It's official.....I have joined a gym


Well, I did it. I joined the gym. The price per month is pretty good. Just 20 bucks. I went there with a different plan in mind but darn those pesky sales people! Oh well, I had been wanting to join for a while but I never really did it because I just wasn't sure I was ready to take the plunge and it would sure tick me off to be putting out 20 dollars a month and not using it (hello, that is like 18 double cheeseburgers). It is a women's gym so I don't have to worry about looking hideous next to some buff, bronze, gym bunny (I'll still look hideous, it's just that there won't be anyone there to notice it). What I really wanted was the aerobics classes. I LOOOOOOOVVVVEEEEE aerobics classes. It gives me an opportunity to shake my butt and since I don't go to the club, my life is severely lacking in the butt shaking department. I also like the sauna and the pool but I want the classes. I think that if I enjoy what I am doing, I will be more motivated to go do it. However, I do realize that I need to bring myself into the realm of doing things not because I enjoy them but because they need to be done but hey, one thing at a time. At any rate, I will keep you all posted on the adventures of Big Momma Black in fitnees world............

Good for you!!!
I plan on re-joining again this fall. I didn't use my pass at all last summer and then never signed up again. But I'd really like to utilize some of the classes and equipment now.

That's a great price for a gym! I don't think even my stubborness could say no to a price like that. Now I want to call around to all the gyms in the area to join one.

Wow, congratulations! I have the world's most enormous mental block about exercise. The folks at my weight loss clinic are trying to get me to do 5 minutes of walking, three times a week. I don't always make the goal. ~blush~ I'm hoping to get to Curves at some point. Hang in there!

Thank you all for your encouragement. I haven't gone yet because we are fasting at our church and I don't think it is a good idea to go to the gym while you are fasting. But I will DEFINITELY blog about my first day at fitness school......
