There are many people who swear by doing it online or via apps and DVDs. For me motivation is a big problem. Once I’m in the house it’s too easy to get distracted by the TV or the ‘to do’ list. Besides, I’m living in a new area and it would be nice to have coffee with someone I’m not related to.
Knowing that unless I have an appointment to leave the house I won’t, I arranged to a session with one of the trainers at a nearby gym. No contract, no pressure.
My first impressions were good. Firstly, she looked incredible, slim, toned and healthy. I was embarrassed having to admit to my daily sugar habit of eating biscuits and sweets washed down with coffee to get me through the afternoon. I admitted that for weeks I had done zero exercise and could no longer ft into my jeans.
Fitness test booked for Friday.
