Lose Weight Without Going To The Gym

September 29th, 2009

Personally speaking, I hate going to the gym. I want to lose weight without going to the gym, and yet I know I have to exercise. But I don’t like running in there with everybody watching, I don’t like being hit on by random guys who apparently feel like the gym is a good place to pick up chicks, and it’s just all around embarrassing. When I’m at home in the comfort of my own home, I don’t feel as restricted, and at the gym, I care more about what I look like rather than what I’m getting done.

This in mind, if you want to lose weight without going to the gym, it is possible. Now the best way I’ve found is to build my own little home gym. Yes, I tried the videos, and I’ve seen some people really get there with them. P90X is a great one by the way. But I got myself a treadmill, it got passed around the family and eventually ended at me for a cheaper price, and I really burned off the calories, walked, ran, did everything I really needed to.

But I also really focused on dieting and walking my dog. My dog gets out, and being a big dog, he would like to run for the hills and drag me along with him. So that’s half the battle and half the resistance training in some ways. But really, dieting is a big deal in all of this. I started drinking more water, I started eating more fruits and vegetables, I basically started focusing more on my diet. This is all how you lose weight without going to the gym.
