Sooo, the weekend. Yes, it was a good one. Mellow and full at the same time.
Saturday night, we went to a wedding. Let me just say, going to a wedding in SF instead of having to fly across country is sooo ridiculously nice. Hopping in a cab and sleeping in my own bed afterward, yes please.
Me in the cab….
The cab guy thought I was nuts. Look at how little I managed to bring in my purse. I usually have way too much stuff and it’s bulky. You too? Or are you good about not bringing a lot? gJust the essentials- lip gloss, liner, ID, keys. Oh yeah and a granola bar for Jared who came directly from training…(yes, he showered)
Really pretty wedding, I won’t bore you with the details, but here’s a few shots:
Okay, now on to other things. Let’s talk about the gym.
Yesterday when I was on the treadmill (ummm, watching reality shows while I ran), I realized how thankful I am for my gym. Last year at this time, I was massively hating my gym. It was tiny, crowded, and the machines were out-of-date. There were no tvs, the stretching mats were dirty, and every time I was on a machine, the trainers would hound me to sign-up with them (I’m not opposed to them offering their services, it was just overkill). Going to the gym wasn’t relaxing anymore. The only good part was that it was close to my apt and my friend belonged too, so we would occasionally go to yoga classes together.
BUT, in February, another gym was offering a special and so I bit the bullet, quit my gym, and I signed up. HOLY COW, it makes such a difference to belong to a gym you love. Now I can’t wait to be there, have so many class and machine options, a pool, sauna, etc…..it is so nice and my exercise routine has really benefitted from it.
Even if you love your gym to pieces, it’s always really fun to explore a new one. Whenever gyms have free passes, I always like to go– changing routines is fun and I figure, why the heck not?! Anything to beat gym boredom factors.
24-Hour Fitness (have you been? Their gyms are sooo nice around here!) is offering a free pass, no strings attached. You can sign up through here.
Not meaning to sound too much like an ad , but thought I’d offer it to you guys in case you were interested.
– What’s your favorite part about your gym?
– Have to you been to more weddings far away or around your area lately?
– How many weddings did you go to this year? I had 9 in the past 13 months- yikes!
