That 39th Exercise Diary…

Much happier this week. I created a bit of a new workout and managed to stay on track. I wrote down what I was going to do for the week and I did it all (with a little bit of shuffling around here and there)

We’re still at the Crowne Plaza Yas Island, so that’s where our gym is at! (chomping at the bit for some new scenery lol)

I’m going to do the same this Sunday and write down my week of workouts as it helped me stay on track the last seven days.

Do you have any hints or tips on how to stay on track with your workouts? Maybe you have a go-to that always ensures you end up in the gym. I’d love to hear from you, so comment below and let me know how your week pans out.
