Gym nerves!

Thanks to my very generous Mum and Dad, I finally gained the funds to buy that gym membership that’s been on my mind for ages. I have booked my induction in for tomorrow. I’m so excited, I can’t wait to start feeling good and boost my weightloss, but I’m somewhat aprehensive!

Ok, I might be overweight but I don’t weigh 30 stone, so I’m not worried about that.

I haven’t been running for a while, but I’m not unfit. The thought of exercise doesn’t make my skin crawl, it actually quite excites me. So that’s fine too.

I’m just scared because I don’t know what I’m doing!

I haven’t been a member of the gym before, I normally just go out running on the farm roads at home or at the beach. I like being alone! There are no intimidating muscle men watching and waiting behind you for your machine. No massive mirrors show you how gross and hideous you look compared to the gym buffs around you. There aren’t hundreds of knobs and buttons that you have to press before you even get started. You can just run.

I’m having my induction tomorrow, I’m just praying that I’ll remember everything I’m shown. I don’t want to be that annoying new person at the gym that doesn’t know what they’re doing, but I guess everyone has to start somewhere. I’m just so excited to start shedding the pounds!
