Have A New You By Next Year…..Literally! Plus Free 2017 Events


I was aware that the body is always replacing/renewing itself, but I didn’t know the specific time periods for certain parts, …..like the stomach lining rebuilding in ONLY 5 DAYS and DNA renewing itself EVERY TWO MONTHS. Wow, pretty amazing! If you really let this sink in, it makes you realize we should never feel like some current condition or health issue is written in stone and can’t be changed for the better. Consider what might be possible between now and the end of the year if you really work with your body’s amazing ability to rebuild itself!

      My pleasure. My desire to share information and resources that I think might be helpful to others is why I have a website and 2 blogs. 🙂 So knowing you found something I posted useful is very gratifying for me. So thanks for taking the time to leave your comment!

    Hi Zirah 🙂 Thank you! ❤ I am thinking about signing up for the 7-day Urban Monk series and bookmarked the exercises page. I've been in the winter sleepies. I think I will be out of them soon. I decided that this year I would let myself sleep instead of trying to up my energy level with caffeine as I have done in the past. More exercise would be good, but I have some kind of resistance to exercising inside and it has been too cold outside except for a few mornings out with the camera. I was thinking the other day that it is funny how when spring arrives, I forget what I feel like in the winter. The winter slow-down is real. I don't know if it is better to respect it as part of my natural cycle or keep trying to find a way around it. The busy-busy-busy part of my mind thinks I need to be more peppy. 🙂

      I can totally relate to all you said, except I usually don’t do well w/ caffeine, so I would normally try other ways to up my energy. I think the slow down in winter is part of our natural cycle and we definitely should honor what our body wants/needs/organically does. That’s where listening closely to the body and turning down the analyzer/judgment part of ourselves (and the busy busy part/inclination of our society in general) comes in handy. My usual form of regular exercise is long walks, but the weather lately has been extremely cold (below zero at times, w/ the wind chill factor, plus over 6 in of snow the other day), so I have been relying more on some indoor stuff….like the rebounder a friend passed along to me, some yoga stretches, a little planking, and the 5 Tibetans. p. s.Fortunately I don’t think the exercise page/link and the 7-day reboot are time sensitive, in that you can start them now or when you feel the urge. 🙂

        I saw that there was winter weather out your way. I am happy to hear you are doing alright. 🙂 I thought about a mini-trampoline after reading the article in your post a few months ago. I haven’t had much success with my attempts at indoor exercise, though, so I haven’t tried it yet. I have tried a mini-stepper a couple of winters and couldn’t manage enough enthusiasm for it and ended up donating the stepper. I also tried exercise DVDs, but that didn’t last either. 🙂 I like walking as well. I think it is the out of doors that makes it enjoyable. Until a year ago, I was running regularly. Running time was taken over by photo time and now I feel intimidated by starting up again. It is something I only do outside and maybe when spring arrives I will try again. Right now, I am making a point to stretch every day or almost every day and do simple dumbbell exercises to strengthen my arms. It will be a lot easier to hold the camera steady when my arms are stronger. 🙂

        HA! I had to laugh at the comment about doing dumbbell exercises so it will be easier to hold the camera steady. And I was fortunate that my friend couldn’t fit her rebounder in her vehicle when she moved a number of months ago to AZ, so I became the grateful beneficiary. It can be boring if you’re doing long stints on it, but I try to do at least a short period almost daily because it’s so good for the lymph system.
