It's a good day to get out and work in the yard. Looking out the window this morning I saw a baby mole. He must have gotten lost or left behind. He was trying to dig his way somewhere but he kept running into the bricks.
I just want to say how grateful I am for the life I have. My family is well, SparkPeople friends make my day, and I'm just in a place where I appreciate life. I have issues just like everyone else, but I'm learning how to look at those issues as blessings. We take so much for granted .
Yesterday I tried interval walking. I read about it in an SP article. You change your pace 4 times as you walk. It goes like this: Slow-2 mins., brisk - 1 min., moderate-2 mins., fast-1 min. Then you start over again.
It was something different and the time went fast. I'll probably do it a few times a week for a while, because I've gotten bored with my regular routines. I also want to find time to do the exercise balls and the bands. I have a set, but it's still in the box.
Enjoy your day and do something special for yourself today. Even if it's just speaking a kind word to yourself.
Personally I don't care for the concept of zoos, because I feel that animals shouldn't be kept in cages. But I understand how much good they do for the animals that are there. They had a lot of information on the programs that help support a number of animal organizations.
A few things I'm concerned about is how the rain forest has been destroyed, how the number of elephants and other animals have been severely decreased, and I was surprised that a lot of companies contribute to these issues by using material and ingredients in their products.
I'm going to check more into the products I use in order to do my part to go green.
