*sigh* I suck, yea verily do I suck

I slept through my alarm yesterday, and the text message from Jumile, and the phone call from Jumile.

I’m useless.

Another night, another good session

As I promised myself, I left for the house without checking for messages.
Then sat/stood around as the frost melted off the car. Once the windscreen
and rear window were clear off I went, parked up, paid the parking machine
and went in. Only then did I check for messages, none. I then wondered if I
had arranged with Jumile or not, so I fired off a text massage, after a few
minutes, no response so I went in alone.

Treadmill, crosstrainer, bike, weight machines and stretches...same routine,
I might vary it a little next time. I was able to complete the circuit,
unlike Saturday, not with much to spare, but I did it. The moral of the
story is, go regularly, not necessarily on a fixed rota, but regularly.

The real point of this post is that I was feeling a little blue this evening
for reasons I won't go into here, getting down the gym and working my arse
off cleared that shit from my head and now I feel a whole heap better. Both
physically and mentally.

Good night ( and I do mean that) :)

Well, I did it..

I made it to the gym on a miserable morning, cold, windy, freezing rain falling on me as I wandered the car park looking for a working ticket machine. Met up with Jumile in the 'cafeteria' area and went in to the sweatbox.

There's not much to say about the routine, I did more or less what I have done every session recently, except that 1/2 way through the bike time my legs gave up. Yes I'd pushed a little harder than usual on the cross trainer, but not that much harder, or so I thought.

I guess I mustn't miss too many more sessions.

Since losing weight (gained another couple of #'s this week) I have found that my ankle plays up a lot less, in fact I can't recall the last time it ached, the same is true of my knees.

So, back to it, if i want to keep getting stronger, losing weight and inches I must return to a solid routine of visiting the gym, however unpleasant it is to get out there into the cold.

I'll be back Thursday with an update.
