Salamander's Focus on Fitness

You may already have seen that I started to focus on my need to become fitter by supporting EleanorBE in her own weight loss/fitness project. I have quickly realised that I am the type of person to check in more frequently and probably also to use a lot more words than EleanorBE has so far done. I just don't want my wordy posts to swamp her thread and her own fitness/weight loss project so I decided to start a separate thread to avoid that.

So far I have failed to get to the gym today, despite making incomplete plans to get there. I have decided against making another try tomorrow because I have a meeting at lunchtime which I am unable to reschedule and because my gym membership is an Early Bird one, I have to be there before 1600, and I can't guarantee that.

Wednesday, on the other hand, is a better choice. I have nothing scheduled until 1500 so as long as I could get to the gym by 1300 I would have time for some kind of workout. I am going to focus on my routine in the evening/before bed, and my morning routine. I think I know where I made my mistakes. So I'll be back here on Wednesday with the next instalment!

How did it go at the gym Salamander?

Hope it went well/is about too and that you're choc full of endorphins!


re: Salamander's Focus on Fitness

Hi Salamander, we are in the same boat with having fitness goals, as I just started working out in the gym yesterday. The only thing I really planned was to either walk in the park or do treadmill in gym, but I felt inspired after 15 min. on treadmill to do another 45 minutes of my floor exercises. I feel so much better now! A little sore, but in a good way. I want to keep it up so I support you in doing this too!



"Surrender and Take the Next Right Action"

Good luck Salamander!

Good luck Salamander!


I'm also increasing my exercise and will keep an eye on how it's going for Eleonor and you!

Lot of fitness wished to you,


Thank you, Wolke

It's really great to see how many of us are wanting to up the focus on fitness, or lose weight, whether it's a big project or a small one. Thank you for your good wishes - I send them also to you, for your success as we all take on what we can about our wellbeing/health.

no worries!

Hi Sal,

thanks for your private message. I still haven't worked out how to send one... No worries, enjoy your thread - we can both visit each other's and support from the sidelines!

All the very best, 


EleanorBE: Sending a private message

Thanks for letting me know you'd had my email, EleanorBE. I just clicked on your name and three options came up - View, Track and Contact. Select Contact and a "form" comes up so you can email someone. It reveals your email address, though - you may not like that.

I'm glad you understand why I created another thread for my fitness project.  :cool:

private messaging

Hi there Sal,

I won't private message anyone then - not because I don't think people here seem trustworthy, I think everyone I've read seems lovely! But one of the reasons I went for this site was the Anonymous thing. It make me feel freer somehow. Maybe when I feel so totally in recovery that I can leave the site I'll private message everyone I've got to know!

 Thanks so much for your support, look forward to seeing you here and on your fitness thread.
