I’ve never been the type to go to the gym and I didn’t like working out.
It was just so boring.
But after I turned 30, I started putting on a lot of weight. My eating habits didn’t change, but my body sure did. That’s when I finally started working out in an attempt to get my figure back. At first, I had to force myself to go to the gym. But now, almost a year later, I actually enjoy it. I’ve actually gained weight. But it’s muscle weight. I’ve gone down three pant sizes and I’ve never felt better. The gym I go to has a lot of fun things to do like yoga and kickboxing. I don’t get bored. The only thing I don’t like is that the gym has started turning their heater on when it’s cold outside. I wouldn’t mind a little bit of heat but it’s too hot and humid to exercise now. They must have the thermostat set up to about 80°. I like that the air conditioner was blasting away in the summer because it kept me nice and cool, no matter how hard I worked out. But now that the heater is on all the time, I feel like I’m overheating and can barely catch my breath as soon as I walk through the door. I don’t feel a lot of motivation to work out when I already feel like that before I have even started. I’ve noticed that a lot less people are attending the gym too. It’s always empty when I show up. I might have to find another gym. I want to keep working out but I also don’t want to die of heat exhaustion.
