Trying To Be Positive!

There seems to be so much I want to set and achieve this year, my fitness is right up there at the top which I am so surprised about. This time last year I never even thought about being fit but it is amazing how you change. The trouble with me is, I have it all set in my mind, but soon as I get home I just want to stay in, where it is warm and sit in front of the PC all night surfing and playing music. I need to start and get to the gym more regularly although I did get there yesterday (Sunday) and tomorrow is my training night with Steve. He made my night last Friday as he remarked how toned I was looking, I'm getting there!

I need to make changes to my diet too, stop eating so much bread. It is whoelwheat bread I'm eating but lots of it, from sarnies to toast, I even had home made fish cakes and they had breadcrumbs in them too! Also I need to look at my breakfast too, maybe trying to eat eggs, well maybe but I might have to boil them the night before otherwise I just might not have time for them!

Otherwise, I'm really chuffed with how things are going health wise, at this moment I weigh 76.6kg or 12st 2lbs. My fitness is really good although there's always room for improvement. My body shape is slowly changing and yes, there are muscles there too! Roll on summer, vests, tops and shorts, me thinks I'm gonna be posing this summer and why not!

Winter Blues

I can't wait for winter to go and spring to turn up. I tried to go for a ride out yesterday and I turned back home as the wind was so strong, it's bad enough whe you are riding into a head wind but when you are fighting with your bike too, that was enough for me so I turned around and dejectedly came home. I think that may be the only time I've done that!

My training is going well, Worked my chest on Friday and I'm there again tonight. Sometimes I don't feel like going but when I get there I do enjoy it and feel good afterwards. So when I feel like this I have put some photo's for inspiration on my ipod of guys working out and fit bodies, so that I can look and think about why I need to go to the gym, hope it works!

It seems the mouse invasion is over (I hope I'm not speaking too soon), I think I killed about 30 of them since November after the disgusting neighbours of mine moved out. The house was a real mess apparently and even the builder in there has told me of stories of the mice in the house eating through plaster. Vince has sealed the holes under the floor lading into the kitchen so hopefully that is sorted!

Another Update!

My back is aching a little, been a dull ache for a couple of days now. Had my training session with Steve, he stretched my back and it was perfect, not a twinge, nothing! I'm confused to what caused it, he hasn't got much idea either, but I try to explain it to him how it is but I sound like I'm crazy hehehehe! Here is a photo of me and him taken at the gym in November!

I Promise To Update More Often

Yet again, the months roll past and I forget to update this blog, so I'm going to make more of an effort! Happy New Year too!

I had a pretty good but quiet Christmas which was really nice, plenty of days doing nothing, not having to worry about not doing anything. Vince spent Christmas with me this year which was great, especially after last years disaster Xmas, it was nice spending it with someone! As usual, the holiday soon past and it was back to work on the 4th of January, but it was nice to get back to work and get back to normal I guess. Back on the diet, back to the gym and lose the weight I'd put on over the Xmas period (don't we all).

I hurt my back at the gym on Friday night, Steve (my PT) helped to stretch out my back but I guess my muscles just went into spasm and that was it for the weekend. No cycling or gym for me, but I managed to walk it out after 2 painful days, today it seems like it is getting back to normal. I'm at the gym in an hour for another PT session, so we'll see what he has to say about how we can get things back to normal and quickly too! I don't want to stop doing what we are doing as it is working, the old body is in the best shape it has been in for years and I feel good too!
