Cold night, long day in work, sleet and rain and a warm house. None of these are conducive to making you want to go to the gym, but it’s a case of suck it up and move your ass! So, that’s exactly what we had to do this evening…. and this is only session number 2. It’s not looking good is it? lol

Well, off we trundled into the car and off to the gym we go for an hour.

Thankfully, the gym was nice and quiet – only one other person had ventured out in the crappy weather; she’s hardcore don’t you know.

Well lookie here, what’s this the nice chatty postman just dropped off at I-Pixel towers?

It’s my supply of Raspberry Ketone’s & Green Tea suppliments…. Time to give them a try and see if they live up to the current hype that seems to be surrounding them.

Have you tried using any form of the Raspberry Ketones & Colon Cleanse Combo? Why not pop your feedback in the comments section below, I’d love to hear your experiences.

I’ll update you on how I’m getting on in a few days and see if there are any side effects or benefits like those being claimed by many people.

Raspberry Ketones & Detox Colon Cleansing

Doesn’t that title sound appetising? Well no, not really but it seems to be the latest diet wonder combination – Raspberry Ketones & Detox Colon Cleansing. However, with this combination people seem to be getting fairly decent results and medical tests don’t seem to be finding any substantial down sides. With that in mind I thought I would give them a try. What’s the worst that can happen? They don’t work, or I get a bit of an upset stomach…. I’m sure I can live with that and if there are any more serious issues simply stop using them. As they are both from natural ingredients (raspberry’s & green tea) they should be fine.

First Gym Fitness Session Completed.

03 Feb
February 3, 2013

Well, it’s done – Gym session one is over with and it was a lot harder than I’d anticipated! As mentioned in my previous post about going back to the gym after a long time, this was my first visit since I was 24 / 25 years old and was a real shock to the system! Still, the hardest part is done, I’ve joined, attended and now I’m paying the price. :)

The induction lasted about 45 minutes and after we’d been introduced to all the machines of torture, it was time to get stuck in and get a feel for the various pieces of equipment and see how I intend to use them. For me, this first session was to take a look at what machines can help me focus on the areas I want to target – specifically: Stomach, lower back, arms & shoulders. I’m not interested in trying to become the next Arnold Schwarzenegger, but to tone the parts of the body that cycling alone can’t really help with. This is a means to an end, a way to tighten the stomach and combined with my diet, and getting back out on the bike to keep the cardiovascular levels up, improve body shape & BMI.

Hello Gym, it’s been a long time…

02 Feb
February 2, 2013

It’s been a long time since I last visited a gym to do any training, but that’s exactly where I’ll be tomorrow lunchtime. The dark nights, cold & wet weather and my complete lack of motivation over the last few months have taken their toll. I’m fed up of not doing anything to keep my fitness levels up, and while my weight has only fluctuated by a couple of pounds, I have absolutely no intention of letting all the hard work and effort of the last 18 months go out of the window. I’ve already beaten my original goal of losing 2 stone in weight, and now I want to lose an additional stone to get me to around 11.5 stone.

There’s no real reasons for this particular figure, except I’m still not 100% happy with the way my body looks. I have areas that I want to improve upon and some fat I still want to get rid of. Unfortunately, cycling alone isn’t going to do what I need, so it’s time to haul my arse to the gym to get some alternative exercise into my regime. So, tomorrow is induction day, and I’m aiming to get at least an hour of actual training in as well. Thankfully the gym is only a few miles away, and once the weather breaks and the nights get lighter, and providing I enjoy working out in a gym environment, I can ride the bike up to the gym and back home again to give the legs an additional workout.
