Three months ago, I joined a gym. Three months ago, I went to the gym. Three days ago, I went again.
Here are some reasons I didn’t go in between:
- Too tired after work
- My lower back hasn’t been strong enough
- I wasn’t wearing the right socks
- I didn’t have a padlock for the lockers
- I couldn’t find parking
- Have to do something more pressing, so don’t have time
- I just ate cake
- Dana (my cat) needs me
All terrible excuses. I know this. I knew this at the time of each excuse.
But, I went again. And my husband persuaded me to go on some walking tracks with him in the National park (I have to get fit so we can climb a mountain in Tasmania in October).
Three weeks ago, the weather was miserable, which made me miserable, and for the first couple of kilometres all I could think about was how cold it was. But I ended up enjoying it and being happy that I struggled less than I thought I would.
Today the weather was lovely, and the walk was a much easier one.
