Hey...it's me Jones. We haven't been on the best of terms lately. I know that I haven't called and have been ignoring you but I've been in a funk. I keep thinking about my best friend's wedding and the dress I'm wearing and how I'm going to look hella-chunk and I'm just overwhelmed. Because of that looming thought of looking 20 lbs lighter I eat massive quantities to sabotage my plan and end up looking like Gilbert Grape's mom.
I give myself a goal every week to stay away from all fried foods. After about 3 days I start getting a little Tom Seizmore-ish from Sober House and just break down and eat like waffle fries or an egg roll. I've given myself goals to cook...and I do it one day and feel so accomplished and just tucker out for the rest of the week. It's like I have zero will power and because of that I lack the motivation I was developing to attend your facilities.
You (Gym) are like the Dr. Drew for me, except less attractive and more smelly, and I need to figure out how to break out from this rut. I've started reading this blog In It To Gym It (recommended by my friend Robyn who also has a great blog) and it's comforting to know that I'm not the only one that struggles.
I did receive a call from my Gym Boyfriend yesterday. And by call I mean he called because I'm pretty sure it's mandated by Lifetime Fitness to call all members they signed up who haven't shown up in like a month. But he did say I could talk to him personally (which I took to mean make out with by the treadmill) whenever I needed to. He also called me "Ash" when he said good-bye so I've set our wedding date and have the details already in place. Perhaps that is jumping the gun...but I mean you can't fight a love like ours.
With all this frustration and that boost from GB (Gym Boyfriend) yesterday I think that the only way to overcome this funk is to return to your open arms again Gym.
Don't expect me to be in a good mood.
