  • The shred is pretty easy. I do have to take some breaks while doing it but I was able to complete it today.

    • I need a little help with something. I'm trying to decide if I should get a membership at a gym in town ($30/month), the Y ($44 individual, $75 family) which is a 15-20 minute drive from home or just continue to workout at home in cramped quarters and get trampled on by people and dogs and purchase equipment as needed? Thoughts, advice?

      • Get the gym membership but do not sign a long term contract until you know you will commit. Many gyms offer a discount if you sign up for a year or whatever. It isn't a discount if you end up paying for 9 months you don't use. (not that you will do this but many people do). Or the Y sounds like a deal if you are willing to make the drive or is that $44 a month?

        • I like my local gym for getting to know my neighbors. Do they both have pool facilities?

          • This is how hole in the wall the local gym is. It's located in an old $.05 and dime store. The Y is $44/month for an individual.

            • If they'll let you, try one month at one place and one month at the other, see which one works best.
              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                • Yeah, maybe. IDK. The Y is about 5-8 minutes from work and they have a pool, the place in town has cardio machines and weights, that's it.

                    I like Naiad's suggestion, but really the best gym/value is the one you will use. The Y is more expensive but if you can/will stop there on the way to/from work then it is great. If the gym in town is located conveniently enough that you will go then perhaps that is a better option due to the price. Of course, if you plan to swim then the place in town would be useless.

                    When I lost weight before joining the Army a major part of it was the gym. I found one (a tiny, small, ugly one) which was between the school and home. It had some weights and maybe 6 cardio machines. It was also $10 a month. Given the cheap price and the fact I had no excuse not to go (I had to drive right past it) it worked well for me. If I go home first I can find 1000 excuses not to go back out to the gym. So for me location is the key. It is a matter of evaluating what is most important for you.

                      I keep thinking the one in town may be winning. There is hardly anyone there and its open 24/7. Plus, when the bankruptcy is dismissed this October, I can afford something more (especially with Clint getting a raise of $5/hr more).

                      • Jillian is horrible! She was kicking people out of the gym on the first training session on TBL because they were falling off the treadmill. She scares me.

                        • Geo if you can fit it in, I say join a gym, just so you have time to yourself, could help stress levels?
                          The one that is open 24/7 might be better so you can go whenever. Mine is a 24/7, not that I am going right now LOL

                            I've never watched that show and have no desire to.

                            • It makes me cry all the time. Due to knowing how the contestants feel. But I do not agree with their methods. But they have Bob, who does CrossFit, which is cool. Hoping he tells them to eat paleo, but I doubt it
                              I don't know why I do watch it, I get down because some of the woman weigh less than me, but I look at them and think no way, even though I know I am huge. Argh!
                              So glad your daughters are getting on board with this

                              • Just my oldest daughter is into it. My other 2 are at normal weights. Tristan(middle) did like the cream cheese clouds that I made for a fat bomb. I need to find more and keep them on hand. I'm going to a bridal show Sunday so need some help on foods to take. I'm making them eat the foods that I eat at dinner. Caitlyn(oldest) hates chicken, doesn't like broth and a few other things but I told her that she has to have the broth. There is no work around for it.
