I love my gym

Today I was pretty grumpy when I got to the gym. Besides me being grouchy, it was hot, HOT outside and I was already sweating, never mind that I took the bus there.

Today was C210K Week 4 Day 3 and since I don’t like running, I was dreading it (I always dread it. I love it when I’m done, but getting to it is always kind of a bummer). And it was Legs&Back day which is never my favorite.

While I was putting my stuff in my locker, my favorite spin teacher (and superstar trainer that I will hire once I win the lotto) stopped to tell me that she noticed how hard I was working earlier this week and that I was doing a great job.


So encouraging! Her words made me pop on the treadmill in a happy mood (ran at 6.0 for all portions), and I really pushed myself on my P90X routine today. I reached for the heavier weights. I moved the pin up on the assisted pull-up machine. I really brought it.


Just another reason why I love my gym. I know a woman whose gym puts posters in the women’s locker room with slogans: “Your Bones Aren’t THAT Big” “Be the Skinny Friend Everyone Hates”. Can you imagine having to see that?! None of that at my gym – the emphasis is on health and having fun while exercising. I just love to be there.
Even when I’m grumpy from the 100-degree weather.



  1. I am going to borrow that – I am currently off work again but day before yesterday was on the treadmill for .25 miles. Yes, you read that correctly. But I did it. And was able to walk through a couple of stores for probably a bit more than .25 miles. Working on my PT exercises & will be back on the treadmill again today and I WILL BRING IT!!

  2. I agree! The gym locker room is not the place for those posters! Excercise should be healthy and fun, glad you had a good time a the the gym and are killing it in your mileage and P90x!

  3. That is disgusting! I would never go to a gym like your friend’s – obviously run by some skinny snob with no idea about real health and motivation. Gross! I’m glad you have such a great gym and what a great workout! Awesome job!


  1. […] thing to have. If you don’t have a lot of time for the gym, or you feel like your time at the gym isn’t doing enough, there are lots of ways you can tone your stomach at home. You can even do […]

I'd love to hear from you
