Coincidence? I think not!

January 10, 2011

Have you ever heard the expression "First time is an accident, second time is a coincidence, third time is on purpose?" If you haven't, now you have.  I'm a firm believer of this idea and have seen it in action just this weekend.  Friday night I made the mistake of hopping on a scale while at a friend's.  Saturday, while searching for the mini humidifier for Gabe's room (he's been really sick), I found a practically brand-new gym bag buried in the bottom of the closet.  Today, while at the mall on errands, I ran into four women I know from school who were out buying running shoes to hit the gym with.  We chatted and the one I know best asked me if I wanted to join them. 

Is this a coincidence?  I think not.  It's not looking like I can rejoin bellydance like I wanted (I dont' have 100$ handy right now and wont till late next week) and sitting around on my ass at my computer desk all the time is taking a toll; not just the unpleasant (for me) number on the scale, but in how actually healthy I am.  So I'm going to the gym on Wednesday afternoon.  I am a fundamentally lazy person, I've always been kinda squishy and soft.  Apple shape? I haz it.  I'm looooow maintenance.  When I think of owning a dog, I want one that doesn't demand I take it for walks.  Are you getting the picture?  So me saying I'm actually going to the gym, with people, is a Big Deal.  We'll see how this goes.
