I went to the club on Saturday. I paid the fee and joined. THe club was crazy, there were people everywhere and I got that awful hamspters-in-a-wheel feeling I get when I am surrounded by lots of people staring into space like minions. Zumba was less than fun, too. THe instructor was too skinny to be inspiring, and the crowd was msotly ancient people who really shouldn't be in a high-impact aerobics class. Weird to me that the retirement village decides to work out on a Saturday, when they have all week. They didn't have any sense of personal space. I felt like I was going to hit people all the time. Even at one point, a woman asked to switch with me "because she wanted to be in all the open space" why do you think I picked that spot?!?!? BUT--and this is a bit BUT (haha) I was SO HAPPY TO GO! I finally got this out of my system!
And shopping was fun. It was a lot of walking and I was in a great mood the whole time. My fantastic mood pervaded all weekend long! I just had a great time, decorating cupcakes, drinking tea, cooking foods, building a marble roller coaster, crackling fire, crazsy cat, warm home, and crazy stagnant ice fog that beckons staying in and being cozy and comfy.
My bike got stolen, which is a bummer, but I wanted to sell it anyway, and I got a few hours off of work early for "household emergency leave" I am quite unbothered by the lack of bike.
Now. I face going to work. Ug. Had such a nice lonnnng weekend. There is so much "don't care" at work I don't know how to inject any "give a damn" into anybody. The "don't give a damn" virus is much more infectious!
I am so hyper right now!
Now, I can't stop thinking that to make this health club "worth it" I need to go 15 times a month. That would equal out the drop-in (!!!) price of the club I went to in Colorado. But. I am trying to remind myself its not about number of visits, it's about the value each visit brings. I think it will be good. Even if I only go once a week, it will be worth it. I assume the insane crowding will die down after all the people with New Year's Resolutions go back to normal.
Man, that was such a nice weekend.
