No joke, is it Friday yet? I’ve been asking this question all week. I’m ready for Friday.
Remember I mentioned wanting to sort through all of my old coffee mugs? Well, I finally tore through that cabinet, removing all coffee mugs that had a slight chip or stain on the inside. I got rid of 10 mugs yet still have something like, oh, 15 MUGS LEFT.
This isn’t even counting the cups and saucers (service of 12!) which came with my sets of dishes which I registered for during my engagement.
Are people still registering for a full-on service of 12 for EVERYTHING? Actually, are people still registering for all of this kitchen stuff at all? Working in the wedding and event industry, I sort of heard that millennials are doing the whole wedding registry thing very differently than I did back in the year 2000. Is that true? Please tell me, I need to know how registries are done now.
So who remembers way back to 2013 when I still belonged to Lifetime Fitness?
I know, I barely remember either.
Well, this week my son decided he wanted to become a Lifetime Fitness member. It’s crazy to me that only five years ago, I was the member and he was my kid in the kids club. Now, at the age of 14, he is old enough to be a member on his own.
My goodness. I just did a media library search in my blog for “Lifetime” and this picture by the pool with my little boy’s head popped up. Wow. He looked so little. Summer 2013.
I’m so happy my son is interested in a real fitness routine and being active so I agreed to sign him up. However, I made it clear to the Lifetime Fitness sales guy that I DO NOT want a membership too.
Lifetime is beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but the thought of having access to the gym with all of their equipment, classes, pools, locker room, and cafe completely overwhelms me.
I’m happy with my workout routine. I like to run outside my front door or on the treadmill steps away in my community gym. I really like Pure Barre On Demand. And I’m definitely not interested in this gym’s social scene. Yikes, keep me far from that drama.
While the sale guy understood, he still gave me a two month free pass as part of the deal of signing up my son.
AHHHHHH. Do I take a spin class? I always loved their spin classes. But WHICH ONE, they now offer three types of spin classes?!
A barre class? Yoga? Strength? Mixed Combat?
When? On the weekend? Instead of a running? Or, run on one of their treadmills?
This thing scares me.
So does this.
I don’t exercise at night. I can’t rush there in the morning after my son leaves for school and before I start my work day and I certainly can’t start utilizing the gym in the late afternoons when I am dropping my son off. I’m a morning workout person.
When I wasn’t working, I would head to Lifetime in the morning and get lost in there. It’s that easy to do. I don’t have time for that now! Lifetime isn’t exactly down the block and even if I do work from home, I still hold myself to a schedule which does not allow me freedom to frolic the gym.
Do you see how this guest pass is overwhelming me? I should tear it up. I won’t, but I should.
On This Day:
2/8/16: Weekend Highlights
2/8/15: Workout Recap
If you had/have a wedding registry, did you register for all of the “traditional” stuff or did you go another route? If you registered for dishes, china, etc., was it a service of 12?
Who else needs to clean out some cabinets?
Have you been to Lifetime Fitness? Do you belong to a big gym? Do you use it all of the time?
