so i have been trying to get back on the exercise bandwagon. it’s tough, really tough if you’ve been off it for long enough. but the soreness you experience the day after an intense session is pretty great and encouraging! by intense session i mean, 15 minutes of circuits and then lying on the floor feeling sorry for myself. don’t worry, i’ll get there.
i don’t know what it is with my recent obsession with sportswear. i am hopeless at sports and pretty useless at exercising, to boot. i recently attempted Kayla Itsines’ BBG and i managed one day. ONE day. but still, you know, i want to look COOL while i’m failing to exercise. and maybe a small part of me thinks that if i look great i’ll be more inclined to workout. isn’t that how it always goes? well perhaps i need to start listening to Outdoor Voices and get my ass into figurative – and literal – shape.
i don’t know about you guys, but this time of year is kinda awful. not only do we all have to go back to work (sigh) but some of us have probably gained a few kilos over the festive season (i read this post yesterday which made me feel a lot better about that fact) and the media enjoy drumming it into our brains that we must now shed this holiday weight and become our optimal physical selves in 2014. when i think about making new years resolutions to lose weight or get fit my eyeballs roll so hard into the back of my head that i can almost see into the past when i made that resolution exactly a year ago.
