If I Had a Million Dollars
My gym membership runs out in less than a week. Gulp.
There is really no other gym in my area, for the time being (there's 2 being built as I speak in the next town over), that I want to join- for various reasons.
I need to move on a daily basis. I need to work out. I know this. It's getting cold and I have a history of being inactive during the winter months. This leads to sadness and depression which leads to weight gain. But it's getting harder to justify keeping up a membership when I'm not happy there and nothing is going to change with them.
So, I think I'm in the market for a spin bike. It's the one thing in the gym that makes me happy, more than anything else ever. When I'm on the bike I feel free and strong, energized and light. I'm exhausted and wired all at once at the end of each class.
So I did some online research. The bike I want is on ebay right now for $480- less than half what a one year membership to my gym costs (with babysitting). What kills me is the shipping- $150. So I looked where it's coming from- yeah, right here in good old CT, in a town about an hour from me. Wowza. That's a lot of shipping.
Should I email them and ask for a change in the shipping? Or if I could pick it up at their shop?
If I had a million dollars I wouldn't care about $150 bucks, but right now it seems like I could buy so much yarn with that cash, right? Haha! (Plus, with all that money I could get a really cute spin coach to come to my house and help me train. Right?)
ETA- I emailed, and since it's dropped shipped from the manufacturer, there's nothing they can do about shipping. Bummer.
