I Love Going to the Gym

    Okay so...... Hiking is getting rough on my

    lower body. Hips, knees, feet...... Well since my job requires so much travel, it is hard to get a good workout in. So on non travel days I work out at Lunch and again after work. This week I bagged the travel and actually got in 9 workouts! So my point is there is always a way...

    I'm not gonna lie. My enthusiasm

    for it waxes and wanes. I don't love it on the first day back after a month or more of not going. I love to go when I've gotten into the habit, I don't dread it, and it's not such a struggle. Exercising is so much more mental than physical. If you think about it, everything is...

    I actually start to feel a little depressed

    and out of balance if I miss more than 3 workouts. Anyone else have that experience?

    It's such an important part of my life.

    I do it for the endorphins. Sure I could eat better but I'm a foodie! I workout 4-5 times a week. I walk out feeling like a model :)

    The best feeling in the world is being sore

    after a good workout. It means you accomplished something.

    So much that I train twice a day.

    The results are addicting and I love the feeling of building muscles. Fitness has given Mr many ups and downs in my life but it's something I could not live without.

    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. 😒

    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!

    Two and a half years ago a gym opened up in my

    hometown. I looked at myself in the mirror and I was genuinely concerned about my health. I joined the gym and I pushed myself to keep going, and keep healthy. I can't believe how much exercise I am now able to achieve and how far I can push myself.
