Working on Me

Published January 11, 2016 by lynn k scott

I recently noticed that a Planet Fitness gym had opened about half a mile from my house.  I had belonged to that same gym in another city several years ago.  I decided to join again. Not because I have made some resolution to lose weight or that I’ve jumped on the fitness bandwagon, or I have delusional goals of being super skinny.

If you remember my word that I picked for the new year was “understanding”.  Part of being honest with myself is working on my body while dealing with Celiac’s, which includes regular exercise.  I figure for $10.00 per month, I’m worth that.

I don’t need saunas, pools, massages, tennis courts or any other amenity that will raise the monthly rate.  I simply need an elliptical machine, a treadmill that will allow me to run/walk and maybe a few other toning machines and I’m good.

This weekend, a (male) friend I haven’t seen in a long time, told me he liked my haircut; that it suited me and my face.  I’ve lost considerable weight over the last couple years, and I’m making some simple cosmetic changes to go with it.

I’m working on keeping me healthy.  I enjoy “me” time.  I enjoy running.  The winter weather in N. California isn’t always conducive to running outside.  A simple, affordable, gym membership will allow me to stay on track.

After all, two lattes cost more than this membership.  I for one, make coffee at home and work, so this is my “treat”.
