So I feel like I am at a crossroads when it comes to my fitness. Not my diet – that is still going well. As a matter of fact I just took a few days off for my birthday and I did a lot of cooking. I now have beef stew, pork chili, and meatloaf sitting in my refrigerator, waiting to be used for my lunches. I even made some mashed cauliflower tonight to go along with the meatloaf and it was very good.
No, I’m talking about my workouts, which have become non-existent the past few weeks. Either I am just totally losing my drive to go to the gym, or I’m bored with it. I’m not sure which is the case right now, but I’m trying to look into other options as far as workouts go. I’m thinking about Crossfit, although it makes me kind of nervous. I have heard of a lot of people getting hurt doing Crossfit, but I know that a lot of Paleo folks swear by it. And…that’s all I’m really thinking about because I’m not sure what else is out there that I would be interested in, either.
See, the last time I went to the gym it was packed. Ridiculously packed. I would be waiting or fighting over a machine packed. And I have been scared to go ever since, because one of the things that I love about my workout is that it doesn’t take me forever to do it. Waiting for a machine would cost me time and frustrate me to no end. As a matter of fact, I left last time without finishing my workout because I didn’t want to wait on the leg press machine.
I know that it won’t be like that forever, but the thought of trying something new excites me. I’m not sure where to go with my fitness goals next, but I do know that I need to do something. I was enjoying the feeling that working out gave me, and the body that I was gaining from it.
