I did this a few years ago and it was great. Of course, it was 3 months free at Bally Total Fitness and now it's just 1 month. But one month is better than none and then they usually give you an actually good offer if it works for you and you want to join. (I married a member and we're planning to go there later to swim) They have diet and exercise plans and other cool things. You can chart your current and goal weight, BMI, and waist/hip ratio.
My goal is to lose 15 pounds in 2 months. Do you think I can do it? Do I want to do it? Do I want people to stop asking me if I'm pregnant?
So far, this week, I ran 20 minutes yesterday and swam 35 minutes today. I need to be better about eating breakfast while I'm on vacation and when I go back to school next week. I snack less (and I'm less nasty) when I eat a big, healthy, protein-packed breakfast. Ryan wants to work out more often, too. I just got to where I came home from school and parked on the couch or even napped in bed. Must be better about that.
