    Yeah, I am. It's just that life gets in the way sometimes and that's really ffing difficult.

    December is so hectic already and now there's one more thing I have to plan to do every week. And three times too!

    Gym wins this week:
    - I went three times even though it was difficult to plan
    - one of the exercises I always do with my PT was increases in weight by 2 kg (from 6 to 8kg)
    - I added almost 20 second to my plank :D
    - Since the first time I was weighed at the gym I lost around 6% of my starting bodyweight :D (The first weight was recorded at the end of August, but I didn't start getting serious until the beginning of October)

    Who else had exercise wins this week? :D

    Disappointed to find I can't budge a 50-kilo dumbbell off the ground at all. Oh well, one day.

    Okay my favorite thing about the local gym i joined is when you log in the website gives you a live counter of how many people are in the gym so i can make sure I only go when there's few enough people that I won't have to be directly next to anyone

    Going back to bodypump after like 4 weeks off, hoping I haven't lost all my strength over Christmas. I've been going to the gym just not the classes and they're way more intense. But hey, instructor has great taste in music and he's super encouraging

    We started a really difficult routine in dance class today, and I'm still not keeping up perfectly but it brought home to me exactly how much I've improved. I couldn't have come close to keeping up a year ago, and now I'm almost there! It'll be easier once I've lost a little weight as I bulge in inconvenient places, but that's the project for this year.

    Did pretty amazingly at the gym today too, I am on FIRE this week :toot: Except I tried barbell squats for the first time and it hurts my arms like heck because that's not a position I'd normally put them in. Ow. Asked the trainer to remind me to do a small number of those with a low weight every week from now on till I get the hang of it.
