Gym Addiction

So I think I'm addicted to my gym.

I've been going to the Y about a month now and I've been going more and more regularly, usually 5 days a week, and I love the people, the facilities, everything.

I'm in that new gym honeymoon phase.  I go at 6:30 in the morning and the clerk at the front desk greets me with a smile and a cheerful hello.  Every one already working out is quiet and pleasant and someone is always already watching Bravo so I can pick a machine in front of Millionaire Matchmaker and be happy as a lamb.  Well as happy as a sweaty lamb can be.

I walk downstairs and say goodbye to the cheerful clerk, say good morning to the people I pass starting their workouts and they say good morning back!  It's like a community gym!

I find this fascinating.  I'm kind of in love with the whole concept.

What's your favorite thing about your gym?


  1. My favorite thing about the gym is not going to one haha. Actually, I used to adore the gym I went to but I became too poor to continue going there. So I gathered up all the equipment I would need to do my workouts at home and I love it! Getting myself into the car to go to the gym was a battle before, now all I have to do is change into some comfy clothes, unfold the treadmill, and get going. And as you saw when you were at my house, the treadmill is in the living room so it's pretty difficult to ignore. ;-)

  2. That is a handy reminder. I have a treadmill in the guest room for my reminder. I finally dragged my butt in there and started using it this week.
