When the crown slips

Sometimes I wish that when I was younger I had taken up either ballet or gymnastics. I say that because on many occasions I now find myself less than graceful. I’m familiar with the question, “Did you have a nice trip, Grace?” I’ve been known to walk into parking meters, miss the final step on a staircase, have my ankles buckle while walking in heels, and realize a rolling chair had wheeled itself away once I fell to the floor. All this coming from the girl who used to ride her pink bike by standing on one foot atop the banana seat. Not sure what happened since. (head scratch)

Recently I had another unsanctioned attempt at gymnastics. My petite self was carrying one end of a sofa while my 6’2” male employee carried the other at what I’ve deemed an “unnatural” height. We made it out of the receiving area; however, as we made entrance into the showroom I asked if we could pause for a moment so I could regroup. As I began to put the sofa back to floor, I hadn’t taken into account the leather tufted turtle ottoman immediately to my right. There began my twisting and turning as I fought to keep my feet under me without losing the sofa.

WARNING! Now Exiting the Comfort Zone!

He continues to challenge me to get out of my comfort zone by trying new things, sharing my personal story and His plan for obtaining a healthy body and lifestyle.

Can you hear me now?

My husband has said to me on multiple occasions, “For someone who doesn’t like change, you sure do change things a lot.” He’s right, I don’t like change. What I don’t like is huge, monumental changes like moving, changing jobs, death, illness, that kind of thing. I’m all about changing out my wardrobe. Like yeah, what woman doesn’t? I also like to paint, redecorate and move things around my house. Those are easy and refreshing changes that easily lift my spirits.

On your mark, get set, go!

At this point in my life, I’m not sure why I’ve started, but I have. I’ve started running, as in exercise not running startfinishaway from anything. Unless if being out of shape counts, then yes, I’m running away from that or at least trying to.

In the grand scheme of things, my daughter and I decided to try and run one 5K a month. We each took to our own training rituals. We were Read the rest of this entry »
