Free Gym Membership

One of the benefits of being a full-time student at BSU is a free gym membership at the Student Rec Center. I admit that I have been having difficulty finding time between work class, homework and family-that and the fact that I tend to be sorta lazy. Since school was out this week, due to Thanksgiving vacation, we decided to check it out. We went 4 times this week. One of my sons who is also a full-time student decided to join us as well. Hope to try to make this a regular routine, since I really need to get my fat ass in shape and why not take advantage of a FREE gym membership.

They have all the benefits of a regular gym-cardio, weight machines, free weights, classes, climbing wall, racquetball, basketball, indoor track, etc. For an extra fee, there is massage and personal training. There is also an aquatics center located elsewhere on campus, for those that prefer swimming and such. Used to like water aerobics, but hated traipsing back to the locker room all wet, cold and drippy, then having to get out of a wet suit.

Also, think my body may be rebelling against this healthy crap. Since I started eating vegan (started off as a self-intervention for a psych class and decided to continue for health and ethical reasons) and exercising my GI system is complaining (well, complaining more than it usually does-have IBS). Gonna try to keep this up though. Think the health benefits will be worth it. And did I mention the membership was FREE!

Happy Thanksgiving

Normally, not a fan of some of Peta's tactics, but like this ad.

Stop Animal Abuse

Warning-contain graphic images. Please help stop animal abuse. If you don't have the time, money or patience to properly take care of an animal...don't get one! And if you already have one, please give them to someone who can. I don't understand how people can be so cruel, all animals want is someone to feed them, give them somewhere warm to sleep, someone to play with them and give them some attention and a lot of love. The same as every one of us wants. I don't think that is too much to ask.
