It's typical for gym's to get busier with the start of the new year as half of the population have jotted 'get fitter' or something similar on their list of resolutions.  Last year I made a good start to getting fitter by joining the gym but I really want to push myself to work harder, every month I'm aiming to update you with what I've been up to and any progress I've made.


It was my aim at the start of the month to run a bit more, in the past my cardio has been limited to the cross trainer and rowing machine because running scares me slightly!  I get very red, sweaty and out of breath but I decided to face my fears and step up to the running machine!  I started off just doing 10 minutes running at a fairly slow pace and gradually built up the speed.  Next month I'm going to try running for a bit longer, maybe 20 minutes?  Baby steps!

My arms have always been very weak and I thought it was about time I built them up!  I have been using exercises from this fitness blender video in my circuits to improve definition and strength.  I found this harder to add into my routine at the gym but I have been doing some of the excersises at home instead.

With the recent additions I'm quite happy with how my progress is going but I aimed to go to the gym more regularly.  Before Christmas I went about once a week when I could fit a session in but this month I have made sure I go every week if not twice!  That way I feel better in myself, see faster progress and make the most of my membership (save your pennies!).

Next month I'm heading to Lanzarote on holiday so I want to make sure I'm in decent shape for that.  Hopefully that will give me some extra motivation!
