okay, so in the last blog I mentioned my preparation to doing the 21-day TotalFit Challenge with MrShutUpAndTrain. Well...that didn't work out, except for the prep day which allowed me to review my goals, which IS a great thing to do!
So what's going on for me now is that I'm trying to figure out if I want to join the YMCA or if I want to do the exercising on my own. With either one I need to be disciplined and discipline has NOT been my strong suit thus far. And well, that's one of my issues with paying membership, what if I don't go as much as I would like or need to see results. And then there is the fact that I have FREE ways of working out like my DVDs at home, cable with OnDemand Workouts, Walking & hiking on my own, the Cancer Center with qigong & ti chi & yoga but then again, the Y has Nia, Pilates...
Well, what are your thoughts SparkFriends? How do you all work out? Come on, don't be shy, spill the tea on how you stay fit please!!

This Sunday, instead of being at church I'm Sipping on Tea Since I'm under the weather
Yet I am laying here thinking about what my next FITNESS CHALLENGE should be.
Work on becoming a Fitness Instructor like Pilates, Active Adults, Nia, or an ethnic one like Masala Bhangra, Belly Dance, etc.? That way I can cheer others on!
Maybe I should take the year to train for a fitness competition for body building or bikini comp.? This challenge might actually take more than a year to fit into!
OR, Sign up for a marathon, like a really big popular one!?
Or how about I sign up to compete in a dance off of some kind? I do like those "Shall We Dance" films!
Perhaps I will find an environmental goal, like to climb or walk a historical monument?
Maybe train to get a degree of difficulty in a particular sport?
So many directions to go! I think I could use a little help!
