Gym junkie to be?

Thanks to my awesome friend Lisa, I have started to get into gym and exercise again. We went to the Genisis Health Suite at The Palace Hotel in Paignton and at first, I was so nervous, we both were, since it was our first session. I was worried about people paying attention and watching me, which I’ve heard is not the case since everyone is doing their own thing and are all there for a reason.

It turns out that I felt so good after it and I didn’t care so much what others were thinking. I did the cross trainer, row machine, treadmill and some sit ups. I could have done more of those if I didn’t work so hard on the cross trainer! At least it was a good hour spent in the gym.

Following that, Lisa and I used the pool which was really relaxing and refreshing after the workout. It was good to get in there! We also took advantage of the spa 🙂

Thank goodness I got to go today because not only am I motivated and driven to go the gym more, but it has made me motivated to start running again since I have missed months of running for the time I’ve been here so it will be good to get into that again.

The only dilemma I have with the gym is the next time I go, I need to be a member and at the moment, I don’t have the funds to join for any of the membership deals. This is where a second job needs to come in! As soon as that is sorted I’ll be on it! For now, I hope Lisa will be fine without a gym buddy for the moment.

I feel so good after today!!

My best friend

I have a sister who is 20 years old and only a year apart from me who I am extremely close to. Her name is Sarah and she is my best friend.

For those of you who have a sibling/s do you have a close bond too? I really don’t believe in sibling rivalry and I couldn’t imagine not being close to my own sister. Most of my friends have close bonds with their siblings which is really nice because at the end of the day, they are all you’ve got. Your siblings are your flesh and blood and are always going to be there for you no matter what.

I’ve been in America for a month now and I have never been away from my sister for this long and I really miss her because I usually see her everyday. I finally got in touch with her last night and we were on the phone for a good two hours. Hearing her voice and cracking up jokes like we do at home made me so happy and grateful that I am close to someone who is so amazing and who is apart of me.

Sarah and I share absolutely everything together. I trust her with my life and I would do absolutely anything for her. We get along so well and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

There are people out there who aren’t close to their siblings for whatever reasons may be but I just can’t understand how people cannot be close to their siblings. To dislike like them, hate them. I couldn’t imagine feeling that way towards Sarah. She keeps me sane, she makes me laugh and most of all, she is THERE. Sisters are the best! And life without her would not be the same. It would be like being deaf and blind at the same time. She’s my life and I appreciate her so much. You’re the best Sarah! I LOVE YOU!
