#Fitness Relapse

I relapsed. I took off my gym clothes and didn’t put them on for two weeks. At first it was because I got lazy. Then I realised itwaa because I was disappointed with my one month progress report. Basically according to the scale I had put on more weight.

I tried to get over that disappointment and I succeeded. But then I had to get over another hurdle…training alone. It sucks! I normally train with two colleagues but they aren’t training for ironman, they’re just gym members. At first, staying motivated was incredibly easy; I had a plan and I was working to achieve my goal. But as time went by, I realised I needed more motivation.

After two weeks of not going to the gym, I returned with an hour session on the treadmill. It was great but not enough to keep me motivated. Anyway, I’m back and I’m praying for new strength to keep me going.

  1. Hey! I’ve just recently joined a gym too and I’ve noticed that I put on weight since joining as well. I didn’t understand at first because I’d sorted my meals out so I was eating healthy too. But I started doing some research and because you’re using muscles that you probably wouldn’t before starting the gym, then they start to build up a bit. And so instead of losing weight, you gain muscle weight!

    I know, it absolutely sucks… but keep at it and you’ll start noticing a difference.
    Don’t look at the weight on the scales, just make sure you’re happy with the way you look! xx
