Well, I did it. I signed up for the 12 Days of Fitness yesterday. The young girl that helpedme at the gym (where I signed up/get to work out for two weeks) was so friendly, nice and helpful. She didn’t laugh at me when I asked if there were showers available, she showed me the schedule of classes provided, and offered to help me figure out how to work the fitness equipment (which will save me from sure disaster in the future).
There is a one mile walk Monday night that kicks everything off. Provided I can cart along Riley in a stroller, I am going to go. In my packet, sent to me via email (aren’t we so modern and efficient!) I am given a chart to log my progress in the program as well as the 12 key components they want me partake in. Each sheet gives a brief explanation of the ideas and goals of each target, and lists some suggested activities, then it gives a little clip art holiday animal doing that activity. This very much appeals to my highly organized side. I like charts, logs, notes, and lists. Jordan says I make lists of the lists I need to make. (Not true).
These are the categories: Exercise, Nutrition, Family, Safety, Career (that ought to be interesting), Intellectual, Social, Emotional, Self-car, Financial, Cultural, and Conservation.
So wish me luck. The program starts Monday. I’m actually pretty excited about it (it must be all those lists!) I might even make it to one of those 5:30 a.m. yoga classes. My yoga mat has just been gathering dust in the corner… for the past four years.
