First Full Workout While Flatmate Was At Home

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

So, this may seem silly but this was an incredibly big deal to me.

Today, for the first time I did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred while my flatmate was in the flat! I did it in my room and hopefully it didn't disturb him too much but I'm so pleased with myself. I gave it everything I had and I am really starting to enjoy it!

I've always been too embarrassed to do this before (he's a bit of a fitness freak, cycles to work, does triathlons etc - we have very little in common!) but today I gave myself a long pep talk at work: think how good you feel after, remember how working out relieves your stress? you live there too (and pay him rent! - he owns the flat) and also BECAUSE YOU'RE WORTH IT. Well, it's a cliche for a reason, right?

So, yes, well done me. Going to give myself a massive pat on the back, have dinner and then reward myself by working on my CV. Okay, not that exciting but you can't have it all.

And, woo first blog entry! \0/

    That is a big deal! I haven't met anyone yet who was born a fitness freak--we all have to start somewhere, right?? So hopefully he is going to cheer you on! emoticon

    I can understand it being a big deal.

    I used to not want to do any kind of exercise in front of my partner. It doesn't bother me at all now though, but it was tough for a while.

    Good for you!

    I completely understand! I am still uncomfortable doing my video workout when my husband is home! Though, I have gotten to where I will do my weight exercises while we watch TV together.
