Back to the gym I go.

Yesterday, I went back to the gym for the first time in about three months. Yeah, I know December is an odd time to start gymming, but I have to go to Berlin in February and want to start fencing in January, so I don't want to be huffing and puffing then.

Well. I really regretted that I stopped at all. Yes, it's a pain to gym. But I got used to a certain level of fitness while I was at university. Now, though, I'm not even close to it. And I hate it.

I have to start rebuilding all over again. I have to take baby steps. It's terrible. Even worse than before.

Still, when I finished yesterday, I felt good. Like I'd done myself a really big favor.

And I had. Now I just need to keep doing it.

But yeah, this is definitely a goal I'll be working towards this December and in the coming year. I want to be more active. Even if it means taking a walk in the morning, that's what I need to do.

Anyone else trying to be more active this month?

Yay! As a gym instructor I think December is a great time to get back to the gym - it means you'll be back in the routine before it gets disrupted, which means you'll try your best to get straight back on it after Christmas!

You sound like me. I get to the gym in fits and starts. I hate it! I used to run, and stayed in great shape, but then I slipped a disc and needed back surgery. Impact exercise is now out for good. So, I walk or bike, do a lot of stretching. The body is a burden!
