Dust yourself off...

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

I noticed the date on my last entry and am a little ashamed. I really wanted to commit to this 100 percent. The last few weeks have really knocked me down. I lost someone very dear to me, very suddenly about three weeks ago and it has put things in a tailspin of sorts.
This year that began with so much positive intention has just thrown one road block after another my way. Someone told me it was God testing me, but I don't believe that. He lifts you up, right?
Faith meanderings aside, my goal for this month was "lift heavy"; how could I have anticipated that would be both in the weight room and in my psyche? Deep.
I have been plugging away. Running 2 or 3 times a week and today my muscles feel all shivery with the exertions of lifting heavier weights. I surprise myself with what I am capeable of...yes, in life and in the gym :)
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments. I feel both blessed and encouraged by your words. I would like to get back to business with this blog for you and for me.
Have a beautiful week and may you surprise yourself with your abilities to "lift heavy" when you are called upon to do so. emoticon emoticon
