Sobbing in Spin Class?

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Yup! That was me today!

I love my trainer/spin instructor she is a devout Christian and does an awesome "spirit ride" on Saturdays. I had no idea I was holing on to so much junk. Then about 2 songs in I was leaking from my eyes ;)

I just could not stop the tears. I was not really sure at first why I was crying but I couldn't stop!

My friend (instructor) came to check on me and said, just give it all to God. So I just cried and worked out in the darkness of the spin room, with wonderful motivating Christian music. I just cried to God, what is it Is it Trevor (my heart patient son) or is it something else? Then all the negative words, thought and experiences came to the surface I was quietly saying them out loud to give them to God.

I pushed, I cried and I had a lovely Therapy Cardio session

    You had a punch/kick moment, but on a bike!!! Give it to God, sweet sister ... for His shoulders are the only ones big enough. Laying it at the alter for Him to bear is the only way we can see thru the pain. \o/

    Crying is a marvelous way to let go of stress, exercise is as well. So glad you were finally able to trigger that ultimate release and really give it all to God!

    There is nothing better than giving it up to a higher power. I grew up a Catholic, spent time in the Southern Baptist faith, gave up organized religion but now have talks with my maker all the time. I have become more spiritual every time I look at the miracle of my granddaughter. Nothing is more pure than the experience you had. To me that gives better witness than most! I'll make it a point to pray for your family. Thank you very much for sharing. You are strong!

    Isn't it incredible how your physical well being is to intimately tied to spiritual well being?

Wow. You must be exhausted, though.

    Wow that is awesome. Give it to God and let go of all of it. The bible talks about how we should not worry. And I suspect God tells us that in the bible because he knew that worry eventually makes us sick.

Stay positive, and your body will follow...

cheers, June emoticon

What it means to be a "Warrior"

Saturday, March 19, 2011

I am the last person to ever call myself that but I have join a RFML team call Warriors and I plan on earning that title by the time summer is officially here!

The cardio/strength is the easy part (right now) I run, spin and do boot camp already so I decided I better work on my balance and nutrition! The nutrition is not too bad...I need some tweaking no doubt, but I want to improve my intake and put the best I can into my body.

Balance (life balance) is the HARD part for me. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I turn to food and isolation when I am feeling "down". NO MORE...NO MORE of that garbage for me. I need to reach out, look up and put my struggles on God fully. I cannot live this life with out faith and I need to let go and let God.

I plan on keeping busy, eliminating processed food, and learing to love myself!

    you have a great outlook on things. You are not alone with finding the Balance to be the true challenge of all this. I think it is totally normal for people to find it difficult to turn inwards and work on themselves but just remember you are not alone, lots of us are struggling along right with you. Hope you have a fab weekend and looking forward to what week 2 will bring us!!

My Disney 5k

Saturday, February 26, 2011

This was my first Disney Run, it was so fun and exciting. My friends and I met at our hotel and got settled. Went to Down Town Disney for a little shopping for our kids :) Had a nice dinner and lots of laughs!

That 4:30am wake up call came too fast! emoticon

Here is the crowd this morning from my perspective, about 5,000 people total!


The run was easy as far as courses go, it was so cool to run through Epcot! This is what the sky looked like when I crossed the finish line.


This 5k was a personal 'worst' but only since I have been sick with bronchitis and my asthma has returned (boo!) I had some moments of serious discouragement but pressed on! Here I am with my Beauty and The Beast Medal


The plan is to train for the Princess Half Marathon next February. emoticon

    Personal best is not only defined by simple measures of time but also of the challenges that were overcome to make it to the starting line and that changes with every race.
for you to have overcome the issues that you have which made the race far harder than it should have been, I would say that you ran a personal best because it took all that you had to finish due to your setbacks.

that makes you champion.

    Yippeee! Good for you for running even when you didn't feel well.

Our family is training for Disney runs, too. Our whole family is going to run the 5K, and I'm going to run the Princess Half. Probably 2013 or 2014.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Getting back on the wagon

Friday, January 28, 2011

I have nearly fallen off the wagon :( I had a rough week about 2 wks ago then a 10 day long PMS from hell. I have done some damage but nothing un-doable. I need to get back to tracking EVERYTHING and keeping busy when I "feel" like eating.

I didn't want to log my weigh in since it had gone up, but how is THAT helping me? So I did it, I am not happy or proud.

Anyway this is my declaration to get back to it. I deserve it and I am worth it.

    You are absolutely worth it. You are succeeding just by picking yourself up and dusting yourself off and getting back on track. Way to go!

    You said it all in your last sentence - You deserve it and you're worth it! There's not a one of us that hasn't slipped up - I'm pointing at myself as a prime example right now.... emoticon But we can all get back on track! emoticon The more positive you are the better! We're all cheering you on! emoticon

    Pick yourself up and dust yourself off. You are fine! Today is a new day and a new you. Forget what has happened in the past and look to the future. You are writing this page in your book. keep writing. Look at what it was that first got you off the wagon and deal with it and go forward!

I fell off for a few months and am back. Chastising myself (or yourself) just condemns us into failure. You can and will get through this!

Just take the next step...

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Next Step by Melissa Greene (one of my fav workout songs)

When your losing the fight and the finish line's too far away
All you got to do is take the next step just get back up and take the next step
Deep in your soul there's a strength just to face one more day
Just take the next step





All we have to do is take that next step, don't give up!!!
