I took the gamble today and took the $100 wager that I will, in fact, find belonging to a gym with a pool useful over the next 3 months. After a lot of thought and consideration of your input, I decided that having access to both my newly set-up home gym AND a gym with a pool certainly can't hurt, and does stack the odds in my favor. This way, if I am sore and need to stay off my feet I can go swim, or if I don't have time to go to the gym during the day I can workout at home at night. I can choose the isolated fitness environment of the gym for weight lifting, walking, and other exercise or I can relax at home in my own gym on my own schedule. More choices = more likely to exercise. And there is no yearlong commitment with this special; it's three months, period. A hundred bucks for 3 months of access and then poof, it expires. If I want continued access to that gym, I'd have to plunk down their usual fees, which I can't afford. But $100? I can wager. So I did.
And in the end if I just love having gym and pool access, I can turn around and get a free week at the *new* gym which I *can* afford and check out the facilities there. Win win for me!
Now I am trying to decide what color to paint my home gym room. I really like pale blue, but I wonder if a bright, energizing color would be better for working out. What do you think?
I won't get to use my new gym membership right away. Tomorrow we are heading out on vacation! We'll be walking through mountain forests, enjoying sunshine and dog sports, meeting up with friends, and lounging on the beach. When I get back there are even *more* dog sport events waiting for us locally before school starts. And THEN I will be trying out that gym! I do wish my daughter could come and swim with me, but I can only afford a single membership. So we will keep going to the public pool until it closes so we can keep swimming together.
I am really excited to see where this next phase in life takes me! I appreciate all the support!
