First Thing is First

The first thing that I want to say is, “Good morning, and I love you.”
The next thing that follows will be a kiss on the forehead before I hug you.

Are you well? Did you sleep okay? Are you ready to start the day?
Always give more and put forth the effort to score; this after you pray.

There are many optimum ways to start the day.
Choose one and hone it; write-in-stone some time to play.

Noon will be here in a minute, don’t forget to feed your soul.
Consume raw fruit and veggies to stave off viruses and colds.

Drink lots and lots of water, for you are composed of 60% of it.
Heed life wisdom, if indeed life, you love it.

Hug every day that you awake, refreshed, and in good health. Lay low and pray for others; it’s okay to live a little stealth.

If we pray one for another, then how can we fail?
I stay in “W” mode; I’ve no time to chart an “L.”

The evening will surely come and award us another day complete.
We’ll thank God for our health and the strength to stand on our own feet.

Nothing is to be taken for granted; every second is precious and sweet.
Your time is appreciated here. Without you, there’d just be me.
I gotta’ thank thee. xo.

Monday’s are always sweet and are the perfect starting point,
I’m Qui
bidding
breakfast & love to thee at this opportunistic joint.

Yoda and Yoga

The two have more in common than just the sound of their name. Both are in a relationship with the force of the body and wisdom. I’m not a die hard STAR WARS fan but I do love Yoda.

β€œWhen nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.”

Yoda, Return of the Jedi

wise-is-yoda

Very true that quote is, which is exactly why I’m on the chase to sculpt my body into
something fantastic this year. I’m quite excited fitness. I’ve been working out on an average of 6-days a week. I could probably stand to cut back, but honestly, it’s not strenuous workouts. I hone an elliptical machine for no less than 65-minutes straight each morning. If the latter of the day permits me time, I squeeze in an even lower impact 20 (+) additional minutes– (moderate walking speed). The elliptical machine works my arms and legs simultaneously and the caloric burn is unreal. So I wasn’t put off when I started to get a little lower back aggravation.
Working out 6-days a week is nothing to scoff at.
The lower back pain wasn’t persistent or too, too bad, but it was often enough for me to start researching stretches and things I could possibly do to alleviate it. Because the elliptical machine works both the upper body and lower, I’m also experiencing muscle tightness in my shoulders and between my blades. It doesn’t help that I naturally hold tension in my shoulders. There is no room for additional taut in my trapezius muscles.

It is wise to know thy body, Yoda is right. In search of non-medicated muscle relief (so that I can get back to my fun and awesome workouts), I came across many suggestions of muscle stretching and lengthening via Yoga. I’m all in!

If wisdom is on the table – I’m trying to eat it.
Once knowledge is conquered, I’m down to seed it.

I’m glad you dropped by and decided to read it.
Yoda and Yoga are categorized wisdom. I need it.

Yoda and Yoga are my go-to’s when I’m looking to dimensionally elongate,

Happy weeks end to thee – I’m excited about ‘the stretch’ of it – and couldn’t wait. πŸ˜€

You Seen Her

Serena Wms DID THAT | GIPHY

Yesterday’s theme song was: Go Serena! Go Serena! Go Serena! Go Serena!
Viewers tuned in, her family and friends…the open/the close: we seen her!

At every match on everyday
Serena Williams had her say…

It sounded like a grunt,
or the sound made at a football punt.

The audience always dig’s em.
That’s the resonance of a Williams...

Raised in The US OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP family

New York and the Arthur Ashe Stadium was the perfect setting
for the legendary racket’er to ball and blow up Vegas betting.

You Seen Her, I saw her, the whole world watched and listened.
History served us well as young Williams mastered ball-dishin.’

And there was nary a “man” on that court πŸ˜›
Serena’s got amazing balls. Tennis is her sport.

A G.O.A.T. scales mountains and when the top is reached it reigns over all.
Williams scaled the courts and brought life to the sport for two decades before putting down the ball.

Peepher close after the last dance, y’all:

WE LOVE YOU, SERENA!!
