We can Work it Out

I go do yoga, walk, weight training machines, and swim at least twice a week. And, make no mistake, I thoroughly enjoy it. I feel betterand move better. And I gain a well-being, optimistic state of mind. Now, some days , I have to admit, I’m dragging my butt up the stairs for yoga. And when something comes up and I can’t go, I secretly think, Yay, I’m off the hook, I get to rest! It’s human nature to want to just do nothing!

     Well, today I Really had my “comeuppance.” There I was, walking briskly as I could, using my arms and after a while, I noticed this little, thin white haired lady. She was walking around the track with a walking cane with feet. And she was keeping the rail next to her left, for extra safety. Anyhow after a couple of rounds, my three to her one, I thought I wanted to commend her on her dedication persistence. So, I took out my earphones and told her, “Good morning. You’re doing a great job!” She replies,”Well, my doctors tell me I need to keep walking. I’m 85 and I need to keep walking.”  I respond,”Well, keep it up! That’s so true. We all need to keep walking!” 

As I continued my walking, I was profoundly touched. I mean, here I am ,67 yrs, and I’m griping and moaning, looking for excuses to skip now and then…and I watch her moving her feet one foot, then the other, slowly, faltering, but steady as the ticking of a clock . Not as fast as a clock, but just as reliable as an old pocket watch. My heart is full of love, compassion, and gratefulness. Love for a strong woman, compassion for her dauntless task, and gratefulness that I decided to say a few words of encouragement to a fellow “worker outer” and ended up being a boomerang that inspired me! I thought, “if she can do it, I have no excuses!” I pray that I will be as happy and determined to stay moving (when and if) I reach her age. πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒΉπŸŽ©hats  off to a beautiful soul!!!!

Life on a Merry-go-round

Sometimes it seems as if I’m on a merry- go-round…🎠 

     Okay! I think I’ve found the perfect subject…losing weight, exercising, and getting healthy! Reinvent myself and my habits to reach a healthy weight. 

It all started last Friday . I was in a dr office and across the room was this poster that proclaimed all the good reasons and benefits of gastric surgery. Lose weight, walk lighter, lessen your asthma and shortness of breath, lower blood sugar, improve sleep , and lower high blood pressure. WOW!! And all you need is this one simple procedure that will make all those issues better. So, I decided ,right then and there, that’s it, I’m gonna DO this! I grabbed the brochure and soon Began navigating the web. I always research every aspect in order to make a fully informed decision. EKzkkmrmmxrmxrmx

The SandBetween My Toes

I’ve loved the beach since I was in my mothers belly! It’s just like Cajun music, I heard a lot of it while my momlived in Louisiana. What’s not to love? The waves creeping in and flowing back out, always to be depended on. And the way your feet sink into the wet sand. Oh yeah, what about all the digging and burying going on? Fantastic!!! Always go to the beach and feel the breeze and get your feet wet. And the most amazing and enjoyable pastime is watching your children discover all these secrets of the beach that only the “young at heart and dreamers” can appreciate.

Thank you, God. πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒΉπŸ˜˜
