You are not exercising for anyone else except you!

The Scorpion!


Last time I was at the gym I did a workout named the Scorpion.  It was 4 rounds of 4 exercises by 3 different sets of exercises - see the description on the left of the photo.

Not sure I am explaining it properly and I’m not good at calculations so I just got out the really cool chalk (bought specially for me by my trainer because of my bad memory) and marked everything off on the side of the barbel stand as I progressed slowly and surely towards the finish.

It was torture but I felt sooooo good afterwards!  What a great stress buster after a hard day at work!

I have made a great effort since I left school to exercise regularly.  I ran 10K and 5K races.  I signed up for aerobics and went to the gym at least three times a week.  I bought a bicycle and rode every single day, Monday to Friday.  I weighed in at 115 lbs and was heaviest at 120 lbs.  Really cool right?  Yes, but it was easier to maintain this lifestyle when I was single and childless.  It got progressively harder and harder to keep up with exercise after getting married, having my son and trying to focus on my career.  Read more
