Life has so many obstacles from point A to point B that it should be water off a duck's back by this time. My hard-headedness has to be one of my better assets - I seldom take no for an answer - unless it comes from God.
My fitness center changed the key for the first time in nearly 5 years. I've seen the door bashed in, boarded up and the facility trashed at least a dozen times over those years. I'd say a new entry system was long overdue. When I contacted my subdivisions recreation office, I was told that a $500 deposit is required for my entry card. This allows them to know who entered the building and narrow down the potential violators. I asked what happens when the center is vandalized during a 24-hour period when I had used my coded key card. She avoided answering me but did say that I would be getting a visit from law enforcement. I asked her why cameras were not also installed and she said they are too expensive. I see a distinct pattern of contradictions here.
I drive by our community rec area 8-10 times each week and I have not seen a single soul in that building. They won't see me in there either cuz I'm voting with my dollar. I didn't even ask her how hard is it to get my deposit back. This totally sounds like a nightmare to avoid.
Why does this even matter? I haven't been there since before Christmas. Don't you ever run hot & cold on anything? DH & I have been doing cardio at home but now it is HIS knees that are the problem. My knees hurt too, but they always hurt.
There is a Bally's that I plan to visit tomorrow - hoping they will let us pay by the month for the few months we are still here. We desperately need the use of an elliptical - and I'll need one for rehab once I get my next Synvisc injections.
It is pretty much impossible to be fit when you can't be physical. My outlook is good and I am confident God has an answer for me.
