Here goes nothing...

Monday, April 22, 2013

Ok, so I am new to blogging, so please bear with me.... I'm sitting here thinking about going to the gym (after my husband gets home from there). He normally goes of a morning, and I go do my thing anytime after that. I always go alone. I hate going alone. Now, when I'm on the treadmill, it doesn't bother me. I just turn my mp3 (yes, I said mp3....I know...it's old)...player on, pop in my earbuds and away I go. I get into this zone, and I love it. Now when it comes to the weight machines....I hate doing them alone. I find myself comparing me to the others in the room. The ones doing the machines that I can't or haven't done yet. Honestly, I don't even know what machines are best for me to use for the results I want to get. I'm very self-conscience, always have been. It's getting alot better, though. There are a couple shirts that I used to have to streach out to fit me right and now I don't have to do that. I am proud of myself for doing this. I am worth it! My kids and my family are worth it! Yay ME!

    It's a big deal just getting to the gym. Don't compare yourself to others when you get there. Think of all the people who didn't even make it there! Ask at your gym whether they offer a personal training session or at the least someone that can show you how to use the machines. Usually most places will include one 'orientation' session where someone in the know will show you around and maybe even work out a routine for you to work on.

    I also am wanting to start going to a gym here where I live but, cannot get hubby to take me. I do not drive so he would have to take me. And I think he could stand to lose some weight himself emoticon .

    Great job! Also, most gyms have staff who can show you how to use the machines you haven't tried yet. They will also be able to tell you which ones will best suit your goals. It's way cheaper than a trainer (it is free), but you still get the info you need.

    You don't have to worry about anyone else. All you have to worry about is being better than you were yesterday. Don't worry about the machines. I don't like them either. emoticon
