Entertainment at the gym.........

There's many reason we all choose to go to the gym, I love the feeling I get AFTER a great workout. Some people love the different classes or just having some time out from the kids. Well I've discovered a new reason to go to the gym! Pure entertainment! Man I could just sit in the corner for hours and watch all of the funny little things that everyone does. Everyone seems to have their little habits or special routines they like to do. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, it's just some leave me feeling a little bewildered. There is this one lady who goes to my gym who insists on cranking the treadmill up on full incline and then at a running speed hangs on to the handles for dear life and runs. It's just the funniest thing to watch, it looks like her arms are going to snap off at any time! Anyway at least she's out there doing stuff (or maybe just out there!).

Anyway I'm loving my spin classes at the moment! I'm truly hooked, i just wish my gym had more on. I find it so much easier to really push myself in a class environment. My training has been going great, although today I woke up with a cold. Don't really know where it came from but have felt rotten all day. I'm not very good at being sick, so have been bored out of my head all day just hoping a good day of rest will help me to get back on track asap. I've been a good girl and haven't trained today. I still put my training gear on this morning and contemplated it for a good couple of hours, although after realising how much I was struggling to just walk around the house I figured going to the gym was a very bad idea.

I'm flying up to Cairns to start my next 6 day trip on Friday. It's a pretty cruisy trip so I should be fine to go! I'm hoping I can train tomorrow but will just have to wait and see how I feel in the morning. It's strange how much I hate missing my training sessions, don't get me wrong I love having a day of here and there but when I can't train it really annoys me.

Anyway better get organised and bags packed to head of tomorrow. Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Cheers, Hilds

Back to normal!

I just realised how long it had been since I have blogged. I suppose when your feeling down you don't really want to keep whinging about it!
The good news is I'm back to normal (if there's such a thing). And wow is it great to feel human again. I can finally fit back into my clothes again and my moods are back on track. It's amazing when you start to talk to other people about what your going through you find so many others who have experienced something similar. So after many weeks of hormonal hell I'm feeling great. Training is going great guns and nutrition is good. I've been pretty busy flying around with work the last 3 weeks but am happy to say i'm at home for 2 1/2 weeks now. Lots of exciting things happening at the moment, but will save that for another post.

Keep Smiling! Hilds
