Does anyone else get Gym Rage? Did I tell you I hate the gym? I always get internal gym rage working-out.. What happened to “feel-good hormones”? I want some of those!!
I get mad before, I get enraged at the gym and when I get home… I’m tired, I’m hungry and I’m moody as fuck.
I have had a love hate relationship with the gym for as long as I can remember…
I am your typical I pay as I don’t go yo-yo gym visitor.
Something happens after those first few visits, and before long, my pure intentions have turned to excuses.
Could you imagine if we had a savings account with all the membership dues, all the exercise equipment we purchased, all the diet pills, diet books, meal programs and trainers we paid?
I usually plan one day during the week that next Monday I am going to start my diet and exercise plan. Monday comes and goes and two weeks later I am telling myself the same thing. The following Monday comes I go to the gym I start off slow, say I will push myself harder tomorrow. Every New Year, I tell myself this year is my year and I’m going to get out of this rat race and focus on changing my life.
Yesterday, I drove home from work with my gym bag packed and sitting beside me shotgun and I seriously argued with myself the entire ride saying “I’m not going to the gym.. I’m too tired, I’m just going to go home.” As I came up to the light before I make my turn, the battle continued. It wasn’t till I parked the car and walked in the door that I realized how much I was fighting myself.
My entire time at the gym I am bitching to myself how much I hate it and want to scream it the lady next to me. Upon leaving I smiled and felt great about my decision to go.
It’s not long before I am back to my old ways…
Including making a pit stop at Dunkin Donuts drive thru to grab a Medium Iced Latte on my way home to help me cope with my anger of hate that raged on.
