A few weeks ago I got my booty up and went to Spin class. While I loved/hated it, I never made it back. I looked at my log for how often I have gone to the gym this year and it was sad. I looked at how often my husband had been and it was worse. I really wanted to get back in the gym, but I just wasn't making it there and whenever I went in I felt like I didn't belong. I feel like since the last time I was there it just changed. I don't know how to explain it, just feels different.
After lots of discussion with my husband we decided to cancel our membership. I went in prepared to argue with them about cancelling. Instead, they didn't even bother to save me or keep me as a member. I had been a member with them since 2007. That right there told me everything I needed to know.
Plus, have mentioned that I have a treadmill, spin bike, dumbbells and a ton of workout DVDs - there is no reason I shouldn't be working out at home. I also have a really nice paved flat trail near by for running with the baby stroller. No excuses.
There you have it. After 7 years of having a gym membership - I am preparing to tackle my battles at home. I have downloaded a new running plan, but it has me running 5 days a week which I know my body cannot handle yet. I am going to tweak it and add in more DVDs to get my strength training in. Once I get the plan written out I will share.
Do you use a gym? Where do you workout most?
