Get the gym membership but do not sign a long term contract until you know you will commit. Many gyms offer a discount if you sign up for a year or whatever. It isn't a discount if you end up paying for 9 months you don't use. (not that you will do this but many people do). Or the Y sounds like a deal if you are willing to make the drive or is that $44 a month?
somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
