The heart of Positivity
Wednesday, March 16, 2016
Hello to all of you beautiful Spark friends! I was just telling a friend of mine how I'd planned on spending more time on Spark, yet I've been distancing myself from the internet. Another Spark friend decided to take 2016 and make it a year of no distractions - meaning no internet or tv at all! We've been writing and she's doing fabulous & full of creativity. I'm a bit jealous. But, not ready to cut all ties yet :) So, the goal is to get on here every couple of weeks to check in & see what's happening.
So, I spent 4 glorious days in Nashville with a girlfriend - walking around the city & sitting in bars listening to live music. It was fabulous. But then I came home - and managed to fall off my front stoop and break my foot. The emergency clinic gave me a boot and I'm going to the ortho doc tomorrow. But now I need help!
My hubby and I joined the YMCA in January and we've been going faithfully since then 5 or more nights a week. I get in 30 to 45 min of cardio and then do different weight machines. It's been great. Now mind you, I haven't lost any weight - sure that my age is fighting me & diet. I only seem to lose weight when I do strict Atkins and I just don't like doing that - I miss potatoes and fresh fruit... anyway, that's beside the point. I've been gaining energy and feeling much better with the exercise. But now? Heck, I'm scared! I guess I could do the pool though I HATE swimming laps. Like, despite them. For real. So, that's a back up, but what else? Obviously I can do machines for the weights, but I still need cardio. So, any ideas out there?
Other than that, life's been treating me just fine. We love being back in Landenberg though I do miss the Poconos and all the wild life. I am happy to be feeding my birds again - that was impossible in the mountains. The deer and bear thought bird feeders were for them alone. Work is good and spring is starting. I adore this time of year when everything gets green again.
I hope you are all doing well & enjoying life. Keep smiling and enjoy the day :) Oh, and try to stay positive even when life starts knocking you down!!! Love you!
