For the last two weeks, I’ve been cycling to work almost every weekday, and then cycling to the gym almost every weekday for 20 mins on the cross-trainer and a selection of those weight machines. Then cycling home. Even eating breakfast every morning. (Although it makes me hungrier at lunchtime – and going to the gym makes me ravenous at the end of the day!) And today is the end result.
My body aches in a fair few places that it didn’t ache in before – but the scales haven’t budged an inch. I did feel a bit healthier for a while but that’s not exactly the end result I want. My boss has lovingly commented that I look “sleeker” but that’s probably because she’s seen me changing into my gym gear and concluded I’m going to the gym.
The end result – as far as I can tell – is that I ache more. Might be slightly easier to get into my trousers, my arms look a little more muscly and my shoulders are a little better defined but that doesn’t seem to be worth the effort! Oh, and my alcohol tolerance has gone through the floor – but it was never that high to begin with…
Well, I’m off to my parents this weekend so I’ll have to see if they notice any difference.
