Spin class rocked this morning! I wore my hear rat monitor so I was able to see how hard I needed to push myself. My legs burned, and I have never sweat that much in a spin class!
Here are my statistics:

  • Duration: 45:00 minutes
  • Average Heart Rate: 150 bpm
  • Maximum Heart Rate: 196bpm26 year old target heart rate:
    98–166 beats per minute 50%-85%
    195 beats per minute 90%-100%

I came home and made a large bowl of Cranberry Oats!

I want to stop and take a break from my normal posts about food and exercise and talk about Make a Difference Mondays! My local radio station always does this thing on air where they talk about doing something big or small for someone else on Mondays, just because. This could be anything for buying the person behind you in line at Sbux a coffee, or even paying for a strangers dinner bill. Mondays are rough for a lot of people and they don’t need to be. My challange to you readers and myslf is to pass the torch of love on to others. Being intentional about making a difference every day, but thinking about it every Monday. I would love us to share our Monday stories with one another! How can you make a difference in someones life today, how have you made a difference?

Face Behind the Counter
The face behind the counter
paints a portrait very clear
This life which God created
Has real hopes, real hurts, and fears
Will I take a moment
From the pressing day ahead
And listen to my spirit
To serve a soul that might need fed
I see within their eyes
The need for something true
Will I let them see my faith
By what I say and do
Can I spare a tiny piece
From life’s giant block of time
Will I take these seconds given
And from my own world, choose to climb
A chance to be a blessing
A chance to show some grace
With hope, they just might see
A glimpse of God’s face.
