New Year - New Actions
Thursday, January 04, 2018
New actions meaning activities! I got a super good deal through my insurance company to join a gym network and I only had to commit to three months! I can tell you right now I am not a fan of any indoor exercise. However, I thought that this was too good to pass-up. I can go to quite a few different gyms in my area and other places as well.
The weather has been pretty brutal lately here in PA and I have severe asthma, the two don't mix well. I thought maybe, just maybe I should try something different and be kind to myself. I am looking at this as a wonderful gift that I can either embrace or hate, today I choose to embrace.
I gathered my clothes and I plan on going to the gym right after work today. I am not sure what exactly I will need or want to wear or take with me, but I am starting today and will just suck it up and deal with whatever. Trial and error. Maybe I got this today and maybe I don't, but I am going either way and I am exercising either way. I will learn from it as the days go by and soon I will know exactly what I need to carry with me. (Besides the inhaler)
Anyway, I am putting this in writing more for myself to be accountable today. I will report on my experience later. But first I have to get a flat tire taken care of. Ugh. At least the flat happened while I was in a safe and warm place.
Always trying to look at the bright side.
Edited to add Gym Report - I did it! I spent a little over an hour and used the treadmill, rowing machine, elliptical and bike. I didn't want to do too much of any specific machine, I'm trying them to see what I like the best and how I feel using them. I had a nice view of the sunset while rowing and biking as a reward! I might be able to live with this. It helps that the weather is just brutally cold and windy. Yes! I will be happy with the gym today.
