Last week’s topic: Fears
This week’s topic: Fitness
This is a bit of a tough subject for me, and something that I’ve struggled with probably my whole life. I’ve never been a very athletic person, and physical things don’t come easy to me.
I’ve had a gym membership to my local ladies’ gym for at least 6 or 7 years now. The sad part is, I don’t use it much. I’ll get really gung-ho about going for maybe a couple of months, and then I just…stop going. Life gets in the way. There’s so many things I’d rather be doing, so I just get busy and can’t seem to find the time for it, even though I know I need to make time.
That being said, I do enjoy working out. It releases a lot of endorphins, so I feel great afterward even if I’m sweaty and exhausted. I feel like I actually accomplished something! I also really love my gym: It has a tanning bed, a pool, a hot tub, a sauna, and a steam room, and all of that is included in my monthly membership of $15. It also has free daycare – which doesn’t matter now, but it will be nice when the time comes that I do have kids.
As I talked about in last week’s Heartbeat Weekly, I want to start going more often because I feel like I need to take better care of myself, and as of lately I’ve been getting pretty chunky. I also need to start eating better!
