No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Our gym membership expired at the end of March. I love this gym. We got in on a really good deal because they had just opened and were offering 18 months for the price of 12 months. Now I think their prices have increased by over 20% and I just think it's freaking outrageous what they're charging. But it is a great gym with excellent equipment, maintenance and classes. The big plus is that it's right across the street. I was thinking of just going month to month but it's 1.5x as much if you go month to month. We were paying less than half that on our last membership. There are lots of other gyms around in the area but they are nowhere near the quality. Some only offer weights. Some only offer classes. Most of the places look kind of grungy. Ours doesn't even have anything fancy like a pool or sauna, etc but I love it and am used to it. I am also just moaning and groaning and typing out my thoughts on this gym thing. My husband is saying for sure he isn't going to join again and he will just rely on the bike so maybe I can see that as a 50% discount?? Makes sense, right? Right?!
My eating went well today. I had some different stuff to chow on thanks to our Costco excursion yesterday. I also got ill in the afternoon off of something I ate. Nothing debilitating but let's just say I got pretty dehydrated. No way of knowing what it was but I think it's over. I'm going to start writing down my tracking again here on the blog. It really helps to keep things in check and I used to be so good about it. Laziness seems to have consumed me lately and I know that I'm eating too much at 'snack' time.
