Words of Wisdom that mean nothing...until they mean something


Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Like..."They grow up so fast!" I just barely listened when people said that to me repeatedly. But today...How can my daughter be 8 years old when I just gave birth to her last week????

Or "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away"--meant nothing to me. Then I got pregnant (apparently over 8 years ago!!!) and began to eat healthy, cut out caffeine and quit smoking...Huh--I felt great! Fancy that!

Foremost in my mind today is "A body at rest tends to stay at rest, and a body in motion tends to stay in motion". I was one sedentary, big girl. It actually hurt to get up off the couch. It really was easier to "stay at rest". NOW...months later...I started today on a 15,000 steps a day challenge with an awesome group of motivators and competitors...it is 6:10pm (eastern time), and I am at 15,828!! I am tired, and my legs are feeling sore, but I just keep moving. I cleaned up the kitchen, did a load of laundry (On Tuesday? Unheard of!) and I just keep moving! Made myself sit down to write this blog and share my words of wisdom.

Thank God I found Sparkpeople!

PS Ended the day at 17, 588!!!

    Yes, they do grow up fast! Mine are 21, 18 & 12, plus my 15 month old granddaughter lives with us. She is growing up so fast too. Proud of you on the steps. Monday was a great day for me on steps because I went to work. Yesterday, not so much, but I did get over the 10,000 mark. I will have to start shooting for 15,000 just because I am competitive that way.

    I will second that! Thank God indeed. Way to go on the 15,000 step challenge! I have a hard time sitting down on weekends or days off and keep thinking, what can I do now, where can I go, what should I clean, etc....
Let's stay in motion!
Way to go!
