What a busy … ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

What a busy week itโ€™s been.ย  Our final week in Spain for a couple of months.ย  I embarked on the challenge of trying to lose the 3 kgs I have gained since I had my hip replacement operation and have managed 1.2 kgs loss this week so itโ€™s progress.ย  Itโ€™s tough when you are in a new country and making new friends and socialising but in the end the head stays strong and everyone knows you canโ€™t out train a bad diet so I have been trying to focus on reducing slowly and staying sane whilst not being the party pooper and making it too obvious to everyone.

The Gym

I have been to “The Gym” at Moraira every day (one of the few places in Spain that doesnโ€™t shut for siesta time) and Dan Hills, the owner, says there are only two days of the year that he is closed and thatโ€™s Christmas Day and Boxing Day so if you are in the area for any length of time, be sure to pay the gym a visit.ย  They offer very flexible arrangements and you can pay for a day, a week, 10 days, a month etc etc.ย  The other gym goers there are very friendly and thereโ€™s a huge cross section of people from obvious body builders, to those who just want to keep fit, to the older population who are keeping fit and staying mobile โ€“ they offer classes too if thatโ€™s your thing.ย  Plenty of variety of equipment, free weights, bands etc.

Iโ€™m excited to be going to France this week โ€“ we are leaving tomorrow and I have identified a gym near our next destination (where we will be for about three and a half weeks) so watch this space for the next environment Iโ€™ll be training in.
