Fitness as Spiritual Quest

  1. I’m working towards more fitness, and the little bit I’ve done in the last couple of weeks is reminding me how much fun I had when I used to do it all of the time. I’m looking forward to the day when I can feel that joy again.

      1. I’m going slow right now, but I have been walking a minimum of 2 miles per day…this week, I had a couple of days that I made it to 4 miles. 🙂
        I just want to be shapely and healthy. 🙂

  2. The compulsion to smoke transferred to fitness. You should be a therapist. I trained for a triathlon because a marathon wasn’t enough. It’s the lie I told myself. My girlfriend at the time loved marathons and made fun of my weight. I’ve always been bigger. So, I dumped her and did a triathlon. That’s pretty good of you smoking is the total opposite of fitness and very hard to quit.

    1. Thanks! I’ve thought about (and sometimes still consider) the whole therapist thing. Replacing smoking was a long process and one I probably could’ve sped up if I had been more dedicated…I hope you proved something great to yourself after you completed that triathlon, regardless of who or what drove you to do it. It’s no small accomplishment, and neither is a marathon!

      1. Yep, I’m in the US. I like blogging, but there is an undeniable strangeness about it. Sometimes it feels like, as a blogger, you are part of a community, and you are using your little corner of the internet to build something. Other times, it feels like a bunch of people screaming out into the void. Kind of like social media, which I actually don’t like and don’t spend much time on at all. What do you think?

      2. Your writing voice is unique. I thought you were outside of the states or an ex pat. I see that. That’s a good way to describe it. Like this whirlwind on a house of cards. I do like how we are organic and we connect digitally. It’s pretty weird. 😀

  3. Love this. Fitness helps me mentally almost more than physically, if I feel cranky I work out. Somehow exercise helps me to put things in perspective.
