I’m my own motivation.

Being competitive with yourself, and secretly with other people next to you while either on the stationary bike or any other machine, is killer. Much better than taking any sort of fat burner pills in lieu of sweating it out manually, if I can word it that way. At the gym, we even have a Women’s Only section that’s off on it’s own corner right in it’s own room inside the women’s change room. You don’t have to be bothered by guys with no necks or other meat heads.

I love the subconscious guilt that comes with it too. Because, it’s so hard to walk past the gym every day after I’m done work and decide to not go. Definitely a bit of guilt kicks in and of course after it’s out of sight, it’s definitely out of mind ha ha! What can I say I don’t exactly love the gym. But I conveniently have a gym right in my building at work. In fact,  tomorrow I have my fitness assessment. I’m kind of bothered to find out the results of it. I’m an average sized person but last time I had my body fat percentage taken I was a few points higher than I wanted to be. Grueling months at the gym lowered it, but not by much — I only lost inches. Which, I mean is great but I wanted to be in the healthier body fat % range.

Can’t complain I guess! Maybe if that number changes for my second F.A. 3 months from now, I’ll tell you all about it. But for now, it’ll be my little secret.

  1. Do you have any tips for getting motivated? I have been trying so hard since January 1st to get my butt in gear and start going to the gym or working out at home and have not started any kind of routine yet.

    1. Honestly the motivation just came to me after me feeling like an absolute slob for so long. My figure wasn’t the same as it used to be, and that was enough to make me do something about it. Mind you, I’ve only been going to the gym for about a month now. I just hope I can keep up the self-motivation.

  2. Hey – a month is better than what I have done! I have no time after work, so I set the alarm early every morning but always end up hitting snooze. I really want to tone up and just get in shape so I feel better (I just quit smoking), but I just can’t get myself to the gym! I will have to just keep reading your posts about working out and hope that it motivates me!
