Our expert says:
It's not stupid at all, it's a very common problem. Difficult one though, and you've experienced what the answer would be - finding people to train with you. That's probably what I would have said had I read only the second part of your question and not known about recently moving. But perhaps there is still someone who you can find to train with you? It's an opportunity to make a new friend, at the very worst?
The other thing is to manage your time so that yo utrain when it is quiet. That would at least help with feelings of being looked at. I'm not sure if that's possible, but if the big barrier to training is feeling watched, then train when you can't be watched!
Finally, you need a goal. It sounds as though the goal at the moment is to get fit and lose a few kilograms. And that's great, keep it. But it will help you a lot to find a purpose, a target to shoot for now. For example, you might say you want to run 10km by the end of April, and then start preparing for it. That way, you have a goal that drives every session. As always, those goals are best shared, so perhaps the best thing to do is to find a friend who'll run 10km with you and then go for it together.
Sorry I can't be more helpful - you just have to work around the problem and be creative about how you tackle it.
