I still hate exercising

not mine…

I really seriously do. I find nothing fun about it but, after eating all the zeppoli and pizza last night I opted to actually drag myself out of the bed this morning and go to the gym in my building.

It’s an infinity mirror…. its not that big.

And it is actually really nice. And its just downstairs and very open and available at all times and I’m paying for it in my amenities fees… There is absolutely no point in not taking advantage of it. That of course, doesn’t mean I like it.

So this morning, unlike the rest of the week where I woke up at 6 and after spending five minutes trying to convince myself to get out of bed and go to the gym before rolling back over and waiting till my next alarm, I actually got out of bed.

God only knows where I got the strength to do that, but I did it. I got dressed and I still went! Even after I couldn’t find my headphones so that I could listen to music or the TV.

I exercised in silence. Who’s proud of me? I sure as shit am. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical even after at 25 minutes I was like “NOPE NO MORE. I AM DONE” I kept going and finished the 45 minutes that I had put in to do.

Despite all my hopes and desires it was not empty when I got there, there were two other girls in there and about 5 minutes before I left a guy came in to do his thing.

I felt woefully inadequate doing my thing on the elliptical, but better for actually having been there.

All that said, exercise still does not make me happy. But it does make the little green lights on my ActiveLink light up getting me damn close to 100% for the day before 7 a.m. and THAT makes me happy. I reached 1 WW activity point before Noon. So I will take that and run with it.

Though not literally, I hate running.

  1. Congratulations! 45 minutes on the elliptical is FANTASTIC. I have an elliptical that my folks gave to me (it’s pretty old, but it does the job), and I don’t think I could do 45 minutes to save my life. After 20 minutes I feel like crying… I’d probably collapse if I tried to do 45 right now!

    I also want to applaud you for actually GOING to a gym. I am too self-conscious to do that. One day I’d like to be able to go, but that day hasn’t arrived yet. Maybe once I lose a little more weight on my own I will gain the confidence to physically go and workout with/in front of other people.

    But, I am proud of you for taking the plunge! Keep up the good work! 🙂

    • Thank you!! Its been ridiculous but I did it again today and yeah, I still hate it. Ellipticals are not fun but they get the job done.

      And the fact that the gym in my building is nearly always empty makes it easier to go, no one is there to look at me! I have faith that we will all get to our goal! So good for you too!!

  2. I’m hearing you! I am not a fan of exercise either, because it means bad things to me – being hot and sweaty (inevitable in sub-tropical Australia), being sore and uncomfortable, feeling all my bits of skin and fat wobbling all around the place – YUCK. So when I decide to go before I NEED to work out for both my both and my mind, it does give me a sense of achievement. You’ve done so well to get up to 45 minutes on the elliptical! 🙂
