  • Wait for's coming.....

    10/6/2015 8:02:25 PM, by HESSISCHFJ

    Nothing worthwhile is instantaneous, it's worked for, earned and comes in its own time. One of the downsides of this modern world. One of my faults.... I tend to expect quick results in regards to being able to bounce back. I tend to be hard on myself to push myself. I need to learn to rest, slo... Read more

  • Be Positive

    10/1/2015 7:29:38 PM, by HESSISCHFJ

    Some days this may be hard. But looking for the upside to a bad situation will help you in so many ways. Not just mentally/emotionally but also in your problem solving process. It's much harder to plan yourself out of a bad situation if your not thinking clearly and being negative. You will miss op... Read more

    9/30/2015 7:17:40 PM, by HESSISCHFJ

    Each and everything has value. No one person is any better than another. Everyone, in thier own way, IS special. Everybody deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Try never to sink to another's level. Treat yourself with honour and dignity, even if/when others dont. Realise your own worth... Read more

    9/29/2015 6:58:32 PM, by HESSISCHFJ

    Started out 3 times today to go for a walk and it began to rain. Last time I started I got about 10-15 minutes in and it began to rain. Just had to carry on. Was a light rain, no lightning and I was really wanting my walk. Did 55 minutes in the rain. Felt great! About 5 minutes after I stopped so di... Read more

    Hello! It has been a while since I've checked in. I've had a busy summer with travel for work. My PF in my foot is still bothering me.

  • Kids Don't Have All The Fun

    9/27/2015 9:19:20 PM, by SLYDEGLYDER

    It was raining Saturday morning when I woke up an 8am. That’s sleeping late for me. I peeked out the window to verify the sound I heard was what I would see. Sure enough it was rain. My enthusiasm dropped for my Saturday long walk. I told myself I would do the basic two miles to get something in, ... Read more

    Hello, everyone! We were in Vancouver, British Columbia for nearly a month. We really enjoyed it.

    9/19/2015 10:03:19 PM, by ELYSIAN_DREAMS

    No. I'm not planning on doing Insanity any time soon. (I would like to eventually, but it won't be my next endeavor.) However, I am hoping to begin a DVD workout of some sort, and I just wanted to establish a baseline. So, here we go. This was insanely difficult, and all I tried to ... Read more
