Serious Social Anxiety

Monday, January 09, 2012

Blah! So the guy that I saw when I set everything at the gym up said that at 5 am there probably wouldn't be many people at the gym... boy did he lie!! Granted, I didn't get there until 5:45, but that place was packed! I did my ten minutes on the stationary bike to warm up and I was able to do 3 leg strength training machines before all the "barbies" began taking over and there weren't any leg machines available. When I went to see if there were any cardio machines available I was put off by most of them being taken and I just paniced and left instead. So I had a mini work out this morning. I'm excited that I at least got up and went. I had to try not to think about going as I was getting ready because I kept trying to talk myself out of going. I'm going to have to get over feeling so anxious about working out infront of others. I know an option is to do cardio at home, but that just doesn't happen. Though, it may need to. Once my kids wake up it gets to be really hard because my little ones then get all in my way and try to do it with me. It's cute but very distracting and hard to work out when you're trying to dodge little ones.

My diet was less than healthy yesterday. Today's a new day with new options to eat healthier. :) I'm going to restart my spark diet here and I'm looking for my spark book so that I can restart that as well. It's worked in the past even without me being very consistent with it so if I'm consistent I'm confident lasting changes will happen.

    Congratulations on getting to the gym. I am in awe of your commitment. And I know you will achieve your goal this time.

    Yes, BrewMasterBill is right, the "resolutioners" will begin to fade away in the next 6 weeks.

    I commend you on your fortitude! emoticon

    I have a home gym, so I cannot speak from direct experience, but I know a few folks that go to the gym and they've been complaining pretty regularly about "resolutioners" filling up the place. It's the worst the first 2-3 weeks in January, apparently. They said usually the crowd thins after the first bout of inclement weather or the end of January, whichever comes first. So hang in there! hehe.
