What began as Project: Move It!, over five years ago, has lead me down paths I hadn't mapped out. I set out to make movement a habit. I ended up leading group fitness classes and participating in 10k races. I've challenged myself along the way and discovered that I can hold a shoulder stand, I can run a mile in under 10 minutes, I can do things I hadn't considered or desired doing in many long years. I have even involved the family in my fitness adventure, and we have participated in races and mud runs together on a few occasions.
I've learned some things, and observed quiet a lot, thus far on this adventure, and I'm just so grateful . But...
I am busier now than I was when this journey of movement began. I do not work out the way I did a year ago. Teaching and going back to school is very time consuming and I had to cut back somewhere. I really want it back though. I miss the way I felt when I was more fit. I need it back. So, I need to find a balance. This is me, searching for balance.

    I finally realized that your name here is Goddess Hips - for some reason I always just saw ship. And while you may be referring to the hips of a goddess, I am sur they are not the size of a boat. emoticon

    You are looking strong and fit!!! Thank you for your comments on my blog. There is something so lovely about being heard and being acknowledged and when you leave a comment on a blog it really is an act of kindness. I appreciate it. How nice you live are close with your mother. My daughter is returning home for the holidays and we are all exciting - including her!. She was born an independent soul and cosmopolitan at that so Redding is not a good fit for her at this time. Nonetheless I would love to have her with me all the time - well almost.

    I would LOVE to try yoga, extreme interest here. I am looking for the following: affordable, beginners classes, and times I can go (weekends/evenings). If you know of any, please let me know! I have been looking but all I can find are on weekday mornings or over $20 a session.

    I didn't add the bridge picture...it was already there when I took over the team. I guess we'll just have to find another one.
