Gym closing again and I'm lowering my fitness goals to 20 minutes a day = 600 fitness min per month

Saturday, November 21, 2020

With the Coronavirus death climbing the Governor of Minnesota is closing down high risk places again, which includes gyms.

The online zumba classes which my zumba teachers at my gym taught online when the pandemic first started were free, but these teachers started charging for these classes ($3 per class) when the gym re-opened and decided not to return to the gym.

Even though I'm working now, I only work part-time so $3 a class per day is kinda steep for me. So I'm only going to do my Leslie Sansone DVDs or something on YouTube for my workouts a day so I will be limiting my workout goal to 20 minutes a day, which roughly is about 600 minutes per month. I don't think I need to do 1 hour per day like I was previously. I think that should be enough to keep me healthy!

My job by the way at TJ Maxx is still going awesome. I hope we stay open. I heard they did close down for a couple of weeks when the Pandemic first started, but my co-workers told me they were paid while it was closed. I feel very fortunate to be working for such a great company.

    Good for you for developing a plan right away for not being able to use the gym!

    Sounds like a good plan. And maybe you can occasionally treat yourself with a session! I'm so sorry that my gym doesn't offer anything online. I would definitely splurge on that if I could.
    Stay strong and healthy!

    I'm sorry that they are charging the $3 for the Zumba classes, And of course that is steep when you're working part time! ... I do the videos Of Leslie Sansone routinely And really like her. You probably know she has 1 mile videos or 2 miles or more but you can do even as little as10 minutes! I pull up online and there is so much to choose from. I'm also glad you are still working at TJ Maxx and I do hope their doors get to stay open! Best wishes! .......😊💕
