The Fourth of July is a great time to pause and celebrate our freedom that is uniquely American! I am a vocal proud American and never cease to be amazed at how careful we are supposed to be in public in hopes of not offending anyone else. I actually had someone say tome that they had to ask CostCo to change the wording on a cake they bought that was decorated with an American flag. The cake had "God Bless America' written on it and they made CostCo take it off. I was sad and amazed that there really are people who believe that way. So, if you are a proud American, enjoy your freedom now, because it seems like things are changing, and not necessarily for the better.
But enough about that, At my workout Saturday morning, I was 55 minutes into a great sweaty workout and my back twinged. So I paused and immediately and started stretching. I have been babying my back all weekend. I skipped my workout yesterday because the muscles were so tight. Then this morning I smacked my foot into a stone baseboard and broke the #3 toe on my left foot. So, right now, I am icing it and skipped my workout today. Oh well, isn't part of the journey accepting challenges that come our way and taking the time to heal? I think so. The comic relief of a broken toe is that my sister broke a toe about 2 weeks ago. I really didn't mean to be a copy cat!
Desire to celebrate our freedom. Dedication to honor the past, our present and our future. Discipline to stop and let the body heal.
