Celebrate EVERY daily miracle.

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Today was a rest day for us before we start again tomorrow with Boot Camp at 8:30 a.m. - more pain :) and I can smile about it!

That being said I still beat the pavement at a fast walk for 45 minutes as the sun was rising over the ocean and then a wonderful swim in the warm water before lunch... and I even took a walk down the beach with my shirt OFF! Wonders will never cease, or maybe I am starting to learn that no one really cares how I look.

Daily miracles happen all the time - we have to see them and celebrate them.

I have NEVER in my life taken a walk on a beach with my shirt off - thats a miracle.

I have NEVER in my life done 4 hours of cardio a day and finished up tired but feeling amazed at how much the body can spring back when the mind is there to join it. Thats a miracle.

I can't touch my toes yet but I am only an inch or two away instead of a foot - thats a daily miracle.

Celebrate every small but remarkable step. As we eat right and exercise so many little things become more possible. See them and celebrate them.

    Glad you are experiencing daily miracles and that you appreciate them and to notice them. Sounds like this place is doing wonders for ya. Congrats on going shirtless, I know for women we are so fearful and mindful of how we look in a bathing suit.

Also, great job on the cardio, I bet you feel so amazing. Keep up the good work, can't wait to hear your next report.
