Sign: “EXERCISE MAKES YOU LOOK BETTER — so does vodka” 😁

Interesting about the arch muscle control. I do exercises from Apple’s Exercise+ via my iPad or Apple TV; the coaches will say things like, “Now, as you raise your weights over your head, really grip into the floor with your toes!” or “Raise your body off the floor with power, then lower with control!” So I am starting to get attuned to activating muscles to which I normally would not pay attention. And like the foot arches, sometimes it isn’t easy!

I first read about foot arches in Meditations from the Mat by Rolf Gates… He admitted to not knowing he could control the muscles in his feet, too!

What else is inside of me that I don’t know about?! 😊

I’m opting for exercise and passing on vodka!

Some days we are the lungs and mouth tossing dandelion seeds to the four winds… Other days we are the seeds!

A delightful post today, Gail! Keep stringing words. This frequent dandelion seed seeks direction, and often you kindly point in the direction that one might go. PANCAKES!

PANCAKES!

I try to be be a little bit lungs/mouth and a little bit seed every day. It seems for me, one feeds the other. 💜

For the record, I thought your fox looked a little like Ben. I showed my husband and he said, “that is a fox and not Ben.”

He saw your vision.

Glad the muses keep showing up. 💖

Absolutely looked like a fox to me! This community that you have is wonderful. I am so glad to be a part of it.

I love the whole foot thing! I learned a lot about feet when I was in school. Lots about all those little tiny bones as well. Then you just forget about everything until you purchase a really cool pair of running shoes and you cannot even walk in them! I started to wear Xero’s now because they are like running barefoot. How much longer I can run or walk in them is crazy! From years upon years of wearing heels, swishing my toes, overextending my arches and raising my heels; it’s wonderful just to be comfortable! And pain free!

Our bodies were made for motion! Your free spirited muses know that!

I am so glad to have you here Sharon! What a joy it is to see my friends connecting and conversing with each other! 😊

I like “free run” shoes because they are almost like being barefoot. Thanks for telling us about xeros! I’m going to check them out!

I slipped on an old pair of shoes because my regulars got wet on a rainy walk. The old pair has an over exaggerated arch and I noticed my weight was rolling to the outside edges of my feet.

We like to move it, move it! Henny makes sure we keep going around here! 😊
