Games, contests, round robin exercises, filling in our booklets, finally it was my turn and I was shown my statistics.
To be honest I was a bit disheartened. I had worked extremely hard, didn't waste time getting ready, completely extra sets while waiting, always one of the last to finish before breaks. Without intending to I think I had expected a greater change or had just hoped for it perhaps. To me it looked like my after photo was my before photo!

The other diagrams and stats indicated some but little change, although all the changes were for the better so that was a relief. I was booked for my follow-up appointment, given my menu of exercises, and that was that.

|the only one that didn't get better was my weight!|
As I walked back to the station I reflected that the clinic itself may be over, but it's clear that the work has really only just started. I have 3 months of travelling ahead of me before I get home - how the heck am I going to do 30 minutes of work every day on the road? Adapting my surroundings to fit? Am I really going to be hanging off doors or lying on a bed kneeing the mattress as hard as I can? I think I see some rather amusing blogposts ahead. (you are either promised, warned or threatened depending on how you see it!)
