I’ve been struggling with motivation.
I have a food alarm that goes off every few hours (fucking thing!) so that I eat more regularly. I’m having more protein. I *think* it’s making a difference in that I have been lifting some heavier weights, but the heavier weights might have happened anyway… who knows?!?!!
I bought some new gym pants and running shoes. I figured after 6 months of wearing the same gazillionty-year-old ones, I deserved … Continue Reading
I started an exercise blitz on 30 April with a 12 week program involving gym work 6 days a week (see my Check My Workouts! page for more detail), and pilates twice a week (which I have been doing forever).
Last week, I finished my second 12 week program where I was gymming 5 days a week, with pilates still twice a week.
I have just started my third 12 week stint.
Psychologically, it is … Continue Reading

I had another go at the recording I tried to make for my ‘gym bunny update’ post.

Normally, I don’t talk while I am killing myself with uber cardio. Well, okay, I might do an ‘oh my god!’ or a ‘fuck’, but I don’t generally encourage people, … Continue Reading
Yesterday was the last day of my 12 week gym blitz!!!
In the three months that I committed to, I only missed two days of my 6-day-a-week program, a feat of which I am inordinately proud. I’m pleased with the results… I mean, you saw the photo, right?!
WELL YOU SHOULD HAVE JOINED ME AND THE WORKOUT CREW!!! I sent them all a copy…
Since you didn’t join me, you get a … Continue Reading
At the end of April 2012, I started a ‘body project’ with the aim of looking more awesome naked. On 25th May, I did a call out for folks to join me in a fitness blitz. Some amazing folks heeded the call and we’re working together in a group we affectionately call the ‘Ferns Workout Crew’ (#fwocrew on Twitter).
The link below will take you to my workout log so you can see how … Continue Reading
