We have all made our New Year resolutions but now it is March 2015 and have we been keeping to the gym routines that we promised ourselves 3 months ago?
The three months leading up to Christmas I really found my groove. I was cycling to work each morning, visiting the gym three mornings a week and even eating right. In fact during those three months I lost 2 stones (34lbs/12,7kg) in weight. Then Christmas came, followed by the New Year. Already I knew it was going to be tough to return home to freezing cold Berlin and continue on the same path. The day before I came back I twisted my ankle. Just the excuse I needed! I have not been to the gym with any great passion since and boy can i feel it. I also have gained 2/3 of the weight that I had lost previously.
I listen to the Body Do Over podcast and get a lot out of it and, if I am honest, I am one of the people who has really fell off the wagon recently. So, time to step up again.
I got my bike out from the basement and yesterday I cycled to work and back and today did the same. A return trip of 12km! I have to cycle past my gym too… but little steps. I will try to add the gym next week.
