I finally did it..

I finally did it!! I finally joined the gym and I have actually been.

I just joined my local council gym and really wasn't expecting that much however I am thoroughly impressed. The equipment was state of the art - all touch screen and fandangly! You can plug your ipod in and save your work out to it. They also had spinning machines which I have never come across before! And they have lots of good classes to top it all off. 

My plan is to do a class a day as well as some extra cardio on top. 

Maybe this time I will manage to stick to it!

Fuzzy Head

I have today what can be explained as "Fuzzy Head" I have so many tasks and ideas floating around in my head as well as all the usual worries. Today was the day I was supposed to join the gym. I have been to-ing and fro-ing with this idea for months now. I have looked at their class list and equipment and now I just need to go and do it!!

Just as I had finally made the decision Rosie has passed out on the floor asleep. Typical!

I am actually sick of this crappy weather now. Yes, I know I live in Scotland and its supposedly rains a lot but this is ridiculous now! I am blaming the current weather for my lack of motivation for the exercise and weight loss at the moment. I just cant seem to motivate myself for more than a couple of days.

I am now toying with the idea of joining a gym again. When I lived in Newcastle, I was at the gym most nights after work and enjoyed it. This is mainly because I had Erica my gym buddy there and we could motivate each other. Also the gym was a stones throw away and didnt take a lot of effort to get there. Since moving back up here I fell out the gym routine,  I no longer had anyone to chum me along to classes, it was much harder to reach and then I fell pregnant. Since having Rosie I have battled with the should I or shouldn't I argument and I think its about bloody time I gave it ago again.

It might also give me the chance to meet new people. Something I think I would really benefit from, especially since one of my bestie's has moved all the way to Cardiff! I also sometimes get into the habit of not seeing friends for ages, I think this has partly got to do with the fact that it is now such a mission to get out the door in under an hour! And the rubbish weather may I add. There has been about 5 nice days since Rosie was born! 

Does any one else seem to get stuck in this hermit routine? and apologise for the moany post!
