I got to the gym at a spry 4:55, a few minutes before they actually open. Usually an employee is already there and a few early birds are hitting the machines pretty hard. Today it was completely dark and there were a few cars with people waiting in the parking lot. Well, I too waited and waited and waited.
Finally at about 5:10 I got out of the car and called the posted number (you know the one to call in the unfortunate event that the gym isn't opened at 5) and they said they would get someone out there soon. I waited for about 5 mins, and figured I was only wasting my time. Who knows when someone would acutally get there to open the doors to Broadmoor Fitness.
So my last ditch effort to shed some pounds before my weigh in today was thwarted. But rather than be discouraged I came home and popped in a pilates tape I haven't seen for a few years. While it wasn't the treadmill/bike combo I have been trying to sport it was probably better than going back to bed.
The upside of this sob story is that I weighed in 5 lbs lighter than last week. I guess all those nights of being hungry might be paying off. Only 15 more weeks to go!! I think I can do it.
