Well, this week hasn't been the picture of "healthy" unless you count the emotional health that has been strengthened by time spent with family and preparing and enjoying a nice holiday. If you judge my health by all that, then it has been a wonderful week for me! I'm counting that as a plus and staying good with that for an update.
However, I've enjoyed enough treats that I quite honestly am beginning to get sick of them. Isn't that funny? It's true. My poor body is ready for exercise and healthier food choices.
So, that's why I was super excited when my husband agreed to an errand today... We signed up for a membership at our local YMCA.
|My son had to add his thumbs up of approval and excitement at having a gym membership again.|
We looked into gyms and thought about the Y when we moved here, but with other financial priorities we decided to put it off. I looked more into the YMCA and then recently saw they had a special dubbed "Play Now, Pay Later" special for December which waived the application fee and started monthly payments in January.
After a few months of my husband working at the new practice we figured it was better for our budget to do a membership to the YMCA for the whole family than pay double the monthly payment for only the two of us to go to a larger, fancier gym. The YMCA offers we really need to stay active and bonus..it's only 5 minutes from my house.
While we are all excited to have a gym to go to I'm super thrilled to go to fitness classes again!! They offer classes I love and at a time of day that fits well in my schedule. I told my husband I woke up so excited this morning just thinking about it.
So...Monday morning I will be going to the gym -- one week ahead of the New Year's crowd. :)
