I typically make it through 7 days of the 30 day shred before I give up. If I get a gym membership I go a few times a week for a month or two and then something gets in the way. I eat healthy for a little while and then get lazy and it is back to fast food. The thing about this that is so crazy is that Nick is a championship level athlete. He has medals and trophies and spends LOTS of time in the gym.
So, it would seem like a logical thing for me to just join the gym with him, right? That hasn't always been the case. For one, I am intimidated. I am not a heavy lifter and have never been that strong. Yes, I was athletic in high school and college but that was a long time ago. Thinking about what plan Nick would have me do has me scared. Secondly, I am insecure. I worry about looking dumb since I don't really know what I am doing. And in the vainest fashion, I worry that I won't be wearing the right clothes. I mean, really? How stupid is that?
So, after talking with Nick, I have joined his gym. My goal is to feel better and look a little better, too. An obvious bonus will be that I will get to be involved in something that Nick loves and in the process spend a little more time with him! So far, I have been everyday since I signed up (so, 2...ha) and Penny LOVES going to the playroom and playing with the toys and the other kids. I feel good and glad that I am there and my fears have mostly been put to rest. I am VERY awkward and have a lot to learn but everyone has to start somewhere.
