1. I joined a gym. Really. And I even did my first work out there. Our county has several really good gyms and it’s a really small county, so there are two really close to my house. Their annual fee is reasonable, but I wasn’t ready for that commitment. As a pilot program, they are currently offering a three month membership that is only a couple dollars more per month than the annual, so I jumped on that today. As long as I go to the gym at least 7 times over the three months, it’s a better deal than paying the daily rate. I did 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes on a stationary bike, and a wee bit of lifting. I may not be able to move tomorrow.
2. Today I also received the gift of time. That’s a gift that I will take any day. One of the preschool moms offered to take Shoo home after preschool for a couple of hours, which gave me the time to workout, run to the grocery store, and eat lunch. I’ll return the favor next week, which is actually a gift too as Shoo and his friend will entertain each other and I can get household chores done. It’s a win/win all around and I’m so thankful that Shoo’s preschool class this year is so awesome.
3. I was wrong. Moore County is actually the second smallest county in Tennessee. The smallest is Trousdale. Yes, my husband corrected me this morning and yes, he is a geek. At least his love of travel to visit places like that coincides with my desire to run a race in all 50 states. The nice thing about Moore County being small is we’ll be able to get out of the county to get a beer while we are visiting. ;o)
