1.) I am seriously out of shape outside of running. Last night I did The Shred Level 1 (with 3 pound weights no less) and could barely make it through and I promise you I’m not exaggerating. My legs felt like they were going to fall off by the end, and this only confirmed even more how much I need to be consistent with cross-training and specifically strength training. I am sooo sore today. Ouch.
2.) I have to do one of my least favorite activities today – go to the DMV. That’s the one issue with living in the DC area – you can move just 10-15 minutes from where you lived before and you have crossed into another state and have to change everything. My hope is that it is somehow as painless as possible – – I already filled out all the forms and have all the documents I supposedly need, but it never seems to be that easy at the DMV,so wish me luck.
3.) I mentioned this briefly, but I found a gym!! I ended up going with the Washington Sports Club, which is a pretty popular gym in the DC area. I googled “WSC discounts” and the second thing that came up was “GWU Alumni discount” which is when I knew it was meant to be. It’s still pretty expensive (if you ask me) at $59 a month, but this includes access to all of the gyms in the area, which is normally $74 a month. There are two locations within a 10 minute walk from my apartment, and one that is just 5 minutes from my office, so I feel like it’s worth it because I can actually go. I am also getting a free personal training session, which will happen on Tuesday. I told the trainer about my blog and he said he’ll do his hair that day so I can take pictures and document it! =) Stay tuned.
Do you belong to a gym? If you feel comfortable sharing, what town/city or state do you live in, and what is your monthly rate? If you don’t feel comfortable, will you share the average rate for your area?
I’m so curious what amounts are around the country!
