Earlier in July, I joined a new gym. It had been some time since I went to a gym, and indeed I had cancelled my last gym membership due to not attending in months. I researched some of my local options, and I settled on a non-chain gym to join.
My first workout was July 5th. The gym has 24-hour access for members, and I wanted to blow off some steam, so I went out to run on the elliptical and do some light weight lifting.
All in all, I like the gym so far. The layout is different than what I’m used to, but I like the aesthetic and vibe. You have a decent mix of people using it, from muscle-heads to grandmas, and everyone seems welcome.
However, since July 5th I have not been back to the gym. Despite wanting to get back into the routine of exercising, I have yet to make any progress towards forming a new habit of going to the gym.
Granted, things have been hectic as we dealt with the fallout from the move, the renovations, wedding planning, etc. Still, this is not a good excuse and I should be doing better.
I figured this accountability post would be a good thing to share, because it’s going to take some work before I change my behaviour.
