Working Out: Body, Mind and Spirit (It’s trendy to be holistic)

July 16, 2009

You know, if I got paid to blog, I would probably do it more often. Who’s gonna volunteer to fund this sweet operation? (Honestly, I will accept peanut butter m&ms and the occasional high five as payment. And, of course, chips.)

So, this summer is just flying on by, people! How is it already the middle of July and how have I not once gone to the pool or worn shorts?! Ah yes, that is mainly because those activities require the baring of my legs. But let me tell you what — these legs have had a work out at the old YMCA this week. I went to my favorite/most hated conditioning class on Monday and the focus was all legs all the time. We squatted and lunged and pushed. I spent the majority of the time weeping on my pilates mat.

I limped around for a couple of days, making sure to tell everyone that the limping came from the fact that I am supremely hardcore (I usually forgot to mention the sobbing). Then, I decided to be extra awesome and go to a second conditioning class on Wednesday. Little did I know that this class was also focused on the old legs. I actually yelled out loud during one of the exercises because it hurt so badly. Sadly, I am not even kidding. Therefore, I am currently unable to move. Jaci had to carry me into the office this morning. On her back. Like a spider monkey.

Here is some great news that is super exciting for no one but me: I am going to start grad school this fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, we all know that I am an awesome student who is hardcore and determined and will stop at nothing to reach my goal of finishing grad school in a timely manner.

I will be taking one class this fall. It may be a bit much. We’ll have to see.

The thing is that I’m a worker, so I’m going to start off slowly with the grad school thing at Denver Seminary. I am going to work toward a Master’s degree in Old Testament so that I can blow you away with my knowledge of Hebrew and Moses and the Law — seriously, my poor friends will be literally bored to an early death once I start grad school and have even more junk to tell them about all things Jewish.

I’m really excited to be going to Denver Seminary — I think it’s a good school with some intelligent professors. Also, I think Den Sem is really proud to have students who are able to weave their scholarly institution, spider monkeys, fat legs and pictures of Twilight all into one blog post. That takes talent, people. Probably why I was accepted.

So I’ve been reading through the Books of the Bible this year, and I just finished the Song of Songs. That book is a bit too scandalous for good Christians! I’m just saying — I don’t think it would pass CBA’s approval process.

OK, I best be going. Tonight I AM GOING TO SEE THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, AND I AM SO EXCITED!!!!! and will update about it very soon. I don’t think it’s a very popular movie, so this here blog will probably be the only place to get any kind of updated Harry Potter info — make sure to come back.

Sees ya soon!

    Agapelovelle: Thanks much! I’m excited about grad school. Also, I’m not sure that you and my mom count as a LOT. 😉
