The Buddha

I just love this picture of the Buddha.  Every time I look at it I feel more at peace.  I have been reading a good amount of Buddhist philosophy recently.  I used to find it dry and unrelatable-  now I find it infinitely helpful and practical.  Funny how our perspectives change over time.

I Am Strong

On A Roll

"How are you feeling?  Good?"  I nodded, "Good."  "Well, I"m going to make you feel not so good!"  My trainer laughed, and thus commenced the latest of my "Death and Destruction" workouts yesterday afternoon.  I could just feel that things were going to go well though.  I had surpassed my best cardio run on the treadmill two days before.  I was rested, fueled up, stretched out, and ready to go. 
Breathe in, breathe out.  You can do this, body.  And I did.  It was...FUN.  Today, I feel like I could take on the world.  Exercise.  Do it!
