30 minutes, three times a week? That’s something I can do! I decided to take the plunge and sign up for a curves membership. As any mom will tell you, it is not easy to set aside personal time, but I decided it was necessary. I need some me time, and I want to put it to good use. With the hubby on board…and my training sessions out of the way, I’m on track and loving it.

Being an evening person, and not by any stretch of the imagination a morning person, I’ve opted to do my workouts in the evenings after Jer gets home and can watch the kids. I love that curves is women only…I don’t feel so self conscious when things…jiggle. Can I feel the burn? Oh yes. Even with just 30 minutes, I feel tired and sweaty but very proud of myself at the end of each session. That first one was a killer though…I was very happy to take a nice warm bath and relax those screaming muscles that first night!

I also enjoy the atmosphere at my local curves, the women are nice, and chatter about everyday things like washing machines and kids as they work out. The age range varies, but no kids are allowed so I can relax and just be one of the girls.

It’s too soon to tell if I’ve lost weight, but overall, after just a few workouts, I feel healthier and happier – which is my goal in the first place! So no matter what the scale says at the end of the month, I feel like I’ve accomplished something already.
