Am I totally nuts to begin an exercise and wellness program at this time of the year? I think so, but I was not give a choice!! The YMCA called yesterday and asked if I could come in for an orientation today. I thought I could handle that. Today I filled out lots of paperwork and was introduced to the machines I will be using and given a tour of the new facility. I was told the dietitian would be calling to set up another appointment to develop my eating plan.
Then I was asked when would be a good time for me to come in tomorrow to meet with my personal trainer and begin the exercise program. Hey, wait a minute, I didn't want to actually start until January 2nd. They told me I would have to start tomorrow and that this is a good time to start so I won't gain weight over the holidays. What a bummer!! Half the fun of the holidays is packing on a couple extra pounds. Anyway, I'll be meeting with my personal trainer tomorrow and begin the exercise program. In order to stay in the program I have to agree to go in and exercise a minimum of three days a week, keep a journal which the dietitian will give me, and stay on the eating program. This may be difficult since I haven't finished my Christmas shopping. But, you know, seems like the more I have to do the more I get done. And, just think of all the energy I will have.
Do I have you convinced yet??? What matters is, do I have myself convinced!!!
Wish me luck.
