Today I Joined the Gym

Well there's a sentence I never thought I'd hear myself say, let alone use as the title for a blog post!

The past couple of weeks I've been taking part in a campaign for Halfords, called #31FitterDays. It launched in order to encourage people to be more active, particularly during the month of January when they're on a bit of a fitness mission and are feeling extra motivated.

You might have already read my post about my Health & Fitness Goals for 2015 from late last year. I talked about how I was (and still am!) feeling genuinely inspired to start exercising again and mentioned my plans for the coming year..... just generally being more active, perhaps doing a little running, and starting some kettle bell workouts. There was no mention of going to the gym whatsoever, in fact I actually said (and I quote) 'I'm not one to run on a treadmill, or cycle on a static bike.'  But today I found myself signing my life away to do just that.

As part of the campaign Halfords gave me a Garmin Vivofit; one of those pedometer thingymajigs that you wear on your wrist and which counts your steps/the distance you've covered/the calories you've burned etc etc during the day. I've worn mine 24/7 for the last two weeks and found myself getting more than a little bit competitive. Every day I am desperate (DESPERATE) to beat my previous days stats.

Which is the main reason behind me getting my first gym membership in about seven years.... So I can keep working on my personal best. That and the fact my wobbly bits need a bit of attention before the summer of course. It's only a few months away you know. xoxo

(PS the kicks are new.... what do you think?)


  1. No one is going to miss you with those trainers - love the neon laces :)

  2. Gorgeous trainers! I need to get motivated again x
