Have you ever had one of those days where you just want to quit? Of course you have, everyone does. Tuesday I was so exhausted, in absolutely no mood to go to the gym, but as I do most days I forced myself. JUST DO IT. I’m driving to the gym and I’m literally almost falling asleep at the wheel. I swear I almost turned the car around about 5 times. I finally make it, and the only reason why is because on Tuesdays at my gym (equinox merrick park) is my favorite class of the whole week. It’s really not working out; it’s a relaxing type of yoga class. But it’s great if you’re sore from past workouts and it motivates me to go and do spinning or some other type of cardio after the class is done. The teacher that does the class is probably the best part about the class, she’s great and she gets it. The week before there was a sub and I was already sitting there with my mat, so not to be rude I stayed and endured the sub's class, which of course did not compare to our amazing teacher. This week I decided I would not be fooled twice. I wait outside the class until I see who the teacher is going to be and low and behold it’s a sub again. I was so mad I really just wanted to get out of the gym and go home. I was not going to take that class again with a sub, because honestly it’s not the same its not even close. So I say to myself “No Vanessa, you’re here already do some cardio". I walk upstairs to get my headphones and guess what.... the buds to my headphones have fallen out and I can’t find them anywhere!!!! I don’t know if you believe in signs but do you need anymore sings from the universe telling you maybe today is just not your day. Feeling guilty from weekend eatings I don’t go home, and I force myself on the elliptical for the bear minimum of 30 minutes of cardio. With no music. It was the worst workout ever. This only shows me the next time I feel like turning around and going home to take a nap while I'm driving to the gym, I’m going to do it!
