We all know that exercise is good for us. And we all know how easy it can be to put off. As single moms, we have the perfect built-in excuse: I have no one to watch my child while I go to the gym. This is a perfectly legitimate excuse, and one that I’ve used myself without any guilt at all. But then I realized that if I have a heart attack or some fatal disease due to lack of exercise and proper care of my body, my daughter will be without me. I certainly couldn’t have that, so I went in search of a solution. I found it in the YMCA.
