About Me

exercise is my medicine. I run, swim, and lift weights anything to keep my body in top form. I am an RN, a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. I am grateful for my life and each new day.

learning how to live

Just back from a my morning exercise at the beach and I feel amazing!
I harvested fresh sea breezes, other like minded morning exercisers have beautiful energy, gull cries, salty mist, fresh oxygen and sunshine!

I had a thought
so I know that exercise is medicine
I just need to find the right dose.

just like 650 mg of tylenol cures most of my aches and pains~I know that the entire bottle of tylenol would shut my liver down, I know that the right dose of exercise is also important to discover.

I think that I learned that marathon distances were toxic to me, kind of like that entire bottle of tylenol.

so from now on if I feel low energy I will adjust my exercise to give me a higher dose of exercise to counter that low energy.
I know how important exercise for me I just need to listen to my body and adjust my dose for the day~

awareness is changing who I am becoming.
