Gotta Love an Empty Gym



I thought today would be crazy and hectic in the gym (New Years Resolutions and all) but it was completely empty! I had the space to myself for two hours for my weight training. You know what? I took advantage of it! I totally sang at the top of my lungs to the music that was playing.

It’s crazy though, the only reason why I was even motivated to go in the first place though was for the air conditioning. In Brisbane it was around 40 degrees out and it was much too hot to function. The only thing that got me off my butt and climbing 150 stairs (a little thing we call ‘the goat track’ from our Residence to the main campus) was the thought of being in air con. And let me tell you, it was totally worth it!

The last few days I’ve been eating really well on top of exercising regularly. For instance, when I woke up today I had a fruit protein shake (I’m not a morning person but these get me up and going), at lunch I had three small turkey minced meatballs (with onion and sun dried tomato inside them) with steamed veggies, and at dinner I had salmon and a salad full of raisins, sunflower seeds, Caisins, tomato, and shaved almonds. It was seriously some great food!

But yeah, I’m happy with how on track I’ve been so far. My cravings for junk food are becoming less and less. I’m not eating as frequently as I would like to during the day but it’s too hot to and my body just doesn’t want the food. 

Tomorrow I’m heading to the sunshine coast with a bunch of residence from where I live. We get back home at 5:30 so Tony and I have scheduled another run for the evening as long as we aren’t too sunburt and dead. 

Anyways, I weigh in for the first time this year Sunday morning (January 5th) so please wish me luck! I’m hoping the scales are in my favour!

  1. In my experience, the first 2 weeks of January aren’t too bad…then the insanity begins. Enjoy it while you can – it won’t be so nice for long! Happy new year!

  2. Thank you thank you! And I feel you on the whole ’empty gym’ moment.. I love the gym here when it’s not packed to the brim and I can really let rip.. I’m looking forward to getting back to it this weekend 🙂 Good luck on your journey! 🙂

    • Weekends are awesome! I find that’s normally when the gym isn’t as full due to people nursing hang overs or spending time with the family! Hope you have an awesome gym session and you feel the burn the next day! Good luck on your journey too ❤

  3. That is too funny! I posted on my FB status on New Year’s Day that I was hoping for an empty gym as well! My husband and I love to go at 8 or 9 p.m. when it’s completely empty. I like to put on my iPod and just bliss out on the treadmill. I don’t feel like people are staring at me this way. Awesome post, girl. 2014 is going to be a great year for both of us! We’ve got this. 🙂

    • I go to a gym at a university so it’s always so busy at night! I go in the afternoon when less people are there. I’m glad you know the joy of being able to bliss out on the treadmill! It’s so good!
      Keep going strong! ❤
