Facilitated My First Workout Class!

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Thanks to everyone who cheered me on yesterday about leading my first exercise class today! Sparkpeeps are the nicest peeps! We met today, and I really didn't think we would have more than about four people, since we are a very new group and not attached to a gym or anything. We had 9 or 10 women there, and I think everyone really enjoyed it! I am so grateful to God for being able to pass along the joy I've found in working out, and especially the connection I feel to God while I'm doing it. I believe God made us, and I am always thanking Him during my workout for the ability to exercise, and for all He is and does in my life. As I was just making my oatmeal and thanking God for how yummy the cinnamon smelled as it bubbled away with the bananas and blueberries, I also realized how cool it is that God made exercise feel good to us (well, you know what I mean! It might hurt for a moment, but He made the endorphins!) God made the healthy stuff good for us. Anyway, I came home really pumped and then jumped on the treadmill for 2 miles to finish up the workout. I'm so thankful for such a great life. And I'm thankful for you Sparkpeeps! It's very cool to see the Internet, so often used for ickiness, used for mutual encouragement between people who would probably never have the opportunity to otherwise meet!
Have a great Saturday, wonderful friends! emoticon

    Yay for your great class turnout and motivating others! I bet they are going to be thankful for YOU in their lives! How wonderful that you ladies also have your worship in common, so you can yell out "God is good!" during the hard parts together, lol!

    I agree, I am thankful for healthy food. Ever since I started tracking and focusing on eating healthier, I appreciate food so much more. It's a wonderful thing to be able to nourish out bodies everyday.

    I can feel your energy radiating out of this blog! You are starting something new and wonderful! You are right, we are so lucky to have a good use of the internet! Spark friends are real friends. emoticon emoticon emoticon
