So you know Sue? You should. She’s fun. She’s kind. She’s sparky. And she’s super fun to shop with at Marshalls. Today she’s telling us why she goes to the gym…and I love her reasons.
Why I go to the gym:
I try to go to the gym three times a week. Some people think it’s because I want to lose weight; others think it’s because I want to get healthy.
The truth is both of those statements are true. How true sort of depends on the day. I always want to weigh less and be healthier, but I’m not always working towards those goals.
Yet I always squeeze in a couple gym visits each week. Why? I’ll tell you.
~ I pay whether I go or not. Each month my gym deducts my monthly fee from a credit card. To cancel, I have to go to the gym. As long as I’m there, I might as well get in a little cardio. It’s a vicious circle.
~ Oreos. I love them. But I can’t very well eat them guilt-free unless I can at least try and work off the calories.
~ Gas is expensive. One of the cheapest gas stations near my house is next door to the gym. If I don’t visit, I have no reason to go over that way.
~ Sushi. My favorite sushi place is on my way home from the gym. If I call just before leaving, the timing is perfect to pick it up for dinner.
~ Sometimes I just want to get out of the house. But if I go to the gym, I can get out and still watch TV. The TVs are nicer at the gym, too.
~ Foursquare points. I’m leading in points because I have checked in at the gym so many weeks in a row. If I stop going now, my streak will end.
Don’t judge. Motivation and success mean different things to different people.
So, I think this begs the question…What motivates you?
