Can you exercise alone?

I made a realisation this week at the gym. While I’m happy to go everyday I am willing to go if someone goes with me, luckily I have awesome and supportive friends who go with me but at the same time I think it’s kinda sad.

Like the gym is a place anyone should feel comfortable to go to, we’re all there for roughly the same reason, we want to look and feel healthier.  But when I looked around one super busy evening, I was surrounded by people running, lifting weights, working on the machines for long periods of time and I just felt like a big blob on a treadmill walking like an unfit hippo….which I am might I add.

I always feel encouraged when I’m with someone I know, cause if I see them going then I wanna keep going. And when I’m with my trainer I wanna push harder and get through her challenges…but when I’ by myself I wanna be invisible. So what I want to know is how do people get over that?  How does someone just decide “yeap I’m going to the gym by myself”.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated 😀

Health and Fitness

So it’s been a while (I’m writing like someone is actually going to read this) I’ve been going to the gym for the last few weeks..and boooy am I hooked ! I have one personal trainer session a week and that’s actually a lot of fun, then one “intense” session with a work frien..only cause it’s followed by Korean BBQ lol and then every other day I walk on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes.

So far it feels amazing, I can feel changes in my body in terms of small weight loss and my fitness it getting better. They’re not super amazing changes but they’re good changes nonetheless.  I never really thought I’d be excited to work out and be as consistent as I am but it’s going well.

I’ll be honest I haven’t worked out by myself yet…I’m kinda scared of everyone else watching me.  I know they probably don’t care but I feel like the fattest person there but I’m working on it. Building my confidence bit by bit.

With that being said I’m going to be posting more about fitness and health.  Time to finally get this summer bod I’ve been wanting for the last few years.
