Desire(s)

Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity-

*Sunglasses, hard hats and earmuffs and required today We are going to discuss sex and well-being – Yeah*

Too often in relationships, sex, running, yoga, cycling, whatever. We go with the flow of sailing a steady and predictable course. We believe “things” are going well, great even as long as there are no rough waters ahead: Injuries, setbacks and unnamed surprises We think everything in between the sheets and life must be fine. We’re safe, comfortable, maybe we even think at times that safe and comfortable add up to happiness? Sadly, this is not the case.

Then one day and maybe this day is this morning, someone asks us what you really want out of life, what you really desire? Do you desire to punish your body only to leave your loved ones, wanting?

Embracing vulnerability, I am going to share a list, a list of what I desire – feel free to add to this list in the comments below or share them with a loved one later, either way, only you know what you really want.

A day of not being in pain of some sort or another …
A hand on my lower back and knee that magically heals me …
A gentle hug(s) that last forever …
A smile that makes me smile …
A hand that reaches across to mine during a drive, to take mine …

Notes:

“What the hell is the point of this post before a long holiday weekend, seriously?”

Creating space for yourself to identify what you want, in “whatever” … yourself, your running program, your relationship(s)? Is pretty cool! Gently move closer to a place that feels right, that nourishes your body and spirit rather than depleting it.

Be well this weekend and please take care.

Friday 6 January 2012

You cannot dream yourself into a character: you must hammer and forge yourself into one-

Which one do you want?

The Plan-

Today’s sign of the Apocalypse:  Reality TV

Grown up chat today, so if you are easily offended scurry away now…As the Random Fitness (hell, let’s through all of society under the bus) world evolves into a seemingly more complex, nuanced, and technology driven society, the more disengaged the average person becomes from what’s going on around them and to themselves.  Do you have any inkling of an idea how utterly lazy we are as a society?  Even though we should be more empowered now than ever before.  How about this?  Don’t know something?  Confused?  Hello, Google Machine here we come (we have heard great things about The Google Machine over the years).  It infuriates us here at CultFit HQ when people reject intellectualism and knowing your business as a defense mechanism, to shield their own ignorance or dullness.  People accept the status quo and abundant hypocrisy because it’s easy, it feels good.  Empower yourself to learn as much as you can about yourself, others and more specifically to what we are talking about today:  Living a healthy life and participating in a goal driven workout program.

The Workout-

It’s been rather nice outside so why not break free from the treadmill and try Mother Nature out for once?

Brisk Walk/Run before dawn (preferably) followed by:

A free flowing (effortless) Sun Salutation series followed by:

Peaceful Meditation as the sun rises and bathes you in gentle warmth for the day

Humans, you are doing it wrong.

Notes: 

A nice simple workout series this week to ring in the New Year.  It’s  a long year remember…ENJOY!!!

Sums up nicely what you did to yourself this week.
