After consuming way too many calories on Tuesday (all because that big software company in Redmond that starts with an M — yes, I will continue to blame them unless I lose weight this week then they will be off the hook), I really wanted to do something on Wednesday. It couldn’t be before or after work, though, which really limits my options.
Then I remembered that even though I canceled my membership at the Secret Gym, I had actually paid through the end of the month for it. So I packed my bag on Tuesday night.
On Wednesday, I drove over to the Secret Gym, changed in the spacious, clean bathroom and then rode the stationary bike for 30 minutes, or 10 miles. I read my book. Nobody else came in the little gym while I was there. It was so quiet and relaxing.
I am a little sad that I won’t be able to use this gym anymore. I just can’t afford to pay for two gym memberships. Of course, I do have a real bike hanging in my garage, but let’s not get crazy here, people. Real bikes are way too scary.
I can’t lie. The thought crossed my mind that I could probably go to the Secret Gym on occasion if I wanted to. I doubt anyone would notice or think to look up whether or not I ended my membership. But I’m too chicken. Besides, bad things happen when I break the rules.
So…I have a confession to make about the Secret Gym. The first time I went there back in December (read here), I snuck in with my co-worker and worked out without paying anything.
I just wanted to “try it before you buy it,” you know?
The very next day, I got in a car accident. (Read about it here.)
Goodbye little, quiet, clean and convenient gym that nobody knows about. And, rest assured; your secret’s safe with me.
(And the beautiful bathroom.)
So sorry for loss–but I'm with you on the bad karma thing. It just wouldn't be right to sneak in.
Yeah, I'm all about karma…Did you see this? …pretty cool :)http://www.physicaltherapyassistantschools.org/50-best-blogs-for-serious-runners/
About above link…check number 10 🙂
Haha that's funny. Bad things happen to me too when I cheat!And yes it does make a huge difference when people say nice things! I swear that lady getting off her bike was like… EXACTLY what I needed!Oh and I definitely ice-bath'ed 😀
Karma's a bad thing. I talked mess about your Ting Tings song and your playlist in general and Lois paid for it.I'd also be scared to try and go there without having a membership.
Yeppers, totally agree with the karma thing!Have a great week!
I hope your conscience is now clear, lol!Glad you were able to squeeze in that workout!
LOL that anonymous comment was from me! Apparently I wasn't signed in lol… whoops!
It's probably best not to sneak in and tempt karma.I'm the world's worst liar. I would probably blurt out something stupid and have them looking up my account as soon as I walked in the door.
lol on the bike. real ones are scary! :)i would agree with everyone else – don't tempt karma!
