She's joined the Gym!!!! Wowee, watch those 'bingo wings' melt away...

Hi All,

Before I start on the above news, I must just reassure all you Aussie girls, that despite becoming a true-blue British person, I am still every bit the Aussie I always was.  Do you think I could give that up for anything???

I am still now and always will be an Aussie with an Aussie passport...I'm just British too. Good now that's settled I can tell you my real news...you may have guessed by the cluey title...I'VE JOINED THE GYM!

I've finally found a good use for working for the NHS...I get a massive discount of gym memberships! Who Knew? Well I guess I did know, I just couldn't imagine me every doing regular exercise!

My husband has even joined with me as they've agreed to give him the same discount as me and we are now official gym-bunnies.

I've really been enjoying the good feeling of exercising and since we stopped getting Sky TV, the evenings are getting so boring, staying home doing nothing is pretty terminal! Specially now eating and drinking copious amounts of red wine are off the agenda.

I've been going for a long walk with a friend one night a week, tennis, and tag rugby on another couple of nights and I've even been using the eliptical trainer a bit, but it's so boring...I'm really looking forward to using the weights machines to tone up my upper arms and doing lots of fun classes.

I've got my induction tonight to get me started, so that should be good fun.  I might even try a Zumba class and see what all the fuss is about! Look out body, you are gonna feeel the burn...


  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog and I am glad it was interesting!

  2. Awesome! It's great that you joined a gym, but a discount, too?! That is just too cool!

  3. Yay!

    Please let us know about Zumba. I hear so much about it, but I'm kind of afraid to try it out!

  4. How great that hubby joined with you...I hate the cardio equipment and would much rather do classes too

  5. I love Zumba! I took my first class on Tuesday and can't wait till the next on one Saturday!
