Fitness is like a relationship. You can’t cheat and expect it to work
Apparently it takes about 3 weeks to create a habit, but at least 3 months to change your lifestyle. Well, I just entered a gym for 6 months. Think I’m covered? I chose the last gym I visited. The fact that it’s so close that I won’t have any excuse not to visit it every day and even on off days they have a swimming pool to enjoy. So I’m going for 5 days of training and 2 days of relaxation in the gym.
Today was the first day. I went in, started with a 10 minute cardio session and then went on to the machines. Although I didn’t follow the exercises out of the book I read, I did keep to the muscle groups that were in the schedule. So today was arms and calves. I added the lower back myself, as that has always been an issue for me.
It felt good being at the gym. Still a bit too self-conscious, looking at people and wondering if I look silly. But my conclusion was that nobody really cares what other people are doing. I still feel funny being in the diehards room, but on my first day I took two devices that were in there. My goal is to do the exercises from “Thinner, Leaner, Stronger” as of next week.
One day in the pocket!
