365 Grateful Project

365 Grateful – Day 45

I’m grateful that I had the good sense to join up to a gym!  I joined up as a foundation member at my newly opened local Snap Fitness gym.  I’ve been going regularly and have so far had three sessions with a personal trainer – the lovely Sarah.  What I love about Snap Fitness is that there are NO CONTRACTS!  I also love that it is a small compact gym and is not the least bit intimidating.  What is really lovely is that when I walk in, I am greeted by my name.  They know who I am.  It is friendly and local and it feels right for me.

I devoted the most part of 2011 to my health and fitness and then in 2012 it all fell by the wayside.  I gained back some of the weight and my fitness dropped way off.  It feels good to be back into regular exercise.  I can certainly feel that my fitness is not where it was, but I know it will improve in time.  I am also very aware of the benefits of exercise for a woman in her 40’s – not just for fitness and weight loss but for muscle tone, increased metabolism, bone strength and the mind!  I am not an expert but I will be doing a blog post on this subject in the near future.

  1. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
