The Readers’ Workouts meme is hosted at Joy’s Book Blog. This is a place to share exercise successes and challenges.
I’ve been keeping up with my gym attendance and have worked out four times since last Tuesday. It would have been five except we had a snowstorm Thursday and my normal 25 minute commute home took 75 and I wasn’t really in the mood to get my gear and drive out again (Winter is my favorite season, but I am not a fan of driving in winter).
I don’t know that it will ever be easy for me to go to the gym, but slowly but surely I am making it a routine. In my mind I whine about it (“Awww, but I don’t wanna go”) but grown-up me prevails and I do what I’m supposed to do. And the funny part is 99% of the time I feel so much better for going, while when I decide to skip out on exercise I feel rotten – physically and emotionally.
