Up & At 'Em

Monday, April 15, 2013

Ok, this morning I did the unthinkable (for me). I got up out of the warm bed and worked out for 20 minutes with a cardio set on my cable. Those who know me know that I am not a morning work out gal. I love the sound of it and even secretly envy those of you who, day after day, rise up and work it out.

I can't take full credit for this. It had a lot to do with the #@(#* bird that perched outside my window singing the most lovely melody OVER & OVER & OVER again until I thought I would join in. Now I normally would smile and give thanks for the beautiful song that the Lord has for me as I awaken. Could it be missing out on a night's sleep to sit with new baby Thomas that had me out of sorts? It was worth every minute. And, I felt really strong as I went to work.

Maybe it will happen again... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love that you were able to get that Cardio done this morning -- no matter how you got it done!
doesn't it feel great? I love morning fitness (when I fight the lazies or the bed monsters)

Way to go!

    WTG by giving the morning workout a try even when you didn't get all the sleep you needed.

Blessing at Easter

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I don't need a basket and a bunny make me feel blessed this Easter. I am hopping down the bunny trail with my own basket of blessings filled with grace and mercy for what was done at the cross so long ago.

I got off the couch tonight and walked/jogged it out during one of my shows. That made me feel good and now relaxed. Just that little exhertion will help me sleep well. In fact - let me go get started now... YAWN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a blessed, Good Friday! emoticon

Never Quit Pledge

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I saw this on a Friends Blog and I love it!

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

Spring Focus!

Friday, March 15, 2013

emoticon Part of our team challenge this week is to blog about our goals we are setting for the spring.

I need to get back to the basics so here goes:

emoticon Drink my 10 glasses of water daily
emoticon Get 5 days of cardio in during this challenge
emoticon Work on core and strength training 3 days a week
emoticon Track ALL my food each week
emoticon Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep each night
emoticon Remember to stop and smell the roses

emoticon Kick those extra lbs gained this winter off!!!

These are simple but achievable goals. I feel stronger already just looking at them!

If I stick to these goals, I will have lost some lbs, lost some inches and feel great at the end of the challenge!

Sense of Humor

Monday, March 11, 2013

Even though I am mourning the loss of an important mother figure in my life, I am reminded of the gift of laughter. She loved to laugh and had that contagious tinkling kind of giggle that had you from the start. She was 91 and although she was serious about her Lord, she would always have song in her heart and twinkle in her eye when folks were around. She could play a harmonica, do the rabbit dance until her 80's and sing hymns with a rich alto that enticed you to join in.

Heaven is richer today when she departed this world. emoticon
