APRIL 14, 2010

12:01 AM…..This AMAZING Day began!!  I had 2 missions for this day! 1.  Be the first to wish my Dear friend Lori happy birthday and 2.  receive my first Reiki attunement.  The first mission was accomplished with perfect timing!!  Staying  up this late has its drawbacks.   I OVERSLEPT for my workout!!  No worries (I thought to myself) I will get in my cardio after work.  I had a hectic day in the Health Center (as always).  I left around 2:30 and headed home to get mentally prepared to receive my Reiki Attunement.  I changed into relaxing attire and called my Dear friend @dailykat . She is my guide/teacher on this journey.   After we spoke, I went to my relaxing spot, set up as she suggested.  I relaxed, grounded myself , and accepted the Reiki Attunement from Kat.  Ahhhhhhhh……The EXPERIENCE was, in a word…FANTABULOUS!!!!!  I felt more ALIVE, more ENERGETIC, More RELAXED than I have in a VERY LONG TIME!!!!!!  I looked on my blackberry in the group and saw that My Dear friend @kthenb had just completed a 5K…FOR FUN!!! I also knew that my “Twin” @teetee_71 was crushing it on the bike at the gym!!  Feeling BRAND NEW and completely and totally INSPIRED, I decided to catch the sunset 5 minutes from my house and walk/jog a 5K!!  I DID IT!!!  It was BEAUTIFUL!!  I took  ALL OF YOU WITH ME!!! 

The Beginning of my "Personal" 5K (Wednesday 4/14/10)

Counting my BLESSINGS (this sunset being one of them)

Not a worry , pain, nor fear.....not now....only PEACE....

The Sunrise on my moonlit path


(Sunday night Blackberry IM conversation) @slorunnermom :  I’m going to get up at 6AM to get in my run.  Me:  OK, I will get up too!!!  So, the next morning (Monday) I woke up at 5:30 and headed to “The Green Bridge”  to do Day 1 Week 1 of C25K  (yes, for the millionth time 😉 ) 


Heading up the bridge with "Baby" By Justin Bieber in my ear



On the way back with "Daddy's Home" playing on the ipod


The birds were chirping!  The palm trees were blowing!  The waves were crashing!  The Dolphins were jumping….It was HEAVENLY!!!!  I am so happy to be back at it!!!  I missed my AM workouts!!! This was an excellent start to my Loooooooong Monday!!!!  Its my 12 hour day giving health care to a rural underserved area in Arcadia, FL.  Approx. 2 hour commute (one way).  After my AM cardio, I was on #gruve Yellow and well on my way to green!!!  I had a delicious green smoothie for breakfast and a Wonderful salad for lunch!!  After my lunch, and before the rush of the PM patients, I took a short stroll across the street in the church parking lot.  It was a Beautifully sunny day with trees to shade my path…. Dare I say, it was a  Marvelous Monday! 

Around 8 PM, I said goodbye to the staff, headed out with my driver, and hit the dark winding road home while listening to @TwoFitChick and a microphone (My favorite part about my Monday ride) (He Carla and Shauna, Deana likes you too!!! 😉 To my surprise, I came home to THIS…… 

Waiting at home for me after a long day.... Ahhhhhh.... 😉


I am TRULY BLESSED in SO MANY WAYS!!!!!   Its Time to close my “Angel Eyes” and “Dream A Little Dream” 

Thank You for Taking this journey with me!!  Until next time, I will leave you with this video…..
