I'm leaning towards an atheist worldview as this sits best logically and honestly, it always had since I had left faith the first time, but I also like some principles in Buddhism, etc. I also like yoga meditation and that can be very connecting, I don't think you have to worship a deity in order to feel spiritual, as you say.

So, just sorting it out, but it feels good to be healed from my grandmother's death (although that awful void will always be there) and to be feeling like I don't ''need'' faith to hold me up, like I always thought I needed.

So for my workout today, I did a few miles on the treadmill as it was thundering out, and I didn't want to chance it. I then did some cross fit kettlebell stuff, planks, and push ups.

I think that you and Jennybee are people who live in close contact with their feelings (I honestly wish I could be more that way) and that that makes you more sensitive. Nothing wrong with it, but it isn't the way I was raised. You'll figure it out, one way or the other. One thing I learned, pounding my head on stacks of math and physics texts, wishful thinking won't get me a passing grade (or, more importantly, an understanding of a discipline that I intended to pursue as a career). It still took me many years to realize that I really was an atheist. BoT, I have problems with my feet that are still being worked, and I just had surgery on my left wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome) with surgery coming up on the right wrist soon, so I'm getting really soft, like the Stay Puft Marshmallow man, but not quite that tall.
Now see, I wish I was more like you. Laugh out load Less emotion.

Thanks for this, and regarding your workouts...sorry to hear. But, maybe swimming, something with low impact while you're healing? Consider

RE: Atheists who work out
Burpees are a necessary evil, perhaps. I have grown to like them, they were recently listed in a health magazine as one of the best cardio compound exercises.

Yesterday, I went for a 3 mile run, then did ab crunches, planks, push ups, and side planks. Today, don't have much planned, but over the weekend, back to cross fit.

RE: Atheists who work out
We did deep water aerobics late last night for the first time. It was humbling and a bit shocking.
I no longer float.
I was by far the largest person there, and the puny pool noodle was completely submerged under me, while everybody else had half a foot out of the water on either side.
I have had this built in flotation for so long, I became dependent on it. I can't move in the water like I used to. I will seriously be taking swimming lessons and working on swimming this summer. I am dangerous in the water now.
Did 2.2 in 30 on the treadmill this morning, followed by an hour of chest, overhead, and incline presses, triceps pushes, crunches, back extensions, core rotators on the machines.
Tomorrow is treadmill plus yoga.
Monday it will be pulls and legs.

Whenever I come back to this site, I don't feel all that welcome like I do on AF, I'm reminded why I don't come around much here whenever I return. Sad

Oh no, why do you say that? We love you here. Hug It could be that you just go on AF more and so they know your awesomeness more over there. Heart

Thank you and you're always so kind!! Hug
But it doesn't feel that way on here. Sad I just don't want to spend time where I'm not welcome.
