I’ve spoken about going to the gym on this blog before and now with the new year I’ve started going again. I started at the end of February, 26th to be precise, and have gone six times so far.
All the excuses I may once have made have now evaporated as I’m now only a twenty minute walk from the gym as opposed to a thirty minute train ride as I was before.
I think that the gym is something I don’t like exactly but it is something I feel to be necessary. I’ve never been that happy with how I look and maybe this will help me to feel more confident in myself. I think that is working to some extent. I also need to cut out junk food. I used to have cola quite a bit, drinks are free at work, but I’m trying to drink mostly water. I drink tea too, I’m British after all, and juice as well.
It is always said of the gym that most people, including me in the past, go for a little while then get board and then quit. Well that’s not going to happen this time. I have a cunning plan. I have paid for the gym a year in advance so I can’t quit. It is already done and paid for so now I have to use it!
At least that is the plan.
Perhaps I’ll end up saying ‘fuck it’ and cut my losses. Who can say? Saying I would know. Do not know so cannot say. Does anyone but me know where that comes from? Gold star if you do.
This has nothing to do with anything but I have my robot vacuum cleaner running as I write this. I can set it to auto clean but it gets stuck easily and I have visions of it knocking everything over if I leave it to its own devices.
Anyway where was I?
I do feel that this time it is going to work and I am going to stick with the gym. As touched on earlier I do need to cut down on junk food too. That is the real challenge. I mean just looking at this picture here makes me salivate like I’m Homer Simpson – complete with drooling noise. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if hummus and carrots was just as appetizing? I guess maybe if you’re vegan they are.
I’m sure someone a lot smarter than me could explain why we like bad food so much more than healthy food.
Although, now that I think about, I do sort of crave healthy food a bit. If I have been eating badly for a few days I do tend to want to stay away from fried food and have something more like this: So maybe there is hope for me after all.
Though right now I want a burger.
Yes. After first writing this, it’s a few days later now, I did get a burger. It was nice. Cue Homer Simpson drooling.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
