Went back to the gym. It is looking beautiful. I only got on a treadmill for a 5K workout but I did it. Maybe I'll go over again today. One step at a time trying to build up good habits for myself again.

Need to get into the Cardio room at some point tomorrow and I also want to do Yoga with Ginny. That's not until 7:30pm. It's worth it to join this YMCA after all. I spoke to my personal trainer friend and he said compared to other area gyms and their prices we are superior at the YMCA and we just had all new renovations again.

Well it would appear I didn't give my 30 days notice. I was charged for February and my friend who is a personal trainer said that even though I think the price is high it's fair as far as area prices go and our facilities are superior to anyone else around for the same price. So I'm keeping my membership.

Since I'm not going and they're raising the price, I'll probably cancel my YMCA membership for 2014. Getting accepted to the Masters degree program will give me 2 years of unlimited access to the college gym facilities and For the next 8 months before school starts I have to be honest with myself. It's going up to $83/month that's just too much now.
I also joined Living Social which offers insane deals at work out places near me. I can get a month of unlimited Yoga or whatever for $20 or $30 bucks. Or 20 workouts for $20 bucks, just search the deals. I think overall I'd use those passes up completely and it would be cheaper. I plan to make 2014 the year of my FREE to ride mountain bike and burn thousands of calories on my beautiful rides.
$83 is too much to pay for something I'm not using. Time to quit my membership and find something else. Sorry YMCA, I love you so much, but the individual membership is just too much for me now.

That would be so cool! I know the YMCA is more expensive than other gyms but I know how much further my membership goes. It's not just for me for the full service gym and facilities it helps my community as well funding afterschool programs and other things for local families. I don't mind paying the extra that you don't pay at other gyms. Plus there are no other gyms that are walking distance from my home.

Gathan's class was an great challenge as usual.
He will choose 3 exercises and put us through 2 or 3 circuits. Then he'll switch it up. The last 15 minutes is usually reserved for core work, stretching and cool down. Walking is difficult after the work outs. He has this 3 days a week, and I need to make it a crazy habit to attend all threee.
The proud, happy moment was when he welcomed me back and told me he was really glad to see me.

The fitness studio is reopened with all new hardwood floors, a new bright paint job and better lighting. Perfect way to kick off the new room was Monday night Yoga with Ginny, amazing as always. Tonight Gathan will have his regular Body Conditioning class at 6:30pm. I have plans to get to that. Join me!

What I really need to do is get dressed at 6:30 tonight and walk over to the gym for the 7pm Body Conditioning class with Gathan. No more slacking, no joke. I love that class and I love how I feel when I go, so I just need to get dressed and show up.

We have everything you need for all the classes at the YMCA. I recommend bringing your own small towel. There's a water fountain right out side the studio, but bring a little water bottle to the hard classes so you can sip there during your work out and not run out. I go through about 4 cups during Gathan's class, there is one break long enough to zoom out and refill. I could bring a 1L bottle, but I like having a little one that's not in the way.
