The gym that I abandoned last year sent me a 10-day free “alumni” membership pass for my birthday, so I went back first thing this morning. The best part was getting on the scale and discovering I was down nearly two more pounds…only 8 more to go to reach the goal I arbitrarily set for myself!
My other discovery was that, when compared to taking a real walk about the neighborhood, walking on the treadmill is dreadfully boring. The way the televisions are positioned means walking with head tilted back at an awkward angle, and the surrounding scenery is the pits.
Tomorrow I will be back walking in my neighborhood, enjoying the delightful fall scenery and weather. No gym for me.
