1 Gym- joined last week on 13th September 2009, 5:17 pm

Well I joined the gym last week, not really been very much for the past 7 years since having children so thought now they are both at school, time to sort me out. Well I have discovered a little problem to all this exercise malarky, I come home and eat double the amount of calories I have just burned off, so how does that help?
The gym has also gone very high tech, have a little computer key with my "personal trainer on" have to pop this in each machine, so the big brother personal trainers know what you have done, other downside is the gym is like a giant fish bowl so the whole world sees my fat bum bouncing around, thank god for industrial strength lycra.
oh by the way I am eating a bowl of icecream whilst typing this so I better go back to the gym tommorrow, ah ha ha Rolling Eyes

Heeheee!! i do that! with chocolate biscuits but im really trying to be good now.

I am convincing myself if i have riced and veggies or salad stuff for lunches than i can have nicer stuff for dinner Razz

Plus my partner doesnt eat alot of meat and im not having as much energy as i used to so im going to try meat and rice for lunch now instead! Very Happy

Im lucky my gym is very small and i get there for 10am so theres no one there but me the receptionist and cleaner. But i have been in a gym like you described best thing to do is plug yourself into an ipod or tv if they have them on the machines and pretend that everyones else whos in there isnt there! lool

3 Gym not so bad on 13th September 2009, 6:11 pm

Well I dont feel too bad, you know that feeling, when you panic you will look crap on the beach in your bikini and expect everyone else to have a perfect bod, but when you get there its not that bad as there are as many people bigger than you as are smaller. Well its like that, there are a few women with hot bods (aspirational) a few like me (a couple extra pounds and a bit of toning required), and then a few of the (bubblies) a few more extra pounds and a lot more toning. So being in the middle just nicely average suits me, everyone either is looking at the hotties or bubblies and not me Smile

Speaking of "hot bods" do all the other women at your gym "workout" with full makeup and the tiniest shorts you have ever seen in your life? I swear I am the only one who sweats in that place confused

Yeah-the showers... I just go home and take a shower, but I get lots of dirty looks. I think I am the only one who doesn't partake in the group bathing and primping. Thank gosh I live around the corner Shocked
