first step

I've been doing a lot of thinking about finding balance after my post yesterday. I decided that the first step is doing exercise I enjoy. When I thought back to what workouts I enjoyed most over the years I kept coming back to Group Power.
Back when I lost my weight the first time (2 years ago!) I was taking Group exercise classes 3+ days a week. I loved meeting my friend Christina at Island Gym and taking Power or Step or Kick! I reached out to Christina and she's still going to classes 3 or 4 days a week and was excited to hear I was thinking about coming back. She's on 6 week break though because her due date with baby #2 was yesterday!

A short chat via text with Christina was all I needed. After work I stopped at my current gym and cancelled my membership. They require 30 days notice so I will continue to work out there until the end of May but on June 1st I'm joining Island again! The best part is they're running a special, $99 for 6 months!


  1. Oh? $99 for 6 months? I'll have to talk to Rob about this...

  2. Way to go! The first step is sometimes the hardest. I wasn't out to be a class person, but four months into the year, I hate missing one. It makes working out SO MUCH easier when you enjoy what you're doing. I also love that all I have to do is show up, someone else plans the 1 hour workout for me. And with that, time to go change and head over to body pump. :)
