I joined the Y, which has been a really fun thing for me to do every morning, getting out of the house, doing some socializing, watching E! News, and getting my sweat on.
Ryan has this “corporate members” deal that gives us 6 sessions with a wellness coach. I went in for my first session last week and we did all of the BMI, Weight, Flexibility, Upper Body Strength, and Basil Metabolic Rate testing. Basically, I discovered that I am pretty close to half made out of bones and organs and half made out of fat. “But that’s why you’re here, right?” said my wellness coach excitedly. “Yes, that is exactly why I am here!” I replied.
I got average scores across the board, except for flexibility…I did above average on that one :o) Thank you yoga class!
Then, as an incentive (I LOVE INCENTIVES) at the end of each session I get a prize! My first prize was a pedometer. I wore it the next day for a few hours while I ran my errands. The only problem is that everyone can hear this “tick, tick tick” sound coming from me with every step. I pretty much sound like a walking time bomb and was quite surprized that I didn’t get kicked out of the store for being a potential hazzard to everyone around me.
