The Hubby & I are Challengers in the Countdown to Change with YouFit

YOu fit

For the first time ever, my husband and I joined a gym. For years, we worked out at home. Sometimes together, many times alone. The together workouts were fun, except when he became Mr. Know-it-all, with all the added workout advice. Men!

What has always been great is that we both love to be healthy and enjoy the benefits & results that exercise can give you.

I joined YouFit earlier this month & with my Lime Membership, I get to bring my husband with me every time I come. Recently, in addition to working out to stay fit – we joined the YouFit Countdown to Change Challenge – 60 Days to a Slimmer, Healthier You.

So, how do you win? Members with the highest % of weight loss wins!

This is the thing, my goal is to gain 5-7 pounds of muscle. So, I am wondering can I win? The great thing is, there are also individual winners at each gym. This means that I can still win at my local gym & my body will still be transformed so, it’s a win-win!

This past Friday, my husband and I weighted in. We do our midway check-in the 3rd week in October & final check in November 21st. Check back with me as we go hard in this challenge the next 2 months.

Funny story (not for me):

Friday after the weigh in, we stayed and worked out. I did some legs lifts with weights & had did a similar exercise the day before in a body sculpting class.

Well, Friday night we went to Disney’s Magic Kingdom and walked, walked & did more walking. My legs started to hurt towards the end of the night and I felt a leg cramp coming on.

What was different, is that the tingly feeling was coming from the front of my leg.

Shortly after we got in our vehicle, I got a leg cramp in the FRONT of both of my legs at the same time. Talk about SCREAMING FOR HELP!! I had never experienced such pain! I told my husband to take me to the hospital.

He didn’t. He kept driving and said, “Drink some water now & when we get home, drink a spoonful of Apple Cider Vinegar!” Uuugggh MEN! He did rub my legs later.

My Lesson: STRETCH GOOD & don’t walk at Disney after doing left lifts two days in a row!
