SuperWomen Boot Camp

I didn't do any kind of workout yesterday, so I have no report for you. I don't know why, but it seemed like an excellent idea at the time. Of course this means that I have no discretion and have to walk on lunch today, even if I really don't feel like it.

Plus dinner last night was so awful I don't even want to talk about it. So let's move on.

Last week when we were stuck in Funeral Preparation Hell, we ended up eating out for dinner... Um... OK, a lot. We had at least one meal at the Jimboy's* in Folsom and found this on their tray liner:


So I pulled up their website and did some looking into this. It looks like a lot of fun. You know. Relatively speaking.

Here, check out one of their videos:

If you go to their youtube page, you can see a lot more videos, and it really does seem like something that would be engaging and effective, which is what you look for, right?

But then I got to this page and had a mini heart attack.

One of the biggest problems I have is that there are so many things I want to try out, but prices like this just aren't in the budget. Don't get me wrong, the rates for this aren't even that high or particularly higher than other types of group fitness activities. It's just that I'm a broke ass state worker and there are months were making my gym payment is stretching the capacity of my budget.

So how do I make room for things like this, too?

*If you're not near a Jimboy's, I am truly sorry for you. There is nothing quite like it. So much so that I have an uncle who travels from England every couple of years just for Jimboy's. OK. And baseball.

That price thing is why I don't do yoga, even though I'd like to. Back home the local gym was $125 a month so I didn't go there and local classes back home and down here in SC are something like $250 - $300 for 6-8 sessions.

What about us broke ass people who want to get fit too? :(

I would check with the local yoga studios to see if they offer "Karma Yoga" or "Service Yoga". Basically you do some work in exchange for yoga. There's a studio here locally that offered a program where you do one 3 - 5 hour shift per week for a month, and you get unlimited yoga the next month. Which seems pretty reasonable, even considering their unlimited monthly rate is much less than that rate for 6 - 8 sessions! Wow!

Personally, I take my yoga at the gym, although I'd love to do it in an actual studio or a retreat. Of course, my monthly gym membership is right around half of yours! That is expensive!

It really, truly is. I haven't looked into gyms down here in SC yet. I have yet to find any! But my apartment complex has a basic gym residents can use for free, so I've been going over to use the elliptical when I can motivate myself. ;)
