A few days ago, I showed you what was on my phone’s camera roll. Today, I’ll let you in on what I’m thinking about my workout experiences.
I returned to my gym yesterday. I haven’t been there in a while and it shows in more ways than one. I’ve lost some of my fitness and strength so it’s not a surprise that I can’t do some of the things I was doing a few months ago when I was going to the gym and/or running almost everyday. No surprise there. If you don’t do the work, you won’t get the benefit. Now that I’ve decided to get back to it, I have a lot of work to put in.
But what was a surprise is how much my gym itself has changed. Now there’s a vending machine where you can indulge your M&Ms cravings or buy energy shots.
There’s also a machine in the locker room where you can get aspirin or head bands or tampons. (Here’s a peek in the girls room, guys)
Convenient and a little pricey. But I don’t know how I feel about it all overall. I have enough of a challenge crossing the street to walk on the other side to avoid buying candy in the corner stores. But when I’m on the treadmill feeling like I’m dying, I don’t know if I’m strong enough to avoid swiping my card for peanut M&Ms – my favorite. I mean, I could avoid almost anything else. Candy in the gym, what’s next? Free pizza? Oh wait, they already do that!
