This is a little off the beaten track for my blog considering I’m more into beauty and makeup topics, but with the fitness boom going on at the moment I decided I’d let you all in on my latest fitness journey.
So I’ll start by explaining my fitness in general. Basically, I am not fit what so ever I have never really been very fit, but when I was younger I was always skinny. My Debs dress in 6th year of school (see below Pic) was a size 6 and it was hanging on me so, that picture is always hard to look at now. I had a boyfriend for a number of years and when we broke up I found myself at the heaviest I’ve ever been bordering on a size 16. I have since then fluctuated between a 12 and a big 14 (which I am now). I have always felt like I’m not meant to be this big especially since im only 5 foot tall.
I have trained with a number of trainers over the past year but never really clicked with any of them or my life took a down turn and typical me I didn’t want to leave the house. I recently left a horrible job and found myself getting the job I’ve always wanted as Assistant Manager of a makeup counter in Dublin. Now I have to look polished and perfect all the time for work, so I need to get my ass in gear (literally!).
I joined Fighting Fit Gym earlier this year but didn’t put my heart and soul into it because my head was somewhere else and I couldn’t get the motivation. Now I have my dream job and life seems to be getting better I want the body to match it. Last Monday I took the hard decision to walk back through those gym doors and start all over again.
I got weighed in last Sunday before I started and found out I was heavier now than I was when I had started the first time with them. Now this didn’t shock me at all because I was going through a horrible time and wasn’t leaving the house and I was eating junk. Now the other down side to this was that I now find the classes even tougher than I ever have because my fitness has taken a hit along with my waistline!
So I’m doing 4 classes a week for 12 weeks and hopefully by Christmas I will be half way to my goal size. I’m not going to say goal weight because it’s not about weight for me I don’t care if I’m 16 stone or 9 stone as long as I fit back into a size ten dress by next summer I’m happy, because I’ve numerous weddings and hen parties next year.
I think by declaring this publicly it gives me the motivation to do well and also the embarrassment if I don’t do it!!
So fingers crossed I can keep my head in the game this time and with the help of Stephen, Brandon and Chris I will be fit and happy again in no time.
Also they have a referral scheme so mention my name that I referred you and you may get a nice wee discount for their classes.
