I'm terrible about working out... just awful! I have an excuse for every single option.
You know, it's either too hot or too cold to walk outside, too unsafe, too dark, too bright too _____... Buying a treadmill is too expensive and we don't have room for it (ok that last part is true, we're busting at the seams!).
Then gyms, oh me oh my. I haven't been to one in ages and they're so intimidating! My excuses for that have been they're too expensive, I can't do a long contract, big enrollment fee, and don't want to be around a bunch of men but can't afford the women only facilities.
Oh! And I don't really like videos because I get bored and hate doing it in front of my husband (hey... I jiggle like jello! Don't want him thinking about that during other times!
Well, I got an email from my health insurance company today (whom I actually really love) and they have agreements with fitness facilities all over the country. So, for $29 enrollment fee and $29 dollars a month I get access to a local gym. The perks are 1. I can cancel at any time with no penalties 2. if I travel I can look and see if there's a contract facility in the area and use it for no additional charge 3. The local gym has a women's only area.
Even if this package doesn't include the pool, classes and some of the other "upgrades" it's still a darn good deal. I'm totally strapped for time (as is everyone
) but I think I can convince my husband to take the kids to daycare Tuesday and Thursday so I can go before work then I'll go at lunch Monday and Wednesday since he has class from 8 am until 9pm. That leaves the weekend to spend as much time as possible with the family. Whew! Life is crazy.
Here's to hoping I'll be self-confident enough to go until it becomes habit... fake it til you make it!!
