Ok.. so last week hubby and I were discussing going to the gym together.... he didn't seem that excited since I told him we could go every Sunday (weekdays are hectic and busy for the both of us). He didn't think it would be smart to pay for a membership only to use it once a week.
My buddy Kim has been a real inspiration in this area --- THANKS KIM!!
Well, the dear boy went to the gym today and got all the info for memberships and stuff AND he got 2 -- 30 day free passes. Now he wants to go to the gym tomorrow.
In a way I am excited and in another way I am so scared it is not even funny! I don't really have a shirt that would be good for that (I just run around in a sports bra at home, but that would not be kosher at the gym - trust me!)
I only have my 1 pair of sneakers that I use regularly - I thought gyms required you to have sneakers that were not used outside?
Hubby did ask the guy who gave him the grand tour at what times were they not really busy on Sundays -- after 12 noon is pretty darn slow ----- so then hubby asked about Wednesdays (my weekday off of work) and the guy told him between noon time and 4pm were nearly dead!
He did this because I am sooooooo self-conscious it is not even funny. I am literally fearful of this event. I read in someone's blog that they went into the gym and realized that the world does NOT revolve around them... meaning to say that no one paid her any attention and everything was fine --- that was the best comment I could have read EVER for this endeavor.
So, I have not quite decided what tomorrow will hold for me.
I have a breakfast date with my brothers and one of my sisters (there are 7 of us total --- just your average run of the mill dysfunctional family -- albeit on the large side). I need to make a trip to the fruit stand for my weekly needs (it's about 35 minutes away, but it is my FAV!!) I also need to run to the grocery store AND staples.
This is supposed to me a day off!! How do I end up doing all this other stuff. (I can't wait for breakfast with the sibs, they are always fun -- and yes, I plan to behave at breakfast and make GREAT decisions!)
Anyway -- feel free to weigh in on my dilemma. Any motivation or butt kicking you can provide will certainly go a long long long way.
So, as I said.. the question is.....
To go? or NOT to go?
