simply fit

for everyone out there trying to shed a few pounds or convert a 
few pounds to muscle, my friend has started a blog on nutrition 
and exercise.  sounds awful, huh?

but, it's not!  she makes it so fun and gives some really great tips 
about things i don't want to research.  she's also super nice and 
accessible, so if you have any questions, just ask away!

when i started working out with her, i looked just like myself, 
but now i look like jennifer aniston.  :)

it's sort of annoying.  i can't even go to the grocery story any
more.  autographs, paparazzi . . .

just click here:  simply fit!

"beloved, i pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in
good health, just as your soul prospers."  3 john 1:2


sticky situations

i have been reading a fascinating book, called the tipping point.
it would have been such help to me when i was raising my children,
because one of the premises is that little ones pay attention to what
they understand not just things that excite them.

ph.d's studied pre-schoolers while they were watching "sesame street"
to monitor when they became distracted.   they assumed that the kids
would look away if the show couldn't keep their attention, or if an
outside stimulus beguiled them.

what they discovered, instead, was that the children attended to what
they could understand, but looked away when something didn't make
sense to them.

think of all the things we say to our children:  "keep your eyes peeled,
don't count your chickens before they hatch, what goes around-comes
around."  it's no wonder they aren't paying attention to us!

they can't understand us.  "give me understanding, that i may keep
Your law . . . "  psalm 119:34
