Healthy Holidays Challenge Update and the YMCA

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’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.  🙂

    We go the Y and like it a lot. It has a lot of things to do and I even go there for personal training to work on strength training. I like the atmosphere there and the staff are really nice.
