I've Made a Decision

I'm rejoining the gym. I quite my membership about a year ago to save money. And in a lot of ways, that was a good call. My old membership cost about $30 a month, and I wasn't using it super often. I go through phases where I'm great about going, and then months where I hardly go at all. I told myself I would just use the beach path and DVDs and Wii Fit and that would suffice.


Honestly, I'm a gym workout person. I like classes and machines with timers and weight machines instead of free weights. I have rarely worked out in the last year, and that was evident when I went to Zumba this morning with a friend. It kicked my butt.

I have decided to invest in the Costco 24 Hour Fitness membership. It's $300 up front for two years. That averages to $12 per month, which is a good deal. My health, energy level, and weight are all important to me, and are worth making an investment in. So, on Friday I am going to bite the bullet and pay for the membership. And yes, this puts me a little further behind in my goal of paying off my car by June. But I don't want to wait to be healthier, so I am readjusting my priorities. And that's okay.

  1. I would say that's a good decision! I am a gym workout person too. I like treadmills better than running on the road, especially during the cold months!
