I did it - woohoo! For the first time ever I have belonged to a health club and have gone EVERY WEEK since I joined! It took some effort to make this into a habit, and I never would have thought that I'd be sitting here 1 year later saying that I went every week. I've belonged to other gyms before and after the first week or so I lost the momentum and quit going. This time it was different. I really made it a part of my lifestyle and I usually look forward to going. I think knowing that I had this streak going kept my incentive level high to go on those days I didn't really feel like going. Lately the weather here in WI has been bad and it sometimes gets in the way of my workout plans, but luckily I've been able to make it there and back in one piece. It did stop me from going to Zumba a few weeks ago and I was mad I couldn't go! Wow, look at that, me, annoyed that I couldn't go jump around and sweat! Who knew I had it in me! Now that I've hit a new year, we'll see if I can keep my streak going. I'm getting married in a few months so that's definitely an incentive to go. I'm not sure how my workout schedules are going to figure into married life, but I'm really hoping I can still make it there a few times per week. We'll see what happens. If I can't go I know I will really miss it!
