My daughter joined a really nice new gym - I could add on to her membership for $45/month. I'm trying to save money, but I'm thinking I might do it just to have the added motivation of someone to work out with (and of course, access to all the machines, & pool, etc.) And if I gave up one bottle of wine a week, that would pay for it.

On Monday I'm back at the gym. I'm doing an intensive circuit training program Mon, Wed, Fri and hardcore cardio the rest of the week. Also every day I have some form of pilates planned. I can't wait to get back. The gym is my zen time!
I really want to join a gym for the use of a pool and treadmill. Plus, I love being able to go to classes and socialize. But the price thing is just holding me back. I'm making due on running and pushups for the time being.

So, I'm up to 18 pushups on my toes and 24 on my knees, which is totally amazing for someone with my fitness level. And I'm 4 weeks into a running program. Overall, I've been exercising now for 2 months.

You're doing great.

And I luck out on the gym thing. My husband is a soldier so I have access to all gyms on post for free. I pay for it in other ways, though, I guess.

I've been back for a while... mostly hanging out in the ENT forum... but I've branched out again. So freakin' hard to leave this place!

Re: Fitness Checkin

Well another week on the new program. I'm doing well avoiding all the grain items, using potatoes now and again for some carb intake.

The tough part is the summer fruit season is almost over, and I'm eating a on of it right now. I'm going to hate eating that many apples all winter.

Down about 8 pounds already.

Congrats, Rev!

I'm down a few pounds, but it's because I've been on a liquid diet since having surgery a week ago ... ugh. :P I'm looking forward to being able to eat normally again (and getting back on a regular exercise program).

Grr... Gym is closed for a week. I'm stuck with at home workouts. *sigh* I prefer to leave the house and get sweaty where my munchkins can't interrupt me.

It's probably not supposed to, but I had already bought tickets months ago to a wine event today, so I went. I sipped very carefully (and of course didn't take any painkillers today). So far so good!

I know what you mean. I also find that I'm much more motivated to complete a workout when I have to leave the house to do it. And besides, the gym showers are much nicer than mine.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I have decided to take a break from drinking. I'm going to enjoy myself at a wedding this weekend, and then I will drink again on Halloween, but then I am going to take a full 2 months off from the booze to really focus on lifting and eating. I will commence drinking again on New Years.

Ok, no more stair master, feet are not taking to it. I used to do it all the time.

Have to rotate between the bike and swimming.
