One Day at a Time!

One day at a time is a life saver. I don’t have to know how everything is going to turn out. I just have to breathe. I don’t really have to do that! It just happens. Wow, that is all I do, just breathe. If I do nothing else then I am still OK.

The great thing is, I don’t have to do anything. Nothing has the “have to” prefix, for me. Absolutely nothing! If I think I have to do something, I just change the wording for a more positive result. For example, if I think “I have to do something”, being mindful, I am aware I’m thinking that and I stop and make an adjustment to “I want to do it”. It works! I know what you’re thinking. What if I really, REALLY don’t want to do it? Guess what? I just don’t do it. Problem solved. I know there are people reading this who are thinking that it is unreasonable to just “not do” something that might be very important to me so I say again. The other option is to change the wording to, “I want to do it”. It works. It’s really not that complicated.

I want to face the obstacles in my life!

Either I am able to change the wording to create a more positive feeling, or I don’t do it. The key is to be mindful and vigilant so I can catch myself in the moment. One Day at a Time!

What would I do if I couldn’t fly?

August 25th, marks 54 years since I was born. I have learned to adjust my life to fit my growing needs. How do you like that for positive thinking? Anyway, on to the subject of flying. I have spent my life working out and playing. One of my favorite things to do is low-level flying. Low-level flying is flight without assistance. It still feels like flying but there is no need for aircraft. Frisbee throwing and catching, jumping over fire and running down mountains are a couple of ways I love to fly.

As I get more experienced, I find that I need maintenance in order to be able to keep my flight status. Three things have become a daily treatment for my physical health.

One, I stretch out on a daily basis This is something I have learned is necessary in the last few years.

Two, I roll out on the foam roller. The foam roller massages and releases my muscles and the fascia around them. This is critical to my flexibility.

Three, I use a Foot Rubz ball to massage my feet.

Decision

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

Often attributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, upon further investigation, it seems it was actually written by, William Hutchinson Murray. I don’t care who wrote it, I LIKE IT!

Monday is Mat Pilates

If you’re up for it, I teach a Pilates Mat class at the Paris Health Club on Monday mornings at 7:30. So, you really have to be up for it, and you have to be on time. Anyway, we get the week started with a basic mat class that will warm you up, strengthen your core and make your muscles reach for new levels of long and lean. Not to mention sweat and moan and groan! Join us. And don’t forget to check out Fantone Fitness on Facebook.

Sunday Fun-day

A friend recently commented on my Facebook page, saying that it was cool, and working out looks fun! Who would have thought? I would! Of course working out is fun. I get to move my body in an excited way to accomplish different activities all the while increasing my heart rate and respiration, sweating up a storm and expending calories and energy. That sounds like…well fun! Anyway, that comment made me realize that not everyone thinks working out is fun. So, check out these pics of fun workouts. I hope you are inspired to get out on this Fun-day Sunday and work out too. remember, it can be fun!  

T.G.I.F.F.

Thank goodness it’s Flying Friday! I got to tell you, I’ve been looking forward to posting this for a while now. After a day of rest on Thundering Thursday, I am ready to fly high into today’s workout. I feel as though I can leap over any obstacle in my path. Why? Because I try. That’s really all it takes. Go for it. Sometimes I notice I’m feeling afraid of an event or situation that I’m approaching. I’ve recently decided to turn things around on “Fear”. Here is my new idea. I’m going to use “Fear” to my advantage and every time I realize I’m feeling “Fear”, I’m going to remind myself that “Fear” stands for “Feeling Energized and Ready”. Done! So go out and have some “Fear” on me. Enjoy!

Flying high over fear!

Try harder Tuesdays!

Slipping up the hill, dragging the rock. Trying no matter how hard it is to pull yourself up the mountain of life, is what it’s all about. Find the joy in hard work! That’s the secret.

You’re welcome.
