Thank you to some of my beautiful readers for their support yesterday after this post I wrote, I honestly appreciate it beyond words!
Years ago, pre-babies when most of my income was disposable as was my time, I joined the same gym I walked into last night. I used to go once a week, only because that was my personal training session. At the same time, unbeknownst to me, I was beginning to suffer from panic attacks, and obviously that played a big part in why I didn’t ever rock up for a workout! I felt like people were looking at me, judging me, watching me and whispering about me, of course they weren’t, it was the attacks talking you see? So I never went andI wasted my money!
But last night, there was not a single negative thought as I walked into my first orientation session at the gym, just hopes,dreams and a hell of a lot of positivity.
Basically last night I learnt how to use all the cardio machines and had a program written up. Even when it was all done, I could’ve easily gone home, like I would’ve in the past, instead I stayed for a bit and used the treadmill and felt great for it (unfortunately I forgot my headphones so it was a tad boring!). Not only was I exercising but I felt like I was recharging myself as a Mum and a wife, there was no guilt, just enjoyment.
I’m already so looking forward to going again!
So tell me, do you go to a gym and if so, what’s your favorite bit? Or do you exercise in the great outdoors?
