The Time Commitment
On Thursdays and Fridays, I work 4am-noon, usually off of 1-4 hours of sleep. The last thing I want to do is workout. I go home, I talk to my deployed bf, and I pass out. I try to sleep for only two hours. About five hours later, I wake up.
There's also the numerous times where I've been late to things because I was at the gym. For some reason, I spend a lot of time there. I usually give myself a three hour window for an hour long work out. I think that's largely due to stretching, showering, and taking a break after cardio. But seriously? Where is all my time going?
I try to make sure that I make it to the gym four times a week, but there are sometimes when I have SO much going on that I can't and I feel bad.
I am so sore right now..... I feel OLD. SO OLD. Don't get me wrong, I know that it means progress and that I'm doing good and it's not painful to the point of I've hurt myself. But I would give a lot for a back/shoulder massage right now. Or underarm/chest massage (as awkward as that sounds). My shoulders are tense and I just want to go in a hot tub full of masseurs.
I'm all about loving your body, but no one wants to see your white wife beater tank top completely soaked with sweat and clinging to your body. Please- wear a t-shirt. I just died a little on the inside.
Also, must you groan and grunt when working out? You sound like you're taking a dump or having sex (I can't quite tell) and it's distracting. A little is fine, but I shouldn't be able to hear you over the music and my own thoughts.
NEVER forget to clean your equipment. I saw a guy leave sweat drops all over a stair climber.
Furthermore, NEVER go around 5:30-6pm. It is a bad idea because it is very full. Everyone just got off work and is a robot. They do not need rest, they only need gym.
I really do like going to gym, but sometimes it makes me crazy!
