Born to Move. Proud of My Body.
Wednesday, October 24, 2012
I was thinking yesterday....
I have one friend in the hospital after a major surgery, a cousin in the hospital with internal bleeding (they think from her previous gastric bypass surgery), a friend with brain cancer, and another friend recovering from breast cancer and its treatment.
Here I am, getting frustrated because of what my body won't do (immediate gratification) and there is so much my body IS doing! My body is a clear statement to my Creator that I cherish this simple gift of life. I am, overall, healthy. I have an opportunity to continue that through the fuel that I give this beautiful body of mine, and through the movement that I gift my body with.
Don't take for grated that movement is a gift to your body. We were designed to move. Think about that. You began this process in your mother's womb - kicking about, flipping, and as soon as you reached this world you couldn't wait to crawl, walk, run - MOVE!
One of the recent board posts I read (and commented) is: When was the last time and how are you proud of yourself? I've decided I'm going to include that thought in my blog. And ask you: what are YOU proud of today?
I got up early enough to make an eggwhite and yellow bellpepper omlette, and have already done 10 minutes of cardio - I even high-fived the computer screen and Coach Nicole when the workout was over. I'm planning for 10 more at lunch.
You were born to move.
Be proud of that - honor that.
(love to all you wonderful sparking-spirits)
