It's true...

We have joined a gym. For me, this is the very first time I have ever joined a gym and I must admit, I love it!! We joined the "Y". It is actually very cheap for a whole family to join. I know some of you must be thinking, "what, the first time you have ever joined a gym?" Well, I must admit prior to kids and my mid 30's I was very thin. I never watched anything I ate and was always a "twig". Well, unfortunately age and gravity have become my new best friends and I don't like them :P. To be honest, I also want to be a better steward of the body God has blessed me with and be able to use it for His glory.
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? -- 1 Corinthians 3:16

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. -- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I have done Zumba (which I love), water aerobics (another love), and the elliptical machines and treadmills, as well as the weight room. What's even more wonderful is that Dave and I workout together which is a whole lot of fun. Also, since the "Y" is very family friendly, they even have family Zumba one night a week and we all got to try it last week. I do think that it might only be a special time for Kira and me but I was very proud of my boys for stepping out of their comfort zone and doing it.
So send me some well wishes and healthy thoughts. I could really use them :)
