I Think I Might Be A Gym Rat In The MakingTuesday, March 19, 2013
If you like the blog on Facebook (or follow me on Twitter or Instagram). you probably know by now that I joined a gym Sunday night.
I've always been a little hesitant to join a gym -- let's be real here, I'm a big girl, and I've never really had the self-confidence to go out there and think that everyone wasn't just sitting there thinking Why the heck is that fatty here? Look at her trying to use the treadmill. What a laugh! But I decided that enough was enough, and I need to do this for me, and if anybody has a problem with it, it's not my freaking problem.
I joined Planet Fitness as a PF Black Card member, which gives me access to some perks.
So a few hours ago, I went into the locker room, put on my workout clothes (obvious back fat and everything!) and headed out into the foray to get my workout on. I did half an hour on the treadmill, about ten minutes on the elliptical (my legs were a little jello-y from the treadmill, and I needed a rest), half an hour on the recumbent bike (MY FAVORITE!!! LOVED IT!!!), and then some rotations on machines, including an arm one that was hard and an extender machine for your mid-lower back that I really loved.
And you know what?
I LOVED IT!!!
It was completely unexpected. I've never really liked much physical activity before, and I didn't expect to like this, but the whole time, all I could think was I feel SO good about myself right now. And I think that's the most important thing I could have taken from this. I was sweaty and not exactly smelling my freshest at that point, and I could not have been more happy to feel so gross. I pushed myself, and I can honestly say that this is the proudest I've been of myself in a long time.
I am going to accomplish my goals. I am going to be smokin' hot. I am going to have a cute baby bump once I get pregnant.
This girl is on fire.
