I’ve been working my backside off this week – quite literally.
I told you a few weeks ago that I had hired the services of personal fitness trainer, Tristam Murdoch, who has been whipping my butt into shape at Fitness First in Fratton.
Well, I can now reveal there’s a very good reason for this.
I am shaping up for the trip and a project of a lifetime.
I’ve been offered the chance to film a new travel TV series pilot and will be heading off to some incredible countries, including South Africa, Asia and Australia.
I can’t wait as this is something I’ve been working on for about a year now.
Like everything in my industry though, it can take a decade to get sorted, even longer for a decision to be made, and even then there are absolutely no guarantees that anything will come off.
I never understood why people who set out to follow their dreams end up quitting and opting for a normal job.
But after all the hard work I’ve had to put in, I really do get it now.
Following your dreams can be tough; however’ I’m getting there, and this trip is a nice little payback for all my efforts – not that the hard work has stopped!
As I’m going to be on camera, I’ve enlisted Tristam’s help to get me fit. Considering I go in four weeks it’s one hell of an ask but we’re getting there.
In fact, I was delighted when one of the other trainers came up to me and said how fantastic I was looking. He’d been checking out my booty – my new and improved booty that is.
My trainer works me so hard and to the point of no return.
When I am nearly dying on the floor, gasping for breath because I simply can’t continue, he looks at me disapprovingly and simply says: ‘Do you want to look good on TV Cheryl or not?’
Damn. He really knows how to appeal to my weak spot.
Sometimes we all need someone to give us a kick up the bottom and Tristam certainly does that.
Let’s just hope that when I’m on that beach in Australia in my teeny-weeny polka dot bikini, I’m the envy of all the Aussie babes.
Probably not, but a girl can hope.
