Single Girls Need to Look Good?

Not that i wasn't concerned about this before, but there is a certain comfort that comes with being in a long term relationship. I no longer have that. I have actually battled weight issues since my university days when i went from 'chicken back' to a full fledged 'chicken'. Unfotunately my five month sojurn into pregnancy didn't help either and i put on more weight which had seemed impossible to lose. However, during my year abroad, i lost a lot of pounds and returned home looking svelte and hot!!! These pounds, i searched for and took back and probably found a few more here and there, especially after surgery. I am again seeking a way to get rid of them and so joined the much heralded Gymkhana located at the Hilton Hotel in New Kingston.

I have never seen so many bodies that look so good! Talk about inspiration! Well i started on Monday and have been every day except one. The thing is, i really feel on a high when i leave and this continues way into the next day. Is this the start of a gym obsession? I certainly hope so!!! Will i get that hot bod that i am seeking? I certainly hope so. I have also started playing tennis again and i am aiming for at least one tennis session weekly. My first session back was really good given that tennis is such an unforgiving sport, punishing even the slightest betrayal with a loss of form. I wasn't even as tired as i expected to be.....though i slept for like half a day once i got home.

Well it is friday, and though i have no idea where i am going, some mates and i are hitting the town...Kingston here I come!!!!

I wonder where single ladies go in Kingston nowadays...

Ghymkana (or however it's spelt) has replaced Spartan as the "poser" gym!

Anyway, since you go there, be sure to do the Pilates classes that Susan teaches. She's very very good.

I'm a spartan-ite myself, home of the beautiful Miss Jamaica

I am a confirmed spartanite myself...but i followed Ruel cos i needed his expertise...that was my first thought about gymkhana too..but i guess its up to the individual whether they want to pose or not....pretty sure i wont be doing pilates...much too high strung for that!!!

Good choice in Gym. That's where I'd be hitting up to find the cute ladies if I were home in JA.
