Me yesterday trying to quit the gym.

In an effort to budget and pay off my debt, I decided it was time to let go of my $20-per-month membership at my local big box gym. Even though I have my own little studio with a weight bench, kettlebells, resistance bands and dumbbells and my own equipment at home, I thought it was worth it to keep the membership “just in case” I wanted to run on a treadmill, as it was such a cheap membership rate and I knew their prices would increase soon. Considering I haven’t stepped foot in that gym in a year and a half, I knew it was time for me to cancel my membership.

But I was nervous about it.

Well, that actually happens. (more…)
