TLDR: been away from the gym a long time, need inspiration to get back.
I'm having a lot of trouble. I went to Hawaii back in mid January and gained about 5 pounds in a week while I was there and I haven't been able to lose it. My dog was hit by a car and in the past month I've had to spend all my time indoors with him watching him. He is finally sleeping through the night but I've been woken up a lot during the night. I also had the flu! So I can't go for long dog walks with my dog any more (but hopefully he will be back where he was in a month or so). He is getting better quickly. And I think I can get back to going to the gym today.
But it is really hard to get inspired to go back to the gym after gaining those 5 pounds and missing sleep and just feeling overall sluggish. I worry about leaving my dog alone because he hates being alone. I guess I can leave him in a crate in the car though.
It is just hard because I used to live in a small beach town, Santa Cruz, and I could hike in the Redwoods and walk on the beach and that was how I got my exercise, and now I have to adjust to working out in a small gym indoors and it is just so unpleasant compared to my old ways of exercising (also salsa dancing sometimes even outside next to the beach) but I can do zumba classes at the gym which i enjoy...
I don't know... I am planning on going to a spin class today at noon, so hopefully i can get that done and i will probably feel better afterwards, so there's that, i just wish i enjoyed it more. like the exercise i used to do in santa cruz. oh well.
