Timing is EverythingWe’ve all done it- procrastinated hitting the gym, saying we will simply “get to it later. “ Or, the ever so popular excuse that we, “don’t have time.” Going to the gym can be a hassle, yes, but its benefits are life-changing if maintained along with a proper diet. Now, I am no doctor or personal trainer, but I do know that with even moderate exercise (it doesn’t have to be at a gym!) and a few tweaks of an unhealthy diet, the results can make a huge difference. With mothers especially, I am aware that time is precious, and most of it is devoted to the family (kudos to you moms!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze in time for yourself and your health!
I myself, find it sometimes difficult to find time for the gym. Being a student and working fulltime, I can relate to mothers. By the time there is a moment to take a breather, we find ourselves right on the road again! But, we need to realize that with all of the responsibilities we take on, there needs to be “me-time.” The gym, for some, may seem like a chore. You may be nervous if it is your first time joining a gym (may I suggest finding a gym buddy?) or maybe you’re even a returning member (go you!). Wherever you’re starting off, give yourself some credit for even considering it! Know that you do not have to rush into it. Take your time in finding the best gym for you. There are a lot of gyms out there and they are not all the same. Do your research and know that you are doing your body a big favor.
