I never thought I would do it but I took a big step the other day and I am so proud of myself for finally doing it!
So what did I do you may ask?
I bought a gym membership!
The reason I say that this is such a big step for me is because I have talked about it for some time now but always decided against it because I would tell myself that I didn’t need to go to a gym I couldn’t work out at home with what I had.
But the truth of the matter was I wasn’t working out at home. I would find excuses not to work out. I would tell myself I would start another day. I would wake up late and start again on a different day. There was just excuse after excuse!
You may ask why I finally dove in head first and why I finally too the big step to get a gym membership? Well I was calling on life insurance for my husband and I just to get a quote and it really hit me hard when the estimated cost for mine was $20 more than my husbands because of my weight and how I am considered unhealthy.
It finally all just sank in in that moment and I thought to myself I can’t wait any more, I can’t put this off, I can’t keep lying to myself. Now is as good a time as any to get this started and working toward my goals!
And now all I need to do is wait for the access pass to come in and then starting the beginning of September I am going to start taking it seriously and heading to the gym in the mornings! The nice thing about this is I have a co worker who is wanting to make some serious changes as well and is going to be doing it right along side me and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the support system from and for her as well!
Wish us luck as we start on this new journey and work to get into better shape for ourselves! I don’t know that I will feel comfortable enough yet to post before pictures but I know I will one day, I just need time!
Here goes nothing!
Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
