Workouch. I mean out, work - out.

So, I have decided to take matters into my own hands. I am seriously out of shape and I have come to the conclusion that I MUST do something about it. Naturally, I joined a gym. (thank you Kasey!!)

Day 1. Spinning. How hard can riding a bike be, right? WRONG. I hurt in places I didn't know could hurt. I was 3 pedals away from jumping off that bike and strangling the instructor with my shoelaces. I truly believe the rest of the class would not have protested.

Day 2. Pilates. Ah yes, something calm and simple. I can balance my inner Chi or whatever. Stretch and relax. Not so much. The pain, excruciating. As long a I remain perfectly still, I am ok. The slightest movements only intensify the extreme tearing feeling in my abdomen.

Day 3. Kickboxing. Ok, so I recovered. I can totally to this. I have Billy Blanks Tai Bo at home. Oh yeah. Oh NO. My little powerhouse friend Maria was the instructor. I think GREAT! She'll take it easy on me. My word! She's motivated! She was awesome though. Even though I looked like a beached whale flapping around on the sand she still told me I did great! Thank you for encouraging me!

Tomorrow is day 4. I am terrified. I wonder what kind a self-induced pain I will put myself thru. Hmmmmm. I'll have to think on that one.

Well, I'm off to soak in a tub of Epsom's salt and then crawl into bed. These are the days I wish I had a mattress on the floor instead of a bed 10 feet off the ground!

7 things about me.

I was tagged by the Winberrys!

Ok here we g0. (Sorry, I don't know how to forward these things!)

1. I'm a sucker for Lifetime movies. (I know. pathetic!) Nothing better than a rainy day watching them!

2. I want to be a princess. (what girl doesn't!)

3. I always wanted to learn street magic. How cool would that be!

4. I'm a wannabe rock star. I totally wan to be rock star and learn the drums. Drummers are cool.

5. I have no idea what I'm doing. People seem to think I have it together. I'm pretty much wingin it on a daily basis.

6. I wish I was a finalist on dancing with the stars. I love to dance. My husband, not so much.

7. I want to be a leader. For all the right reasons. I know God has put me on this earth for reason. I want to figure it out and bring more souls to him

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning I'm completely nuts! I don't know how to forward this, so I can't tag anyone else.

Love you all!

Would you trust a Hobo?

So, Jeff and I are on our way to church and our normal banter ensues. We are carrying on and laughing hysterically. He then says " I don't trust people who don't laugh." I nod and agree, laughing until my gut hurts.
Then, I hear the questions of all questions from the back seat.
"Dad, would you trust a Hobo?? If he laughed???"
Hmmmmm. Good question. I'm sorry. I have no quip or smart mouthed reaction.
"Yeah Jeff. Would you?"
