YMCA

Soooo, Lars and I went to check out our local YMCA. It made me go crazy! I wanted to jump in and work out... who knew I'd be so motivated. It's rather expensive for a family membership, but it includes soooo much! I think the thing that kills us is the sign-up fee. Oi! It's sooo much money. We're trying to make sure to budget and sacrifice some things so we can promote a healthy lifestyle for our children (well, when we have more than just 'child'). I really want to make sure to be in shape to keep up with my family. Jonathan's also old enough and ready to be left alone with a sitter for a couple hours most days, so I'm climbing the walls!

I'm not one of those people who can just work out because I like it or I need to. I've always had some sort of dance or aerobics class to keep me in line. I need structure in my work outs. Thanks to my awesome sister-in-law, I've been bitten hard by the motivation bug and I want to spend my time getting fit, much like her. She's worked sooooo hard and it really shows. I'm very impressed by her dedication.

Here's hoping we can get in. If we can, then I'll most likely start a weight loss blog. YIKES!!

Jaden and I just signed up for parent child aquatic class at our local recreation center. Why doesn't Blackfoot have a rec center? I suppose there are some advantages to living in the city. Good luck with your work outs.
