Rainbow I saw while driving to work this morning

I woke up this morning feeling a little less than Fabulous.  I blamed it on the early alarm clock (set for 4:45AM so that I could get a little cardio in before starting the Nursing Home at 6:30)  I did my cardio and felt STRONG, but a little “Off”.  This feeling would stay with me for the entire day!!  I had some Awesome highlights!!  For example, one patient told my 2 nurses and me that we were a Beautiful group of ladies!! (So Sweet)  I also got to share in one of my friends process of “evolving” which is pretty darn cool to witness.  It just makes me look forward to my own Evolution that much more!!  It wasnt until around 10:15PM that I “Faced” my New “Life Lesson”  The reason I was feeling less than the best…. The Reason is that I am an “OMITTER” 

OMIT~  To leave something or somebody out:  to fail to include or mention something or somebody deliberately or accidentally

I will leave out little tidbits to “Avoid” conflict!!  (I also had a friend call me an “Avoider” today, but I will discuss that in a future post).  It was a Dear Friend that pointed this out to me tonight (That I am an omitter).  She handled me with TOTAL CARE.  Before enlightening me on what she later told me I already knew (she was correct) She asked me if I was “open”.  Open to hear, open to listen, open to share, open to GROW….. My response was YES!!!!!  We “spoke” for a while and I “Heard” every word.  Armed with the tools that the “Lesson” taught me, I was able to apply the knowledge and the lines of communication were repaired….. I’m still unsure of what the future holds, but I’m extremely hopeful….Thank You, Angel!!!! *Hugs*

Have “YOU” learned any “Life Lessons” recently?  If so, please share….Let’s learn TOGETHER!!!! 😉

 FRIDAY APRIL 16,2010

Sitting at home, relaxing after a crazy day at the nursing home, my doorbell rings….I was told to be on the lookout for a package that should arrive by 3!!  As I scoop my 2 dogs up in my arms, I look at the time….3:20PM!!  I begin to smile!!  Sure enough, it’s the fedEx guy!!!  Yipee!!!!  I sign, close the door, and tell @jeninRL (who is on the phone) that I just received my first Birthday gift of the year!!!  Once opening the box, I started with this…..

 

There was the cutest singing card!!! JUST PERFECT!!

To TRULY know me is to know that I am a CHEERFUL GIVER!!  It comes naturally!!  What is hard for me, is Receiving!!  I will go out of my way to avoid the situation!!  THIS is my current life lesson!!  To be a gracious, cheerful receiver!!! Reiki teaches you to open your heart!!  I am LEARNING to OPEN my heart to ALLOW others to show ME love as I so willingly and easily show Love to them!!  When I saw the “Goodies” in this Birthday “Care Package” I was not only speechless, But MOVED TO TEARS!!!!  Not only moved by the abundance of the generosity, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, that it was the gift of REST!!!  PEACEFUL SLEEP!!  Something that eludes me 90% of the time!!!  This was the contents in the Bag:

Lavender Vanilla "SLEEP" Massage Oil, lotion, candles,etc

I tried my best to find the words to Thank Lori for the gift.  As a second gift to me, she simply Blackberry messaged me “No words necessary..ENJOY”    Lori, you are SUCH A GENTLE SPIRIT….So today, in this post, I want to say…..

THANK YOU, My Friend…….

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…..

Me and Carla (@MizFitOnline) At the Disney Princess Half Marathon

 

Another wonderful weekend in the history books!!  I have 2 important blogs to get out this week!!  My FabFattie Cruise post and my Fitbloggin post!!  I think the posts that have pictures to add tend to scare me a little!!  I’m such a slow typist as it is and adding the pictures takes me FOREVER!!!!  I also had many action shots to add to this post BUT quite frankly, the picture above tells the story!!  This picture was taken when I went to Orlando to see @MizFitOnline (If you click on her name and it goes to her site, I want you to know that SHE Taught me how to do it!!!  Hey Carla… I DID IT!!! *Proud Smile*)  Carla taught me how to add links at #Fitbloggin!!!  More details later…in THAT post!!!  So, Carla, @workoutmommy and @AskWifey participated in the Disney Princess half Marathon!!!  They ALL did AMAZINGLY well!!!  When I go to see my friends compete, I am content just feeling the energy of the race and catching a glimpse of my friends in their glory!!!  PLUS, I usually meet some really cool spectators along the way!!  It’s a WIN/WIN!!!  This race was no different!!  I took my family up to Orlando.  We stayed in one of the Disney Resorts and went to Animal Kingdom!!  On the day of the race, they slept in while I went to the finish line at Epcot!!  I had my 2 Blackberries and my ipod and off I went!!  Carla was so freakin fast, that she blew by me!!!  Once she finished the race, she called me and asked me where I was!!  After a few texts and calls, she made her way out of the VIP tent (after running her first half marathon) JUST to meet little ole me!!!  I find myself getting a little choked up as I think back to the meeting because she CHOOSE to make the effort!!!  Many had gone back to the room because of fatigue, aches, pains, exhaustion TOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE)…..But NOT MIZ….. SHE STAYED!!!!  Honestly, to know this woman is to love her!!!!  I ALWAYS knew she had a gentle soul, but at THAT MOMENT, it was confirmed!!!  True to Carla form…she would not let me focus on her….In the middle of all the hugs…she asked me…”What is the One thing that you must do to reach your goals…to have SUCCESS?”  She soooooo caught me off guard with that question!!!  This meeting was supposed to be about her!!!  Well…..Let me just say that her words echo in my ear daily!!  Whenever I start to get a little off track (Like this Saturday)  I ask myself… WHAT MUST I DO TO HAVE SUCCESS?!?  I MUST PUT ME FIRST!!!!!!!!   Thank You, Carla!!!  For Keeping me in line and having my back!!!!

WHAT WILL “YOU” DO THIS WEEK TO HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS?!? 

This morning…. I RAN!!! 😉

 I had an amazing weekend!!!  It started out on Friday!  After an AWESOME day of  Feet and #FollowFridays, we headed up to Tampa to see “How To Train your Dragon”  in Imax 3D!!  This was a very cute movie!!  The ending disturbed me a bit, being a podiatrist and all, But it was very entertaining!!! (YES, I’M A BIG KID!!)   Once we left, we went down to the square (picture above).  You could hear the music blaring from 2 night clubs!!  2 songs stuck out….”Planet Rock” and “Don’t Stop Believing”  I Love them both for different reasons!!  We had the kids with us so no clubbing that night….BUT I will be going back!! 😉  Then, On Saturday, I was reminded how AMAZING  my Tweethearts are!!!  @FabFattieShan and @nomorebacon ran a 5K for Autism and made some PR times!!! WELL DONE, YOU 2!!  I was also impressed with @ShrinkingJeans!!  These Ladies AMAZE me DAILY!!!  They are in the process of Raising money while training for a half-marathon for  Team In Training!! @LissaJoy smashed an 8 mile long run, @ReallifAdv ran almost 7 miles while dealing with a foot injury and MY SHERO @Christieo ran on a #TreadmillInTheMall ALL DAY SATURDAY For 26 miles!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!
