It's Wednesday! Hump Day!
I got the invitation to join the Sept. Nike+ Challenge from Lilla this morning. I'm gonna have to try out my new sensor and make sure it works! I'm sure it will...what are the odds of receiving two defective sensors??
My new running shoes fit well and feel really good. They are uglier than sin, but as I told you before...they were only 24.95! Discontinued model--probably because they were so Fugly, no one wanted to wear them. I SWEAR they glow in the dark!
Did my upper body today. My shoulder muscles--the ones down the side of your neck--are those the Traps??? Anyway...they feel really tight. Any ideas for loosening them up a bit. Also, I noticed that my shoulders tend to slump forward, probably because I sit at a computer all day at work. How can you fix that? Is is a chest thing or a back thing?
I got the best book! It is written by Alissa Cohen, and it's all about Raw Food. Some of the recipes are to die for, others sound like you'd die eating them! LOL!!
Anyhoo...I got a lot of great info from the book. I am moving more and more towards the Raw way of life. Baby steps to be exact. I do green smoothies in the A.M. some fruit before lunch. Then lunch is usually a salad packed with all kinds of veggies. I am still having some cooked foods for dinner, but even that is losing it's appeal. It's hard to dismiss all the "After" stories of people that have healed themselves of disease, obesity,and aches and pains of all kinds. I read about one woman that went to THIRTY SEV-EN doctors and NONE of them could help her. She finally went to a naturopath who tested her hair. She had LEAD poisoning and was actually on the verge of DEATH. Within a week of Raw eating she was feeling better. Who says that nutrition can't cure your body!?
Bad news.....I found out that my son David may be deployed to Iraq in October. I am NOT happy about that! My son Jacob says that I need to trust God and know that he will be allright. I said, "God may be his father, but I'm his MOTHER! and I don't like it one bit!" I do trust God. I know he will take care of my baby...after all David is his baby too! I hope that didn't sound too weird, but I'm sure you know what I mean!
