That run and bike combo really did me well because I was sure running on some pretty fantastic exercise endorphins yesterday. Maybe it’s a combination of truly feeling blessed by the family I have and the encouragement I get to workout and the feeling of accomplishment that settled in me after getting it done, but… Continue reading Love, blessings, and exercise
The worst kind of anticipation is waiting to get news that you don’t know will be good or bad. The week leading up to finding out the results of my thyroid mass biopsy was unnerving. I am a worrier by nature. My mind always comes up with the worst case scenario, and boy did I… Continue reading Anticipation
I have a bad habit of not really posting consistently when life things come up and then I find myself having to recap a few weeks back to bring myself up to date in order to write about what I want to share. A few weeks ago my husband and I had a body… Continue reading About a parent: My mortality
I’ve started to do Yoga. I try to go twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, usually the 6am class. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. What I like though is I’ve gotten to that point in the workout mentality where when I don’t get to go, I miss it. My family was… Continue reading When downward dog seems like the best alternative
I’ve had such a terrible tummy ache since yesterday evening. My husband made us a really good dinner so I don’t know if it was triggered by something I ate or if it’s my nerves. I figured out a few years ago that when I’m really anxious/nervous/stressed or something has upset me tremendously it goes… Continue reading What’s in a dream?
Last Sunday my husband woke up at work and could barely get out of bed. It turns out that he had hurt his back again and was in a lot of pain. Neither of us had expected this to happen again, and what I didn’t realize is what a huge lesson in appreciation God was… Continue reading A Lesson in Appreciation
This morning I got another great workout in. My husband suggested that we go workout together, so after he took Biggie for his walk, we put Celeste in her stroller and then headed to a nearby park. While I started my run, my husband took the baby to a spot in the park and started on his… Continue reading Another Victory!
I am a Piscis, and very true to my nature I love being in water – specifically in a pool. I love to swim laps or just swim underwater and imagine, (yes even at my present age) that I’m a mermaid in my own little underwater world. I can’t even begin to put in words… Continue reading These Legs Were Made For Running
A few days ago I read the post Operation banging body, day effing 1 written by Ness at One Thousand Single Days, which you can find at this link http://onethousandsingledays.com/2012/08/13/operation-banging-body-day-effing-1/#more-570 Since then I’ve kept thinking about Ness’s words and the challenge she’s made to herself, so much so that I went back and re-read her post,… Continue reading I want my sexy back too!
There is a part of my subconscious (the stronger part) that is doing the bob and weave and saying “really, that’s all you’ve got? Bring it on!” and then the other half of my subconscious is huddled away in a corner, facing the wall, and waving a white flag over her head in defeat, burned out… Continue reading Burned Out But Laughing
