OK, first things first. I'm a little overweight, but over the past few months i've lost a few pounds, put a few back on, lost a few etc etc Been to the gym, pulled a muscle, forgot about the gym (still paid !!), pulled another muscle, forgot about the gym etc etc.
I'm going to use this blog as a motivational tool - trust me when i say if I can do so can anyone. I am eating sensibly/healthy and my main goal is to be a little thinner and more active.
Bottom line is i'm not a serial exerciser, i want to become more active, more fitter and have a body of an adonis (at 44 that ain't gunna' happen). I'm embarrassed to say that all my work colleagues are fitter and all take regular exercise - and i'm suitably impressed by them.
So last night was the start of a new journey for me. So i packed by things into a sports bag and headed off to the gym (i'm still paying). Headphones on and MP3 downloaded and I was off. I was amazed at how simple the workout was, i kept everything at an even pace, heart rate was increased and i was sweating like i was in a Sauna.
30 minutes pasted in no-time and i had run/walked for 3.2k, and most of all enjoyed it. But most of all the feeling afterwards was fantastic.
Woke-up this morning with no tweaks or pulls, and a general feeling of good health.
