So, for the large part of this month, my gym has been BUSY...and by busy I mean the kidzone (where the kids can play and "workout" as Gwen calls it while mommy and daddy can hit the gym) has a line a mile long...you waste MOST of your workout time just waiting in that ridiculous line!! The cardio machines (treadmills, ellipticals, stairmasters) are full, and many of the weights and especially the weight machines are VERY full...why you may ask? Is it because no one wants to run outside in the cold of January? Is it because my gym is shiny and new and everyone wants to try it out? Maybe it's because there's a hot new personal trainer that all the ladies wanna take a look at...all of those theories are fantastic possibilities but the truth is, it's tourist season at all gyms, everywhere, around the world...around the universe, perhaps. You see, many people have made New Year's Resolutions...resolutions to lose weight, get back in shape, feel better, etc...and the brand new shiny gym membership is the way to do that...the only resolution I've made is, quite frankly, to drink more margaritas...but that's not the point...the point is...these tourists are in my way...they are in my way of something I've been solidly working on for several months now...at almost 34 years of age, I'm finally figuring out what it means to eat healthy and get in shape...I've always been a fairly athletic person but once you have kids, things change...and by change I mean expand and soften up...so I've made it my personal goal to shrink and harden up...and I'd appreciate it if you tourists would go back to the State of Couch Potato so the rest of us who actually get our money's worth in a gym could get our space back...
