Random Thoughts and Observations

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Here are a few random thoughts and observations that I have had over the past few days.

1. If you take a 4 1/2 mile linear trail that only has a 1/4 mile level road, is it considered a walk or a hike?

2. With regards to the linear trail, why do I feel closer to God while walking this trail?

3. Why does listening to Celtic Woman always sound sweeter when crossing the Blue Ridge Mountains?

4. Why is it that I always want something sweet after a meal?

Ok, so these are more questions than observations.

I seem to find peace when I come to Tennessee. If I had a choice of living anywhere I would like my front yard to be the ocean and my backyard to be the mountains. I find happiness in both locations (I'm a Jersey Girl by birth), so why do I live in the Piedmont of North Carolina?

It is said that it takes 21 days to make something a habit. I have been on Spark for over four years. I would say that I have made a habit of logging in and recording my fitness and exercise. During those years I was not always good about recording my food intake, but over the past few months I have recorded as often as possible. I feel bad on those days that I can't record. I guess this makes recording food a habit.

Gee, it's nice to have good habits.

Have a great day and keep Sparking!

    I'm a New Jersey girl by birth also Melissa! I like the idea of having the ocean in my front yard and mountains in my back yard! That sounds awesome!!!

    I like having good habits! I think that tracking my food and realizing why I feel good or full or satisfied or sick. If I didn't keep track, I would never recognize which foods make me feel better or how much is too much. I also like the daily feedback to see if I am getting enough of nutrients or fiber, etc.

    Way to go Melissa!

    I want something sweet after a meal also (way too often). I go in spurts as far as recording my food.

    I hope you are doing well.

    I am a NYC gal and my dream location would be anyplace over looking the mountains. I love the moutains in GA, NC where you view them from the Bitlmore House and yet I live on a street called Mountainrock View where there are no mountains, no rocks, no views and sadly it is located within the Pickens Mountains of SC

    Lots of good habits!

    I ask lots of questions when walking, do lots of praying outside too.
