Meaning of the Season

Monday, December 24, 2012

Just remembering that the short days of winter here in the northern hemisphere can be especially trying for many. LOVE is the real reason for the season, whatever one's religious beliefs may be.

Empathy

Friday, December 14, 2012

I did not hear about the Connecticut shootings until almost 4:00 this afternoon. So sad for all the victims of such a horrible crime, including that young man who did it, because he obviously needed some kind of help that he did not receive. Thankful for the brave people who saved many lives, and for those who are comforting and supporting so many who are affected in many ways. And in addition, it occurrs to me that, although there may be no direct connection, this was also in the same general area of the country where so many have still been dealing with the ravages of the storm, Sandy.

Yesterday's Workout Result

Thursday, August 23, 2012

It felt really good to go to the Y and accomplish a workout yesterday afternoon. I pedaled for 25 minutes on the stationary spinner cycle, and worked up a sweat. Then I showered off and went swimming for about 35 minutes. It feels like it was enough, because I was tired afterwards, and have a few aches and a little soreness this morning. I need to make this into a regular activity, so I will try to do some again tomorrow, remembering to take my water bottle along.

Planning to go to the gym this afternoon

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Usually I do the steps (17) in my house several times a day, and walk several times a week. I want to increase my activity to improve my spirits and lose more weight. Since I love to swim, and have lost weight that way before, I also enjoyed swimming in my friend's backyard pool; but her husband isn't well right now, so that option is out. Fortunately, I can walk to my local Y, where my health insurance gives me a generous, and only slightly limited, membership as preventive medicine. It isn't as beautiful as her backyard, but on the other hand I won't have to drive to get there.
