I think I have Gym-phobia
I don’t know if there is such a thing as far as real phobias go, but I have such a hard time going there. Maybe it’s because I don’t like the soreness the next day or maybe its because it’s just not my idea of fun. I wasn’t big into sports as a kid but I was a cheerleader and did dance and that was fun!

I like the idea for sure, but I have a part-time job and I’m a full time Mom and of course get up crazy early for the show. I’m not sure how I’m gonna do it yet, but I’m sure gonna try! All I know is I want to feel good about my body again. I already have been eating healthy and have been able to teach myself to do that. SO, I should be able to do this, right!?
