Quitting the Gym!

From the end of this month, I’ve put my gym membership on hold for the rest of the year. I’m not giving up exercise though. I just figure getting into summer, I want to play outside!

The plan is running 4 days a week and popping up to the gym near my house (@ $4 a casual visit) to do weights a couple of times a week. Or maybe investing in some more dumbells and doing weights at home.

I also want to buy a bike, just a cheap secondhand one (I want a purple dragster with a flower basket like I had when I was 10 – that bike ruled).

With the money I save on gym membership, I might even go out and do something new and exciting. I’ve become bored with what the gym has to offer and I hate having to fit myself around a class schedule.

As to the last entry, thanks for all your comments on my huge gap! Blogger did weird thing with the table and, even with my mad html skillz, I couldn’t figure out why.

  1. I bought a great set of dumbells 2 weeks ago from Rebel online. On sale from $79 to about $60 and then as a new customer I got the delivery chucked in. 2 bars and 4 different plates – I love them!

  2. Did your bike have a gold banana seat?

  3. Great idea – Especially when that will work out so much cheaper!

  4. GREAT plan πŸ™‚ I also want to do more outdoors stuff but unfortunately it isn’t as much fun running around the streets here.. And we don’t have nearly as many beautiful green parks like you do over there… So my gym membership will have to do πŸ™‚
    I definately recommend a bike!!! cycling has to be one of the nicest ways to exercise πŸ™‚

    Purple dragster hey – you would be the coolest chick on the block I would say! Let me know if you find one! If you do you will definately have to get some spokey dokes!!!
    Summer is a good time for fresh air exercise I think, so good idea suspending the gym.
    Thanks for your comment too πŸ™‚

  9. I know what you mean about needing to take a gym break. I’m on one too at the moment. I think as long as you keep up other activities its a great thing – that way when you get back into it you enjoy it again rather than seeing it as a chore!

  10. Thx for the motivation, Kathryn!
    Love reading what yr up to πŸ™‚
    It’s good to read about someone who’s done it – gives me hope.

  11. Ohhh the bike souds hot! (said in an un-ironic Paris Hilton way)

    Sounds like a terrific idea – getting sunshine & fresh air instead!

  12. ohhh that bike sounds so cool! if you find one, lemme know.. cause i want one too!!
