Or at least a resolution or two for the next year has started.
This time last year I challenged myself to start exercising more and began attending Zumba class once a week after eight years of no exercise. The classes I went to were instructed by Annelies Silverwood and were great fun. I went along with some friends and I guess you could say I gained confidence with regards to exercising with others ( I’d not experience that since PE at school).
After several months I looked into joining a gym, where I would be able to attend multiple classes and have access to more equipment but they all seemed so expensive. Thankfully by July some of my housemates decided they wanted to join a gym as well and one spotted a deal at LA fitness.
So I have gone from last october, doing no exercise to visiting the gym 5/6 times a week, to attend Zumba, Yoga, hellish Legs, Bums & Tums classes, as well as getting to grips with the cross trainer, bikes and something I’ve been told is called a grinder (for your arms).
Now it’s November again and I’ve got the work out down, but my eating habits are pretty bad. Chocolate all the time, whenever I fancy it. New rules are: only healthy snacking during the working week. So if I fancy a treat, it’s got to be nuts or seeds or fruit etc. I said a friendly farewell to sweets in the week last night; Halloween seemed an appropriate last hurrah.
I know that doesn’t seem like a massive diet change but the plan is for it to lead towards a diet change, in the same way taking up one class a week has lead to joining a gym and attending regularly.
Anyway, wish me luck!
