Season Finale of Grey's Anatomy

Just finished watching the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy!!!!!  Let me just say….WOW!!!!!!!  If you were on Twitter, you MIGHT have seen some naughty words fly OUT OF MY MOUTH and ONTO THE TWITTER SCREEN!!!!  If you witnessed this, please forgive me!!  This episode was SO INTENSE!!!  It had me on the edge of my seat THE ENTIRE NIGHT!!!!  I won’t give any spoilers…. Instead, I will share with you that many of my patients refer to me as “Dr. Bailey” It COULD be because we are both African-American female Doctors with “Pleasantly Plump” Booties BUT I prefer to think that it’s because we are both BRILLIANT and KICK ARSE at what WE DO!!! *Huge Cheesy Smile*  Any who, there was a scene that TOUCHED me DEEPLY…. The scene where Dr. Bailey took “him” in her arms and said “You Are Not Alone” … AMAZING PERFORMANCE!!!!  In the midst of my TEARS (yes…there were many tears) I thought about the fact that, just 8 hours earlier…. I received a video from a friend…. a song I Love… that took on a new meaning….

Do You Believe In Coincidence?!?

“YOU ARE NOT ALONE”

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!!! 
 
THANK ALL OF YOU FOR LOVING AND SUPPORTING ME!!!!! XOXO

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

and away, I go.... (1 mile across)

Counting my BLESSINGS (this sunset being one of them)

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

FINISHED! No medals or crowds,Just ME and This Sunset....

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!!! 😉
