Good morning 🙂
Friday was very welcome last week, I can tell you that, first full week of the year at work and all that! However, it was a sunny(ish) day for once and I made the most of it by going for a walk at lunchtime…and getting lost! My sense of direction is rubbish and I managed to get slightly lost in a housing estate trying to use it as a cut through. I have used it before in the opposite direction, but things look different when you are facing the other way! ON the plus side, I got a bit of extra distance in 🙂
The really really ironic thing was, just before I got completely lost, a delivery driver stopped to ask me directions to somewhere near my house, which I gave 😀
Another good thing about Friday (on top of it being Friday of course) is that I get to finish work early 😀 not very early, but early enough to get into the gym before the rush! So that is what I did.
Matt lent me some small handles which are pretty cool and meant I could do my battle rams and dive bombers on them rather than on dumbbells which have a tendency to want to roll away at inconvenient moments! I managed to (after a cross trainer warm up) bag a mat at the trx, so that I could do my program. I still only managed 3 times through…and eve three times was hard work, Maybe it was something to do with the return to work thing, or the Friday thing, but what ever it was I was tired! That didn’t matter, I did it and it was awesome 😀
By the end of the session, the gym was getting pretty busy again (even though I have managed to take a picture of it looking empty) although not as busy as last week, I wonder if the January effect is wearing off already…
The other thing I noticed, is about half of the staff in the gym now know me by name! This is a little bit odd and a little bit cool! It also reminded me that at least they know I am not a January only gym goer 😀 (I think I have a slight paranoia head on about that!)
It was a good work-out-y active Friday
which means..Day 203 Complete 🙂

Those New Year’s resolutioners are predictable…
Makes me kind of sad though that so many will fall off the exercise bandwagon so quickly. 😦
It is quite sad isn’t it… If only they would give it a chance it can be lots of fun!
Really and truly sad. Especially the ones who will moan and complain in a few months time that they wish they could lose 10 or 20 or 50 lbs. Wishing won’t make it happen. MOVE!
So many people ask how to lose weight or get “more toned” or what ever but they really hate the answer “work out a lot and eat better”
it really is the only way!
