Motivation...

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly! - Stephen R. Covey

    The best motivation comes from within...not when someone makes you!

    Absolutely. Memorial Day has a completely different meaning for me now. My daughter passed from a terminal illness on Memorial Day weekend 3 years ago. Ironically, my fiancÚ's grandfather, who was military, passed away Memorial Day weekend 11 years ago. Crazier than that is that their gravesites are in the same cemetery and face each other and my daughter passed before we began dating.

  Thanks for the great reminder of what the holiday is about. Thank you to all who are or have served to preserve our freedoms. Special thanks to my dad for everything he did for me, he will always be my inspiration.

Crossfit and Play date!!

Friday, May 24, 2013

This morning I attended the 6:00AM Crossfit class at our gym... I am very fortunate that one of my former students and her finace are very dedicated and educated when it comes to this form of fitness... So today being my FIRST day... she came and worked side by side with me for the entire program!! I am not very good when it comes to certain moves, exercise, which she knows.... she was so patient with me... the student has become the teacher!!! :) However, I'm not sure if I could've gotten through the workout without her... my kids purchased me a 30 day Crossfit package... during this thirty period I shall see if it's for me or not... I LOVE to work out... but also like to ENJOY what I'm doing... not sure I can say I enjoyed it today, but I certainly enjoyed working with Lori.... perhaps my attitude towards Crossfit will change as I endure..... The workout was supposed to be 40-60 minutes... it took me an hour and twenty minutes... I'm okay with that... afterwards I stopped by our park and got an almost six mile walk in... :)
Has anyone else tried Crossfit? I would love feedback!!!

Getting ready to hit the showers, as I have a lunch/playdate with one of my six year old grandsons at 11:00 today!! Love summer time!

    I'm not familiar with Crossfit at all, but I do know that the more you do something, the easier it gets. Just hang in there. I am sure you will start enjoying it soon.

    Good for you! Isn't it great when the roles reverse? I had the opportunity to play in a pit orchestra for a musical. I sat right next to one of my former first graders who is now getting his PhD. We had a blast for a week! emoticon

    CrossFit is a great way to work out! It IS hard, so I had to ease it very gradually and am still pretty slow, but I get better every week,

    The bootcamp classes I attend at my gym are similar to Crossfit and I love it. I love body weight exercises and trying new things. Enjoy!

  Agree completely. I have 11 grandchildren and they all bring joy to our lives. I am blessed to be able to watch the youngest, my 10 month old grandson, twice a week. They keep me feeling young! emoticon

    Grandchildren are a blessing, a gift from God!! Mine (32 month old) called me today, while I was in the shower. Left me a voice mail, singing Happy Birthday. You can hear my daughter in the background coaching her. I play it over and over again!

Thanks for sharing today!!
