So I have been trying to be more active lately and some aspects are going well and others are definitely not. I’m trying really hard to come up with things to help keep me active that I actually enjoy. I recently tried hot yoga for the first time and I love it! I used to do regular yoga so I figured that hot yoga might be fun.
I really want to try a spin class, but for some reason, I haven’t been able to find the motivation to actually go to one.
I don’t know why I can be motivated for one thing but not for another. I’ve been trying to at least go to gentle yoga once a week because then I’m doing something. Right?
I know that I feel a lot better when I’m more active, but I just can’t seem to get myself to do anything. I wish I had someone who lived close by who enjoyed doing the same activities as me.
I used to go to the gym with my best friend all the time in high school, but now we are attending universities that are far away; she’s in Sudbury and I’m in London. When we used to go to the gym, I had a reason and motivation to actually go, along with someone to push me to work harder.
Of my friends here who are active, or are trying to be more active, there are few who enjoy the same activities that I do. I can definitely go to the gym with some of them and get in a workout, but I need to find activities that I will enjoy and go to frequently.
I’ve even written it into my planner because I am way more likely to do something if I have it written out, but still, I didn’t go. I realize that I just have to buckle up and do it, but I wish I had someone that would go with me so I didn’t feel as weird going to my first class. I’m not sure whether it’s just an insecurity thing, since I haven’t ever been to a spin class before, or what, but I just can’t seem to get myself to go.
If I like spin classes, then I will have no problem going alone, but I like to do things with other people if I have never done it.
I think I’m just gonna have to go alone and be alright with it.
