I chose a home gym over a gym membership

I have a problem of getting ahead of myself, and making rash decisions without thinking things through.

It has happened yet again, but I am determined to make it work.

After COVID hit and I lost my job, I was thrown for a loop and it took me a while to recover. I was depressed as well as being quarantined for several weeks, and all of that translated to me becoming sedentary, overeating, and putting on a lot of weight. All the drinking didn’t help either, according to my doctor. Anyway, when my doctor advised me to get a gym membership, I decided to make a stupid decision instead. I was online, and found what appeared to me an amazing home gym set-up for the same price as an annual gym membership. At the time I told myself that it was just a financial decision, because I could get years worth of use from a home gym. In reality, I was tricking myself because the real reason was shyness, and me being afraid to go work out in a gym filled with people. I know I’m not alone in this, right? It’s intimidating to go to a gym where so many people are fit and trim, and I am a big dumpy mess. The money has been spent, and the home gym will soon be here for me to assemble and install. At that point I will have no excuses and nothing to stop me, I will be able to use my home gym every day. Now all I need to find is the motivation!
