I used to have a gym membership to a really fancy gym. I would go for maybe 2 hours a day, three or four days a week. I’d do an hour or so on a cross-trainer (medium-high resistance), go swim for 20 minutes and then lounge in the jacuzzi or steam room for about half an hour. HOW DID I USED TO DO THIS? Well, I’m pretty sure I could still do the last part, jacuzzis are great. However, I just did twenty minutes of squats, lunges, crunches and little twisty things that I learnt at an aerobics class, and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I couldn’t breathe and my legs turned to jelly. It was awful.
Now I’ve had a shower and my legs have returned to their slightly less weakened state, I’m feeling better about the whole ordeal and thinking that maybe, JUST MAYBE, this daily exercise business is something I could be able to keep up.
Eating healthily however is going to be difficult tonight. Being at work is the worst thing if you’re on a diet. I’ve seen the other girls struggle as they try to resist chips, garlic bread, cake, sweets brought in by other staff (usually me), whatever. It is hard, especially when you work in somewhere so small where there’s no place to go that you can avoid the kitchen/food.
I am really hungry and there is nothing healthy in the house. I suppose toast isn’t too bad, if we have peanut butter. I hear that’s pretty healthy?
