Is it a sign from God?

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I've had YMCA membership for about eight years. But it's been about three or four years since I actually even worked out there. I know shame on me for paying and not going. But every time I think about canceling my membership, I just can't do. I just have to hold onto hope that I'll start going. I love going to the Y but I've found it hard to make the time. I have young children whom I homeschool. We tried going in the morning. But my oldest son ended up being the oldest kid in the child watch. And the worker constantly got onto him. He wasn't doing anything wrong. She was just overly concerned. Like he would be riding the riding toy and she would say don't go to fast you might hurt someone. Of course he never ever did. Also it was hard because we have to be careful to get the school work done. In the evening time I found myself to exhausted and busy with the evening responsibilities to be able to go consistently. Since starting all over, I've decided I don't want to be bound to gym and have been working out at home. But for the last two weeks, I've been thinking about going back to the Y. Not so that I could make it part of my exercise routine, but sort of as an extension. My kids are a little older now and I think it would be fun to take them. We could actually do some things together especially with my oldest child. But I've kind of been stalling. Well for one thing I thought, I don't even know where my membership card is. I didn't even try to look for it. Well my husband and I have been trying to go through some boxes that have been in the garage since we moved into our house three years ago. Low and behold while going through the box, guess what he finds. Ya, my membership card. So then I was wondering if it was a sign from God. Well I wasn't ready to jump at go to the Y just yet. But then I got to talking to a friend of mine from the homeschool co-op and come to find out her family just recently started going to the Y. She was like we need to go together sometimes. Her kids and my kids get along good too. So now I'm all excited. In the past when I went I was on my own alone. And now I have a friend to work out with. Even if we can only go once a week this makes me very happy.

    That would be awesome. I say definitely give it a go. You might find something you really enjoy and it might become a "more than once a week" thing.

    Have fun with it!

    I take my nephews and my son with me to the Y. We go swimming. We have a blast.

    Awesome! It is a precious gift to get to go to the Y with your kid's. It is really not a affordable option for me now. No matter if I used it or not. Take advantage of being able to go. Your kids will love it emoticon
