I really am not normal.
Normal people don’t start gym in December 1 week before Christmas.
Normal people don’t start gym on a Sunday.
I have been wanting needing to start gym for a while now and I have had every excuse under the sun.
I now have no excuse. I cannot say I don’t have time, because I have plenty now that I’m on leave.
I bought a Polar watch to count my calories and check my heart rate. It’s my new toy and it’s keeping me motivated. Each day I not only do the happy dance… I fist pump. Yes. That’s right. Fist pump with the happy dance when I see I have burned 555 calories or 641 calories in a session. Witness the Fitness. YAY!
Karolina has been my gym buddy and if you follow her blog about fitness and being healthy, you’ll know there is no ways I’m allowed a short cut. Greg has also been my gym buddy and it’s actually fun working out together.

It is also making me feel better when I know Christmas is 5 days away and I am going to be smashing mince pies and gammon into my face.
I’ve decided I’m making myself epic. I’m making myself extraordinary. I’m starting my New Years Resolution early. If I could stop smoking on New Years Day 2011 … I can get the body I have always wanted.
Here are some motivating pictures I’ve seen recently and I know that if I’m having a crappy day… I’ll come back to this post and re-read it.
