It Sounds Simple

“As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can: by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we’ve been given.” ~Mary Lou Retton

Have a terrific week.

One of my passions is fitness. I will be at the gym at 6:00 in the morning and am looking forward to it.

Find your passion.

Glass Down

Have a beautiful weekend.

A psychologist walked around a room while discussing stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked “the half-empty or half-full” question.

Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?” 

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter.

It depends on how long I hold it.

If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. 

If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm.

If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.

In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens.

Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt.

And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed- incapable of doing anything.”

Remember to put the glass down.

Don’t Lose Faith

“You must not lose Faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”  ~Gandhi

“Do not worry about tomorrow,

for tomorrow will bring

worries of its own.

Today’s trouble is enough

for today.

Mathew 6:34

Just breathe and have Faith that everything will work out for the best.

Make it Routine

Build time for physical activity into your daily routine.

I just make my fitness a priority for me.

Although I was tired this morning I am grateful that I made it to the gym. It is too easy to stay in bed and not go to the gym.

First thing in the morning works great for me.

I feel better after being at the gym.

Do you have a time set aside just for your fitness, throughout your day?

Walk whenever you can instead of using the car.

Don’t Stop

We do not stop exercising because we grow old,

We grow old because we stop exercising. ~Dr. Kenneth Cooper

I only hope to inspire you with all my chatter about fitness and good eating habits especially as we age.

I am a baby boomer and do my best to take care of me.

I am an active gym member 3 times a week.

On the off days I am enjoying the outdoors with a hike or a run.

There are so many of us baby boomers out there. We have to take care of ourselves.

The sun is shining today in my world and it is starting to feel more like Spring.

Enjoy your day to the fullest.
