Healthy Competition???

Healthy Competition?
Healthy Competition?

Today I went to my new gym – Pure Energy – and it’s awesome, I love it. It has all the classes I want to do and loads I want to try.

My first class of choice today was UGI ball and Barre. Never done it before so didn’t know what to expect. I walked into the room and there was already a lady in there. She obviously knew I was new yet did nothing to help or ease my worries. I automatically took a dislike to her and then without even knowing WHY, I started competing with her on all the moves…. What was wrong with me? She didn’t need to be nice to me, she probably didn’t even know I was new…She didn’t owe me anything. Yet I found myself looking over to her during the class and feeling such joy when I was doing squats deeper, push ups properly…. How ridiculous am I!! And the woman was at least 15 years older than me and a good 10kgs heavier.

After that class, a few of us went on to do the spin class and this lady came too.

How disappointed was I when on the score board she came first and I came 4th.

BUT was this in a weird way healthy competition which made me go further, faster? OR was it just me being ridiculous and a sing I need to spend more time on my yoga and meditation???

I’m going to go back and hope not to see her again, but if I do I will TRY not to be competitive in an unhealthy way. I need to concentrate on ME.

That's more like it!

What difference a HOLIDAY makes

Before Thailand – felt great, was on a roll and felt like I had my exercise and food under control and there wasn’t too much stress….. What a difference a month makes.

And another thing… I was brushing my bum every time I had a shower. AND I think it worked. How to get rid of cellulite? Increase circulation to the area. Tah Dah.

HOWEVER when you stop your usual food, exercise and brushing routine then this is what happens –

I’m disappointed by my bum, my tum and my thighs.

SO I continue, and I have joined a new gym and I’m excited again!

I love holiday BUT I love coming home and getting back into my routine!!!
