52/365 Medicine

Photobucket

I have finally realized that the one thing that works best for my moods is exercise! I discovered exercise in college and haven't stopped since that time (more than 20 years ago--shhhh). I've been off the wagon for about a year and have just recently started back again. I've already lost 5 pounds with 8 more to go! My reward after I've reached my goal? A visit to a spa in Mexico! I must say it's the perfect incentive to help me roll out of bed and into the gym.

My other favorite medicine? My books and my journal! I usually read 3-4 at a time and always have at least one with me. If I forget to pack my seat with books, I have a book bag that's always in the car and holds 1 or two books. I also listen to books on CD or tape when I drive. I learned this lesson from hubby who always has his trusty book bag of books with him.

Lesson: Always make time to take care of yourself, especially if you're a mom!

Tomorrow: I can't seem to stay on track with my assignments, so we'll just see what life blows my way.

Great inspiration! I need to get to it but always find myself with an excuse... I love the perspective of the weights!

Mmmmm. I love Luna Bars! Unfortunately, can't seem to find my favorite, Orange, anymore. I think they must have stopped making it.

The images are fantastic. Good luck on reaching your goal!
