Getting Fit: Another Update…

It’s a little over a month since I joined the gym. In that time I’ve had 4 days off, so it’s been pretty full on. I had my weekly personal training session today and I’m staggered with my current level of fitness compared to where I started. The trainer is pure evil and he really put me though it today, but I did way more than I thought was possible.

The daily interval training has worked wonders for my recovery time. Towards the end of the today’s session I finished one circuit, puked and was ready to start again in a minute. Pretty phenomenal by my standards.

The weight is coming off very slowly now. It’s hard not to fixate about the scales, but I am aware that I’ve put on a lot of muscle in this month, so the scales are not a very good indication of what’s going on. Even so, it’s kinda tough when people ask how much weight you’ve lost and you tell them you’ve killed yourself in the gym for a month and only lost 7 pounds.

So the journey continues. There is still a very long way to go, but I’m still moving in the right direction so that’s good news.

I’m hoping to speak at the InSync11 conference in Australia in a couple of months. It would be nice if I can drop a some more weight before then. It would certainly make the economy class seats feel a little better. :)
