Back to Y.

It’s been a while. With a recent relocation for our family, the holidays, new schools and a dozen other excuses, I haven’t exercised in about 4 weeks. For most that isn’t too bad, but for me that is an eternity. Whether it’s a spinning class, pilates, weight training or power yoga, in my normal routine I usually do at least one, and sometimes 2, 5 days a week. So, as I said, it’s been a while. But today I got back to the Y. My home away from home, and really the only viable exercise option of a Mom with young children.

Why the Y? Simply a loving environment, infused with God’s message of love, and the all important childcare. It is included in a family membership. It’s the most amazing combination that will feed your heart, mind and body. Time for yourself to focus, time for the kids to play, and time to make that new years goal actually attainable.

As this new year begins, I encourage all you moms out there to get your tush to your local YMCA. You can bring your kids, and even enroll them in basketball or tumble classes while you find your inner peace and waist line in a yoga class. Just go, and go often.
