After a week away and a few days off due to laziness, I returned to the gym today.
I spent thirty minutes on the treadmill and did some core work.
Then I did an arms and legs workout with NK Body Philosophy. At some point during the evening ahead, I will stretch to March Madness.
Hopefully this marks the beginning of a routine.
Now if I could just do something to restrain my eating …

The workout schedule has been spotty. But today brought stretching and core work with NK Body Philosophy late this afternoon.
Additional stretching followed this evening. The effort continues.
No single poem,
says all that needs to be said,
expresses all people feel and know,
encapsulates everyone’s experiences,
yet still we write,
we scribble and type,
smashing letters together and
trusting our inadequate words
in ways we do not understand
nor ever could predict
and somehow lead to other words,
shaped in other poems
that describe other realities.

To the grave from the cradle
run, roll, dance,
strut, stagger, and shuffle
until we can move no more
and we are welcomed home
and love remains.

Check out this book by my friends Elisabeth Lee and Grace Ji-Sun Kim. “Learning to appreciate and care for the people around you is an irreplaceable feeling. This book took a whole village to create and the process was not exactly an easy one. Nevertheless, it formed a special bond and it evolved into a piece of memorabilia that my mother and I now get to treasure.”
