Wow. What a statement-->"when Qi is scattered, the person dies."
That makes sense to me.
Because when my mind/energy is scattered, I feel out of touch with my spirit, out of touch with the essence of life. Life becomes lifeless & meaningless. Kind of dead & robotic.
I think I took that sentence in a different direction, but I see it as meaningful in different ways -- but pointing to the same truth.
30 minutes learning form of basic squats and dead lifts using 15 pound dum bells. and some presses and pulls and sit up to round a 30 minute lunch time easy work out.As I improve with form I will increase weights . nice to do 5 simple exercises . so much more fun then doing many many things for a long time....thanks to those who suggested this way on 30bad. Chris and other masters of fitness here....my tendons happy maybe weights is good idea till they are 100% then go back to running 800m....have great day fruity ones

Some pics as promised from the fruitluck:
One handy thing I know the participants appreciated with the farmers mkt (out longest running in the state at over 21 yrs) just a few hundred yrds away
nice pics WL. Thank you!
40 min Spinal Connectivity, an intermediate classical Pilates class, with awareness of spinal alignment, support and flow.
Then celery/spinach juice and some water blended with 2dates, 6bananas, lettuce and a sprinkle cinnamon. Hmm, somehow this turned out a bit too sweet.
- Very busy day after that, feels good to do things without being exhausted. So yes, I feel much better, WL, thank you :) The moment I'm more active mostly tells me that my gut is doing well. An other friend here on 30BaD suggested that the relapse maybe was a clearing out on a deeper level; David Klein somewhere mentions in his book that those can happen.
45 min Power of Breath, lovely yoga+pranayama class with Clara Roberts-Oss. I always love her classes.
Breakfast was 2 strawberries/5bananas/2 dates/water smoothie. Delicioso! I'll try to seperate the greens from the banana smoothies for a while, drink them later with apple+veg. This weekend I had to simplify my meals a bit because I wasn't at home. Maybe this was good for healing and to give new ideas for meals.
Have a lovely day, all! :)
Nice fruitluck impression WL :)
Hi Sita, I just replied to your Qi comment that I didn't get a change to read fully until just now.
Your strawberry smoothie sounded great. I bet I would like it.
Hi Everyone! So happy to see you all here. :)
This morning I went for a walk to the park (30 minutes), then a jog/climb of park steps (30 minutes).
That's all I've got for today.
45 min Max Strom yoga
eve: something brand new for me from the Beachbody group
30 min Chalene's Turbo Fire HIIT
10 min Abs from the same
45 min Power of Breath yoga class again; makes me feel so good.
Fuel until now: piel de sapo melon for breakfast, 1L strawberry/date/banana smoothie later and then more bananas.
Just came back from more than an hour walk in the forest on my flip flops :)
Time for an apple/veg juice.
btw Aimée, was that little bird in the store rescued??
yeah, how bout that birdie?
I've heard of not letting the grass grow under your feet, but rules are meant to be broken. Are those considered "grounding" flops?
began the day with an 18 min barefoot run on blacktop
various pullups 8/5/5/4/4
Inc DB Press 45/11, 9
Back SQ 100/20
Standing rollout progression 15r
3 rounds of KB inspired tabatas off YT including
8x of 55# swings
Celebrated the holiday with a nice family lunch and taking in the new swingin' Spiderman. Recommended!
came back to a short 20 min of yoga
Happy Independence Day to all my American dawgs and Happy Fourth of July to everybody else :)
he-he...cute doggie. Think the flops are grounding, yes - thought it was a nice pic. Could be posted here already or it was a deja vu...
No workout today. It's warm and humid in- and outside of the house. Hats off for you WL, working out in such warm climate! :)
Sita, you are eating toad skin :) "piel de sapo" frog skin melon.
Sita & WL: Oh man, so much has happened & so many attempts to catch him from various pest control companies & then there was me & my friends trying to get in there to catch/set it free. Lots of drama. But in the end the bird won. :) And it is now allowed to live there & run its natural course. The last few times I was there, it seemed to be making itself a birdhouse in the corner by tearing a whole into the ceiling corner. And it's getting a bit chubby too. It's living a human life now -- just eating away & working on its home. :)
Hi Everyone! No workout today, just catching up with work, & spending some time with a friend that just got back in town. It's a low-key day today.
