Getting back on track

Monday, September 21, 2009

I've always been into health and fitness. When I first joined the gym 10 years ago I would go everyday and my workout was very intensive. I had a great figure because of that and I was at the peak of my fitness. I just loved the gym and I knew just about everyone simply because I was there all the time. You could say I lived for the gym as I would be standing in the queue waiting for the doors to open at 5.30am.
Five years ago I relocated from my home in South Africa to England. I found it to be quite a big adjustment. I immediately enrolled in the local gym. However, my attendance is very poor. There would be a week when I will do absolutely no exercise and then the next week I may go on just one day. I find all sorts of excuses not to go. I love the gym but I find I'm having to force myself to go. It has become more of a chore now than anything else. Having not made any friends at the gym also doesn't make it any easier. Please somebody help.

    Welcome to SP! COngratulations on your first post! I know what you mean about poor attendance to the gym....I am the same way these days! All I can say is find something you like, mix it up so you do not get bored and if possible hire a personal trainer. Even if for a few sessions. That way you will have to show up at the gym...NO excuses. You will have someone waiting on you there. This is what I am planning on doing. I am just waiting on the call back.

    YOu can do this! Do not give up! You are worth it! emoticon
