01/03/2007: "BE IT RESOLVED..."
Driven by new-year induced self-loathing and a complete denial of my financial reality…I signed up for an expensive gym membership this afternoon. I have someone to play racquetball with a couple times a week and I can’t play without a membership.
I also signed up for a women’s soccer league. It’s the “Classic” league, often lovingly referred to as the “Old Women’s League”…which is fine by me, as I’ve never played before and I’m still not clear what the rules are.
I also still have a season pass at the Eaglecrest ski resort which I haven’t been taking full advantage of but intend to start again once we get some fresh snow.
My new strategy is to get fit doing fun stuff, rather than doing the treadmill or stationary bike…which are boring as hell. It’s kind of a Spare No Expense attempt at taking better care of myself, and what better time to start?
Having a clean pantry helps too; I can actually find things in there now and I want to start preparing my own lunches and cook more in general (which is healthier and tends to save $$$) so maybe things will even out a bit. The way I look at it, money spent today will pay dividends in the future when I have fewer trips to the doctor for couch-potato related health issues.
Ha ha, speaking of getting shape, some of you long-time readers may remember this photo of me from June 05...actually, a photo of my face on Jennifer Garner's body (from Alias) back when I was sooooo gung-ho about kickboxing. I will never look like her but I still find it inspirational!
