Today I joined the YMCA. Not just for the gym membership, but I actually enrolled in the weightloss class that they offer. It’s a little pricey, $220 for members (not including the membership) but I need some accountability and a group setting among other people sharing a similar goal sounds right up my alley.
The class meets two nights a week; Monday is class time where we learn about nutrition and healthy food stuff and Wednesday night is Bootcamp. Oorah!!!
In addition, we are expected to keep food diaries, adhere to a limited caloric intake, and exercise 150 minutes per week. Yep. This is EXACTLY what I need!
Tonight’s weigh-in showed what I already knew… I had gone WAY past what I thought I had gained. This past year has been brutal. Losing Mom, not smoking, working from home with a kid doing virtual school. It’s been rough. Too much wine and too much good food and absolutely no accountability.
Time for a change!
Lately I’ve been seeing more friends than I can count on Facebook and Instagram making healthy lifestyle changes and needless to say, it’s definitely influencing me. I’ve signed up for the Color Me Rad 5k on June 25th and the Color Vibe on August 6th. Hopefully I will be able to at least walk a 5k by then, if not jog.
