I try to do 3 – 5 sessions per week. The more consistent I am, the easier it gets. I try do it consecutively so I don’t fall out of rhythm. I do weights at least once a week, piloxing (boxing and pilates mashed together) twice and the rest are some high intensity trainings. If I need a breather, I’ll switch to yoga or zumba for a day.
For starters, I’m not completely dead in the first 10 minutes of warm up. Also, for most of the time, I can still breathe when I’m finished. By now I manage to do few proper push ups per session without collapsing. I noticed my body is getting firmer, my will stronger and when I run to catch a bus, I no longer get out of breath. Getting my butt to the gym is becoming a habit now and ending a day without a session feels a bit weird. I’ll admit, the last half an hour before the session is the worst – I often feel so tired and tempted to cancel, but most of the time I pull through and it feels even better when I’m done.
I am very happy I decided to take a plunge and make this commitment. Honestly, there is no better feeling than sore muscles the next day and knowing that you’re doing something amazing for yourself. I would never thought I’d hear myself say this, but I think I’m starting to enjoy exercise. Weird, huh?! My next goal is 6 months – let’s see if I make it!♥
