Contagious Fitness

Along with my own change in mindset, there's been what appears to be, a slow but steady change in mindset in the office as well.

To give a bit of background, I'm a PA and I work in an open-plan office with three others.
A few weeks ago, the three of them decided to give Slimming World a try, and have signed up for a full 12-week course of weigh-ins.

Initially, the girls were planning on losing weight primarily by diet alone, none of them being open fans of exercise. Now I'm not going to comment on the 'science of Slimming World', however since my own enthusiasm for fitness has been increasing exponentially, a little may be rubbing off.

Two of the girls are considering starting the c25k running programme, whilst another has just started doing fitness DVDs at home, and last weekend did a couple of workouts with her weightlifting partner.

I'll admit, it would be nice not to be the only fitness junkie around here...

Workout-wise not quite so good today. P is on a course so I had a lift into work again today, but because he arrived so early yesterday, we left home a little later today. This meant I had to use the work gym as there wouldn't have been enough time to go to the other gym I visit, and therefore my stronglifts workout today was a little 'gimped' (the work gym doesn't have a squat rack or bench rack)... Still, better than nothing I guess! :)

Today's Workout (semi-Stronglifts 5x5):
Squats = 25kg
Bench Press = 25kg
Rows = 30kg

Rowing (moderate effort, 32 spm) = 5 mins
Running (slow speed, 5.5 mph) = 5 mins
