Well, it’s Wednesday! Hump Day. Midweek. My blah day. But it isn’t! I’ve had a great run, good times w my babes, and had a really nice “pond” workout with a friend today! Lucky me! My ♥️ 💪 cup is feeling full. Today’s workout: Walk fast to pond (1/2 miles) and walk around pond once (NY size block). Picnic table: step ups and push ups. 20 each. Walk to fishing hut (yes, really!): 20 standing lunges, 20 tricep push ups, 20 courtesy lunges Walk home (uphill, both ways 😜). Do
I'm often asked how to alleviate stress...uh, have you met me? I don't believe I really exude calm. However, others do. Something may be workin' I guess! I do suppose I'd be a WAY tighter ball of nerves and more anxious if I didn't do these 5 things.
By the way, all of the research I've done, which is a fair amount have one thing in common: exercise. 1. Walk away from the situation (this one is a struggle for me). It doesn't need to be solved right then. 2. Exercise. E
CHEERS! I love Friday like a child loves her bday (oh wait! I love that too!)! My kids are chill, my honey and I take a date night and I work very little (now that my biz is much smaller). I also ALWAYS workout. Weekend means fun workouts. I’m more creative bc I have more time. We do stupid-fun things like jump on our trampoline and I race my boy child (yes- I am still faster!). I take my four leggeds and two leggeds for long walks (after the two leggeds stop complaining, it
I had a revelation recently! I realized that anyone or no one can be my workout peeps. Whhhhaaaattheheck?? When I do my "pond" workouts (see Nov 22nd blog), I often invite neighbors. If they come, I have peeps. It's awesome! It's making my new world a bit smaller and lovelier every time. I'm meeting and making new friends, I get a partner, it keeps me teaching, I get to help them (which I LOVE!) and I'm working out too! When I don't have a partner, I bring along my trusti
Hey y'all..diets, fads, and quick fixes won't work and never will work. Ever. How the heck can I be sooooo sure about that? Well...I've seen mannnny diets come and go. They don't work because they are SHORT TERM. Your life is NOT short term. And well, ya know...not to sound sassy: your mental, emotional, nutritional & physical wellness is forfreakineverrrrr. Jus sayin. The two really do need to correlate. One could argue that "diet" and "program" are essentially the sa
...while I'm not super religious, this feels good. Love Means Giving John 3:16 KJV 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave . . . You can give without loving, but you can't love without giving. When you love you will give of your time, you will give of yourself, and you will give of your resources. Those who truly love, hold nothing back. The measure of your giving reveals the measure of your love. Love is something we can't see, but we can see the evidence of love in the
Over the weekend, I was hanging with one of my loves after she'd had surgery. I know, give, give. ;) To be honest, I love this woman. Breathing the same air as her makes me the happiest girl. We had such a perfect couple of days. Can she be my Valentine too? I've decided: yes. My Honey is, has been and always will be Mine. My kids too. Yum. That said, my love life wouldn't be the same without my other loves. So, for all of you that Bah Humbug Vday, consider this: It's a LO
