1. I'm overweight, but I love food. (Going out to eat is my best thing!)
2. I'm overweight, but I hate workout out.
3. I'm need to work out, but who has time?
4. I need some new clothes, but I don't want to shop for a bigger size.
All reasons things pointed to GO! (to workout)
I asked my husband a few times if we could get a family membership to the Y. He said no, it's too expensive. I agree, it IS a lot of money, especially when my husband already has two gym memberships that are under $20/month. The Y is way higher than that for one person.
But the benefits outweigh the cost- they have a child care center and they have classes. I hate working out and need something that is going to smash all of my excuses to pieces.
So I did something for me, I bought myself a single membership and have been Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday.
I started off with cardio on the elliptical and failed out after 10 minutes, I couldn't make it. Then I finished up riding the bike for 20.
Monday, I took a BodyPump Class. (a good torture)
Yesterday, we did Aqua Burn. (#meh)
I have a friend who has become a gym rat and thankfully, she encourages me and works out with me. If it weren't for her, I'd probably not have made it Monday and Tuesday- there was too much drama with B getting a stomach virus and all. (Gym buddies are essential.)
I'm determined to stick with it this time. I need to be the best me for LaToya.... for my kids who look up to me, for the girl power.
You're not seeing things, I have a new hair color.
