I have for years told myself I do not need the gym and can workout at home. I will always start off with well intentions but this house does not do it for me. I will still do some home workouts but will be using the gym to kickstart my fitness. It has a pool and not full of people I know. I only know of two friends who are members, one of which joined with me today. My sacrifice I guess will be no lunch dates. Just have lunch at home so I can afford my membership. I will even forego a high end makeup purchase to ensure membership is continuous. 

One of the great things about this gym is that you do not have to sign up for twelve months and can cancel after a 3 months notice period. This suits me just fine as should I start a new job and my schedule changes I will not be tied into something that I cannot fully partake in.

Next I will take swimming lessons followed by my children getting lessons. Though I will need to convince their dad that he will need to attend their swimming sessions. One more thing I need a swimsuit, tankini, fatkini, sports bra etc. Not sure what a basic gym kit is. So if you have any suggestions please let me know.
