Another Change

Today, I took a deep breath and I walked into a fitness center. I walked out with a year's commitment, and a badge that will let me into the facility all hours of the day...or night. I have a trainer.

I went to school with the woman behind the desk. She assured me that "The hardest part is walking through the door for the first time." I looked at her, and thought, "Well, good then. It is all downhill from here."

Gym training -- it's been the sanity and consistent practice through many changes in my life!

No matter how many subjective issues I get wrapped up in, and how many complex predicaments face me at work, church and family life, 200 pounds is always 200 pounds. And lifting it clears the rest away for a while.

Enjoy, great lady!

I finally joined a gym with trainers two years ago. In some ways I have never felt better. Now just go work out three times a week.

Good ON you... no gym round here. Just an excercise bike rusted into position!

Important to take care of body, mind and spirit. Good move on your part.

I completely understand your struggle here. I HATE the gym. Honestly I think that even though the hardest part is walking through the door for the first time, I find it gets even harder each time. I always say it's the thought that counts...and then I never end up going!

Hi Debby, It's funny I stopped by tonight as just today I had me "intake assessment" at the local YMCA. I'm enrolling in the Livestrong program and as you may know, with that comes a free membership. So, I'm sort of on the same wave length as you today. I hate going places to exercise, but I'm going to give this a try, partly because it's so dog-gone cold around here right now. Good luck!

Oops, I meant I had my (not me) "intake assessment."

Ah, you think getting the membership is the decision - but really, it is access to that fork in the road - will you regret or embrace.

As a former gym junkie (and a former gym junker) might I just say that when you take the turn that leads to you embracing, it is worth it; and when you take the turn that leads to you regretting, it isn't.

Bit like life, really.
