Road to Fitness
I've been in and out of the hospital (just for check ups and consultations) quite often in the past few months and after spending about a day in Medical City last week, I decided it's time I did something about my health. Hehe.
I've haven't really been sick much, but I feel that I'm now weaker. Probably comes with age since I'm nearing the big 30 already. Which is why I finally decided to go for that gym membership that I've been thinking about since last year. Hahaha!
I tried to stay away from the gym as much as I can because to me, it looked, well... intimidating. I tried playing badminton instead but only lasted a couple of weeks because I seriously couldn't find the time to go to the courts to play. Tried jogging/brisk walking, but I eventually lost interest.
What's good about signing up for a gym membership (aside from the fact that The Memet paid for my personal trainer. lol), is that Fitness First has a branch in my office building which is super duper convenient for me. They also have a branch in Robinsons Metro East which The Memet can frequent during weekdays. Going forward, we'll also be spending QT in their Metro East branch during weekends. =D
I'm loving the personal training so far. The Memet knows me as a "quitter" when it comes to sports. LOL! He signed me up for swimming lessons sometime last year and guess what... I didn't learn. Hahaha! After about an hour in the pool, I'm like "I'm tired. Let's go home". But with the personal trainer, I can't just say I quit. Hehe. See here, I already have some "homework" for this week. It's mostly cardio.
I'll only meet with my personal trainer once a week (during weekends), and that's when we'll work on my strength and resistance. I failed most of the tests that she did on me yesterday. Hahaha! Balance = Failed. Core = Failed. What else? I can't remember. I just know that I only passed a couple. Hahaha! Oh well.
I'll keep you guys posted on my progress. Hopefully, I'll be a whole lot fitter (is that a word?) before the end of this year. Wish me luck! :)
