Get yourself to the gym!

Sunday, October 03, 2010

My husband and I signed up for a gym memership a month or two ago. I haven't been as much as he has, and I know I need to go. I have my list of excuses as to why I can't get there, but in all honesty I think I could make it every day if I really made it a priority.

Ah, priorities. Those things that we decide are most important to us.

I hate excercising. I've never found that point that I hear other people talking about, where they get addicted to excercise. In my opinion, excercise sucks. I don't like pain and I don't like sweating. Funny thing is, by avoiding excercise I am doing both those things to myself. I have pain in my knees and my back, that I believe if I was in shape I wouldn't suffer from. There are days when I'm late for class and I try to get up the stairs fast and I get into class embarassed that I'm late and add to that I'm winded and sweaty. Lovely! Yeah, sure, that's the girl I want to be. Not.

I really am making the gym sound attractive at this point.

I think that even with my crazy schedule that I could make it to the gym every day at 1pm. I'm trying to decide if I am willing to commit to myself to do that for this week and see how it works out. I could do an half hour or even a full hour.

OK, I think I am going to do it.

I commit to myself that I am going to go to the gym this week (Sunday through Thursday) at 1 pm. Friday through Sunday my family is going to a support camp for kids with Type 1 Diabetes and their families, so I can't go then.

    Ah Yes...I know this feeling as well, i swear to you , if you look at my blog post, you will see it~

    For me, one of the feelings that keeps me going is remembering how I felt when I was Working out and when I was physically fit....like 16 years ago....If I did not really, know how that feels, I really do not know if I would have had the motivation of the first few sets, even now I am still trying to find ways to keep it going~~~~....... On the other hand, That is not the only thing I pull strength from. And I did not have this 16 years ago.

    I pulled strength from what I know ,I want, TODAY.
    That Everyday I am on this earth is an opportunity to Live it the Best I can, with what I have, right now.

    and I took inventory and I am still adjusting. And I can tell you, my freind, Never Giving Up is at the top of my list.....

    ~Going to the gym, may not be the "right" for you, or it may be and you just have to push through it, like so many people have encouraged me to do, on this site.... I am working on a Poster, to put in front of the "machine" on rainy days....I am constantly looking for ways to make it "right" for me....there are some people counting on me~

    I started with 10 minutes a day...at home...

    One day at a time, you will find your "right"...

    This exerpt from your blog fits a mantra I've been telling myself all week:

    LOSING WEIGHT IS HARD. BEING FAT IS HARD. CHOOSE YOUR HARD.
