So I'm basically a gym rat now lmao.
I surprise myself all the time smh. I've never been into going to the gym, I just think it can be distracting and also my ocd when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness... thinking of all the germs on those machines right now is making me shudder. But I don't want that to be my excuse for not working out anymore. Plus, I actually like my local gym. It's walking distance and it's never busy when I tend to go really early in the morning. Now, I'm no gym expert, in fact I want to get a personal trainer soon but it definitely helps knowing what each machine is for and how it can aid in toning and sculpting the body. I'm a treadmill kind of girl, I can be on that thing for ages and it helps when you have a fire playlist! I also use the rowing machine, arc trainer /elliptical and the stationary bike. So I'll do about 10/15 mins on each and then if I'm in the mood, I'll go to the sauna and/or steam room and then have a swim- although I don't know why, I really don't like swimming once the temperature starts to drop. I'm always cold and water only intensifies that so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it. I don't necessarily have a goal that I'm trying to achieve just yet, I just know I want to be more active and healthy and it's also a helpful distraction. Definitely keeps me out of my sometimes negative thoughts and instead focusing on something that will benefit me overall. I've also started meditating (seriously this time) and I wish I had been taking it seriously sooner. It has been keeping me focused and motivated on what's important right now. Omg and I've been eating so much but so much healthier as well, sleeping more and being more intentional about having a cleaner mind, body and soul overall.
