five on friday

{1} Well, I finally did it. I finally joined a gym. I finally got sick of being lazy shamed by all the surveys asking me how often I was active per week. I had been eyeing Planet Fitness because of their $10/month / no contract membership, but there was a $40 start-up fee plus a $39 annual fee billed November 1st, so I never pulled the trigger. Suffice to say, when I saw they were having their 25th anniversary sale where the start-up fee was only $0.25, I immediately signed up. If you were on the fence like I was, it looks like the sale is good until November 16th. I went for the first time last night. I am dramatically out of shape. I am very sore today. I also couldn't find headphones anywhere so I had to steal Elden's.

{2} Jon sent me this text yesterday. I laughed out loud. Edith badger don't care.

{3} Kohl's is having their Veterans Day sale today! Since the only sneakers I have are my Chucks, I knew I would need to buy better shoes now that I am going to be exercising. I bought these FILA sneakers for $4 shipped after I used the Veteran's Day / Kohl's charge promotional codes and some Kohl's Cash I had!

{4} I know that this is a theme today, but I am eyeing a Fitbit. On Black Friday, Kohl's has a sale on both the Charge 2 and the Alta HR. I don't need it to do anything fancy, mostly just track my heart rate and activity. Any suggestions? Experiences? Recommendations?

{5} Tonight is date night for Jon's 30th birthday! I am super excited. I'm still not sure how the kids are going to do sleeping over our parent's houses since they are all sick, but even if they end up coming home tonight at least we will get a little break to celebrate Jon!

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!


  1. Yay for you!! That's awesome. :)) I love my Fitbit. And once you get one and download the app, it'll keep track of your weight and you can log food intake, etc.

  2. That is an awesome deal on the gym membership! Thanks for commenting on my blog...can't wait to follow yours!
