Saving log - $1 tip box
Spending log - $9 lunch

Today my trainer and I worked together for the very last time at the gym acrosss the street from work. True to form, I was on an up cycle for my weight - at 187. Sigh.

I'm going to see if I can work out with a gym buddy. We don't have to work out together, I just need someone who would ask "where were you?" to counteract my natural "just one more thing". But for the gym buddy, I will to figure when I really want to go. Monday and Thursday, maybe with a Friday for an hour. I'm even toying with the idea of going every day for 1/2 hr.

I do have about 11 months or about 80 routines that my trainer wrote down. I've sorted them out by whether they are upper body (U), lower body (L), or a combo (U/L), and pick one out randomly. There are classes that you "just show up for" at about noon, which should spice things up.

I've spend a fair amount of money for over 2 years working at this ... time to really make it frugal and use all what I've collected.

    I had my last session w/ my trainer a couple weeks ago. I hate to admit it, but my motivation has been lacking. I even have a 5k coming up on Labor Day, but have done very few runs in the past month.

    Hope you keep up your motivation better than I have lately!

    Perhaps we should be gym buddies. Just put a comment in my blog, and I can put one in yours ...?

    That sounds like a good idea. Smile

    Man, my new gym is seven blocks away from where you work. If you switched over, we could be gym buddies!

    Very tempting (is this the Epicenter next to the Kress IGA?) except for the fact that my gym is next door and I get a discount rate to it as a benefit. But I am curious to meet you.
