The fitness is there – it’s the fat covering it that’s a pain

Putting squidge in the creche and joining the gym was the best decision I have ever made for myself and my body.

I’ve been to the gym 3 times now and bubs has been settling into the creche for his hour and a bit play sessions alright.

The first time I went I had really bad muscle soreness afterward and worried that it was going to take me a while to build my fitness back up. I pondered over the weekend what to do, how am I going to manage? what if bubba doesn’t settle into the creche and it all goes wrong?

I went to my second session Tuesday and I didn’t really eat the best breakfast (2 pieces of toast is just not going to cut it on a training day, lesson learned). I felt faint 3/4 of the way through my workout and had to stop. I still did pretty well though, and I had no muscle soreness!

Today was my third gym session and I felt great, it was difficult, but I managed to get through my HITT session and have a really good stretch afterward. My fitness is there, it’s come back pretty quick and I can add weights to my HITT sessions, it’s just the layer of fat over all that lovely strong muscle that is a problem. Squidge was awesome in the creche too.

I feel this fitness battle is going to be more about food than anything else. I know I can do the training, I just need to train myself to eat better, less carbs on the plate.

I think I really need to figure out, process and heal the reasons I eat for comfort and everything will get better. I have already started as the little one wants to eat everything on my plate, so I am starting to make a much more conscious effort to put good stuff on my plate so I can give it to him if he wants it.

I’ll continue the journey and talk about it more here as I go and figure things out, for now, I am just happy that the fitness is there and I can make it a bit harder.
