It's Not Easy Understanding the Reasons for Some Events

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I am a big believer in everything happens for a reason, but when it comes to events like this - I shake my head in wonder ... questioning the 'WHY'. I don't generally follow the news nor do I ponder on it too long, but wanted to mention it because I do send my prayers out to all affected.

Sometimes circumstances, people, events challenge us on this front - but I choose to hold on to my smile and positivity. I am not saying that I am not hurt or affected by hard times, challenges or tragedies - but what I am saying is that I recover much faster.

Last night I took my first walk by the river which at this point is still covered with ice. The paths were cleared and while it was sunny most of the day - it was hidden behind the clouds by the time I got out.

This is the path I take which is pretty much in my back yard (or connected to our garden homes). Pretty bare for now but the paths have been swept clean and there were many cylcists out. The rest are pics by the water - many of which I've posted before by Andrew Haydon Park.

And the geese were waddling on the ice - some busting through the thinner spots...
With the rain that they are calling for - my next walk I am sure will have me walking by real water again :)

I got in 80mins total of walking yesterday (40 at lunch and 40 to go to this lovely place) and 20mins of upper body ST, 10mins Ab Jam and 10mins on my Gazelle.

Today's weather calls for rain so I'll get my 20mins in this morning - exceptionally tired this morning. Tonight's schedule is to get in a leg workout.

My weight is holding steady for now - but I'm still hoping to bust through to 160Ville again (I am 3lbs away). We'll see what the week brings. Today is my 9th day in a row AF!

Wishing you all a peaceful day...
