Going to the Gym is fabulous: Reason #843,898,894,890

Filed in THE BABBIES 26 comments

So if you follow me on twitter  on my @tweetmeblack account you know that I've been in the gym a lot.

Yup thats me on the treadmill, watching Cassius, Clay and Solstice in the daycare, on the CardioTV. Yup I wear the flower to the gym… LOL People always stop and ask me about it but errr ummm I wears me a flower just about everywhere…   More shocking than me with the flower is… I am loving  the gym…  I've always wanted a gym membership… But I never got one cause I thought I'd never go or flake out on it…. Why? Cause I'm a starter and stopper about some things… But also cause I've listened to countless people whine about how much they hate the gym, Or how working out sucks sooo bad, or hoo hooo and haa haa…. But if I had taken the time to listen to myself… and just try it… I may have found out way earlier that I kinda, sorta, totally and competely love the gym..

I love moving my body. I love when the drops of sweat drip down my face and back. I love when the little number on the eliptical or the treadmill roll to 45:00 mins or. 2.5 miles or incline 5.2 or speed 3.6 or whatever I'm trying to push myself to for that work out…

I love the immediate gratification I get from walking into that big ass gym room with the goal of 30 mins on the ellipitical and knowing that 30 mins later I will have met that goal. Just like that.  Its instant gratification with the added bonus of a delayed satisfaction of dropping this extra weight that I've been holding on to for too long. Its me setting a goal, doing the work for the goal, and getting it done. I'm doing whatever I've got to do to make it happen for me… Its the first step of many  life changes to bring me more joy… 

I now realize that the trip to the gym is about  more than the physical weight loss or the time spent working out. For me its the fact that every step on the treadmill, is a step that I am taking for me…

Everyday, I make dinners, wipe booties, pack lunches, raise babies, clean bathtubs, and do all kind of shit that is more about other folks than me…. But when I pick up my gym bag, grab my keys and walk out that door all that I do in the gym is more about ME than anything else… I like that… I need that… And I'm so glad that I've gifted myself with health.  Its step one in a life that is soooo Senam… Cause really thats all I've ever wanted. And finally  I'm loving myself enough to go get it.


Stay Fierce , Fabulous, and Taking steps torward a life that is SO YOU,

Oh Senam-when you put it that way YES it sounds divine!  But somehow I cant seem to convince my back, legs, feet or any other body part to feel so motivated.  But it gets done-just wish I could be as optimistic as you are-Im too busy cussing myself out for getting this out of shape!  Keep enjoying mama & keep sending encouragement to my old behind!

Search engine optimisation has never really had a proper home, because its very
technical it is best suited for workers who have researched the business and have industry experience, this can be
quite rare with a lot of professionals though
Added this to Facebook, very good

First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that
I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you
need to write more on this subject, it might not
be a taboo subject but usually people don’t talk about these issues.
To the next! Many thanks!!

So does things like social media activity now contribute as
search engine optimisation? I was told they help after the Panda algorithm refresh

Undeniably imagine that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest
factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as folks think about concerns that they plainly don’t realize about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as defined
out the entire thing without having side effect , folks could
take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thank you
