Catching Up…

Wow! Lots has been happening since school finished up last week. It was amazing to finally have an absolutely free weekend! No house projects, no school hanging over my head, no plans! It was great! You saw the post about Nations Bakery in Lyman. That was such an enjoyable time with good friends! Bryan even said we may have to switch it up and go there instead of Panera for our Saturday brunch dates. I will be good and pick a heart-healthy and figure-friendly option, along with my columbian coffee, of course!

After church on Sunday, we decided to grab Ruby Tuesday’s for lunch (they have the best salad bar in town)! Then we went for a drive up to Brevard, across the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville, and home again. It was very relaxing and a good chance to just chat. We finished the evening with some yard work. We’ve had a hard time fitting in yard work between afternoon showers recently, but we’re thankful for the rain!

We also finally found flights to Denver below $300pp, so we went ahead and booked a fall vacation! I can’t wait! We have so many friends out there now and it’s just so beautiful! Praying some of our friends from here can join us this time! I haven’t had a vacation since last Christmas, so I am definitely looking forward to it!

Monday, I met with a personal trainer client! We had such a great time talking and getting to know each other. I was able to give her some simple, practical tips for her health journey. Then we were able to go over to TJMaxx to check out their fitness equipment. I look forward to being her trainer! I think we’re going to get along splendidly. I was able to help her pick out a yoga mat and some resistance bands.

I found a punching bag and boxing gloves set for $17 at Ross, and put that together last night. Pumping up the punching bag took forever and was a real workout! I also found a great pair of wicking pants for $7 and picked up a set of resistance bands for myself.

Helping people on their personal health and fitness journey is so much fun! Our friends Dave & Rachel and we are going to check out (and hopefully join) ZX Fitness tonight! We decided that we should do something as couples other than just eat, so we’re planning on joining a gym together and working out together on a regular basis. It’s only $10pp/month, so I hope it’s as good as it sounds. I have another friend who already goes to this gym, and she loves it. The other plus sides are it’s literally around the corner from my house (as in, I could walk to it!) and it’s open 24 hrs./day! ZX stands for Zero eXcuses! I am very excited to check it out!

  1. Love reading your posts =) Wanted to pass this along since you’re not on my FB anymore … Jon’s got updated, revised and so much more informational than before … I’ll even be blogging (along w/others) on the site about my health/exercise journey after I get my test results back next week. There’s also a national ad campaign beginning, so you might here about it in your daily ‘travels’ in the coming weeks!!!

    Anyway, have a splendid week =)

  2. Yay for ZX Fitness!! I love it. 🙂

    BTW, I have a Ruby Tuesdays B1G1 free coupon that’s good until the end of the month. If you want it, let me know!

    Happy Tuesday!

    • Thanks. I’ll try to remember that. We’re trying not to eat out much. Oh, and all four of us ended up signing up for the ZX Fitness membership and put your name down as a reference, so you’re getting 4 free months! 🙂 Enjoy! Thanks for letting us know you loved it! 🙂
