Gym Membership

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

I finally joined a gym. Yeah, as much as I love My Fitness Coach for the Wii, I just haven't been able to find time alone to do it. I used to do it in the morning before Bel woke up, but then she started getting up early, or she wants me to stay in bed with her. I joined Gold's Gym, and they have a nice daycare that Bel liked very much on the first day. But the subsequent days were another story. Now I'm wondering if I should have joined. I hope she'll learn to like it. Plus she started sleeping in again after I joined. So I've still been doing My Fitness Coach on days when she doesn't wake up when I try to sneak out of bed. (Yeah, I know, I've contemplated weaning her out of our bed, but just haven't set out to do it yet. It would be a whole new can of worms.)

In a perfect world, I would like to get to the gym 5 days a week. MWF to do cardio and TTh to do strength training. Taking classes is an even better version of the perfect world. I would have to actually get there on time, and it hasn't been happening with Bel waking up late some mornings. So in a more realistic world, it will probably be more like going to the gym TTh for cardio, and doing My Fitness Coach at home on any mornings that I possibly can.

I also signed up for 10 sessions of training. Since I've been a home workout person for so long, I have no idea how to use those machines. Even something as simple as the treadmill, they had to show me how to use it. But I have yet to really begin my training because I can't seem to get to the gym. Today, Bel didn't wake up until 11am. I thought about waking her up, but she's been really crabby when I've done that before. I guess I'll shoot for the gym again tomorrow.
