Don't like being in the gym 3-4 times a week? Do another physical activity to keep you on track. I don't really like the gym. It's ugly, smelly at times, and boring. So, I'm taking up dance once a week so that way I only go to the gym twice a week.
Do you guys remember my Epic Fail on Day 59? Well, I feel like I redeemed myself tonight. I tried a different dance studio and this time a tried a beginners "Reggeaton & Dancehall class". I learned my lesson, don't worry. Anyway, the class went really well, I was able to catch up, and it's in a much better location. I signed up for a 6 class pass. Adonis said he'd go to the "Street Salsa" class with me, hehehe. I'm not going to lie... I can already tell that I'm going to be sore tomorrow.
Anyway, if you don't like the gym, then sign up for another physical activity at least once a week. Back home I would do a sports league each season. What is your alternative?
