My Great Big Gym Odyssey – Day 3 (am)


Day 3

At the gym by 5.15am…forgot ipod. Shit!

Watching boring music videos on [V], including but not limited to Beyonce wearing a wedding dress and whining about someone she never had. Luckily, I was soon distracted by Mr Hot Built Guy with Tatts. Non tribal tatts so that’s always a bonus these days.

He was wearing this singlet….but in black. No I was not complaining either 🙂

Small moment of eye contact and a good morning smile then he was on the treadmill and matching my pace. Of course, he was breaking into a sprint every few minutes….again, no complaints from me.

So I increased my walking speed by a little and did my 21 minutes…. YAY!!

My right foot was hurting…. not the shin today, just the outside of my foot…. and I felt like it was rolling out…so I must confer with a work colleague who happens to be a bit of a sport/fitness type expert and was advising me on the proper footwear yesterday. Took a few snaps of my shoes to show him and I am sure after a quick visit to the shops on my lunch break, all will be fixed by this afternoon. I think I need one of those slide in sole things…yeah whatever they are called LOL

I got a text while I was at the gym asking if this is the song I was hearing. Ha ha ha not quite.maybe soon 😉

I feel really good that I am actually doing something positive for myself. Have a great day.

Okay 5.15am….then straight to the gym…..okay coffee, whinging then straight off to the gym.

Day 1

Had my gym orientation with the friendly & supportive staff. Also met my personal trainer, Miss T. Miss T is fabulous and not too perky….which I am enjoying. I don’t think I will like perky at 5am LOL Have to meet her on Friday to run through a training programme.

Did 2 minutes on the treadmill and can feel the fitness flooding through me. Okay so that’s not strictly true but I did do 2 minutes on the treadmill.

I also got on this machine and did leg lifts….

I saw this machine and just stared at it. Did I want to have a go? Ummm no thanks….It’s a cross trainer. How nice for it *insert very fake smile here* I am fine just looking at it for now….

Back tomorrow at 5am to start getting fit and fabulous!

Oh this is the perfect opportunity to include pics of a certain Mr Manganiello working out…..because I am working out so it’s not superfluous. Do you like what I did there?

I wonder if he will be my workout buddy?

And to finish, this will be looping on my ipod at 5am tomorrow…. RAWR!!!
