I know I’m late today! Trust me though, it’s not because I’ve been slacking. Quite the opposite.
Today my theme is Just Do It, thanks Nike, don’t sue me for using your slogan.
I’ve talked about a few bits of planning that have helped out incredibly but today it’s all about the exercise.
The results won’t come if action isn’t taken so that’s what I’ve been doing. In any form I can. My favourite way to get exercise in is by going to the gym (as I’ve said before) but I know there are a lot of anti-gym goers out there. I used to be one of them. I don’t think I was so much anti-gym as I was scared to go to the gym for fear of being judged. It got to the point where my inner thoughts were so ridiculous I just had to tell them to shut up. In order to make myself feel better and less self conscious I had this awesome conversation in my head. Please tell me I’m not the only one that does such things…
The pep talk went something like this:
“No-one cares Chavah. They’re not looking at you. They’re all here for the same reason and everyone’s just as self conscious as you…that’s why they’re working out!”
It worked like a charm. I have never felt self conscious about using a gym again.
When I took all the gym bunnies off a pedestal and brought them down to my ever-so-self-conscious level, it made the gym a bearable place to be. People began smiling at me, I learned the ropes and now because I’m fat again, I’m discovering that nothings changed, people are still only conscious of themselves when they’re working out and yes, I can indeed still rock a workout. I just get tired more easily. Make that way more easily but hey, we’re only on day 4.
I’ve been walking, going to the gym, I’ve worked out at home and gone swimming. So long as I’m getting something in, I’m happy.
My body is hurting everywhere today. I’d rather have it hurt than feel nothing though. Things are really clicking in my head and I proved that to myself today when I encountered 4pm Sunday evening… my exhaustion peak. It would have been so easy to say “Oh I’ve been good, I can have a treat and not cook” but I didn’t. My body had a major sugar craving too but I pushed past. I would have felt like crap if I’d given in to the request to get some junk that came from all family members. (Great bunch huh lol) I’m glad I’m doing this.
