Joined the Y!

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Hi all! I joined the Y yesterday and am looking forward to being able to do some yoga after work and eliptical over the weekend. So - it is still a challenge, but I feel encouraged having made an 'investment' in my well-being and health.

So I'm encouraged and just wanted to pass some along...

Joy to your day - strength to you - and steadfastness for all of us reaching out for our goals.

    Very excited for you. I loved having every piece of equipment available to me, years ago, when I was part of a fitness club. I found that actually going there was enough to make me really work out instead of how I've been lately at home...which is not so much because it's easier to say I'll do it later.

Different kinds of tiredness...

Thursday, September 05, 2013

I find images so helpful in working through this journey of life - and health - and well-being. Maybe something here will resonate...

When I got home form work today, I found myself eating more than usual, and thought about it. I realized that I was especially weary after work, and when I am tired, it seems like my body wants food to try to boost energy. Some time back I had connected physical tiredness with eating more, and today was a good reminder.

Some images surrounding insights in input from today...

I love quotations - some of my favorites from today...

I am learning that when I listen to my body - and care compassionately for myself - the results are quite predictably like this...

Parting thoughts...

    I love the quote about taking care of self as being an act of survival. How true, and how long it takes most of us to figure that out (took me 38 years lol). Wonderful blog as always. =)

    Awhile back I realized that my body also sometimes interprets "tired" as "hungry." It's an important realization.

Nourishing body AND soul...

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

I am thinking a lot tonight about how important it is to nourish my soul with the same determination as learning to nourish my body.

I always grasp something more clearly - and more deeply when I can see visual images - so here are my favorites for tonight...

Nourishing your soul brings refreshment to your whole being...and what does that feel like? [So glad you asked! : ) ]

Fast track to refreshment?...
Just breathe...

Time for Netflix! Wishing you joy!
