Finally Living

My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit... it's time to Finally Live like it!

A number of things bring me to this point in my life:

* quit smoking on Thanksgiving of 2011. (My doctor asks if I'm still a former smoker, and I laugh and say that I've "been there done that" and it was stupid so I'm not going back!)

* Dad had a stroke in May 2012. It was terrifying watching as he struggled for words and for basic muscle function.

* My blood ...

* Dad had a stroke in May 2012. It was terrifying watching as he struggled for words and for basic muscle function.

* My blood pressure was deadly. 188/110 alarmed me to the fact that I would have a stroke, too.

* Asking for a seatbelt extender on the airplane is SO humiliating! I am committed to being able to fly to Belarus this summer without having to ask for one.

So here I am, ready to LIVE and not die. I want to be useful to God, not limited physically because of my weight or my health.

emoticon for adding me! emoticon that you started running emoticon last year (Always a plus to find a new activity ya like)!

I always wanted to run and like it, but every time, I would run, I will stop because the entire time I’m thinking, “I don’t like this” and would go back to what I love—walking and dancing!
I’ve read, here and outside of SP, that the best exercise to do is the one you like doing. But how would you know if you don't try it at least.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

So last year, I did Zumba for the first time and found a new cardio love I will never grow tired of. It’s an exhilarating experience… emoticon emoticon emoticon wishes to you!
