Chop Suey, 9.1.17

Movati 8.31.17Magical

Futuristic, a playground for my “Me” time.  I’ve gone back to the gym.  My favourite  place, my get away Movati Athletic … It was time, I’ve been back a couple of days now, and it is wonderful.  Staff have changed, the older carpet has been replaced, still the magic of the place is intact.

Having started with them back in the late 90’s when they opened, it was where I wanted to be.  I went up to the co-ed floor today, a must for me, it means walking up the flight of stairs, there is an elevator, but the whole idea is for me to start rebuilding my whole over-all “body”.

My fit bit was very happy, I finally met and exceeded my goal that I had set for myself.  =^_^=  sparkles went off when I looked at my figures.. Yay!!!!

On my way home from errands, I went into on of my “haunts” and woweeeee   I found a Madame Alexander Doll (2014)  She was not in the best shape, her hair was a total mess, and all frizzy.  Her body was scuffed and marked, but…. never having had one to check out up close and personal, I brought her home.  She has been bathed and washed, and her hair cleaned, but it will be awhile before I get all the knots and frizz under control, IF it can be done.

Took items to the church for the upcoming garage sale, remember everyone, mark your calendars, September 16, Saturday  from 8 am – 2 pm.  1010 Hunt Club, Ottawa,On. Church of Perfect Liberty

Icing on the cake… I got home to find a big happy balloon tied to a floral dish garden.  Thoughtful friends in Australia, reached across the globe, with their love and healing prayers.  Muah darlings, I will write soon.

My husband and I have been overwhelmed with the love and friendship that has been coming our way.  This is a journey that is truly blessed in many many ways.  We our humbled by the love that has transcended the distance of geography and time.  Thank you for letting us know, we are not alone.

PL Precept #15   All is a Mirror

missing – 1 gym bag

PL Principle # 6    I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.

For weeks even months I have talked of getting back to the gym.  Always there was a reason why I just couldn’t get there. Now with the sun shining into my office, and a day facing me with my feeling blah and ho hum, I thought, I’ll go to the gym after my morning meditations etc.  The Virgo/goat that I am, I wanted to organize.  Couldn’t find my gym bag, I looked and just couldn’t find it.  Husband to the rescue, he came and looked with me, wandered down the hall and came back, “its in your office, you can’t miss it”

PL Principle # 3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

“How did it get in there, that isn’t where I usually keep it?” said I with a bit of the morning

surliness.  Wise husband, quietly says he doesn’t know and returns to his morning activities.

PL Principle #10  I will live in true harmony with my spouse.

I come into my office and there it is sitting in the corner waiting to be found again.

PL Principle # 2        I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

punching bag

Are you  someone who goes to a gym…. have you ever considered working out with a punching bag.  The jabbing, kicking and punching gives an immensely powerful take no prisoners feeling, and it also helps with weight loss, co-ordination and strengthening.   Great for sharpening reflexes too.  Find someone to show you the how to’s though before you jump in.

PL Precept 19.  Begin once you Perceive.

Have a great day, thanks for sharing this moment with me… you’ve helped me get going today… thank you, thank you, thank you!

PL Precept # 21. Live in Perfect Liberty…..

Dentro das regras, viva livremente

Express yourself freely, within the rules.

There are many ways to express ourselves, workout, find ways to keep in shape, not only in body but in spirit.  It was when I joined a gym that I got to really work with a punching bag.  Until that time I had only tried cardio kick boxing, where you bounce and jab into the air etc.  Then one day I found myself alone in the lower gym where the boxing classes were held.  No one was around so I tentatively  put on a pair of gloves and walked over to the punching bag.  I could only mimic what I had seen others doing, I made sure no one was around to see me (so conscious was I on looking foolish) before I took a punch at the bag.  It was a soft punch, but it felt good.  I liked the feeling of skipping back and forth and taking aim, then landing a punch.  I maybe played around with it for 2, 3 minutes, it was invigorating.  In those few minutes I had bumped up my heart rate and felt that I should come back and check out a class.  I did go back and what I saw the participants doing was a steady grinding workout, not just having fun doing what I had done, they were working out, warming up all the muscles, push ups, core work, it was total focus on whole body training.

I told myself I’d have to think about it some more and returned to my old reliable treadmill. Still to do on my bucket list is to go back and have another go round in the gym with the punching bag.  You asking yourself what does exercise have to do with self expression?  In my humble opinion it has a lot to do with how we process thought and keeping physically active/healthy. 20 years ago I might have been more pro-active in attending a boxing class.  Now in my “senior” years, I tend to see my body in a different way, I want it to be strong, flexible, and healthy, but I recognize that it has limitations.  Often it is the voice inside my head.

See what this gal is doing, this looks like fun to me.  This I would like to try.  I would also like to try the exercise where they run through tires that are laid out on the ground.  Mind you in slow motion.  When I do exercise, I feel that I am expressing a part of me that wants out, an energy that wants to be released.  Whether running backwards around the gym, or doing karate kicks while I do upper body punches, I’m  being active, I’m letting my body work out the kinks from spending hours at a PC.  The dialogue is with me, myself and I.

When we learn to express ourselves freely and vivaciously, we feel better about ourselves, and we radiate an inner calm that benefits not only ourselves, but all around us.
