Mandie's Gym Pledge!

Postby Mandie » Fri Feb 15, 2008 10:11 pm

Have been neglecting the gym for a while as I get settled into working at my new job (stupid shift work!). Can't blame the shifts too much though, because my gym is open 24 hours!

I am pledging to attend the gym FOUR times from Monday until Sunday next week. Best way to get back into it is to jump right in!

Wish me luck, I'll post how I go!

OMG a gym that's open 24 hours, that's keen. Where do you live?

I can honestly say i wouldn't become a member purely for the guilt factor that there is no excuse if it's open ALL the time. :)

I'm sure you'll do great though, determination, motivation, encouragement & willpower. YOU GO GIRL!!!

Go Mandie!
I bet you can do it!
And I think shift work is an excuse... it throws your body clock out!

24 hr gym is in Perth, right in the city - a 15 minute walk from my house! DEFINITELY no excuses! Except I can't go TOO late at night by myself because it's a bit dodgy to walk home around here after dark!

Not going so great with this pledge so far... Monday and Tuesday were a bit of a wash!

But I am going to the gym this morning (just fixing my hair now, then I'm off) and my BF promised to walk me to the gym tomorrow (he's got the day off) so he will make me go! Then just two more!

Yay, I went today!

Walked 15 minutes there (that's my warmup now!), then did 10 mins on the treadmill alternating walking and jogging - was walking for 1 minute then jogging for 1.5 minutes. I'm still scared of the treadmill but I'm slowly getting better! Then I did another 10 minutes on the bike, same kinda thing, with intervals of going hard and going slower.

Then I did my weights routine - it's been a month since I last did it and it HURT! Didn't have to put any of my weights down though, so I'm glad about that! Gonna be sore tomorrow though!

Booked a PT session for Friday too, so I'm definitely gonna have to go then! :)

Yeah, my boyfriend is gonna join and we're gonna go at 2am one day just for the hell of it - to say we did! Bet it's quiet then!

But realistically, I can't usually go after dark unless Joel is home and he drives me - it's not a safe area to walk around in after dark! But at least I can go early in the morning before work!

Thanks everyone! No gym on Thursday - went to donate blood instead, then couldn't exercise after that!

Have a PT session this morning (Friday) though, so I will be there! Then just gotta go Sat AND Sun!

Just updating to say that I did go to my PT this morning, and my bottom now hurts! In a good way.. maybe it's getting smaller? Two more sessions to go in uh.. two more days! I always leave stuff to the last minute!

Mandy have you done that 2am workout yet? That really sounds fun. I don't have the cash for a gym membership at the moment but I regularly join in on a fitness in the park session with a personal trainer. This lady's great with all the local mums. :D
Have a great day!
