I joined a gym

Well, my injury frustration has finally driven me to bite the bullet and join a gym.   

I started with a 3 day pass to the 24 hour fitness by work.  I really liked them because of the prices and the fact that they have 5:30am classes almost every day.


yesterday’s hilly bike ride

I have to wake up at about 4:15 in order to get there and squeeze in a workout, but I am loving being able to go before work…it literally makes my day 100 times better.

They also have a pool so I can start swimming/water running which will be nice and gentle on my hip. 

In other news…we have a new pal staying with us for the next 5 days! This is the exact breed of dog (greater swiss) that Joe and I are planning to get next summer, so we are considering this weekend a bit of research.IMG_1076[1]


Dinner last night was a pretty good concoction…sprouts shells and cheese with roasted zucchini and imitation crab….extra cheese on top and baked….IMG_1077[1]

perfect comfort food for a cold night in Denver!

PS – yonana + crushed grahams = awesome!IMG_0984[1]

Do you have a dog? What are you up to this weekend?

    The gym will be really fun, even if the price tag isn’t! 🙂 Can’t wait to see how swimming goes! It really is therapeutic for the body, I swear, any time my body doesn’t feel a right, a solid swim makes me feel so much better. Maybe it’s in my head and I’m dumb. Let me know lol.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Yay for the gym! What a nice looking pool… I really want to get back into aqua jogging. It is a great workout and 100% gentle!! 🙂
    No dog yet, but that is on my to-do-list when I move to Denver 🙂

  7. I love 24 hour fitness! I used to go there when I lived in Oregon. Great gym! Awesome that there is a pool!!!
