The Gym....

Yesterday was a real milestone for me on my journey and new life style...After a period of absence of around 4 years...YES 4 whole years...I returned to the Gym on Friday morning...I took it a little easy , 30 mins on the bike and some upper body weights only, a total of about an hour......I woke up this morning with a few aches and pains, but they are the pains that give you comfort that you had a decent work out....I still have a little problem with my knees when I wake up , but they are easing week by week...The more I exercise the easier they will get , I hope.

After the Gym I had an hour in the sauna and steam room , before sitting quietly on the beach , glowing  and feeling really was a really good day :-)

Weight wise, today I am only 0.5Kg from my first goal of 2 stone (28 lbs) , I hope I can throw this by Tuesday morning, It all depends on my liquid retention during Monday.

Fingers crossed..

Hope you all have a good weekend...




  1. Wow - things are going great for you!

    Congratulations on the weight loss and for the visit to the gym :-)

  2. Congratluations, Andrew-- I am first visiting your blog, and I will look forward to seeing you shrinking with your band!!
    Cheers, Vanessa

  3. That is a HUGE milestone. Congrats on getting back to working out!

  4. Good for you! I intend to go back to the gym next week. Hmmmm relaxing at the beach afterward sounds lovely-I think I will do that too!

  5. Vanessa (Dinnerland) do you have a blog we can follow??

  6. That's awesome! Glad you are feeling great.

  7. I think that is an amazing start! In fact, I think its great if that is all you EVER do in the gym. Don't burn yourself out. If an hour is all you wanna do, so be it!

  8. Nothing beats the feeling of working out...such satisfaction and those aches are almost welcome.....You are going so well. Keep at it

  9. That's a great start! It's so nice that you can reward yourself with the sauna right there at the gym. You are doing amazing!
