I knew it was going to happen. I’d been planning for it. For a few weeks, to be honest. But even though I knew it was a done-deal, definitely happening, bet-your-life-on-it thing, I didn’t want to post about it until it had actually happened. And it did, last night.
That’s right. Last night, after work, I walked my butt down to the gym and signed up for a 3 month membership. Booyah!
I also signed Andrew up, while I was there. He wanted to go to a different gym – one a few of our friends go to – but it has a minimum 12 month contract and costs about twice as much per week. Plus, the one I signed us up at is down the street from his work. I figure if we really get in the routine of going regularly, when our 3 months are up we can join up at the other gym, knowing we’ll stick with it and the money is worth it. Or we can just renew and stay at our current gym. He agreed with my logic. (Or agree with me so I would stop carrying on about it). I’m excited that he ended up joining with me. While we won’t workout side by side or anything, it’ll be a nice thing we can do together and will be much easier to stay motivated knowing he’s in this with me.
Since work’s still crazy busy for Andrew this week, I asked them to start our memberships on Saturday. When you’re only signing up for 3 months, every day counts! There’s an 11:15 yoga class Saturday morning that I might try to get to. I’m hoping to do yoga at least once a week. Ideally, I’d like to get that up to about 3 times a week, if possible, with maybe another day or two or just working out on my own. (Very ambitious. And now written down, so I’ll have to acknowledge my success or failure at said ambitious plan here at some point.)
So there you have it. After weeks of talking about it, it’s done. Contract’s signed. Money’s paid. Access pass is in wallet. And hopefully I’ll have an exciting post Monday morning talking all about it!
Have you followed through on anything you’ve been meaning to get to for a while? Is there anything still on your “to do” list that you’re determined to check off this week?
