Exercise bliss!!!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013



Most of you know by now that I'd been sick for well over a week & it started with a stinky, heavily pollinated plant in my office at work. First off was the killer sinus infection, then "chest goop" as I call it. Boooo to asthma!! It turns everything into "chest goop."

Soooooo, yesterday was my first time at the gym in a week & a half. emoticon I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. I was actually a bit jittery as I changed from my work clothes to my workout clothes. I was emoticon from ear to ear.

When I got on that first machine . . . man . . . total bliss!! I felt STRONG emoticon. My muscles had quite a break & they were ready to rock & roll!!!

After my workout was done, I could almost hear my body singing the Hallelujah Chorus!!



No kidding!!! Never in a million years did I think I'd crave exercise like that. I've come to depend on it as my major stress relief & mood booster. Try it!!! I think you'll see what I mean. It might take you a few months to start the "craving" part, but if you keep at it, the craving WILL come. Our bodies were made to move!!

Use it or lose it!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

I understand the craving for exercise and movement just be careful as sometimes you can over do it when that happens.
I know that our bodies were made to stay active and enjoy life.
Have a blessed journey to better health today

So this is what happened to the Easter Bunny! emoticon No wonder he didn't show up on my doorstep. That's probably a blessing -- I don't need all that candy.

Beware of "fast" food.



Don't forget to eat healthy today. emoticon



Finally, make sure your funny bone is working.



Have a fantastic day!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

One step at a time.

Sunday, March 31, 2013



When you wake up in the morning, be determined. Do what you need to do to work toward your goals. Then, you can rest your head on your pillow at night with satisfaction.



Always focus on how far you've come & how much better you feel.



Remember why you started!! You need to find your big WHY. Keep that in front of you always.



Please, please, please, don't put your happiness off until tomorrow!!



For those of you who celebrate, I wish you a blessed Easter!!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Positive or negative? The choice is yours.

Saturday, March 30, 2013



There was a time in my life when I was a Negative Nelly. To quote my dad, "I wouldn't have been happy if I'd been hung with a new rope." emoticon I'm so glad I'm not that way anymore. I think a lot of it was health issues (this was long before I was diagnosed with breast cancer). I was in pain all the time & didn't know why. I had a hard time getting out of bed in the morning & life just wasn't that grand. It was very difficult to function & I had chronic insomnia. I'm so blessed that the doctor finally figured out what my issue was & prescribed a medication that changed my life.

Being able to deal with breast cancer & still have a positive attitude was monumental!! My doctor said that in order to beat it, a positive attitude was KEY.



Life is so much more fun now!! I enjoy new adventures with my hubby.



Let's not only spread the Spark, let's spread positivity!! emoticon



My turn to spread it:

You all are emoticon !! Thank you for your support & encouragement every single day!! You help keep me motivated! You are a true blessing to me.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

The habit of victory.

Friday, March 29, 2013



We all want to win this "race" that we're on -- not that it's really a race, but I guess you could consider it a very slow race, right? It's going to take some time.

What is victory all about anyway?



Basically, if you want to win this "race" you need to conquer your own desires. Your desire may be to sit every night in front of the TV while you eat a huge slice of cake, but that's not going to cause you to be victorious. You need to work for it.



Challenge yourself:



What are you going to do today that will lead you to victory?

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
