    I bought a membership to 24 Hour Fitness today.
    Do you think that will be enough?
    Or do I actually have to go?

    I bought some of those fitness videos. I could never understand why I wasn't getting fit. I watched those videos 3 times a day :lol:

    Gym memberships can be fun. I was thinking about one myself now that I am home all the time. I have a a treadmill and Dvd's, but miss the companionship sometimes.

    I ordered a fitness video and my DD and I sit down to watch it and it was the funniest thing I've ever seen! We both laughed so hard we cried. It was Body Flex Greer Childers. I'm not saying it wasn't a good fitness routine just do not do it with anyone in the room, not even your pet. :lol:

    I use to go to the gym and loved it. It was an all womens gym. I went all the time and either stayed the same or gained weight. This time I just have to tell myself just beause I did half an hour on the treadmill doesn't mean I can eat half a large pizza by myself! :lol:

    I actually enjoyed going. I am not a fan of cardio though. But resistance training I loved. I am excited to get back in to it. I just keep growing and growing.. I need to get my rear in gear. For now on if I have a banana split i am just going ot slather it all over my midsection, that is where it all ends up anyway!!

    WHAT A GREAT THREAD! Yes, mamabird u have to go AND participate. Sucks doesn't it?

    I actually had a chat with DH THIS week about him having to roll my sorry butt out of bed earlier so I can get to work earlier so I can leave in time to go to exercise class. We'll see how that will go on Monday. A lot depends on how much verbal abuse he is willing to accept first ting in the morning. (Did you get that I am not a morning person?)

    My favorite part of the day is sitting for half an hour and watching FIT TV - gosh they sure work up a sweat - well, I do too, eating my snack and drinking my wine. :twisted:

    There is a clause in their contract that lets you out, IF you get a signed note from your doctor that exercising would be detrimental to your health and well being. Then they will let you off, some places will let you take a break until you get a doctor's release and then you start the membership back up :D


    Myself, I do occasionally watch various exercise shows at home.....from the comfort of my recliner ofcourse :oops: :shock: :oops: I do try to eat something low cal while watching them, though :roll: :lol: :lol:

    I've belonged to our community center gym since the end of January. I HAD to do SOMETHING!!! DH goes with me sometimes, but my favorite time to go is early in the morning. Then I get it out of the way and feel morally superior to everyone else for the whole day! Seriously, though, I do feel better--I'm up to 40 minutes (2 miles) on the treadmill at least 4 days a week. I've been wimping out once in a while lately, but I never let myself off the hook for 2 days in a row. And I actually have a biceps muscle now that I never had before! Go--you'll be glad you did!

    I joined our gym when I first moved here.. and used it faithfully to rehab my shoulder after surgery.... but the only thing that got lighter was my wallet.. I think I'm going to give up my membership as the hours just don't work for me.. and I could be buying fabric with that money.
