Enjoying The Gym

So far joining LA Fitness has been a great improvement on my workouts and my motivation.  I'm guessing it has something to do with the whole spending money for the membership, but if it's getting me to work out more, then I'm good with it.

I will admit that I'm not the best at going to the spinning class.  I found a teacher I like, but she only teaches at my gym twice a week so its hard to make her specific classes.  I really should get outside my comfort zone and try another instructor, but I like my routines.

Still, I've been hitting the gym 2-3 times a week and I've been running on the elliptical or using a stationary bike.  I have to say, getting an hour in on the elliptical is a lot easier when I have a tv that's working.  I will get through an entire 40-60 minute workout done without the tv, but it is honestly a lot harder without the distraction.  Plus, I enjoy my morning A&E crime dramas and catch up with Sports Center.  Plus, as long as I get a good, decent workout in, I'm happy!

The best case was just the other day.  I got to the gym right before a storm rolled in.  I unfortunately found an elliptical without a working tv, but the rain started pouring and lightening rolled in about 40 minutes into my workout.  So instead of calling it quits (which my lack luster brain wanted me to do), I ran out the storm on my machine.

While I'm not quite there yet, I am getting better at getting up, starting, and getting through my workouts.
