Welcome Melissa! I am also a 41 yr. old mother of 2, only my 2 are much younger, 8 & 10. I also work out at Lifestyles, Monroe St. I do a lot of the classes, especially Zumba. They really keep me motivated. If your still looking for a "workout buddy" send me an e-mail . . . I think it helps to have someone keeping you motivated. Again, welcome to the Toledo team!

Welcome Melissa. If you go to the Detroit/AW Trail Lifestyles, I recommend any class with Cory. She teaches Zumba on Thurs. 10am and Turbo Kick on Sat. 9am. I usually either go to that one or Franklin Park depending on the class and where I'm coming from (work or home). I like the classes because it's easier to stay focused and finish the class then when you are on the treadmill or elliptical and can quit at anytime.

Hi Melissa, I see you found the Toledo team. Glad you joined. I live in the Point Place area.
I know what you mean about having no social life. It has been that way for me for quite awhile. I work nights and cannot afford to go out. Just had to turn down, again, a evening with friends to see a local band. I have a mortgage pymt due and not much left after that with this payck. Trying to catch up on bills. And as usual an additional expense just cropped up with my car. It is always 1 step forward, 10 back for me. So I know what you mean about emotional eating. It is major stress!!
