Like a very huge, multinational sports company once said, “Just Do it”, so I did.
If you read my previous blog post, the thought of going to the gym to work out just gave me so much anxiety and stress. However, working out and moving my body has been a real goal of mine’s for ages now. Unfortunately, I was too scared to go alone and none of my friends really wanted to go with me so I just left it off and off. In my defense, since my younger brother got his license, “my” car has turned into “our” car. UGH.
But anyways, my dear old friend, Roziny agreed to go to the gym with me two days ago. Like expected, it was scary and intimidating. I did not know what any machines were nor how they were operated but you know what? I went. I did it.
Because I live in New England warm weather isn’t a constant. Maybe I’ll enjoy the gym more in the coming months when there’s snow on the ground but at the moment, I feel like I should be outside enjoying the sun while it’s still here. Plus, this is the first week all summer where it’s actually been consistently hot. How crazy, right? July’s almost over.
As a result, Roziny, Thomas (my youngest brother), and I went on a walk at the beach with Roziny’s two dogs, Teddy and Mason. The beach is one of my favorite places ever and I used to go walking everyday for a few months last year. Lets be real though, the thought of going to the gym again didn’t seem too appealing. Plus, my legs were soooo sore. With not knowing what to do at the gym, I just did a little bit of everything, which probably wasn’t the most affective.
The point of this post is to not show how pretty my running shoes are (but really it is) because Khloe Kardashian has the same pair and when I put them on I feel just as fabulous, obviously…but I just want everyone out there nervous about working out to know that yes it is hard but it’s so worth it.
I’m just a regular girl with insecurities that’s trying to work at them. I don’t know if I’ll ever get to the point of a regular exercise routine or be a gym junkie but you know what, that’s okay. My goal is to be healthy but my ultimate goal is to learn to love myself with a food baby and all.
This post is starting to become wayyy too deep so I’m going to stop myself here.
