Sigh...I joined a gym. Hear me out. It's a new gym that opens up next week. It's close by, I would go by it every day to work, it's open 24 hours, and the monthly rate is $10 and I can quit any time. I figured if I was going to join, I needed to do it now as it is probably the cheapest it will ever be, and I for some reason keep going, then I have at least locked in the cheap rate. Hey I even got a free t-shirt for signing up...
I have done other gyms, pretty much everything in the local area with the exception of Bally's. Bally's never got my interest for some reason. The other failed for lots of reasons... The first one I did was Gold' Gym. It was ok, but not really convienent. We did this before kids. I then joined the wellness center when our company was owned by Riverside so we got a good rate. That too was kinda out of our way, but we did go a lot to it, but then I got pregnant with Laura...Then I attempted Curves... I think Curves is fab for the older generation, but for young people it's stupid. Didn't do anything for me, and I could not stand this old lady telling me how to do things...Then we joined the Y after we had two kids figuring their family deal was great because of free childcare... The kids hated it, the gym was far away, and it's getting ghetto. If your not safe in the locker room, it's time to jump ship.
Mainly I want the gym for weights. I can do cardio at home, but I would like somewhere to do some weight training. So here goes $10...It's cheap, it's close by, it's open 24 hours, so if I flunk at this one god help me.
In other news I got copies of p90x from a bomb friend, and I am going to try those out. Honestly I have been scared to death to even watch them after hearing stories from people about throwing up while doing it etc. Maybe tonight I will try it for giggles.
So what's my goal? Honestly, I would like to wear a size 6. The last time I saw that was sophmore year of college. I am not even going to attempt a 2/4 goal which is what I could get my butt in during highshcool and freshman year.
