So I’m three days into exercising again and I wish I had never stopped. It’s not that I love the gym that much but rather how much it sucks to get your body use to exercise. I felt so good while actually in the gym and exercising but now I’m hurting. My muscles are hating me right now. I know the first week is the worst so at least it won’t get any harder from here on out.
On the plus side I’ve been able to convince my roommate/friend to start coming to the gym with me. He’s been talking about how he wants to be healthier and get in shape but I’m not sure he’s really committed to it. I’m going to make him stick with it though, no matter how much he complains about his muscles hurting. I just have to get him to stop buying chips now. He’ll thank me later just like I will thank myself for sticking with my exercise and healthy eating.
Being healthy is a lifestyle choice that I’ve made before and loved but it’s so easy to fall into bad habits like I did recently. Those habits made me sleep terribly and feel gross which is why I’m getting back on track. I also forgot how much I enjoy writing this blog, even if only a few people read it. This is more for me then is it for anyone else but if it helps someone else feel motivated to be healthier themself, then I’m happy that I helped. As long as I remember that fitness is a long-term thing that takes time to see results, I’ll be ok. I just have to be patient and stick with it and I know I’ll succeed.
