A body in motion
Friday, June 24, 2011      0 comments

I don't like to exercise. But I need to clarify what I mean when I say that I don't like exercise. All things being equal, I subscribe to the Aristotle's theory; a body at rest will remain at rest until something acts upon it. In my case, I like... Read more
I Surprise Myself
Saturday, June 18, 2011      1 comments

I surprised myself today. I decided to run from the car wash to the salon for my hair cut. It was my plan to run back from the car wash since it didn't seem very nice to show up all sweaty for my appointment. But there I was running the .9 mile.... Read more
Too many simple carbs = more exercise
Friday, June 17, 2011      0 comments

I was veering into too many simple carbs today. It started with the bagel and lox. Then at the staff meeting I ate four Vienna fingers (and enjoyed every one of them!) I wanted liquid therapy after work, too. Finally, a co-worker very kindly sav... Read more
Running and Praying
Thursday, June 16, 2011      0 comments

I wish I could say the 1 mile waddle/run was getting easier. Alas, it is not. What is getting easier is going out and doing it. I actually found myself looking forward to a run. I've also been following the run with a 20 minute cardio workout. T... Read more
Made the One Mile Run Goal
Friday, June 10, 2011      0 comments

I met my first Viking Warrior Woman goal today. I ran Lucy Larcom route without stopping - that is just over a mile. I was sucking wind pretty hard and I wasn't speeding along, but I ran it. I didn't think I'd run today. I had a terrible n... Read more

What a Difference Music Makes
Tuesday, June 07, 2011      1 comments

I ran this morning and I almost enjoyed it. I did the Lucy Larcom and I ran about half of it. I'd run as far as I could then I'd walk briskly until I could go again. I ran the 1.1 mile in +/- 13 minutes. Having the playlist of fun workout songs ... Read more
What? I'm Excited About Running?

Something weird happened to me last night. I read a post from Coach Nicole about the Warrior Dash. It intrigued me enough to google it. That was it. I have to do the silly thing. ttp://warriordash.com/ I hate running.... Read more
God and the Good Life

Today was an easy day for meditation but not so easy for exercise. Sunday in church lends itself to my getting lost in meditation. I got a solid 10 minutes in. This afternoon Dan and I went out for our Sunday bike ride. Johnny and Mary Ann... Read more
Meditation Bootcamp
Saturday, June 04, 2011      2 comments

I took some time today and yesterday for meditation. I wish I could say it transformed me completely. The best I can tell you is that I was transformed a little bit. The Scripture I'm trying to live this month is "Do not conform yourself to... Read more
Bought a Bike Today
Saturday, June 04, 2011      1 comments

My husband doesn't drive. He never has because his vision is lousy. So he rides his bike everywhere. Plus he rides his bike for exercise and recreation, too. He's been after me to join him on his Sunday rides. I'd put him off for months. About 6... Read more

So not to get all preachy because that really isn't my thing, but I also want to focus on my spiritual health. There should be a 28-Day Meditation Bootcamp. For sure I need it. I won't go into details, but the stress at work is through the roof ... Read more

Be the Person God Wants Me to Be

I haven't posted much at all. I've been AWOL from SparkPeople because of extra demands at work. I fell off my exercise routine. I can say that I managed to maintain my weight - small fluctuations up and down, but nothing major. However, th... Read more
Giving Everything to God
Saturday, January 08, 2011      0 comments

Today's mediation is very short, but to the point. We have to give our entire heart, mind and soul to God. Nothing less. That means we have to do everything completely and to the best of our ability. I have a lot planned for today. Stuff ar... Read more
