It is hard to believe that it is OVER. Curves in Yukon has Closed FOREVER.
My time at Curves has seen me lose over 170 pounds & more than 100 inches, and Gain too Many Friends to Count. I completed 954 Workouts, and Burned I don't know How Many Calories (average was about 350 - 450 per Workout).
I have been Blessed in Many ways by the Ladies at Curves over the past 3 and 1/2 years. I am going to miss so many of the Ladies, and though we have exchanged Phone Numbers and Address's, I know it won't ever be the same "Family" that it has been up to now.
I am glad that I have been a member of Anytime Fitness for 11 months. I have been using their Recumbent Bike, Treadmill, and Ellipticals in addition to my Curves Workouts.
I will be Branching Out to use their Weight Machines and try their Circuit Training. Yes, I am nervous about Other Members thinking that I 'Don't Belong' or that I am not 'Doing it right'. But I also know that most of them are too focused on Their Own Workout to think about what I am doing.
The Challenge now is to maintain the Lifestyle that I began at Curves. No Gym will ever be the same as it was at Curves. Even if some of the Curves Ladies join the same Gym, the atmosphere will never be the same. And I guess that has to be "OK".
I have been reading and talking to people about Body Building and Weight Training. I am starting to get Excited about this next Chapter in my Journey. Maybe a year from now I will be as Excited about the changes that I have seen at Anytime Fitness as I am about the changes I have seen in myself at Curves.
I will make the same Promise Today that I did on the First Day at Curves. I will give it One Year. I will be committed and treat it as a "Job". In 12 Months if I am not happy with the Results, I will look at other Options.
My Promise to Myself ~ And to YOU ~ is that the End of My Curves Membership is NOT the End of My New, Fit Lifestyle. Stay tuned for the Next Installment in My Story!!
