There are days where I’m having to push myself to get up and go to the gym. But when I don’t go to the gym or miss a session I feel so angry at myself.
I’ve lost a few kg’s and that makes me feel so much better about myself! A lot of my friends have been commenting on how good I look. I feel more myself than I have in months.
I had a breakthrough about a week ago, when I said to my trainer Nathan when I was struggling to make all of my sessions. I said to him that I’m more likely to come to training if you’re here. For the reason that I don’t want to let him down. Then when I went home I thought about what I said to Nathan and came to the realisation that I’ve got to stop doing this for everyone else and start doing this for myself.
I’ve been feeling an extra spring in my step and I’m feeling stronger. I still can’t sprint as it hurts when I run. This makes me frustrated because getting back to my ‘normal’ body is taking time.
Now that I’m getting fitter Nathan and I are getting more focused on strength and conditioning – which I love! Learning how to use different equipment is great.
I recently had a conversation with an old boss of mine and she was so thrilled in what I am doing with Fitness First and was extremely proud of how I’m motivating other mums.
