Thanks to all my readers in 2014, PLUS a post about Exertion and Success

I know you haven’t heard much from me in awhile. I got distracted and did fewer posts but even so I did manage 88 posts this year and I had 3200 views this year. Thanks to you. Blogging is something I enjoy but that enjoyment really is super enhanced by comments and likes.

I would like to do more next year, so I request your continued encouragement in 2015.

One post I have been thinking about is in regard to exertion. In an effort to develop a healthier lifestyle that includes regular exercise I have been doing a Heart Conscious Exercise Program three times a week. It is a ten week program and you go three times a week exercising doing both a cardio and strength program. I hope that ten weeks will be enough that I have a good foundation to continue on my own for a healthier 2015.

What about you in this post? On the wall at the clinic is a chart for perceived effort. You need to apply yourself to excel but not over do it, right?

RPE ScaleAs I look at this chart three times a week I wondered if it applies to more than exercise. Our lives and our enjoyment of life are crossovers of work, family, friendships,  wouldn’t you agree?

We are happiest also when we are busiest I believe, but without overdoing it. For example, think about any area of your life. Are you satisfied with that area? I will use Friendships as an example right now. How are your friendships? Close enough? Do you see your friends often, and hear from them regularly. I am blessed with some wonderful friends but I know in 2015 I want to exert myself more in this area. I know I can improve so that I am even more blessed in this area, every area.

2013-07-22 19.25.47In fact in every area of my life, I think I will try to exert myself a little harder in 2015 for a full and blessed 2015.  If I want the result, then I have to make the effort.

What about you in 2015 – is there an area that you only making a “fairly light” effort and are going to move to “somewhat hard”.

Thanks for reading, thank you for your encouragement, and thank you for your comments.
