I know what you’re thinking. After the whole CrossFit failure, you’re probably wondering why I joined a gym. Well, I am too because I hate to work out. Sweating to the oldies felt more fun so how the heck I got talked into this is a miracle. I’m not making any promises. I have a free trial month and let’s see how much I go. I know other people get an endorphin high from working out, but I’ve never found that to be true for me. Maybe it’s because I haven’t found the right exercise routine or place. I got talked into this by a friend who’s also 50ish and even though we’ve walked a few times over the summer, she wants to lose weight. And who doesn’t want to lose weight? So we figured we’d do it together. Now let’s see if we stick with the plan or we end up stopping at Starbucks for a latte on the way to the gym one day and break the promise we just made. I could see that happening too.
How do you stay motivated to go to the gym? I could think of a hundred different things I’d rather do instead of working out. I’m average weight, but I could tone up. Self-discipline is tough for me so I’m hoping my new workout partner will have enough for us both until I start to see a difference in my body or grow to like exercise. Otherwise, this will be a short month.
I’ll keep you posted…
