Day 4 (again) - Bootcamp is very good for me
Monday, January 04, 2010
I've survived the first two days of bootcamp. Yes, I needed to choose easier options often, but I did it. This is a great way for me to get back into the habit of exercising.
On another note, I started a thread on SparkJews that I have been thinking about. It's called "Torah portion and Spark journey connections." It basically takes some piece of the week's parsha and looks at it from a SparkPeople perspective. My hope is to get it started every Sunday or Monday and see what happens. It's a way for me to make sure I think about the parsha during the week.
** Definitions - parsha - Jews read the entire 5 books of Moses (AKA the Old Testament) every year. It is broken down into 53 parts each being called a parsha. No, the Jewish year doesn't have 53 parts - sometimes two parshiot (the plural of parsha) are put together. The cycle begins in the Autumn with the holiday of Simchat Torah (Rejoicing with the Torah). This week is the beginning of the book of Shemot (Exodus). Torah in this case means the 5 Books of Moses but can also mean learnings in a larger sense.
