Monthly Habit: May Ė Moving
Moving

Itís May, and that means itís time to get moving! Each May we practice the habit of getting our bodies used to a few minutes of daily loving movement. This could be walking, running, dancing, etc. Whatever you do, make it fun and it will get done! Here is some great information to help you get started:

In Honor of our habit, we will be taking a virtual walking tour of several beautiful educational locations across the globe! We will be exercising our bodies and our minds!

Where we go first is a surprise!!! You will need to move and post your minutes to receive hints Ė Donít forget to KEEP checking. There is a catch!! You will only see the hints and the places we have been when you post your minutes! If you have health limitations Ė just sitting and using your light arm weights will count as exercise! We just want everyone to add a small amount of movement to their routines every single day!

To make this journey happen we recommend you use your timers. You will post the minutes you have moved on our Minute meter and we will give you hints of where we are going next! Once we reach our destination, you will get fun facts and information, just as though you were a tourist! We will keep a map of all the places we have visited along the way so you can virtually see how far you have travelled.

Because we are visiting educational locations, please make sure to include your children (if you have them)! This is going to be one of our most exciting Mayís ever!

A little moving will energize you and you will feel better! Ė FlyLady

Here are the habits we have covered so far this year. Remember to reinforce these habits while completing your new one:

January Ė Shining Your Sink
February Ė Decluttering for 15 minutes a day
March Ė Getting dressed to shoes
April Ė Making the bed
Donít forget to keep up with the habits you created. View our habit archive.

Itís May; Let the MOVING begin!
Dear Friends,

Today marks the first day of our Moving in May Bless your Heart challenge! Yes we are going to spend the month of May reinforcing our routines for taking care of ourselves.

Heart disease attacks one in three women.

When I read the article from the April 28, 2003 issue of Time Magazine I had a wake up call! Heart disease attacks one in three women. I have had emails from members in their mid thirties that have had heart attacks. There is a history of heart disease and stroke in our family. My father died at 58 from a heart attack and he was not over weight. My mother died from complications from a stroke at 65; So who am I kidding here. Life is too short as it is to interrupt a wonderful life with a fading heart that canít pump your blood!

Over the years our activity level has decreased and slowly just like our clutter in our home; our body clutter has increased. The main reason is our lack of moving!

We no longer know how to play! We have become too wrapped up in our clutter that we became paralyzed physically! We took to our beds, secluded ourselves behind our locked doors and refused to greet the world. When your home makes you feel so bad that you have to hide then it is time to get off our frannies and hit a lick at a snake (southern for just doing something!)

I have gotten emails complaining that they thought they joined a group to get their home in order not a weight loss or exercise group! Well Sisters and Brothers this group has always been about taking care of you. If I can teach you how to FLY(Finally Love Yourself) then your home will come together.

Here is why! You have been beaten down for so long and I want to teach you how to lift your own self up by the laces on your tennis shoes and take control of your life. For years you have been responding to the forces of clutter around you! The only time you cleaned was when you had to. You hated cleaning because it took so long and you didnít have time to do it right, so you let everything go until it reached out and bit you right where it hurts the most: your self-esteem. Your own words were mean and degrading. It is time for this to stop!

We are going to Bless our Hearts and in the process we will be blessing our families, our homes and the world! A little moving will energize you and you will feel better!

Are you ready to FLY and bless your heart at the same time! Today we start Moving! All we are asking is just 15 minutes a day. Set your timer and have some fun!

If God gives us what he thinks we can handle, He must think I'm a BadAss.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.

Your body can stand almost anything. It's your mind that you have to convince.

Marj.
