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.
