Sunday Quotes: Exercise

I couldn’t find any attribution for the above quote, but it sure resonates with me. I’ve been exercising pretty much all my life. I walk about three miles every day and only miss my walk on days when the weather is truly awful. I don’t like gyms, but I work out at home with weights three or four times a week.Continue Reading

I’m a perpetual planner. I just am. It’s about this time of year, late July, that I start thinking, “OMG. It’s almost Christmas!” My partner just smiles at me now vs. trying to argue on behalf of the six months we’ve still yet to experience, because this is an annual exclamation I make.

Then every year, I tell myself that I’m going to keep the Christmas spirit with me all through the year.Continue Reading

Feeling discomfort is part of life. Sometimes, you’re just going to feel out of sorts, weighed down, or just physically or emotionally “off.” Our inclination usually is to try anything and everything to get rid of discomfort.
