Thankful on Thursday

I had a hard time thinking of something to write about today for some reason. And it's not that I'm feeling down or anything either, just not sure what I'm thankful for!

So I'll do a lame-o thankful post about our new gym! I'm uber thankful we decided to switch gyms. Our old one was tiny and offered no classes or benefits. There wasn't even a locker room for the love!

Our new gym has over 150 classes per week at no extra charge. Not to mention 3 swimming pools, 3 saunas, a steam room, thousands of machines for cardio and lifting, nice showers and lockers, tons of ammenities. I could go on and on. And the best part? I look forward to being there. I love it. I've been there everyday this week and I'm going back tonight. And Saturday. And Sunday. :) They have a spa there so I'm also getting a discounted massage Sunday. Do you know how long it's been since I've had a massage? Can't wait!

Tonight I'm having a free fitness evaluation with a trainer. They offer it to all new members along with $150 dollars to use toward fitness services. Hell yeah!

And I got to thinking this morning in the shower about what excellent shape I was in from 2007-2009. And I realized 2010 took more of a toll on me physically than I thought. Don't get me wrong, I still work out, weigh about the same (give or take a pound or 2) and eat right for the most part. But I'm not as toned as I once was. I was in a total rut with working out. I didn't care as much about taking care of my body last year. Not to mention I turned 30 so things aren't as easy as they once were!

So I guess I'm also thankful for the renewed motivation I'm feeling this year. There are many things I can't control in life but this isn't one of them. I'm going to get back into kick-ass shape this year. I'm going to be toned and hot! I'm also going to purchase a few new workout clothes. That always helps. :) And I am in desperate need! :)


  1. Hey Girl - I was just reading through some of your post and it seems we have alot in common - we were also dealing with MFI and we are also at a standstill with IF treatments. Do you think you will ever do IVF?? Are you basically finished with TTC now?? If you ever want to talk - please feel free to e-mail me at,

  2. I love the gym, it makes me feel so much better. What classes are you trying?? PS I still can't get over how much your ridgeback looks like mine!! Where did you get Bisa?

  3. Jackie, I don't think we will do IVF. We are 100% OOP and just can't stomach the idea of it NOT working and being out the $20,000+ we'd be looking at for the total cost. We do have a lot in common, it's so great we have our blogs. Since I don't post on IF much anymore I can still keep up with everyone!

    CJ- I've been taking an athletic yoga class on Tuesdays that I love. It's fast paced and keeps my heart rate up so I love it! We got her from a private breeder in South Dakota, where did you get your Ridgey?? I need to see pics of yours!

  4. We got ours from Bismark, ND!!! I will try to figure out how to post a picture. I could send a picture via email too.
