Forced into a new gym...eep!

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Whoa, has it really been over a month since I've blogged? No wonder my clothes have been so tight...I always do better when I'm active.
Anyway, I started going to the gym a little recently, since it's gotten so hot out lately I can't be outdoors. Boy was I surprised to see how dead it was! I thought maybe those new years's resolutions wearing off, or everyone hitting the beach with the weather.
Then I found out the gym location is closing! Not the whole chain, just my location, due to the landlord deciding to take a different route with the complex with all the minor crime going on. (Break-ins, etc, nothing crazy but enough to be upsetting.) So, the gym will be gone on the 30th!! Nooo....
I have a choice, I can go to a whole new gym, or a different, not as convenient or nice or well equipped location. I nearly had a meltdown, I can't do a new gym! My current one is the ONLY one I have ever been to, and it's ladies only, so I'm more comfortable.

What to do, what to do....I don't do well with change, unless it's on my own terms and then I can handle it. Ugh this has me so freaked out! I don't really want to go to a mixed-sex gym, but I don't want to go to the other location, either, as it's not all that convenient. Then again, neither is the other gym's location...bah.

Just thought I'd share the latest gym-drama, lol!! Hope everyone is well. :)

    I don't like changes that weren't my idea either....let's hope the new gym is welcoming and inspiring!

    What a bummer, know what you mean, I had a gym close on me and they did not have another one that was opened near me

    When I was younger I freaked out at the thought of going to a co-ed gym, but pretty much had to at school. And you know what? None of the guys are looking at you. Seriously. Nobody cares. I know it's hard to imagine but they are engrossed in their own workout and no one pays you any attention. I PROMISE!

    That's a bummer! A girl at work is having the same issue (she goes to a Curves, which is the only female-only I know of) and now she had to change locations. It's not very far but in a heavy traffic area. Since she has been going over 10 years, she made the change but isn't happy about it either!

I can't imagine going to a GYM anyway (I don't care female or male, I had enough smack talking and gawking when I used the fitness center at uni--I'd not pay gym prices for that...I *hide* when I work out ;p)

Good on your even GOING!
