Plans for Fitness

Okay, so on Friday evening I went to my friend MangyCat's house. (I actually go there a lot cause she's so awesome!) I had dinner and we went to the Good Friday service at her church. That was really cool. We sang worship songs and had some scripture reading, but then we did something different. There were several stations set about the room for people to reflect on the death and Resurrection of Jesus in a more personal way. You could take communion, nail your name to a cross, read about the seven last phrases of Jesus, and an art room where you could draw or sculpt about what Jesus's death and Resurrection meant to yourself. It was very unique.

And your thinking, what does this have to do with fitness....

Well, I'm coming to that. After the service and after we got her kids in bed, we decided to watch 10th Kingdom together. (5 hours of a totally cool movie, with a guy named really made me want a 'wolf' in my life...he was plain wonderful.) MangyCat ended up going to bed, then after the movie, about 2:30 a.m., I went to sleep on the foot-on.

In the morning, MangyCat took me to 24 Hour Fitness. It was a day that members could bring a friend for free. She's a member and I was the friend. So we did a half hour on the elliptical, then we swam some laps, and lastly sat in the hot tub for a few minutes. Then we showered and went home. But before we left, I talked to one of the employees at 24 and I got myself a membership!


It was $30 cheaper then if I had gotten the membership any other day, there was a deal going on only Sat, and I am so glad I got it! Now I can work out with more enthusiasm, and with a lot more equipment. I can swim (which I adore!), run, lift weights, shoot hoops, and much more. And the people there are so nice and encouraging. I'm very grateful that God provided the finances for me to be better about taking care of myself.

On a side note, Kale is 100% better. Yippee! Thank you for your prayers!
