low their heart rate is, how high their lung capacity is or how many times they go the gym in a week I write this simply to say, if you live in Renfrewshire and are thinking that you can't go because you are too fat and everyone at the gym will be skinny minnies don't let that stop you, if I can do it so can you. Or try the Jogging buddies, they are a good way to get fit as well, try embracing the healthy living agenda, remember it starts at home.
