Cheers To Good Health

My weight has been slowly increasing along with my weekly running mileage … FFS

Same thing happened last year when I was marathon training … FFS

You just wanna eat all the things all the time … FFS

Your brain can no longer register the difference between ‘Im so bored’ hungry and ‘I really am hungry’FFS

Yes, it’s only a couple of kilos but when you’re as tall as a midget on growth hormones it’s really quite noticeable … FFS

Unfortunately after you’ve been running for awhile your body pays you back by not burning as many calories as it once did … FFS

So losing the 2 kilos of chocolate, wine, bacon and butter is fucking hard work … FFS

For this reason, I decided I needed to mix up my training a little because it looks a little like this ….





I tried a beginner’s CrossFit class and for a brief moment I almost talked myself into signing up … No FFS

I have an addictive nature and could see the pleasure in the WOD, intense training, lifting and cultish membership … No FFS

Then I remembered – I’m lazy … FFS

Some guy came running into the CrossFit garage with a weighted vest and did a headstand right in front of me … FFS

I wanted to shrink back and disappear into the wall … FFS

I have never was the acrobatic type … FFS

I attempted handstands as a kid and always ended up with a mouthful of grass and double gees … FFS

Although some might call my tipsy drunken dance moves acrobatic … No FFS

I looked around the Crossfit room and imagined what it would be like in the Wet Season with 98% humidity and dozens of hot and sweaty bodies and decided it wasn’t for me … No FFS

The instructor timed us doing sets of air squats and pushups for 2 minutes … FFS

My thoughts switched back to joining a gym. A lovely air-conditioned gym … No FFS

Whilst I searched online, my lovely friend Sue did all the actual running around and looked at them all … No FFS

Meanwhile, I could not lift my arms for 4 days from the 2 minutes of actual CrossFit I completed … FFS

We finally found one we liked and now I have zero excuses for not staying fit during the Wet Season … FFS

I have access to 2 gyms one of which has 24-hour access … No FFS

I’m often awake at 3am with chronic insomnia so I’m just going to get up and go to the gym … No FFS

Who the hell are we kidding here??

Anyway, we had to do a special safety induction at the 24-hour gym which lasted a whole 10 minutes … No FFS

Hard work!!

Afterwards, we had to go drink wine for an hour or two … No FFS

I see this joining a gym plan working out brilliantly … No FFS

So freakin’ glad I paid for an upfront 12-month membership … No FFS

HB was not so happy about that part .. FFS

A few cross words were muttered … FFS

But like he always says ‘You can’t put a price on good health’!

Check out my last episode of FFS Friday for more riveting entertainment. 

Make my day and share your weekly whine with me over on the MFL Facebook Page.

    you make me laugh Sarah. I gave up the gym when I took up running as I put on weight when I joined the gym and lost it when I started running. I have a yoga app and also a 7 minute workout one on my iPad which I do in between.

    Thanks for sharing – I know exactly what you mean!

    I started my fitness kick in May and now find myself plateauing now…I think I am too creative in my excuses NOT to sign for the gym…But I know it’s coming- no more excuses with a 24hour gym!
