So I thought I might as well get my money's worth from being on a hypnotherapy course, and on Sunday I got one of the students to hypnotise me and give me a post-hypnotic suggestion to go to the gym more often (i.e. 'at all' - I was feeling so rough until Easter I got out of the habit).
The experience was pleasant - in my mind I was a child playing on the beach and a voice, like that of ghod, issued from teh heavens 'GO TO THE GYM, COMMUNICATOR'.
So, last night, I put on my trainers and went to the gym, like a zombiefied automaton, with my resistance gently overcome by the Power of Hypnotism. Now let's see if I can keep it up.
