A few days after I joined, a Diverticulitis attack but me on my butt for 2 weeks. That is part of the reason I need this. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I still love my little gym, but a close friend has recently paid for a month at 24 Hour Fitness for me and I am for sure enjoying the extra amenities. I will probably return to my gym once this month is up, though, because I truly cannot afford the big gym fees and I really love the family feel there.
I have learned two things:
1. Working Out Feels Great
I love the way I feel after a workout. Feel like I've done something, I've worked hard, and I made a difference in my life. It's a very accomplished feeling. I love it!!
2. Eating Healthy Is A Little More Expensive
It's a little sad to me that I can get a nasty, greasy cheeseburger for $1, but a crisp, healthy salad costs $6. One thing I love, Walmart's Great Value brand Greek Nonfat Yogurt. It's just as good as name brand, for half the price and oh, so yummy!!
I have also set a goal. Not a weight goal, because I have determined that the number on the scale is not what is important. I will measure my progress by strength gains, feeling healthy, and liking the way I look. So this is my goal
