It’s been a week since I’ve been to the gym and I’m having withdrawal symptoms. This once-upon-a-time any-excuse-not-to-do-anything-physical teenager has grown up to be a fitness loving 30-something. It’s the book New Rules Of Lifting For Women that really changed things for me. I’m still busy with the program and am about to start stage 6 of 7 sometime this weekend. Before I started doing NROLFW, all I did was cardio…begrudgingly. Now I lift weights and enjoy going to the gym and love the feeling of being strong.
But this course that I started on Monday has put a spanner in the works. I am at school from 9.30am – 5pm each day which means I leave home before 8am and get home around 6pm. While I’m at home I need to spend time with my Special People, do loads of coursework and prepare lessons in minute detail. This leaves
little no time to go to the gym.
I’m hoping to get 2 gym visits in this weekend. I’m excited to start stage 6 of NROLFW as it opens with negative chin-ups. I’m also a little apprehensive about looking like an idiot while doing them.
But if I had to sum up this post in one line, it would be this… I miss the gym and can’t wait to finish this course and resume a bit of normalcy.
