Starting to enjoy my gym sessions

Published by Gary61 in the blog Gary61's blog. Views: 382

After a couple of weeks in the gym, I can finally say that I am now starting
to enjoy my sessions. Everything seems to be a little easier to do now and
I can now see a bit of progress in both the distances I now run and the
weights that I lift after having 3 rotator cuff injuries over my lifetime,
I'm really glad that I didn't go mad initially and built up slowly. My gym
has a Boditrax machine which shows things such as your BMI, how much
muscle and fat as well as your weight and what I especially like is my
metabolic age which is 15yrs younger than I am :).
This pump has without doubt has given me the best control I've ever had
when exercising and has just made me more comfortable with being a
diabetic which I feel is quite a sweeping statement. I have to add though
that it is not perfect by any means and sometimes I still wonder at what
my body is doing when it doesn't follow the norm, but these instances are
small and more manageable than before I had this pump.
