Morning…. UGH! I overslept and missed my morning Shred. Something to do tonight after my cardio workout. I’m scheduled to cross train, but I think I’m going to swap Wednesday and Thursday workouts and run instead.
Brekkie was simple and delicious.
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: Grape Nuts, unsweetened coconut, chopped almonds
- Everything tastes better with cute dishes and silverware!
Hopefully this will help keep me fueled through a 10 hour workday.
Quitting the Gym
For financial reasons, the Husband and I are trying to cut out a few unnecessary expenses. I’m the biggest offender of unnecessary expenses — too many dinners out! But we spend money in loads of other ways. For one, our weekends are filled with all these expensive activities (I just went to Tampa for the races, and Husband just went to Miami for a basketball game).
One of the things we were discussing last night is canceling our gym membership (GASP. I know!). I never thought I’d cancel our membership — I’ve been a member of a gym continuously since graduating from college.
Our family package is $75 a month. We’re spending $900 a YEAR on the gym (that’s nearly a rent payment!). I go twice a week, and Husband goes maybe three times. I pointed out to the Husband that we could buy him a used bike for the cost of 1 month’s membership (he’s not a runner).
I feel like I SHOULD cancel our expensive membership because we can just run, walk, or bike ride outside. Thanks to the 30 Day Shred, I know I can get a good strength workout in at home.
The average gym membership costs $50 a month. Do you belong to a gym? How much is your membership? Do you think it’s worth it? Or do you think you should ‘quit the gym’ in this economy?
