End of Week Review 2/12/2016

Happy Valentine's Day a couple of days early! It's fun to give Valentine's Day cards and gifts to those we love. Today it stands for romantic love. This holiday had it's origins in the Catholic church from the time of the Roman occupation of Europe. Christians-Protestant and Catholic- should know about the real St. Valentine who lived during the reign of Claudius the Cruel, the Roman emperor in the third century. He was a Catholic priest who helped young couples get married during a time when it was forbidden for people to marry since it was believed that soldiers fought better single. Valentine performed the weddings secretly due to the law.

One day, he was caught and tortured for breaking the law. One of his judges was the father of a young blind girl who he miraculously healed. He lost his head around 278 AD.On the day of his execution, February 14, he sent a message to her signed "from your Valentine." This is where the notion of romance has become attached to February 14, although the meaning of Valentine's life and death went far deeper. What if our love for our spouses ran far deeper? How about if our love as Christians ran deeper and spread wider than flowers,cards, and candles?

Here are a few fun things you can do for your Sweetheart:
  1. Buy a small pack of Post-It notes. Write true compliments to him or her. Hide them EVERYWHERE! Keep them G-rated in case someone else accidentally finds them. This could be a year long gift to them!
  2. Do a chore or task for him or her which has been put off for quite a while. After you do it, wait to see if they notice. Regardless, slip a note inside the Valentine's card for them telling what you did and how special they are.
  3. Make a coupon book with deeds they can redeem from you throughout the year. It could be monthly, weekly, or whenever they wish to use one. Follow through with the coupon redemption!

In case you missed them:




Exercise Tip:Walking Lunges with Dumbbell Pass

This exercise is intermediate to advanced. As you step then drop the back knee toward the floor, pass the weight under the front leg. When doing the pass, it is important to keep your body as upright as possible. I prefer to "walk" a distance with a set number of steps such as 20 each direction. Another way is to do these as shown in the video by time.

Food Tip: Filler Up!
Nutrient dense foods are unprocessed to minimally processed, packed with vitamins and minerals, yet low in calories. The idea is to use nutrient density and volume to feel satisfied when you walk away from the table. Here is one of my heart healthy soups:



Have a blessed week!
