With really only 2-3 hours of time to relax at home before hitting the sheets during the week, I have no time to hit the gym. The closest location to my house for my current gym membership is 28 miles away. I do drive past it on my way home everyday but since there's a limited time at home with DB, going to the gym the two days a week he coaches isn't worth the $26/month I was paying. I know I wouldn't make it out there on the weekends every week day. When driving so much during the week, I'm enjoying being in my new town. I have to give my Si a break.
I noticed that there's a chain of gyms within walking distance from home. I checked out the web site and they have quite a bit of cool amenities including a pool, sauna and classes that will fit my schedule during the week. I could at least hit the gym 4 times a week but it was $35/month plus the $120 registration fee.
Since we just moved in, I think I'm going to try doing without a gym for a bit and see how I do. And, it'll also save us $35/month. Saving money is always good. My #gymstatus is no more, as Nikki Galladay Tweets occasionally from my guilty pleasure, The Bad Girls Club. (Met her, yup!) I was able to do sit-ups and tricep dips while watching last night's episode. I am trying to jog farther with Bevo when I take him to go potty around the neighborhood and DB just put air in our bike tires so I definitely need to ride my bike more. It was a gift and I should really take advantage of having one. I think our chains are a bit rusted so we need to get that fixed. And I'm getting my own P90X videos because they sure did kick my butt! I definitely want to hike Mt. Diablo someday soon. My sister did it years ago and came home super dark! I'll be caking on the sunblock.
Perhaps I'll get a NextGen group together and do it. I will definitely be staying on my BeeMWellness products because I know they work!
Wish me luck!
How do you balance staying fit and your personal/work schedule?
