Life, Love and the Pursuit of Skinniness

Last night I started looking at gyms in the area, thinking if I have somewhere to go workout that isn’t crazy out of the way I might go…yeah…might.  Not.  Could.  Should.  But probably won’t.  I HATE working out.  Did I mention HATE?  I don’t know why it is exactly, it’s not like I have something so much better to do with my time, I mean, I watch specific TV shows each week…I don’t need to sit down and watch them every night as a guarantee.

I wonder if I decided that after I had dinner and fed the dogs (7:00) that I could go to the gym for an hour a night, round trip.  So, 15 minutes of driving and 45 minutes of working out.  It seems plausible.  Do this three nights a week and I’m only adding 135 minutes of shows to my DVR really.  The other 4 days of the week I could just watch shows like normal.  It all sounds easy, great and plausible, but some how I just really don’t see it happening, which sucks because I think I’m really going to need to tone up in order to keep getting smaller, rather than just lighter.

After a long day of work though, working out just seems like the last thing I want to do, and I can’t do it on the way home from work because my poor dogs have been kenneled since 8:15AM and I don’t get home until 5:45 as it is.  I don’t want to make it 6:45, that’s 10.5 hours they’re kenneled at a time!

So, how do I get around my hee’in and haw’in about this.  Not sure yet, but at least I’m putting it out there, the “Should Do It” and now the world can see it (or at least the people who visit my blog 😉 ).

That’s all for now folks, checkin’ in later after I try out my roast beef for dinner tonight.

  1. Get up super early before you go to work for your workout at the gym??? That’s what I did when I was working and I found it peaceful and ME time if that makes sense. It was hard getting up early but I felt good after my workout so that’s what kept me going. ((-; Helpful hint – then you still get the evenings with your family.

    • The trick is that my husband and I work together, and we carpool. Because of that it’s not practical to leave early or come home late unless we want to drive back home prior to going to work so we can let the dogs out 😦

  2. Make a goal to do it for one month. You have a good plan. Then see how you feel after the first month. I bet you will feel so good, that you will want to continue! You can do it!

  3. It’s so funny, I’m exactly the opposite–I can totally work out like a mofo but hate the “eating right” part. I was logging four hours of cardio a week before IP and happy to do it, but RESENTED the fact that I couldn’t eat whatever I wanted and lose weight. So now it’s so much funner getting to eat more protein and work out WAAAY less, just doing sculpting stuff like you said, so that as the fat goes down and muscles come up, I’ll have some definition.

    But my solution around having to go to a gym was at-home videos and toys. —> — their selection is AMAZING. Plus which I’m crazy picky about my workout space–I like it to be like 400 degrees, no fans or air conditioner blowing (which makes me laugh–God forbid people should go to a gym and SWEAT!!!), and when I shower afterwards, if I feel like putting on my jammies, I can. 🙂
