Me: Hi, my name is Crystal and I am a bad gym bunny.
Audience: Hi Crystal!
Sigh. I must be honest. I think I've only stepped into the cool air-conditioned doors of my gym 3 times this year. It's not that I don't enjoy going there...it's a really nice gym, clean, lots of classes offered, a good cardio/weight area and a great swimming pool. It's 5 minutes from my house and I drive by it every day after work. There's really nothing bad to say about the place.
What's the problem then? Duh....I don't know. I've been working on my running a lot this year, so I've been putting my shoes to good use out on the pavement instead of the cushioned cardio floors of the gym. I've got my hula hoop at home that I use every couple of days and a few exercise tapes that keep me entertained as well. I've been tempted just to cancel the damn membership but I just can't seem to do it. Why? Cuz I do love to swim and my backyard pool just can't compete with my mileage and I would love to take a spinning class now and then..and I love a good treadmill workout every so often...and I just can't let it go!
So, I've decided to give myself a gym ultimatum. Either I go to the gym at least 2 days a week for the rest of the month or that baby is going to be canceled, because if I'm not going to use it, then I should stop spending $$ on it. And that, my friends, is that. Maybe I'll go swimming today-my poor little gym bag is just waiting to have the dust bunnies swept off it. Even a treadmill run sounds good since it's already heading into the 90 degree range for the day.
After all, I've only got 32 days till the trip home. I've got some serious work to do!
