Non Scale Victories Linkup

Hi Everyone!
It's Thursday - so I am linking up with KTJ Weighing In and Life by Lex for the
 Non-Scale victories Link-up!!

I have great news! I have finally decided to buy a gym membership! I told my STB (soon to be) Hubby that he needs to come with me. He usually goes to the gym at work during his lunch break, which is great, but I would rather work out with him.
We are going to do a 14 day free trail at LA Fitness and either decide on a membership there or switch over to a different gym that is a little closer to our home. They are both less than 15 minutes away so it doesn't really matter which one we go to.
To some of you this may not be a big deal. To me it is a HUGE deal. When I am home trying to work out I can think of 13808258029025 things to do other than work out. It's ridiculous. Or my daughter is hanging all over me and wants held while I am rockin' out to Jillian Michaels. She weights well over 20lbs so I have tried to use her as free weights and do some arm curls. As Mama Laughlin said today "I do the best I can with what I have"
Actually paying  for a membership will help me be accountable. In today's world - who wants to pay for something that isn't used. If I am paying for a gym membership I am going to use it!
Both gyms have childcare. I am skeptical about leaving my daughter there but first impressions mean everything - so I will see how it goes! Have you used Childcare at your gym??
 Family means everything to me - we are doing this together for each other!

That is awesome that you've made the leap to join a gym! I look forward to hearing about how it goes!

THANK YOU for the shout out!!!

Awesome job on that gym decision! If our gyms around here had childcare, I would be all up for that....but since I live & work in a small town, our gym doesn't have childcare. The one that does is about 30-45 minutes away.

FORTUNATELY my 2 little bits WILL do Just Dance on the Xbox with me, let me be when I'm on the treadmill, & get in the floor with me when I'm doing the sit-up app.

I can't wait to see you along this journey!!!!

Thanks again for the shout out!

Way to go joining a gym. Such a huge step! I also have a hard time working out at home. But, if I have a scheduled date the gym or with a class, I rarely miss it. My trick is to not go home in between work and the gym. If I bring my clothes and just change in to them at work, I feel like I have to go since I am wearing work out clothes!

Lisa said...

We have a free membership (because the hubby is in the military) and I have yet to use it because I'm too nervous about using the childcare! If you end up using it, I would love to hear how it goes!

You go girl. A gym makes such a difference. I used to day all the time I'd work out at home, but the hunt just helps me do it more!

I miss getting to go the gym! Mine didn't offer child care but I would have utilized it if they had! That was one of my main probs..finding someone to keep the kids while I went.
