And lo, the gym calleth

Well, after about 2 years of saying "I should really join the gym", I actually got around to doing it last weekend. A few reasons for joining:

1. I'm fat. I seriously need to lose some weight.
2. I'm unfit. Important for fieldtrips and I actually miss having a lot of stamina.
3. My clothes don't fit and I'm too much of a tight wad to keep buying more.

So, this blog may now become splattered with gym updates, and I realise they aren't interesting, but they are a good record of what I've done for myself, so stuff ya!

My starting weight is 11.4 stones (around 160 pounds for you metric folk) - in my peak fitness I only weighed 7.5 stone - but 1) I was too thin, don't really want to get back that far 2) it's probably unrealistic anyway. 9 stone would be good, and I'd like to get back don to a size 10-12. Yay, targets!

Anyway, gym activity this week:

General gym: 2 hr 15 mins
Weights: 15 mins
Classes: 2 hours
Swimming: 30 mins

Not bad if I say so myself. When it came to swimming I was actually surprised at how bad I was - guess that's what happens when you don't swim for 4 (!) years. *sigh*

I think it's gonna be a hard slog, but it'll sure be worth it!
