Confession: I like going to the gym!
Friday, January 19, 2018
I joined my local Y on Thursday of last week. I went last Friday morning at 5 am. I only walked on the treadmill and tried to get comfortable with my surroundings. My feet were blistered and sore, but I went back on Monday. My feet were beginning to heal so I walked on the treadmill then did some circuit strength training. Tuesday was a cardio day of treadmill and rowing machine. Wednesday was a snow day and I didn't have to work so I went to the gym in the afternoon...I did 45 mins on the treadmill and my feet felt better than they had the whole time, then I did circuit strength training. Yesterday was another snow day so I went in the afternoon and did my longest and hardest treadmill cardio workout and walked at an incline because my feet weren't hurting. I went back this morning at 5 am and did 45 mins on the treadmill followed by circuit strength training.
I was hesitant to join a gym because I didn't want people to see me working out. Now that I have been at several different times in the day, I feel a lot more comfortable around other exercisers...and a lot more comfortable with the machines. In fact, I enjoy it!
The gym has become a place where I can have some ME time. Yes, it's work and I get sore and sweaty, but I am getting sore and sweaty to make ME a better person...and I love it! Who knew I would be one of those people?!?!
Peace & Love
