Cape Diem "To live each day as if it were your last, you would be trying to remedy all the mistakes you had made, all regrets, all the things unsaid. If you live each day as if it were your first, you are freed from all obligations, all guilt, all regret." ~from Breathing Space: Twelve Lessons for the Modern Woman by Katrina Repka and Alan Finger
So I shall do just that... I will not beat myself up for slacking with my exercise and Bible reading. Instead, I will begin anew with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. My friend, Sheila, is my inspiration. She set a goal of logging 50 miles of movement in a month, which she attained. That can be walking, jogging, or running outside or on a treadmill, swimming, biking, rollerblading, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing... you get the idea. Now that's a novel way of approaching the whole get-yourself-in-shape... move it or lose it campaign. I determined that today, being the beginning of a brand new month, would be my rebirth. However, I was anxious to get started and to verify that I hadn't gotten too rusty, so I walked 2 miles yesterday outside in the fresh air. I also read several passages in my Bible and pondered them a while. Time to tie the shoelaces and hit the dirt/pavement combo again... Wanna join me?
