Gym – Day 2

So yep, I joined a gym! I’ve been meaning to for years but my excuses list was ridicules.

– I had no time – now I do (maternity leave)

– I can’t afford it – no travel costs for a bit

– Big muscle bound men would intimidate me – a ladies only gym opened 5 minutes down the road

So no more excuses!!

I used to go, maybe 17 years ago and, in my memory, I liked it but still, it’s scary. I’ve always considered exercise to be a pretty good anti-depressant and more time means more opportunity for irrational thinking so something had to be done. I need to add that I have a very supportive boyfriend and a very chilled baby – not everyone is this lucky. I count my first visit as a write off cos scared shitless but the 2nd, I think this might work.

Will I ever be a gym bunny? Nah, more like the scary bunny from Donnie Darko but hey, at least I’m trying 🙂 Baby steps!

Peace and Love
