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.
