My ‘feel good endorphins’ are fluttering around me as I cool down after my gym workout.

It really does make me feel good after I workout.

Some mornings I am at the gym, or weather permitting I am running or stair climbing.

I don’t mind running in the rain, just not a down pour.

My daughter always says, “we aren’t made of sugar”.  haha

Hopefully you are able to choose an exercise today that will release endorphins.

Only do the fitness that you are able to do and remember to enjoy your workouts.

Enjoy your day to the fullest.

Always remember to be grateful for what you have.

It’s The Little Things

In marriage, the little things are the big things.

It’s never being too old to hold hands.

It’s remembering to say, “I love you” at the end of the day.

It’s never going to bed angry.

It’s speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is giving each other a safe place in which to grow.

There is so much to be grateful for in our life. One more I would like to add to that list is, ‘never forget to pray’. I don’t preach religion to anyone as I do feel it is a personal choice if you choose to believe or not believe. I do believe in God~ I do believe in prayer~

I also believe in Heaven~

Have a blessed day.

Always in my Heart

Happy Birthday to my Angel Momma.

I really like to try different spices on my foods, as they add more flavour.  Ginger is one I use all the time. I buy Ginger Root and cut it up in tiny pieces or grate it onto my cereal. It is hot, so love to take a bite of it with a piece of orange.

I was also told that Ginger Root is terrific for inflammation in the body. My upper back, neck and shoulder still aggravate me due to a car accident a few years back. I am hoping the ginger root will do some good for my health issues.

Please remember, if you are under a doctor’s care to talk it over with him/her before you try anything new.

Have a wonderful weekend and thank-you for visiting my blog today.

What Really Counts?

And In The End, It’s Not The Years In Your Life That Count. It’s The Life In Your Years.” ~Abraham Lincoln~

This quote had me thinking while at the gym early this morning.

I was being grateful that at 60 years of age I am able to workout like I do. In the end I hope it will continue to put “life in my years”.

Have a wonderful Monday and please remember you are never to old to do some kind of exercise. Please, If you are new to exercise, always talk it over with your doctor before starting any kind of fitness program.
