Very Quiet Day

And that is just what I needed today. No stress, no trip to the gym, a nice mile+ walk with the dog and a friend, and some great prayer time. It has been a great way to prepare for a new week! Hope everyone's weekend was a blessed as mine!... Read more
All In A Day's Adventures...

It was a lots of interesting mixmashed stuff today. I awoke in time to attend my walking group this morning. It was a great pre-walk session on the dangers of too much sodium in our diets and what we can use as healthier alternatives to the sodi... Read more
Got My Butt Kicked Today (In a Good Way)!
Saturday, April 20, 2013 4 comments
Today I was blessed to get my butt kicked by a 6'+ Scottish athletic trainer, and I have to say, it was a real eye-opener. I was doing things I did not know I was capable of doing and was genuinely proud of myself. That does not, however, mean t... Read more
Staying in control...

Grateful the work-week is over this week. I am trying to stay in control of things on my end of the world, but am struggling with the pain of my shoulder injury because I don't want to take heavy medication to stop the pain. That said, I a... Read more
The Sweet Hour

It has been an interesting day today that will be capped off by my deep water fitness class. I really enjoy that hour. Not only am I in the water (which will alter any negative vibe for me), I am doing all sorts of activities that I struggle to ... Read more
Learned a lot about myself today...

I had an appointment with a personal trainer today (a Scottish gentleman named Ross Gilbert) who really taught me a lot about myself. He was very kind as he explained many things to me that I can do to improve the strength in my legs as I prepar... Read more

It is hard to fathom how the mind of a malicious person bent on distruction works. It is also hard to process the havoc, blood, and gore their sick thinking brings to our world. While their actions may make us feel powerless in the moment, they ... Read more
Weighing in on my closet...
Sunday, April 14, 2013 6 comments
I have been doing a lot of laundry lately because I have found that the majority of what I own is far too big to fit me. Even with a belt, the old pants are no longer wearable because they look like clown pants. I plan to keep the largest pair f... Read more
Made it through my fitness test!
Saturday, April 13, 2013 5 comments
It was a first time ever taking a fitness test and I did okay. If I had been asked to do this last June, there would have been no way I could even attempt it without landing in the hospital. What a difference learning to love myself and losing 8... Read more
Being Honest with Myself

Saw the doctor today and had a reality check. My shoulder needs about 2-3 weeks of rest. That means no upper foundation garments, limited movement of the left shoulder (which will make the deep water fitness class very interesting), and (in lieu... Read more

This has been a week of lessons for me so far. I found the injury I had to my left shoulder a little over a week ago is a little more severe than I originally thought (think "get a bigger hammer"). I spent the better part of last week trying to ... Read more
Riding the See-Saw

Not sure if it's the weather (bad) or just the demeanor of all the people around me (gloomy), but I feel like I am struggling with my food choices today. I have not gone off track at all, but I really feel like it wouldn't take much to put me ov... Read more
Being Kind to My Health

I started my day a bit later than I intended this morning, but I did manage to take care of my spiritual self before I went on with the rest of my day. I hopped into the car and motored on down the highway to the Y in the next town and spen... Read more
Walking the Preserve
Sunday, April 07, 2013 8 comments
I was given a wonderful opportunity today and I took it. A group of women from my Saturday morning walking group decided to drive 35 miles to visit an amazing garden preserve that used to be the estate of a wealthy family many years ago. Af... Read more

Although I have been going to the Y for a couple of months now, I decided to try their 12 Week Activity program. I signed up today with a personal consultant with whom I will be working the next 12 weeks. I will log all my activity on both the S... Read more
