I Work Out!
In February my knight in shining armor presented me with the idea of getting a gym membership. I like to use the excuse that I’m thrifty to therefore justify not working out. However, there were two things to take into consideration:
1. The membership was only $30/month. And, no commitment. I spend $30/month just on chocolate.
2. I sometimes run, which is my justification why I don’t need a gym membership. However, I quickly learned that there are hills everywhere in San Francisco. We even joke that it’s literally up hill both ways. Great way to work your gluteus maximus, but I’m not that ambitious. Yet.
I gave in and got a gym membership. The other nice part was that since my knight didn’t have a job yet, he would work out in the mornings and then become my personal trainer when I got home in the evenings. I have to give kudos to him for putting up with my complaining and general laziness. The results started to win me over as I realized how ridiculously weak I really was and how much more toned I already felt. Since then I’ve continuing going to the gym on a regular basis. Granted, it’s not always with a smile on my face as I’m not getting up at 5:30 am to do it, but I like what I’m seeing. And, my knight now has a job, so he’s not barking orders at me while I cry on the floor.
