Lazy and disappointed

Sunday, August 09, 2020

Its been 4 years since i've touched this site, and here I am 4 years later bigger and inactive. I took an office job which requires that I sit for 8 hours a day and look at a computer screen. after working like this for three years my bottom got used to sitting for hours and hours at a time that it became something I was good at so i sat on my bottom after work as well, doing as little as possible. I've always said I couldn't exercise on my own and that I didn't have any motivation and had to have someone to exercise with. Finally a bell rung in my husbands ear after 8 years of marriage and me constantly telling him I couldn't do this on my own, he heard the same thing from someone else that I've been telling him for years. His boss feels the same way I do and feels like she can't workout alone either. so they both got a gym membership, well after my husband had been going for three weeks he decided to have me added to his membership and now I have gone three days in a row, i am actually excited to be going. I thought going to the gym would intimidate me and i didn't wanna look like an idiot in front of these skinny/buff people. But I have found no judgments from anyone, no stares, just people working out to become healthier or to stay healthy. I can see myself going for a while. Even though I'm still technically working out alone, My husband is still there doing it to and there are others who are exercising around me to.

    It is great news that you both have joined the gym. I have belonged to the gym for years. One thing I know, is that everyone is so busy working out that they don't have time to harass or even notice members that are out of shape. Also, most of us are working out because WE are not in the best shape either. It can be a constant battle for me. emoticon

    I’m glad you found out that gym people are almost always pretty nice. They’re either self absorbed in what they are doing and/or very helpful and friendly because...they’ve been where you are.

    Nobody is born knowing everything to do in a gym.

    Keep up the good work!
