Well, this is an interesting venture for me, as normally you would find me horizontal watching Netflix.

So I decided to join the gym, as I wanted to tone up as being a food blogger is slowly taking its toll around the midsection…so I thought let’s get rid of it before it makes a full-time appearance.

Joining a gym is a scary experience as it’s new territory, and you start thinking what will everyone think when they see me.

To be honest, this is the feeling, but the reason the people inside the gym look at you really is just to see if they know you.

The gym I joined is my local gym, mostly due to its price and location as the ones in town for me are too costly…and if I did a pay as you go I wouldn’t keep it up so I opted for monthly payments.

Thoughts…

I managed to meet a nice PT there and he showed me around, and how to use some of the machines.

I then told him what I wanted to achieve during my time at the gym, so I looked around and followed his advice.

He told me to start with 3 sets of 10 on several machines for the first month, then after that every month increase the weight to the next step keeping 3 sets of 10.

For me this sounded good, as I knew I didn’t want to go all in and hurt myself then have a break and then not come back so this sounded good to me.

Overall…

So I won’t be showing a half-naked photo of me in my current body look, as it’s been done too many times with many different people but I will keep you posted on how I do…plus I don’t want to put you off your food.

For me the first week was good, granted at nights my upper body would be sore and waken me but no pain no gain right?

At home, I will be doing the weights and crunches, and the rest at the Gym. I have also made a few changed to my diet….a little. I will only have an alcoholic drink once a week max, and also no in-between snacks….also I have started to take water to replace any fizzy drinks.

Let’s see how this goes 🙂
