Y-M-C-A! come 'on...you know you wanna sing along:) my kids do. every day. they LOVE going there and in our few short weeks of being members, we really are more healthy. while sonny and i get a work out (good for oh-so-many reasons) the boys play in the kid zones full of fun activities and new friends. we often do this in the evening when we may be caught somewhere else a little less healthful (mcdonald's play land, movie theatre, etc) and a lot more expensive. ari started swimming lessons this week and can't say enough about how much fun he's having. granted, it's a lot of desperate doggie-paddling to save his life and even more time waiting at the wall, but he's learning, he's moving, he's not in front of the tv.
i know you've heard this same message a MILLION times, but i wanted you to hear it from me. the ultimate slug. i hate exercise. i love sitting. i love mcdonald's food. not any of their "healthy" options either. i like my cheesburgers flat and my fries greasy. i drink enough soda to keep coca-cola in business. and yes....i love the Y. the people are friendly and i'm inspired every time by people who are of all ages, all levels of fitness, just pluggin away knowing that moving their body is better than not movin it.
