Exercise Update

Tomorrow I start week two of my new exercise routine at the gym.  I've actually been surprised by how much I enjoyed week one; this is definitely down to the trainer who designed my fitness programme; it has a bit of variety and doesn't keep me doing one thing for too long (a one-way ticket to boredom for me).

I start off doing a quick warm up on the rowing machine, followed by 10 minutes on the recumbant bike and 10 minutes on the cross trainer.  With the cardio out of the way I move onto the toning exercises for arms, legs and abs, and I'm out of the gym in about an hour, total.

In this first week I was at the gym on Monday and Tuesday, had a break on Wednesday, and was there again on Thursday and Friday.  My plan is to keep at this routine for 6 weeks and then go back to my trainer for a new, hopefully harder, plan.  

Obviously in the first week I haven't noticed any difference in my body, apart from everything hurting, but I'm certain that if I keep up this pace I'll notice some changes for the better.  I feel like I'll be able to start making some changes to my diet moving into this next week too.  I'm not planning on anything drastic, just cutting out anything processed and laying off the unhealthy snacks during the week.  On the weekend, I'll be taking a complete break from the gym and going easy on the diet restrictions.

Roll on the day when I can start buying some new clothes for my new size.
