Day 88 on my walk toward Walt Disney World and Mickey
Confession time again: My moving more plan has become somewhat sluggish. Here are the reasons that I have been blaming it on:
- Due to my morbid obesity, even walking takes a toll on my joints. I end up with aching hips, knees, ankles, and somehow even a shoulder. Go figure, right? Walking on hard surfaces is just plain painful. (Remember: when I take a walk I am doing major “weight bearing” exercise.) 🙂
- The temperature change brings on a general sluggishness.
- The longer nights bring on a general sluggishness.
But I think I have just plain run out of steam for a moment.
So my plan for today was to investigate the cost of joining our local fitness center. If I just join to walk on their wonderful track which is a suspended three-lane track, indoors and carpeted, then it is only $150 a year. Not bad, right?
But if I want to use their workout machines, then it is $380 a year. Now that’s just over one dollar a day. And it would be a good idea to do some strength training a couple days a week, too. Right?
I’m looking for opinions on this one. I will talk it over with Mike (my wonderful hubby) tonight. If I could get him to join, too, I’d go with his preference. (BTW: So far he hasn’t shown any interest in a gym-type membership.) What do you think? Please weigh in; it would be very helpful. Thanks!
Meet you at the Kingdom!
