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?
