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.)
