Feeling Fit and Fabulous
You may (or may not) remember that back in March I joined a gym, and was going to start getting more exercise back in my life. Well, then I went off to Morocco, and then there was this and there was that other excuse . . . and I finally said enough. I'm going to get in there. So I did something really wild and crazy. I bought time with a personal trainer. It's been brilliant! Seriously, if you're struggling to get the habit, if you can afford it, even for a few weeks, or even once/month, do it. I've learned so much about doing exercises better. I've also actually progressed with my weights training. That's such a first for me! I'm now doing more than I was when I started, and feeling it less! It's wonderful. I still feel pretty exhausted by the routine, so it's not that I need to do more, but my muscles don't just ache for 3 days after. I need to get in gear and push myself more on my cardio routine. I only do weights with my PTer. Cardio is on my own. I've been doing it, but only half hearted. I need to throw myself into it like I have with the weights. But I'm feeling so much better!
