Amongst all the junk mail I got last week, there was an ad for a gym in the neighborhood, Burbank Athletic Club, offering a 1-year membership for $99. Now, I've tried to stay active and exercise, but due to my various ailments and surgeries, I haven't actually lifted weights for a looong time. But, with this pretty amazing deal staring at me (vs. the $60/month I paid for the Y), I thought it would be good to give it a shot.
So, now my two workouts this week are more than I've had in the last 18+ months. And they weren't pretty... But it's a start -- here's to feeling the burn!
