The Fun and Fit Group

on September 27, 2011

I told you that in an earlier blog, the girls and I have been working out together with some other friends. We call it the "Fun and Fit" group. I don't know how fit we are, but we do have fun:) Today I would like for you to meet them.

I suppose I should start with our leader. Paige - Our Trainer

Married to another Stuart... (other than mine) Mom of Luke, Lane, and Levi. We all hate her because she can wear those spandex pants and look amazing! Whatever! But none of us want to work as hard as she does to achieve that perfection. Notice her tshirt today. None of us would say that:)

Here's Shelley - She was not excited about my taking pictures this morning.

Of course you already know her. She always has something funny to say to make us laugh. Working out is just not the same without her.

Then there is Leigh -

We make fun of her pushups, but she has a great attitude about the whole thing. She is very aware of the time clock and makes sure that Paige doesn't get busy and forget to tell us to "SWITCH"!

Sweet Kelley - I call her KT

Married to Scott ... Mom of Wynne, Will, and Watson. Most of the time, Kelley is super sweet and positive. One of my favorite people in the world. However, when we have to do squats too long an evil monster comes out and she might yell a little bit. (which makes us all die laughing)


Married to Rick.... Mom of George, Steve, and John . George is Spence's best friend since kindergarten. She's the more serious of the bunch. ALL BUSINESS. Being the organized brain that she is, she wants to make sure she's doing everything right. She will laugh and cut up with the rest of us, but she definitely comes with a purpose to get a good workout in. We have basketball in common. I suppose once a jock, always a jock. She and I act as if we are trying hard to please the coach. The others don't really care that much.

Kirsten -

Married to Rob.... Mom of Caleb, Sarah, and Ben. I don't even know where to start with her. She's hilarious and always has a smart comeback to anything that is said. She and Shelley are neighbors. I'm not sure which one is funnier. It's a definite toss up. She makes us mad too because her legs are so long, she can eat anything she wants and the food has a place to go besides the middle like the rest of us.

Last but not least is Michele -Married to Tim... Mom of Unfortunately she had to miss today. I think Paige hurt us too much last time and she's still recovering. No, not really. But she did have to miss today. She is so sweet and doesn't know what in the world to think of us. I'm not sure what she expected, but I know that we weren't at all what she thought we'd be like.

And Here is me..... They made me put my picture in too because we all look so terrible...

Okay, well that is the gang. I'm not exactly sure what Paige has in store for us today, but she mentioned "inner thighs" OUCH!!! Nothing about that sounds fun. Here's what I didn't tell you about these girls..... They have been a life line for me over the past few weeks. God never intended for us to walk life alone and I'm so thankful He has put each of these ladies in my life. They love me unconditionally and have held me up when I couldn't hold myself up. They are sisters in Christ and have been there to remind me of his steadfast love. They have been the hands and feet of Jesus. I hope that you have a "Circle of Friends" that do the same for you.

Have a blessed day and if you've got some friends like these in your life, make sure you tell them how much you love and appreciate them.


Loved reading this blog Denise!
I teach 1st grade by day and Fitness classes at night at an all ladies gym. On my nights off from the gym I walk about 8 miles with my girlfriends. Wouldn't trade my "fitness friends" for anything.
Love You and Miss Seeing You,

You should have had to work out with Paige in high school!! She was just as intense back then but it was GOOD TIMES!! I love Paige dearly and am terribly jealous that you get to hang out with my dear friend and I don't!!! She still remains one of my bestest and dearest friends to this day! The tshirt is sooooo her and that made me laugh. Thanks for sharing and I sure do wish I lived near you gals to come workout and laugh with you (and be tortured by Paige)!
