Quick Takes from Day 1 at the YMCA

I joined the YMCA today.

As an accidental stay-at-home wife, I spend too much time at home. Leaving seems to require money, so some days I just don't go anywhere. Boring.

I hate working out, but I need to. My muscles are officially MIA, and my heart and lungs forgot what cardio exercise involves. Also, my husband and I are racing to a six-pack. Well, he's racing; I haven't actually started yet. Oops.

Anyway, I joined the YMCA today. Hopefully, the classes will be so fun that I forget the working out part of them. Or maybe I will be so inspired by the athletic people that I want to be one of them.

I'm about to get fit, y'all. At least, that's the goal.

Here are a few quick takes from my first day:
  • I may not be able to walk tomorrow. #ouch
  • Some group classes may be good, but others are mediocre or worse. #nottryingthatoneagain
  • Per the multiple tvs in the workout room, soap opera characters spend way more time in bed and inadequately dressed than normal people. #thanksforthat #getajob #normalpeoplewearclothes 
So that was my first day at the YMCA. Now, I'm going to just sit here for a while. A long while.

What's your favorite way to get or stay fit? Do you have a favorite group fitness class?
