New Year – 2019 Here We Come

It’s January 2nd and it’s another day at the gym for you. You drive up to the gym and there are no parking spots. You finally find a spot 8 rows over. You walk in and head to the elliptical and you find a middle-aged heavyset woman (me) on your elliptical machine. 🤦‍♀️_ Middle-aged heavyset woman is disgusted with herself. She doesn’t want to walk into the gym. She fears she will be judged. She’s signed up with a trainer and the trainer told her to go warm up on the elliptical. She at least knows what an elliptical is, but has no clue how to set any program. 🤷‍♀️_Yes it’s tough at the first of the year when the gym is packed, but do you know why that middle-aged (not so heavy) woman is still at the gym 3 years later? Because the gym-goers included her, praised her, and taught her (how to use equipment.). 🙌_Yes it’s going to be busier. Yes your equipment may be in use by someone new, but be an encourager! Plan a little extra time for your workout and help another person out or give words of encouragement. 👍_ You never know whose life you may be changing just by including them. I know — because mine was changed forever. 🏋️‍♀️🏊‍♀️🧗‍♀️💪
