I Get By with a Little Help From My Friends
Thursday, October 15, 2009
September was a disaster, work out wise. I think I might have made it to the gym once, even after posting a blog on here about how I was going to make an effort. October, however, has been another story. Since the 2nd, I have been to the gym 12 times. You see, I got a friend to join my gym. And that gives me the motivation I need. There are been mornings when I don't want to go (like this morning) but knowing that my friend will be there makes all the difference in the world. And people have noticed a difference in my mood. I've notice a difference in how often I get headaches. (Not as frequently. One a week verses 3 or 4 a week.) I've noticed my emotions evening out. We know that exercise is so good for us, but it is so eaasy to make excuses.
Two very strange things about this. Number one, I am a night owl. Getting to bed before midnight takes a real effort for me. Yet, I am going to the gym early in the morning because that is the time we can do it together. Number two, I am a bit of a loner, in other aspects of my life. I'm pretty independent. I don't feel like I need to have a friend to go to the movies, out to eat or anything. But the bottom line is when I relied on myself to get to the gym, I didn't go. Just two aspects about this I feel are interesting.
Okay, I've rambled on enough. I need to get to work. I promise my next blog post will be more coherent. (I've been thinking on it for about three weeks.)
