Back at the gym

Today was my first day back at the gym after a few weeks off, I didn’t do too much as I find if I push too hard than I get a really bad headache? So I did 20 minutes on the cross trainer, 20 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes on the treadmill. I also went on the weight machine where you pull the long bar down (I don’t know what it’s called!) I always feel intimidated using the weight machines in case people think I’m doing it wrong, I know they probably don’t even notice me but it’s just one of those things. Anyway I was in a good mood today as its my first weigh day and even after my bad weekend (chips, pie, cake etc etc) I still managed to lose 6lbs! Woop to me.


This just shows me that the slimming world plan really does work for me, I don’t feel hungry, I don’t feel deprived, I have more energy and more importantly I can incorporate the meals into the family menu.

After the gym i came home and cooked an AMAZING tea for me and an exhausted Mr Swift, we had steak, potatoes and veg, mine was 1 syn because of the gravy, well worth it!


Im now planning on going upstairs and having a nice relaxing lush bath bomb bath with a brew and a book! Have a good night everyone!

    If you get a headache after or during exercise (it’s meant to be the exact opposite due to endorphins and increased bloodflow to the brain!), it usually means you don’t drink enough water, your blood sugar’s too low or your blood pressure’s too high.

    How to fix:
    -Drink water before, during and after working out.
    -Be sure you don’t exercise on an empty stomach
    -Ease yourself into the exercise, as in, do not go full tempo immediately. Gradually increasing intensity.

    It… can be caused by severe things too, and if it occurs again and again during working out… I’d suggest a doctor, just to be on the safe side.

    Congrats on your weight loss and good luck to you on your journey!
