Earlier today I lifted weights so now I'm in a nice, mellow, tired place. My mind really unkinks itself when I get a good workout in, and I feel what it must be like to be really spiritually evolved, like a Buddha.
Shoulders are a little achy so I might take some ibuprofen.
I'm listening to Energy Anatomy by Caroline Myss (pronounced "mace") on CD when I'm in the car and also reading The Anatomy of the Spirit when I'm not. Both cover similar material -- there are some really interesting ideas about the way we use our spiritual power and how it affects our physical health. I'm really learning a lot from them, though at times I get a little skittish thinking that she's blaming people for getting sick... still trying to figure out how to resolve that.
I'll be curious to see what she has to say about overweight/obesity, though I'm guessing it will turn out to be a 3rd chakra issue -- that's where the belly is, and that chakra also has to do with self-esteem, personal power, and how we relate to people.
P.S. Weigh-in is tomorrow at noon. I feel like I've had a pretty good week:
Points over allowed -- 12 (not great but better than the 28 I had last week)
Set a new goal of eating 3 fruit servings and 4 veggie servings each day and made it most days
- Tuesday: biked 93 minutes, walked 20
- Wednesday: ran 20 minutes, lifted weights, walked 25 minutes
- Thursday: biked 60 minuts, walked 40 minutes
- Friday: lifted weights
- Saturday: ran 46 minutes, did 45 minutes of gardening
- Sunday: biked 60 minutes
- Monday: lifted weights, swam 60 minutes
We'll have to see what the scale says, but I think I did well.
