Oh brother...

Dear Gym,

Hey...it's me Jones. We haven't been on the best of terms lately. I know that I haven't called and have been ignoring you but I've been in a funk. I keep thinking about my best friend's wedding and the dress I'm wearing and how I'm going to look hella-chunk and I'm just overwhelmed. Because of that looming thought of looking 20 lbs lighter I eat massive quantities to sabotage my plan and end up looking like Gilbert Grape's mom.

I give myself a goal every week to stay away from all fried foods. After about 3 days I start getting a little Tom Seizmore-ish from Sober House and just break down and eat like waffle fries or an egg roll. I've given myself goals to cook...and I do it one day and feel so accomplished and just tucker out for the rest of the week. It's like I have zero will power and because of that I lack the motivation I was developing to attend your facilities.

You (Gym) are like the Dr. Drew for me, except less attractive and more smelly, and I need to figure out how to break out from this rut. I've started reading this blog In It To Gym It (recommended by my friend Robyn who also has a great blog) and it's comforting to know that I'm not the only one that struggles.

I did receive a call from my Gym Boyfriend yesterday. And by call I mean he called because I'm pretty sure it's mandated by Lifetime Fitness to call all members they signed up who haven't shown up in like a month. But he did say I could talk to him personally (which I took to mean make out with by the treadmill) whenever I needed to. He also called me "Ash" when he said good-bye so I've set our wedding date and have the details already in place. Perhaps that is jumping the gun...but I mean you can't fight a love like ours.

With all this frustration and that boost from GB (Gym Boyfriend) yesterday I think that the only way to overcome this funk is to return to your open arms again Gym.

Don't expect me to be in a good mood.

Love,

Jones

  2. I joined a gym that was on my direct route home from work. The goal in that was to have the gym call out to me and I would feel guilty that I passed it and go on in. Now it is more like...ha ha ha catch ya never sucka! But sometimes I go because Matt Gilbert works there and he comes to talk to me when I am working out. It keeps me updated on my Phi Tau gossip.

  4. The ministry assumes no obligation to create, as it has not been the institution that conducted the investigation,
    while IPB argues which they don't have any legal basis to create its research findings on the public payday loans no credit check with this choice, a borrower can borrow anything involving 5000-75000.
