Am I the only one who feels this way? I don't enjoy it, I've never looked forward to going to the gym, and I still don't enjoy it once I'm there. It's the last thing I feel like doing, yet it's the first thing I should be doing.
I'm guessing by the large amount of people always present at the gym, I probably am the only one who hates being there. Or maybe they really don't like it either, but force themselves to suck it up anyway, thanks to a friend called motivation that I obviously seem to be lacking. This point was proven today when I went to the gym for the first time this year, or more like the first time in way too many months, if I'm being honest. I was there for a whopping thirty minutes y'all. That's not crap for someone wanting to lose twenty pounds before bikini season. But as soon as that thirty minute mark hit, you better believe my butt was out of there in record time. So much motivation around here I tell ya.
Don't let that smile fool ya. Even when I was going to the gym for two hours everyday, I still hated it.
But at least then I had the motivation. I also thought I was fat when I took that picture. Sure, I may not have been as skinny as I had wished to be, but looking back at this makes me feel like a whale now. Which leads me to my next point.. why do (most) women always think they're fat? You think you're fat now, then a year later you look at that selfie you took today and think damn I wish I still had that body. Maybe we should all be content and come to the realization that we will never be fully satisfied. I think this is why I currently have no motivation. I look back at old pictures of myself and think what the hell have I done? How did I let this happen? Now it's way too late to reverse this. But it's all just a bunch of excuses. There's always room for improvement and we can always do better. Now back to my main point..
Am I the only one who hates working out? If you're like me, how do you get yourself excited to go to the gym? It's always been a dreaded block on my agenda and I would love for that to change. I want to be the person that looks forward to working out. How can I get there? I would love to hear your tips!
