Today I went to Curves for the first time... by myself!
I've always been attracted to Curves for many reasons... a gym that's just for women, 30 minute workout, all laid out for you... but I've never really lived close to one before.
Now, we live really close to one! I had been thinking about it all summer but since we were on the go so much, I couldn't do anything about it. When we got home though, I looked online and found out that week's promotion was a free one week pass so I signed up for one!
Today I went in for the first time and I think I'm going to like it. I haven't committed to a membership yet, but I probably will. I had a really fun lady help me out and I had a good time. My aim is to go 5 days this week (to get into a M-F routine). It's a 1/2 hour walk one way so I'm actually getting a double work out with a hour walk everyday too!
I know that I'm not in a healthy state right now and I can't live like this forever so it's time to make some changes... especially after 2 months of traveling and vacation!
I probably have my hopes up too high as far as results go, but I figure that since I've never actually stuck to an exercise routine before (for longer than a week or 2... how sad!) I should see some significant changes... or at least feel them anyway, since exercise makes you feel better!
I'm also going to be more disciplined about what I eat/don't eat. I am a terrible "dieter" (considering I've never actually been on one!) and I have no discipline when it comes to sweet things and food I really like so I know I can do better. Little changes like not taking seconds and actually paying attention to when I'm hungry/full is where I'm going to start with for now (as well as adding more fruit/veggies into our meals).
Anyway, just thought I'd put this on my blog to add some accountability! Feel free to ask me how it's going... and offer tips as well! :) Anyone have any Curves success stories/experiences?
