Better-Body-Steward, Day 2

I just finished with today's exercises. I did not really want to do them today; I was going to excuse myself by having a "lack of time.". However, as my dear friend Gail reminded me, that reasoning is no excuse. ;) I did do some home chores today, that encouraged me to exercise my body: bending, squatting, lifting, etc. I was glad to be able to implement those things in my daily activities. I always reminisce of my youth, when daily chores and play kept me "in shape." Well, today, I got to do some "getting in shape" activities that were productive in more than one way! However, I knew I needed more activities today. I needed to do my exercising for God's sake, my sake, and for those lifting me up in prayer and/or keeping abreast of my journaling of my daily work outs. Aah, yes, accountability. :) I did the same exercises as yesterday, adding only a bit more reps, as I could handle. I also added some more activity to tone my arms. Tomorrow, I'll be doing some more things, suggested by Dear. I have to "move it, move it!" Today also saw me using my homemade vinegar to clean some walls and glass doors. I loved the results! All natural cleaning, and so inexpensive! I found some recipes for some other products I desired to make. I found and have now successfully used homemade carpet freshener and deodorant. Both are inexpensive, and ease my mind in regards to our health. When I have time, I will gladly share the recipes with you. Alas, dinner and a hungry Dear await. 'Til tomorrow!


  1. I'm working in this area of my life as well. I've started using the body gospel DVD's. I'm gonna try every work out they have on it, but I did not like today's core routine. I hardly felt anything from it. I haven't decided if I'm going to post my work out updates on my blog yet, but it would be great if we could encourage each other. Let me know. Have a good night.

  2. I like the idea of encouraging one another! There are actually some girlfriends & I who have an email "support" group, if you will. We try to email each week & update each other on our weight-loss goals, tips,etc. it's been on hiatus for a few weeks, but should be starting up again, soon! If you'd like in on it, I'm sure they'd be delighted; if you want something different, just email me & tell me. :). My address is moldingintoalady@gmail.com.

  3. Glad to hear that you have been motivated to exercise. I used to exercise 4-6 times a week several years ago, but as of late, I haven't had the desire nor motivation. Oh well . . .

  4. Good for you Renee! I'm so proud! I seriously need to get back into some sort of routine when it comes to exercise. The older I get the harder it is! You are such an encouragement! :)
