Natural Workout!

So we talk about working out in the gym, specific exercises and more...
But nothing can be more exhausting and work more muscles than a good natural workout at a out doors garage sale with 8 youth and only a couple of adults to run it!
The bending, stretching, lifting, twisting, squating, pushing, yelling, breathing...ect....

Then when you think you get to go home and rest until 5...you take two youth girls home with you until then.  So many laughs this time too!  We had a lot of fun and were able to relax a little, but again, when around youth, there is not much time to completely relax... :)

Then to top it off, going to Austin Parks and Pizza with that same group of Crazy Kids, running after them, standing in lines, crouching in a bumper boat while trying to dodge getting soaked by water (which didn't work by the way) and spinning on the teacups (twice - barf!!! almost)  because your youth nearly break your fingers pulling you on there!  Oh and I can't describe the workout from the laughs that constantly were happening as I watched some try and some succeed climbing the rock walls, having shooting contests which one kid kept winning, it wasn't too fair, and watching one of our boys with huge sun glasses on laughing and talking as hysterically as he could!  

Now I am at church...no the service has not started yet...helped set up tables and I am so tired!  It is a good tired, but my body is trying to tell me to go sleep some more!

I am sorry my post is not on my day, my internet at my apartment has been out for the past couple of days...grrr....I did have to get on the internet to send a letter for a friend (delinquent friend :) ) and I sat outside and coffee house using the computer and their free wifi while my computer was in my passenger seat...felt very special agent...   But luckily I've got access at church this morning  :)  It helps when you are one of the youth pastors...

Well...what to take from this post...natural workouts are just as amazingly tiring as going to the gym...you just have to get off your butt and do something!  I have not been to the gym since Tuesday :( because of getting garage sale stuff ready, it takes a lot of work, but I did get a work out from it!!
