Hi everyone -

Well I didn't join the gym. I hate those high pressure sales tactics with a passion! Last time I went in just to find out the cost and they tried to keep selling me personal training. They wanted to give me a "special deal" since I was previously a member of one of their other gyms. Hah! One week later there was a sign out front advertising the same price. Nice try guys. They rubbed me the wrong way so I feel icky going back there.

Instead I dusted off my Walk Away The Pounds DVD and went into the office where we have air conditioning and turned it down wastefully low and did the 4 mile super challenge! I remember last year when I started out exercising I had trouble keeping up with the 30min WATP video. This year because I have been walking I was able to keep up fine and it's faster paced and 60mins!

Hope everyone is keeping cool.

-muse

muse -- I love my gym but also abhor high pressure tactics. With a passion. I would have "walked" too!
