Gym buddy

I have a gym buddy since last month and she is the secret of success behind all my recent frequent gym visits. We send quick text before going to bed everyday about the plan for next day.  It is weird. I feel happy on days when she says “Let’s skip it tomorrow Ani” as I can cuddle for an extra hour with the kids and I feel happier on days she is on to hit the gym at 515am. I know right? That’s the kind of love hate relationship I have with the gym. I am neither a gym person nor a morning person naturally and it takes a lot to push myself to get out of bed at that unearthly hour. My buddy is that push.

That awesome burn and sweat after workout is priceless. It is a win win situation as we also talk nineteenth to a dozen during workout side by side. On certain days we choose to catch up on a movie and workout at media room. Sauna is reserved for weekend. We try to go at least 4 days in a week. I love this new routine.

Why am I writing about all this today? Because in spite of all that love for new routine, I failed her today morning. For the first time in last one month I gave in to the laziness and ditched her. I know I can justify myself – too much work on weekend, didn’t get enough sleep, it was raining outside anything but no I am not going to do that.  Nothing can match making someone wake up so early and wait for you only to not show up. I am sorry buddy. I will try my best to not repeat this again!!

See ya tomorrow morning at 5:05am at your doorstep 🙂

  1. That’s wonderful!! Your post reminded me of my long ago morning walk with a friend of mine when we lived in Dallas… alas now my gym is my basement so no buddies here 🙂 … I completely understand the feeling of looking forward to a dreaded routine just because it’s shared with a friend…. maybe I need to get a gym membership too !!

  2. Gym buddies Vaazhka !!! I have walking buddies and its only becoz of them I am set into this walking routine. 4:30 am ku hike povom (errr to see the sunrise).. So I need to wake up by 3:30 am and I did it only because of their push…Good luck Ani!!! keep going

  4. Having an accountability partner in the gym makes a huge difference! Luckily my husband is my gym partner and it is so helpful. Sometimes we both give in and skip, which makes me feel so dang guilty! However, other times if one of us doesn’t want to go but the other does…then we’ll suck it up and drag our booties to the gym. Keep it up! It’s all about forgiving ourselves and just keep on going.
