Getting Back To The Gym


It’s been over a month since I went to the gym. Doom. I feel horrific. I’ve been really ill with vertigo and I’m only just feeling normal again.

I feel flabby, big, heavy, unfit, clumsy and sluggish. I feel like I’ve gained weight but I don’t know for sure because I’ve not weighed myself since July.

It’s time to get myself back to the gym and healthy again. For me, going to the gym does wonders for my body image and self-esteem.

I walked 4 miles last Friday which is the longest I’ve walked since I gotten ill. I’m going try going to the gym twice a week to see how I feel.

If all goes well, I’m going to do some at home workouts, too. I have some P90x DVD’s I want to tackle, as well as some online workouts via a collaboration I am doing this month. I want to get back into running and cycling, too. I’m also going to be eating healthier this week.

I’ll buy a scale and weigh myself next week as I do need to track my progress somehow. I need to shift at least half a stone to feel comfortable again and so my work uniform fits me properly!

This means my fitness update posts will be back next week.

Watch this space!

    Glad you’re feeling better! I’m trying not to weigh myself as I get hooked on the numbers and it massively impacts my mood, I’ve opted for once a month. Looking forward to seeing the collab with the online videos, always on the hunt for good online videos.. Love fitness blender but I’m pretty sure they try to kill me.

    I can definitely relate to the feeling once you’ve been out of the fitness routine even just for a little while. So good to hear you’re going to get back into it and I look forward to hearing your updates.

    I’m going to get a good kick up the ass and get back into all things fitness. I feel so crap about myself right now and its spilling over into other things and it’s really getting me down. I don’t want that. So it’s back on the bandwagon and away we go!

    Glad you’re feeling better! It’s taken a while for your vertigo to shift. Take it easy and don’t rush in to things
