Focusing on Life: Capture a Heart

Sally tells us this week to take notice of all the hearts that end up in life everyday.  I looked past just the shape and thought about "hearts" and came up with a couple of things...

It's the driver of a healthy body.  A racing heart and a sweaty forehead actually feel good.  Sure, it's probably just the endorphins making me feel that way, but it still counts!

It's the passion behind doing what you love.  My friend and trainer, Andi, is following her passion to help people and grow a business.

It all came together on Thursday morning at 0700 when she had me squatting across a room and doing all kinds of things that make it hurt when I laugh the next day.  My heart was racing as I jumped up and down while she yelled at me...well, she actually just encourages me firmly and makes me laugh.  She had me rolling in sweat in the first 15 minutes of our workout.

So, that's us, sweaty and pretty in the gym!  

Our hearts' efforts on display.  :)

  4. Actually Jenn, if you would have tilted your chins just a little closer to each other it would have made a heart, kinda weird but it would have :) I admire your efforts to work out and strenghthen your heart, good for you!

  5. When I told my hubby about this challenge, he suggested taking a picture of him, representing his struggle with an aneurysm (he won.) Healthy hearts are very important!

  9. Thanks for the gentle reminder to take care of our hearts which feed our body...and I agree that your heads together sort of form a heart shape... just my imagination at work again!

  10. I totally lost the meaning of this prompt and looked specifically for "heart shapes" - I really need to dig deeper! Do you ever NOT have fun? No matter what you do, you always seem to be laughing and just enjoying life- it's good to see that!

  11. All of those beating hearts in our life...the true treasures of living!

  12. Wonderful post... But women glow... they don't sweat!
