When I look in the mirror I’m kinda alright, curves are at the right places and even the love handles are not too but. But I’m unfit and my BMI calculation said I’m overweight. But that will change sometime in the future – hopefully by December.
One and half months ago, at the playgroup, one my friends asked “Would you like to go to the gym with me?” It was a date. I was happy she asked me and more over the moon when she told me she had a free month membership pass for me.
I went to the gym after nearly two years without going. After I gave birth to AOI I didn’t go to the gym, I was worried that my milk would stop or something silly like that. So a year after I gave birth to my daughter I started to walk and do Billy’s Boot Camp workouts in the comfort of my home but never went into a class to burn more fat and gain more energy.
When we started going to the gym, me and my friend used the treadmill and never thought about the trying the classes – or at least I didn’t. We had a free one on one trainer session and the instructor told me I need to lose body fat, she was going to help me achieve that with workout designed for me. I was intrigue but due to time and finance I couldn’t commit to it. Then due to a different routine at home I didn’t manage to go to run on the treadmill some days. For this reason I tried hot yoga one day and it was awesome. I decided to go to more classes, like core/physique and stop running on the treadmill.
Four Wednesdays ago I went to a Group Blast workout class, a 60 minutes of step training to fix my cardio. I loved the music, especially the club songs by Enrique Iglesias – I wonder what he’s up to these days. Anyways, my head spun a little but by the time I was out of the gym I felt fitter, stronger and clear minded.
On the way home I thought that I may look like I’m fit but I’m not at all. But slowly, if I manage to look after what I eat, I will get to a fitter and healthy me. I will achieve that yummy mummy body I dream of.
Well, all this just to say that I’m enjoying going to the gym and unlike when I became a mother for the first time, this time I know that going to the gym doesn’t stop a mother from having breastmilk.
How do you keep fit?
