Good News!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

This morning when I went into the gym, I was told that the owner was able to sell the gym to someone who had been interested in it two months ago. They called her up Tuesday (owner's birthday--was it a sign) to tell her they had gotten financing approval to buy the gym! Everyone was so excited and happy that we ripped off the numbers the auctioneer put on all the machines and then cheered. It is so surprising how we have become close just by simply exercising with each other every day. We lend each other books, provide information, share recipes, etc. It is really a great group of women that I did not want to lose touch with. We all know how we always say we will keep in touch then people get busy and do not take the time to call, meet for lunch, etc. WHAT A HAPPY DAY!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

P.S. Thank you for responding to my earlier blog about the gym and encouraging me.

Sad Day For Me

Monday, April 04, 2011

Well, today I woke up like usual and got ready to go to the gym before work like I usually do for anywhere from an hour+ to an hour and a half. When I walked in the door, the morning gym worker (wonderful person) told me to look at the notice posted. The gym is closing (for financial reasons) on April 15!! It about made me cry. I have made so many wonderful friends at the gym and enjoy the morning work out which totally gets me ready for a stressful job (law firm) that I just hate the thoughts of not starting my day there. Now what am I going to do? It was really hard to find a gym that opened early enough to work out before work that I could afford. We have had some high class gyms open after I joined this one, but they are very expensive. I just do not know what I am going to do other than work out at home before work. Thank you for letting me pour out my feelings and upsetness. emoticon

  I understand your pain. Much of your experience at the gym is the human connections. So many upscale gyms are just not affordable to the average person. I go to the local Y which is both inexpensive and well-equipted. Would that be a possibility for you?

  What a bummer! Sometimes gym's move to different location for cheaper rent. I know the Curves gym has moved to different locations because of rent issues, in my city. There is also community rec centers, membership or pay as you use. Rec centers in my city, open the workout rooms and pools at 6 am.

If you have managed to get phone #'s from your new buddy's maybe they have some solutions to share!

    Wow, that stinks!! Such a sudden closing, too.
Do you not like running outside? I had to stop going to my gym because I'm a college student and therefore too poor to pay for a membership. But it made me realize that I love running outside. Especially in the morning when all I can hear are the birds chirping and my feet hitting the ground at a steady pace. As for the weight machines, I just do the strength exercises and they are really help me tone my body!
If not, then I hope you find another great gym, maybe all of your friends from that gym will join you in our new one!
Best of luck

Daylight Savings Time

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Well it is that time of year again! The time I love the best -- when we have more daylight in the evenings. Everyone remember to move their clocks AHEAD this Saturday night before going to bed. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I truly need the reminders. Our clocks in the house are never at the same time and that is because of my mom.

Good Visit With Family

Thursday, February 24, 2011

We had a really good trip to Virginia to see my family and a wonderful visit with everyone. I actually lost a pound when I weighed Monday morning. Cannot figure how I did that with all the good food they served!! My mother seemed somewhat not as good as the last time we saw her which has me concerned. All in all though it was a wonderful trip and perfectly timed. They got 7" of snow on Monday, the temperature really dropped, and gas went way up!! Cannot believe the good timing for our trip.
