In Which I’m Exercising Again

21st March 2017

I can’t believe this is my first blog post of 2017; it’s not that I’ve been slacking – although there is that – but more that I haven’t really had the time, or, let’s be honest, the inclination to blog lately.

Back At It Again With The Exercise

But I’ve started going to the gym again. I started with swimming twice a week back in February, and now that I’m in the third and final unit of this year at college, my days are Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday, so I can attend Aqua Fit on a Monday and swim for a while after that, and on Friday, there’s an “Intro To Spin” class, which is only half an hour long instead of the usual 45 minutes. Until I get my fitness levels up again, the 30 minute class will do me just fine. I’m just glad to be back at Spinning.

It was weird, because the last time I went to Spinning, it was just after the Water Palace had gotten new Spin bikes, and they were so uncomfortable because the seat’s nuts and bolts hadn’t been tightened enough, and I ended up falling off the seat every time I sat down, because it sat at a decidedly unjaunty angle, where it’s supposed to be flat.

This time? No such problems. Seat was fine, bike was fine, class was excellent. It was definitely nice to be at Spinning again, even if I wasn’t able to do as much as I used to be able to, at least I didn’t spend the entire time sitting down because I was so unfit. On the contrary, I spent more time standing up because my butt hurt sitting down, even with my gel seat cover on the bike.

The good news is that I’m exercising again. I just need to get my eating sorted, and I’ll be fine. But this is a good start. I’m back at the gym, I’m walking about 8,000 steps on the days I’m in college, and I just need to get my head in the game.

It’s not great right now, but it could be worse. I can live with that.

    That’s a great start. I’m sure it’s better not to do everything at once. Start exercising and then when you feel ready then start eating healthy. Good luck.
