This week is going on FOREVER!!!! But, I am now over the hump and it's downhill from here!
I woke up this morning and nixed the gym idea again - I need to stop this!! I am still sore (pretty much just my hamstrings now) but I plan to attack workout B at home tonight. There is one move it says to use a squat rack bar, but the first workout is supposed to be done pretty much body weight only, so I think I can sub a broom stick. There nis another move that uses a cable machine that I can just use my resistance bands.
I do think that getting to know the moves at home before hitting the gym will make me feel more confident. I know it shouldn't even be a thought but I don't like that I'll be sticking out like a sore thumb doing these exercises in the corner of the gym. Hopefully I will get over this quickly. Has anybody else overcome this fear of being watched while doing an unconventional workout at the gym?
Even if I switch to doing my workouts on T-Th so that I can use the fitness room I know plenty of other people use that room too so I still wouldn't be alone. I can go into a raquetball court but everyone can still see me........ and I'd need to come and go for the very few exercises I do need more than dumbbells for.
Again, I know this is silly - I shouldn't care, but I do. Everyone who is at the gym at 6am is usually there every day - so it's not like they will just forget me! They will see me all the time!
I'm sure not as many people will be paying attention to me as I think and there is no rational reason for this fear. It's not like I've ever talked to any of these people or see them any where other than the gym. What do I do to get over this?! HELP!
