I did keep the gym membership. And it's been great! As soon as I put on my blog that I had done it but wasn't sure about it, I had a friend say "I'll do it with you!" and at that point I realized, hey, this could be really fun. Now Cash is happy that he gets to see his buddy there every time we go, I'm happy that I get to work out, even happier that I get to do it with friends, happy to get a break from the kids...and even the twins are happy at least 60% of the time when I pick them up. :) But hey, they cry all day no matter what they're doing, so at least someone else can listen to it for an hour.
It's also nice that since there are so many of us, it's not even like I'm sticking them in there with a bunch of strangers - there are kids from church and our playgroup that they're already familiar with, so it's just like playgroup without the parents.
But wow, I really do better when someone else is motivating me since this is definitely up in intensity from what I do on my own. Within the first week or two I'd been to kickboxing, spin. yoga, toning classes, water aerobics and who knows what else. I have yet to attempt the belly dancing or Latin dance classes since I will look like an extremely white and gawky fool next to a whole room full of real Latinas, but maybe I'll get up the nerve soon. Anyhow, I wish all this gym time meant I was turning into a fine specimen of lean-ness and muscle, but hey, you can't wish for too much.
