Week 3: Gym pain

I can positively say that I am starting to get into a better gym rhythm. This last week I went five times which I am proud of, it sure as hell was not easy though. This week also was not bad in terms of eating better and enjoying the food im making.

Monday and Tuesday I went to the gym after school which I must say is really not easy. I drive past my house on the way to the gym which means I really want to just go home and its right there. I am also finding that spending a day running after children is exhausting. I am not used to so much noise and movement being around me all the time.

Wednesday and Thursday I was drained, I had been teaching my own lessons and I had a lot of stress going on. I found out I have to apply for teaching jobs before the end of May and to be honest, I don’t really want to be a teacher. I did take Jenson for a 2km walk on Thursday which was very cute, he gets so excited about life.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday it was back to the gym. Friday was a public holiday which meant the gym was lovely and quiet.  Eating wise Friday was hard as we had a picnic and there was cake. I wasn’t as tempted but it was still there.

Waking up this Monday I can feel the pain. My legs hurt, my arms burn and my bum is so sore. I never knew it was possible for a bum to hurt so much.

    LOL, sore muscles are the worst. But at least you know they’re getting stronger!
    It’s awesome you’re getting back into a gym routine though. I’ve been struggling to keep up with my 3x a week. But I’ve been going strong for 6 weeks now. Hopefully I can keep it up!

    GO ON GIRL!!!! You are doing it, that’s all the matters! It’s great to hear how committed you are to the gym! See the pain as the reminder that you just absolutely smashed the gym!!!

    I can definitely relate! I’m trying to get more into working out by slowing easing back into it and it sucks because I used to be in such good shape but I’ve really fallen off the wagon. I personally love being sore because it’s so satisfying, just hate dragging myself to the gym straight from work! It really cuts into my night and I hate it, so I’m going to try for 3 nights a week and try to ease it up to 4 or 5 when I get more motivated. It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only person forcibly dragging myself to the gym straight after a long work day!
