I love the gym
I really do love going to the gym but there is one thing that keeps me from the gym. ItÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s the fact that I work 40 hours a week and travel 10 hours a week.
I could leave early in the morning but the last few times IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ve done that the traffic was so bad I only had 20 minutes to workout by the time I got there. Besides when itÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s cold like this itÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s a lot harder to drag yourself out of bed. Also itÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s pitch black for most of my drive to work.
I used to workout after work but getting home after 7 instead of about 6 makes for a very short night and a very hungry girl. Also by the time my workday is over all I want to do is slip into some pjs and spend some time with my boyfriend. All in all my energy is gone for that day.
I also tried working out during my lunch but my lunchtime is when I like to catch up on some blogging and get other things done. Also I only get an hour for lunch, which equals about 30 minutes of a workout since I have to change into workout clothes and then take a shower afterward.
So I decided it might make more sense to use the small gym near my house since I could utilize that on the weekends possibly even while IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢m doing my laundry. I could also probably find a little more motivation to go there on the weekday knowing that IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢m nice and close to home.
For now IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢m doing the right thing and getting up early to hit the gym before work, I did today and I feel fantastic. IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢m going to keep pushing myself to get to the gym in the early morning while I still have this membership. I really feel getting regular workouts three or more times a week is the best thing you can do for your emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
