The Gym..Time to wear the big Girl Pants
Saturday, January 25, 2014
I have recently joined a local gym. I'm always so imitated by the gym. But i'm taking the approach, I don't who said this, but credit to whoever is the originator. If I do what I always did, I will get what I always got. I thought if I move my self out of my comfort zone, then maybe I'll be encouraged. The gym offers what seems like fun classes. A Zumba class, a pilates class, kick boxing, cycling. They even have a pool. But you know there there's this thought that gets in my head, that says girls built like me don't go to the gym. I'm fat, I'm uncoordinated, trust me they go left, I go right.
I know the right thing to do, is to just go, to just do it. It's just these are things I struggle with. I went last week, and well it felt okay. I don't think I'll ever be one of those converts that will end up loving exercising. But I do acknowledge that I must get moving, I need to bend and flex and just go. I do a lot at home. I walk a lot, I wear my fitbit pedometer which I love. But trying to follow the tv or exercise videos. I find I stop to easy,when I know I need to keep going. So that's why I think the classes will be good. I'm afraid, I'm nervous, but I am anxious to see how I do. Tomorrow will be an orientation type of thing.
So time to put the Big Girl Pants On and Just Go For it.
