Jamie's question today for Wish casting Wednesday is:

What do you wish to say yes to?

I would like to say "YES" to movement, specifically... exercise. I have a home gym in my basement that has been gathering dust since last winter. I have a tread mill, an elliptical machine, a weight bench, a reclining ab bench, a rowing machine, a trampoline, and a stepper, not to mention numerous balance balls, free weights and workout DVDs. While taking advantage of the weather and choosing walking instead of exercise equipment has been working for me all summer, I have really fallen off the wagon the last month or two. Except for belly dance lessons twice a week, my workouts have been limited to intervening in disputes between a bunch of two and three year old's. It just seems that lately it's just too easy to say "no" to anything requiring exertion. In fact, tonight was the first time I've gone for a walk in two weeks.

But starting now, I am going to rekindle my relationship with my sadly neglected equipment in the basement. Instead of giving it discouraging and guilty glances, I am going to going to jump on and move...well step at a time!


  1. Great!
    As you wish for yourself, so i wish for you also.

  2. As Marisa wishes for herself, so I energetically wish for her also.

    I hear you about the exercising... and I don't even have a good excuse to avoid it!

  3. can you send some of that wonderful motivation my way?? =)

  4. Movement.. ahh, I definitely want to say yes to that, too..

    As Marisa wishes for herself, so I wish for her also!

  5. "blog quote" of the day is "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."
    -Walt Disney
    Guess I should shut up about wanting to exercise and "just do it!"

  6. As Marisa wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

    Just make sure you have fun doing it!

  7. Good for you Marisa!! I need some of that motivation. I wish I could come exercise with you!

  8. Movement is a very good thing. Part of what I like about traveling is the movement, climbing new stairs and hills to see new sights. It does cause me to move. Good luck facing the movement with your workout equipment.

  9. What a great wish.
    As Marisa wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

  10. As Marisa wishes for herself, I wish for her also. Good to see you here again.
    I am with you on the moving the body wish!
