1st day back in the gym with workout partner issues.
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
So here I am.....12 days after feeling like a complete loser I finally make it to the gym. No, I did not wait this long to start back working out it just took some time getting my workout partner to leave the house. I REALLY have to find a new workout partner. Anyway, back to the update.....well today I made it to the gym and afterwards I felt WONDERFUL! I mean I REALLY missed it! Maybe I over did it a bit but I did it. 45 mins on the eliptical, total body weight training and 20 mins of 1:1 interval walk/run on the treadmill. It reminded me of what I have been missing by being cramped up in the house working out.
Go figure, I love being around other people pushing towards a goal and dripping with sweat! I often looked over at my workout partner as she texted with her iPhone, listened to music and surfed the net with her tablet.....I thought to myself that she was missing out. How do I tell her that?! I want to sit her down and tell her that she needs to be more focused on her fitness goal and less focused on those items that were cluttering up her hands. I could see if she was using them to improve her workout but she was not doing that. So I am currently looking for a new workout partner.
Don't get me wrong she is a VERY nice person and a great friend but our workout drives are totally different. So as I continue to workout with her I am going to try my best to tell her how I feel because it is HARD ENOUGH trying to keep my own head in the game and stay positive. I need someone that is going to be positive with me and not complain. Perhaps she will come around.....I mean she needs me to be there just as much as I need her to be there....we ALL need support. Right?!
Maybe I will make blogging a weekly thing to help me vent my stress. I think I need that! In time I may even help someone just like you all have helped me. Thank you all for reading my previous blog post and sending me those words of comfort that I needed. ((HUGS & KISSES))
