As previously noted, my food "plan" for my 20in20 challenge is really just a place between all or nothing where I feel I can safely aspire to. Same goes for my exercise "plan". However, I do have some MAJOR motivation.

The gym we are joining as a family includes childcare.

Let me say that again.

The gym we are joining as a family. includes. childcare.

For up to two hours a day per person (meaning I can take Little G for two hours and then my husband can take him later for another two hours).

This means when Little G is being a total pest (hard to believe, I know, what with all the dimply goodness)I can put him in the car and in less than 10 minutes hand him over to SOMEONE ELSE!!

Also included in the membership: a personal trainer for eight sessions and then the same personal trainer once a month.

The gym has so many really cool features included in the membership (although some you pay extra for like tennis lessons and karate classes) like a slew of classes during the day for us stay-at-home-mommy types, rock climbing, salt water filtered pools, yoga, Pilate's, spinning, weight training, know...your basic gym well as two incredibly nice women's locker rooms with hair dryers and towels and beautiful wood and marble lockers; plus a cafe with healthy food and Internet! I seriously may never leave!!

So my "plan" for exercise is to make going to the gym part of our everyday schedule. Can you imagine...enough time away from Little G every day to not only take a class or meet with a trainer...but to also TAKE A SHOWER?? AND DRY MY HAIR?? I have never, ever, ever, ever, ever been so motivated to go to the gym!!

Let's just hope it sticks!


  1. That sounds awesome! I'm excited for you.

  2. Aaaaaaahhhhh so jealous!!! I've never belonged to a gym but hit on the grand idea of gym childcare a few months ago. After MUCH research, I only found one or two in this area that offer it. And member reviews all seem to agree that the actual childcare is pretty awful. So, back to my couch and dreaming of someday getting in shape ... if/when I ever find time away from the baby.

    Good luck with your own fabulous plan!
