Yup….Must Be January!
New Year’s Resolutions to lose weight, get in better shape, blah blah blah. Don’t get me wrong, it is all wonderful! I commend you and I hope you stay with it.
But boy or boy it is hysterical come January to see the parking lot at my health club.
I work out at Life Time Fitness, an extremely large facility. The one by my home is one of their largest in the country I believe with something like 350,000 sq. ft or some crazy number. Plus four pools, spa, cafe, 4 water slides, outdoor umbrellas, outdoor grill, yoga room…..you get the picture.
So yesterday I go to work out about 8:30 AM (I don’t normally workout on Saturday unless I haven’t gotten there much during the week); and oops, forgot it was January! I had to park in the back forty literally!
The parking lot is huge as you can imagine with a facility that size and it was packed. I had to park at the furthest end instead of in my normal 4th or 5th row. I easily walked a block and a half from my car to the front door. Granted I am there for the exercise but when it is 12 degrees and even lower with the windchill it is BBbrrrrrr.
When I came out of the facility about 10:30 it was even worse! Cars were circling watching for people to leave because there weren’t any spaces, cars were parked along drive paths. It was crazy!
If the gym is part of your New Year’s Resolution stick with it! Make the rest of us walk a long distance the rest of the year, not just January!
