I am so excited to be exercising again! This was a difficult summer for me health wise. I did the best that I could, however I had to take it easy on my body. I had to walk, instead of the aerobic dance program that I was doing. My body took a long time to heal because of my crazy life, school and work schedule. Having just started a new job with long hours and being on the road during the hot southern Summer days; my health took a beating. I was fortunate to get a job in a new field. Most of the staff members are much younger than me. I did not feel comfortable saying no to assignments and I did not get the best assignments. I ate lots of small clean meals and fueled my body in a healthy fashion. I got a lot of rest when I could and most of all I practiced a lot of self care and prayer. After doing my part, I had to let go and let God and my body do their part. Since I am now working in the health care industry, I see a lot of sick people every time I go to work. Health is our greatest fortune. I am more determined then ever to continue exercising and eating healthy to help my body be in a balanced state. I am also making more realistic decisions instead of trying to do everything at an accelerated pace. My focus is to have it all, even though it might not be all at once.
