...that after years of avoiding strength work I am finally admiting that I like it? Well I do! I always thought it would be soooo boring, but it isn't, because I am only doing something for 2-3 minutes at a time! After that I move on to the next machine/move. Perfect for my easily bored and hyperactive little brain! I am going to do my strength tomorrow and make an appointment for an assessment and a new programme with the gym trainer. I have upped all my weights at least twice since beginning the programme and have gone from holding a plank for 15 seconds to holding for 30! I would like a programme that is longer (currently 20 minutes) and that uses more free weights (currently all machine except for the plank, to get me used to being in the strength area).
In other news, I 'came out' on facebook. Announced my weight loss to date. So far the only comments I have been getting are telling me not to lose anymore (hey, thanks person who hasn't seen me in 10 years, but you have no idea what my weight is) and telling me that 5kg in 6ish weeks is too much too soon (it is 800g per week, which is fine) and asking me if I have done a cleanse or something! Hint for my facebook friends, the correct responce is "yay, great work!". Now I know why I confine my weight stuff to spark, y'all are so much nicer and more understanding!
