My sister approached me a few weeks ago about possibly joining a gym with her. I told her I would love to. She signed up at Bellingham Fitness this week because her friends from work go there and also because of the great deal they have going right now, a two for one membership. Basically my sister signs up for a regular membership and gets to have a friend sign up for free. What we are going to do is just split the price of the one membership so it ends up being half off for the both of us. Today was the first day we went together. It was so much fun! We started by doing 30 min on the treadmill. Then we went to the weights and did some circuit training for 10-20 minutes. Then we went back to the treadmills for another 15 min and then ended with some stretching. I really loved it and going with someone else is great. It was a great place to just chat with my sis who I don’t get to see as often as I would like to.

Last night I started my period. (yuck!) I was cramping so bad I couldn’t get to sleep. I cramped badly all day today. I was surprised that working out at the gym actually made the cramps less noticeable and it helped my mood. I felt great! I will have to remember that for next month. I do hope though that my period won’t effect my weigh in on Friday. Hopefully my period will all be gone by then along with all the bloating associated with it.

I’m crossing my fingers.
