Hi Guys! Sorry for the long time no post but I got that job I mentioned in my last post (yayyyy!!!!) and then I had two essays due in and we went to Germany for the weekend (pictures will be up tomorrow) so it’s been a busy couple of weeks. I’ll post the Germany photos tomorrow so make sure you check back but for now I shall talk about the gym!
I’m soooo incredibly sore today :(. I’m trying to get past my love/hate relationship with the gym but it’s not easy… I’m struggling and I’ve only done two gym sessions so far – one of which I didn’t finish because I nearly fainted and had to leave! Today I feel like someone has trampled over my thighs while I was asleep and now I’m hobbling about like a pensioner.
I’m not sure what it is that stops me from being one of those people who can just get up and go but every time I have to have a serious internal debate with part of me wanting to get fit and healthy and the other part just wanting to stay indoors and be cozy (and lazy). Most of the time I’m very driven and can easily get stuck into things like this blog and my YouTube channel but there are a couple of areas of my life where I’m the queen of procrastination and I hate hate hate it and the gym is certainly one of them. I’m actually thinking of getting a tattoo saying ‘I am my own worst enemy’ or something similar to remind myself of how sometimes my laziness, procrastination and general self-doubt is the only thing stopping me from reaching my goals and being happy.
Luckily I don’t want to lose a lot of weight (probably part of the reason I allow myself to be lazy with the gym). I’d like to get some more muscle definition all over but for me it’s more about having self discipline and sticking to a routine as well as staying healthy so I don’t have trouble staying in shape later in life. I’m going to persevere and keep trying to get into it. One of my New Year resolutions is going to be to go the gym 3-5 times per week strictly so I’m working my way up to that this month. Also I’m going on holiday to Oman over Christmas (expect some cool pictures) so the idea of a bikini will be a good motivation! I’ll keep you posted! 😉
