Earlier today I read a wonderful article on twitter. You should read it, but for the lazy/time limited ones among you, the basic premise is that if your response to something isn’t to say ‘hell yes’ then it should be a ‘no’. This may seem reactive and excessive, and at first it petrified me as I am very much the type of person who has always dwelled in the grey area. In the past I thrived on the intricacies, the confusion, the up-in-the-air aspect of the grey area.
If you follow my Twitter or instagram (@TalontedLex on both) you will know that I’m trying to alter my diet and lifestyle due to health issues. But we all know that a diet change isn’t enough, you need to add exercise if you want to be truly healthy. Here’s the problem: gyms scare me. I get intimidated, I never know what all the machines do and I’m terrified of spending a fortune on a gym membership that I never use. There are a few PAYG gyms around but I have no idea which are good or bad or bloody awful.
