I’ve recently joined a gym. My first time ever doing this in fact. Last winter, I used to love walking my two hours a day with Little Man but as the days grew hotter my hibernation started and my love of chocolate continued. I’ve put on weight but more than that, my mind also feels sluggish.
Some of you know that a few weeks ago we had friends staying with us and I ended up visiting my gym with one of them, we took a pilates class a few times and I was hooked pretty much from the start. I’m not ashamed to say that it is a female only place and I like it that way. There are fantastic looking women of all ages and sizes and it just has a great energy to it with everyone being so unbelievable friendly. Personally, if I was in a mixed gym I would feel so embarrassed and shy.
Since I’m not currently working a regular 9-5, I haven’t put Little Man in any kind of daycare before but the creche allows him some more social time with other children besides his usual circle. So far, he seems to be loving it which is a great comfort to me while I’m working out.
A friend suggested I buy a couple of pieces of work out gear as an incentive so I got this Hello Kitty top and another simple singlet. Oddly they both make me feel rather motivated! A few friends also suggested my taking a multivitamin of some sort so I opted for the cheapest but also the ones that didn’t look like horse tranquilizers. Win-win!
So far, I’m pretty happy with all the purchases and have noticed an increase in energy and all-round general health since taking the vitamin. Of course this could also be some sort of placebo effect.
One recent day I even made a salad…
What are your keeping healthy secrets or habits? I’d love some inspiration!
Until next time,
