Why I Don’t Go Gym…..


How are you?

Gym is not for everyone and I fall into that category. It is not my cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate.  However for many people it is and I ain’t mad at ya, get dem gains boo boo.

However these are some of the reasons why I don’t go gym. Just for the record, I had a few day passes and had a little membership where I went and was breathing so hard in the first 10 mins.


Firstly, I cannot come and kill myself in the name of running on the treadmill.

Secondly, I am not about this healthy eating, macros, 25kg’s of protein. I have the Deliveroo app on all my technology devices and the staff know me at McDonald’s on a first name basis.

Trends and Excuses….

I can put on weight or lose it at from home for free, I don’t need a gym membership for that lol.

Also, when everyone and their dad is going gym, you feel the need to jump on the wave, but this is not Instagram, I don’t need to follow trends.

My egdes cannot be under duress just because I am on the bike working out.

And it is not everyday, are you trying to lose weight or put it on as you are so slim remarks, maybe I just want to run for the bus.

More Excuses…..

Even though my body will thank me in the long run, in the short term my body will thank me having a cheeky Nando’s instead of going to the gym.

My life is not like GCSE’s where I get the results after 2 years, I need my body to look snatched tomorrow.

Spending time with random people is not my favourite past time.

Getting motivation is a myth. If I can barely motivate myself to wake up and go to work, what makes you think I can motivate myself to go gym AFTER work? #Banter

Gym leggings are WARM I can’t lie but apart from that there is no real use for them.

Also, I need to save money. Gym can be affordable but I need to afford other things.

If I go gym and I don’t see progress, I am going to be lowkey vex and wondering why by following the instructions, I am not getting snatched.

I don’t fancy touching someone’s wet towel or sweaty mark after they finish using the equipment, body fluids are BEYOND ME am I employed by the gym to clean? No thanks.

I do not want to see that guy that ghosted me on Tinder in the gym lifting 10kg dumbbells whilst I look like a 14-year-old with no home training. #criesintosleeve

Still not interested…..

Gym at the moment is not something I am interested in, it doesn’t appeal to me – I sweat like an uncle trying to chase his future young babes in everyday life, so I don’t want to double that – sorry not sorry.

If someone didn’t realise, going to gym is long AF and I am just not here for it.

Do you go gym and if so why? If you don’t, why not?

Also, there will be another post in the next few days aboout a new brand I have collaborated with, so look out for that #plug

Peace until next time which is probably Wednesday,

    I agree, I honestly always work our from home. It saves money and is so much more convenient. What workouts do you do at home?

      Thank you for reading the post, I can’t lie I don’t even do workouts at home haha but if I would – I would probably do 7 minute workouts – What workouts do you do?

    Running on a treadmill is possibly my least favorite thing ever, so getting any kind of motivation to leave the house to do is nonexistent. I agree that you can do just as much at home, which is what I do (when I have motivation for that.) Plus, it feels like a competition, even when you don’t mean it to be. I feel you with this post x

      Thank you, the runnng of the treadmill fills me with dread, I rather go on the bike or go to a exercise class – I am glad you related/enjoyed the post x

    i agree ridiculously! i lost more weight just going out and doing more stuff day-to-day than actually having a gym membership. Gyms also make you feel like lesser because theres people who are so fit! I can’t help but compare myself hahahah

    1. thisgirlcanwritea 26/10/2018 at 8:56 pm

      Literally, I lose weight probably stressing about why I don’t go the gym haha! Comparison is the thief of joy and you are beautiful so no need to compare! Thank you for reading this post x

    Haha interesting! Well, I don’t go to gym because I feel the gym master is going to be hard on me haha. But I’ve seen my friend lost some pounds after visiting the gym and I’m challenged to when I can. Though it’d just be for the flat tummy lol

    1. thisgirlcanwritea 26/10/2018 at 8:54 pm

      I can’t lie I am never challenged to go to the gym haha – The flat tummy will have to wait whilst I am living my best life! Glad you liked the post 🙂

    I don’t go. I tried a very long time ago.It was equivalent to a very sweaty club but with the lights on. Not for me…but happy for everyone who goes.

      It is not for everyone but I am glad there is one more member of the ‘non gym’ memeber club. Thank you for reading the post!
