    I went to my first spin class in about a year

    When the sweat falls from the brow

    after a tough workout I don't think there's anybody who wouldn't feel proud, sharp and confident. Gymming is a great way to get out of a rut and feel better about yourselves. Try it!

    If you're at the gym looking like this,

    I hate you. Go home. You're done. Yes, I'm jealous that your genetics allowed you to be naturally thin. And maybe you did have to work for your muscle tone, but you're making me feel bad over here trying to run off my genetics. πŸ˜’

    I joined the gym in October

    and have never been happier about a decision! Since joining I've felt like I've found my personal safe haven, where I can think about everything, or nothing. Something about the gym that I find feels so warm and welcoming!
