Land of the Long White Cloud/New beginnings

Just a quick check-in cause it’s late and I’m buggered.

Things are going pretty well here in NZ.  I’ve found somewhere to live, work is going OK and I’ve had a couple of great social outings.  My Mum has been here for the last 10 days which has been wonderful and I’ll be very sad to put her on a plane tomorrow morning.

I’ve found a trainer and we’ve had our first session tonight.  It was a bit of a fitness test (including my first ever beep test) as well as some core work and a review of the program she has written for me.  We’ve booked a regular session for Monday evenings.

I’ve got a free week gym membership trial starting tomorrow and feeling quite hopeful about it.  I took out a 30 day membership at the gym around the corner but have only been a few times – partly because of my back and partly cause it actually wasn’t that nice. So I’ve been walking every morning and stumbled across this other gym a few hundred metres down the road from the other one.  Might as well give it a go.

Goals for this year include running a half marathon in July, weight loss, and getting a bib and/or medal every month of the year (i.e. do a race every month).  Plus I want to jump off SkyTower and do the Stunt Driving course my friends bought for me before I left Australia (but is for a course here in Auckland).

That’s about it for the moment.  Slowly finding my feet and feel confident I can make new friendships, build on the ones I’ve already made and prove to be a worthwhile outstanding investment at work.
