Gym-tastic

I can't believe that I'm actually going to admit to this........... but I like going to the gym!! I know! Who would have guessed? I had my induction last night and got my fitness routine added to my gym tag and today I was all set to go. Induction? Gym Tag? Strange words indeed. Gone are the days of sit-ups, press-ups, medicines balls and lots of running. In instead are running machines, bikes, cardio monitors and abductors. (The last one I always thought were people who kidnapped other people). What do I know?
One of the things I like is that there are all shapes and sizes, all fitness levels and not a scrap of Lycra or a leg warmer to be seen.
My routine takes about an hour to and hour and a half but I only did an hour tonight as I had to get home for Samuel (who was at the park with his mates when I got in).

I've got my bag packed already for tomorrow and I'm raring to go.

  5. Good on you Liz - I am one of these people who finds the gym (well any kind of exercise, except maybe walking) incredibly boring and I really wish I didn't...xxx

  8. I love the gym and the high it gives me - get SAD in Winter and exercise is one of the first things to go - I LOVE Spring when I get my motivation back and getting back to exercise is a sure sign my SAD is gone :)
