One week left to decide on Gym
Sunday, October 07, 2012
Well my month of "trail" membership at the gym is only one week away. Now it is getting to be the time when I have to decide whether or not I want to continue. Frankly, I am having a hard time convincing myself that spending the time and money will be worth it.
The past three weeks I have been faithful of going to the gym, either with buddy or by myself. I have gone from the 30-45 minutes of just cardio to 60-90 minutes of cardio and strength training. Thought I was doing pretty good but where has it got me? I feel like I am in the same spot as I was before I started. I do not feel any different and the scale has gone up and not down- so why bother?
It has been mentally stressful. My workout buddy and I would plan when we were going to workout the following day- only to have her call or back out so I would go by myself. was not a big fan of walking into a dark gym and being in there all alone- but I did it.
I seem to be spending more time away from family only to come home and they would all be gone so I am back to "emotional eating" by myself in the evenings.
So the question I ask myself- Is the gym worth it for me? or can I get to the point of working out to videos at home in the evenings. This would save me money, keep me home, and hopefully fill my time so I am not munching when I am home alone?
