I gained over 35lbs when my grandmother died. I chose to grieve with the help of food. Lots and lots of delicious food. It was my way to cope since I was very close to her.
Now with the support of my guy and encouragement of my dear friends, I’m getting my body back. Albeit slowly.The first step was heading to the Signature Gym of the Crunch Gym in my neighborhood because they promised #NoJudgments while I’m on my weight loss journey. I’m all for positive help like that! Thanks #CrunchGymAs time went by the added weight started to make me feel less like myself and more tired than anything. And pretty much nothing in my closet fit me.
So I tried out the BODYSHRED — any Jillian Michaels fans? — and Ass n Abs class.
I consider myself at a beginner level when it comes to fitness classes so both classes were perfect because I had a lot to learn. I knew if I kept taking them I would eventually be able to fully participate at the same level as everyone else in the class.
Just Salad ended the classes with sample Avocado Dreamsicle smoothies from their Smoothie Bar. I’ve had it twice since. I never thought I would love a drink made from avocado, spinach, agave, coconut milk, orange juice and lemon but I do.Crunch Gym provided me with a complimentary workout pass for participating in the classes. I plan on putting it to use at the location closest to me.
