my Body is Strong, the power of the body & sometimes, weakness of the mind

Following a good 55 minutes meditation, I looked up the window and saw the sun shinning, so I decided to go for a walk.

At the beginning, my body was lazy, tired, I was gonna give up so many times thinking that I can not keep that challenge, this is tough, I have to nourish my body otherwise my muscles are gonna get weak. Plus during this whole quarantine I have been kind of working out at home, from yoga, to walks, hikes, to keep my muscles strong. So imagine the conversations I was having with my mind all the way up to the beaver lake from my home.

"I can't do this anymore, maybe I should stop, it is ok if I did, what do I have to loose, you worked a lot on these muscles, and see, you can barely go up this small hill."

At one point, I was gonna give up and come back home, thinking that now it is day 3, my body can be tired and simply needs to rest. Feeling all the aches everywhere, I was pursued that this is what I must do.

Than, I remembered how back in Egypt during the water fast, I had a lot of energy, and plus I was ready to run, exercise, with no food and only prana, from the water, the sun and the sea.

So here I am, repeating, "my body is strong, my body is strong, my body is strong" & I remembered back in 2017 when I ran the 1/2 marathon, when a week before I decided to sign up, and at the same time, my food intake was so little, and mainly drinking green juices and smoothies, of course, all plant based. So I thought, yes my body is so intelligent, and this is one of the reasons why I am taking the self-challenge, so I can witness the power of the body and sometimes, the weakness of the mind.

I did walk, for a little bit above 6 km, and I was happy, it was chilly outside, my body was cold, but I did it and that is what counts.

I am back home now, making a warm drink, with Ginger and Turmeric, maybe I will add a little bit of hemp seeds and blend them together.

It is already 17:17, and I need to soon get ready for the online group sitting at 18:00.

I wanted to share that experience here... to keep the memory of knowing, the body is STRONG.

Here are the distances I have done since I started.
