New Boot Camp 5:00 a.m.

Well, Another wonderful boot camp is off and running. The participants are so excited when they arrive. Some don't even speak until the class is over ( You know who you are ). Others take pics and blog about their journeys ( they are trying to butter me up ). None the less, we are having a good time. I am so inspired by people who value their health and are willing to sacrifice time for themselves. It is hard to carve out time for ourselves in this past paced life we lead, it is important though. We also need to take some time and shut down. I used to work with "emotional kids". When they were feeling out of control, they would opt to go on shut down. This allowed them the priviledge of being alone, no media, just them and their thoughts. WOW, what most of you would give for a day like that, no responsibilities, no errands, no drama, just peace. Jesus would take the time to retreat, and we should " Be still and know that I am God ...". Take some time away to reflect, part of being fit is to have a healthy spirit too. If we were seeking a mind like Christ, we probably wouldn't have as many other issues to deal with.

Oh, and for all of you who make fun of my eating habits, I did just pick out little chuncks of cookie dough in some Ice Cream that the naughty Grandparents bought my kids. See I have no self-control, food at my house talks to me. How scary is that ? I chased it down with an organic egg and a piece of genesis bread.
