A balance of Mind-Body-Spirit

I've been missing in action here, ladies ~ sorry! Too much going on in real life. :-)

I have, however, been working out - a day without a workout would be a very sad day indeed for me!

Got the final all clear from my doctor on Monday - back to normal, no cancer, just some minor stuff they can treat. Yay!

Workouts recently ~
Saturday - Turbo Jam Cardio Dance Party 3 - oh, my gosh, the hip hop and old school music in this is cool! So is the anerobic drill - the turbo!
Sunday - Taebo Advanced Live 6. Loved the cardio and standing ab work!
Monday - The FIRM Ultimate Calorie Blaster - step aerobics and light weights and tall box work for those glutes. :-)
Tuesday - Taebo Advanced Live 7 - enjoyed the floorwork and kickboxing cardio, sang along with Berlin "Riding on the Metro", the Sylvers' "Boogie Fever", and "Be What You Wanna Be" and "Pina Colada." :-)
Wednesday - today - did the cardio section from Taebo Advanced live 7, as I didn't have a full hour to work out - the kids and I were out early for an all day work meeting ( and activities for the kids...).

Eating is going well. I am finding inspiration in the book "The Best Life Diet" by Bob Greene - yes, it's the same old stuff but helpful for me to renew. Remembering the WHYS, WHATS, WHENS and HOWs ( how much) of a healthy eating lifstyle, coupled with an appropriate activity level.

Waving hi to everyone - how are ya doin'?

Glad to hear all is well on your end, Leonie! Back to full power-go, go ,go!!
I need to pull out Bob's book again and work on eating while I am trying to exercise. What I put in my mouth can be controlled while life is out of control and I can't seem to get exercise figured out :) I love that book..
Good to hear from you!

Congratulaions and Praise God on your all clear notice, Leonie! Hooray!

You are inspirational to me, in that your workouts are just part of your life and you keep going.. especially after surgury. Gosh, just a bad hair day slows me down! lol

Yes, re-reading the 'old stuff' is helpful... as our brains need the renewal. We forget, or just need the affirmations again.

Hi Anne-

It is hard with houseguests, and complicatd with little ones that need you. If you want some brainstorming on how to bring in more exercise we are here. Everything is in seasons, too. Right now I am in a big exercise season, partially because I have let my weight creep up over the years and decided now is the time to focus. Also my kids are older and I have the time.

Sometimes is less, sometimes is more, but there are ways to bring some exercise in all the time... even just a little goes a long way.

Let us know how it goes!

Thanks for comments, gys.

Anne, Bob Greene jst talks about activity levesl -s o you can start where you are at and even if you don't workout you can stay active - or aim for some workouts, even if not your own particular ideal number of workouts.

The eating part is an ongoing process, isn't it - getting my mind around avoiding mindless eating and making healthy, portion savvy choices 90% of the time..
