Slog Away, Sweet Friends.

Just walk.

Or Slog (AKA: Slow jog).

1 mile. One foot in front of the other at whatever pace feels right. It will only take you 14 minutes. You’re worth that.

Just do it.

Today.

Because if you can, consider this a gift. One day our bodies will wane. One day resting will seem more redeeming than running. So start small and don’t give up.

Listen to “Light Shine Bright,” TobyMac.

Or “Won’t Turn Back,” NEEDTOBREATHE.

Or maybe you can reply and share your favorite get-your-blood-pumping song that motivates your fancy-pants to move.

I’d love that. ; )

24 hours, remember.

Time is a gift you’ll never get back. With so many items on our to-do list, we’ll need an increase in energy. I’ve found that my momentum slips away when I’m stagnant, and I’m assuming each one of us want to make 2019 our best year yet!

Let’s promise together to intentionally pursue the things that improve our health, bring us joy, and release His peace. My hope and prayer for 2019 is to post more encouraging messages to lift our spirit.

I need that.

I’m thinking you may, too.

For me, moving is the number one thing that kickstarts my creative juices and when God inspires me with writing ideas the most. Let’s start this year with movement. Here are the other reasons I slog:

Increases bone mass

Increases energy

Defeats depression

Burns calories

Me time

Fresh air

Reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke

Because I can. There’s no excuse.

Move. Hold tight for the ride. Maybe even message me back if you got out today.

Here’s to 2019!

Much love,

Dabney

PS Another New Year’s resolution I’d like to tackle is updating my blog (it’s about time, right?). Does anyone have experience using WIX? Or WordPress? If so, which do you prefer?

PSS Please, please, please (do you hear me begging here?;) share your favorite uplifting music! I’m always looking for a happy song to play!
