Do you all know you can make your own exercise groupings? Mine look something like this..
Each grouping of course has exercise attached to it, but the names keep me motivated. I hope this will spark someone else as well.
I only slept 4 hours last night. I must have had something on my mind. I went to bed at 9 pm. Didn't call asleep until around midnight. Up around 3 am to go to the BR. Up again at 4 am and I couldn't fall back asleep to save my life..
I know I've discussed that before and here as-of-late it seems to be occurring more often. Maybe I'm just not requiring as much asleep as before but 4 hours makes me feel like I'm running on empty.
Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. ~ Henry Van Dyke
Henry sure had the right idea didn't he? How many talents do you possess that lie dormant? Why are you afraid to showcase them? It has nothing to do with patting yourself on the back. It has to do with putting your God given talents to use.
Can you write letters? Than go to a nursing home and volunteer your time writing letters for those that can't anymore to their families
Can you sing? Then sing at church or a nursing home (older folks love this)
Can you read? Then volunteer your time at school to the kindergarten and first grade classes. Teach them that reading is fun.
Can you see? Then take pictures and share them with local newspapers and magazines.
Can you feel? Then volunteer your time to developmentally or seeing impaired individuals. Teach them about textiles and what it means to be able to feel and see a world they may not be able to.
Can you walk? Go door to door for a local charity of your choice.
The talent can be BIG or small. It doesn't matter just use it. The biggest thing is getting started. Places like nursing homes, group homes and charities need individual help and volunteerism. They depend on it because most are non-profits and can't afford to pay anything, but we should be able to give our time. When we do everyone wins, the agency, the consumer and our own feeling of being helpful.
So what are you afraid of??? Get going!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I want to share something with all of you. It is how women perceive themselves vs how their family and friends see themselves. I don't know about any of you but I had to have my Kleenexes handy. You can view the video on the following link.
Husbands, kids whoever. Let me tell you from personal experience. Your momma or wife needs this. They need to know that they are enough! Tell them please for me.
I believe I say it every Friday and I'll say it again today. I'm glad it is Friday.
I went to the docs Tuesday. They want to put me on Blood Pressure medicine. I've never had a problem with it before. She gave me the line about it being the silent killer and that I needed it. My BP was 148 over 84. I know the top is a wee bit high but I exercise, watch what I eat etc. etc. I will most likely cave in because it does scare me that it is running higher than normal. And am under a lot of stress what with the merger of our agency with another all of those changes plus the changes with my knees....
She wanted to place me on another medication as well for pain management. I said okay. Got the pharmacy and it was $135 for 1 month. I told them to put it back I wasn't paying that much.
So that has been my week. How about you? How is everyone doing?
Enjoy your fall day. Let the leaves fall gently around you. Remember their season is much shorter than ours yet they live it fully. ~ Donna
