So my gym that I was going to closed down. I was pretty bummed about it as I grew close to some of the gals there, but without missing a beat I'm trying out a new gym. I got a free week this week and went Monday to do the cardio machines, Tuesday I did the Bodypump class, Wednesday I did a Step class and Today I can barely move. I aint goin' no where!! I woke up yesterday really really sore but today I am wondering what muscles I had been working the whole year I was at the other gym, because I'm pretty sure it wasn't the ones that I've recently discovered. Can you say ouch! When did this happen? I don't think I like getting older. When I was in my 20's I could do this sort of thing all day long and my muscles would just laugh at this kind of stuff. Now their screaming! Stop! No! Please, no more! We surrender! It's sad isn't it? Oh well I guess it's true what they say, no pain no gain! The gym I used to go to was 4 miles away. Now get this, this gym is a 1/2 a mile away. Now there are pros and cons to this. One pro is that it will greatly save on gas. One con is that....well.....uh......it's close enough to WALK! So the pressure is on. Do I sadly drive .50 miles or actually walk it? I'm sure I will walk it sometimes when the weather is absolutely perfect. LOL. But this gym is right in the Wal-Mart shopping center so what if I had to get something, you know? I wouldn't want to CARRY it .50 miles. Right? RIGHT?
You can thank my sore muscles for this post today as I could not think of much else. Now go read Laura Lee's blog or Laurie Ann's or Debra's blog or really anyone on my side bar. Most all of them will challenge your thoughts in some way. So if your brain is feeling kind of mushy maybe you should bee-line it to a more stimulating post! I may even have one or two in my archives. Ha! Ha! Okay I admit it, I just enjoy making you all smile.
Maybe I should rename my blog Mushy Musings! LOL.
I love you my dear friends who are so faithful to fuel this fire. So it's kind of your fault. You keep coming back!! Hee! Hee!
BIG Hugs!


  1. Kimmy,

    Oh my sweet friend...I got on my stair climber yesterday and was screaming after 5 minutes! lol

    And I run up and down stairs in my house all day long! what gives? lol

    Hey, I listed the Charlotte Mason book and your new meme on my sidebar...what do I win? lol Just kidding..did I do it right? I seriously need to come to your house for a day of computer 101 so my blog will be fabulous! And we can get Starbucks *wink wink

    OK, I better go comments somewhere else or all of your room will be gone. I'm missin ya..can you tell?

    Hugs to you today, my sweet friend.
    Oh yea..to answer your question...Jay and I celebrate our 17th anniversary on Feb 1 and I turn another year older on Feb 2 (sigh). When is your anniversary? and how long?

    OK, I'm really stopping now..I guess we should go back to emailing! lol

    Love ya, my friend.

  2. oh my goodness! You are so funny. I think that I would drive because I would embarras myself by crawling all the way home. Keep up the good work!

  3. Good luck with the working out and walking to the workout, oh, my!! I so need to be doing this. I think when hubby goes to Iraq this year, I will join a gym. The gym is 20 minutes away from me. So it's not a convenience.

  4. LOL, you're too cute!!

    That's how I would justify not having to walk!!

  5. OK, I wish I had only 15 pounds to lose,I need more like 30.

    Getting older is tough!

    My body screams.....Get Back on the Couch!

    The gym I attend is in my house and I still can't get there.
    May if there was a fee there would be more insentive.

  6. Oh my goodness, YOU are a HOOT! lol.

    Definitely voting for you to drive. What if you twisted an ankle, or worse yet you were starving and just had to head straight to a drive thru or something? They won't let walkers thru the drive-thru. Yup, drive. I started working out at the Y recently, and I am FEELING THE PAIN, sista! Bad!

    Love you!

  7. My work out is in the deep end of the Y swimming pool. I was there at 7:00 A.M. this morning. My husband says I go play. Maybe he is correct because I definely do not feel any pain after wards.

  8. Ouch! Oh know that feeling all so well. Hmmm, well maybe not walk since it is shared with Wal-Mart, but...hee hee, you can always ride a bike and attach a basket. ;) I know, keep the comments like that to myself.

    Good luck with your work outs. But hey, take it easy on them poor muscles. Thanks for the giggles Kim. Always enjoy visiting your blog.

  9. LOL Kim! You are too funny! :)
    Ok, so far I have 3 posts scheduled for the Charlotte Mason "week". I am so excited!!! All I have left to do is compile our book list. This is going to be a wonderful time of sharing and I know it will bless many mothers, including myself. Thanks for doing this!

  10. Oh, how I love you, Kimmy! You are too funny, and too sweet! I'm glad you found a closer gym and that you're really enjoying it. Thank you for the honorable mention, LOL! My post today is on prayer.

  11. And I will keep coming back again and again - LOL!!

    I am sorry for your muscle pain, my friend. I do think you should drive - what if a huge rainstorm came up while you were there or what if you got a phone call that you had to stop working out and take somebody somewhere in the car right then!

    Good for you for getting right back to working out - no stoppin' you!

    Have a wonderful day - try to relax - and maybe have some tea and chocolate!

    Thursday HUGS!

  12. Oh, no! Sorry to hear you are in pain. Ugh! Your body is telling you that you need a little rest for sure. :D Hope you are feeling better tomorrow.

  13. ROFL!! You go girl!!
    This is one reason why I invested in a Wii Fit - so I could exercise in my own home.. though - one day after doing A LOT of boxing on the Wii Fit, I couldn't lift my arms to get my shirt off later that night.
    My DH thought it was VERY funny that I was very sore from working out in front of a 'computer'... that was until he tried it.. then was sore..

    Have a great one!

  14. Keep up the great work..way to go!
