It's absolutely true that I don't have a gym membership. This is something I established very early in my bodybuilding journey. Note the name of this blog: The Diary of a Procrastinator. This is a VERY telling fact about me. I am so true to the word that the thought of driving to get to the gym makes me not want to do it. This was the problem I faced in the beginning, even when the gym was down the street from my work! Alot of people I come in to contact with are the exact opposite. They need the gym, the vibe, the energy, the distraction from their hour of cardio. For me this is what a 19" TV mounted on a floor/ceiling beam and The Food Network are for! :)
This all being said, things might be different now if I were to give the gym a chance, but since my husband and I invested in our own gym equipment over 6 years ago, it's become quite part of the norm to be happy with working out at home. We even have a whole floor dedicated to our equipment which we are just starting to finish the renovations on. Personally I love being able to do my thing in whatever manor I want and not worry that I can't superset something because someone is on a bench I need, or being slightly self consious if the broccolli I ate is coming back to haunt me if you know what I mean. I have mini dance parties between sets and though I can make a fool of my self as well as the next groovin chick, I enjoy my space, my zone.
I am proud to be a home fit body, going against the norm, yet still producing fantastic results. Don't get me wrong, I love gyms. They keep me going when I'm away from my "Dungeon" as I call it but I'm proud to show people it is possible to get a competition figure with the right equipment and dedication. And maybe even a little procrastination. ;)
