Wk 5 – Random Acts of Kindness Week

It is Random Acts of Kindness Week!


This week you are strongly encouraged (okay, forced) to be kind to one another. At tonight’s potluck, each participant will secretly draw a name out of the Kindness Bag. Then you must do a Random Act of Kindness for that person sometime this week – you can do multiple things or just one – it can be anonymous or you can let them know it’s you. I’ve included each V.V. participant’s address in case you’d like to mail something to them. This Random Act of Kindness will give you a Service Point this week!

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. -Aesop

Be kind to one another! For ideas on R.A.K. – check out www.randomactsofkindness.org/.

I challenge you to do some Random Acts of Kindness to others too! Strangers, family, friends, acquaintances, etc. I’ve printed some business cards that say “Please enjoy this random act of kindness” that you can take and leave along with your RAKs.

Here are some Kindness Ideas from RAK Week:

Monday, Feb 11—Smile at 10 strangers.
Tuesday, Feb 12—Buy something for the person in the line behind you.
Wednesday, Feb 13—Reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in a while.
Thursday, Feb 14—Bring a treat to a neighbor or your co-workers.
Friday, Feb 15—Donate your time or money to a local charity.
Saturday, Feb 16—Cook a healthy meal.
Sunday, Feb 17—Let someone go in front of you in line.

    My legs were killing me due to the exercises I did on Monday on the weight machine. Then today when I went to work out, I upped my leg weights to 85 lbs. and made sure I followed the 3 sets of 12 rule and it knocked the pain out thank goodness. I also upped my other weights as well to really challenge myself. It’s hard but it feels good at the same time. I am feeling good at this point of the challenge – my body looks better and my mood has been good. I hope everyone is having a good week so far 🙂 Having my daughter Whitney facetime me every day and ask me how my workouts are going is helping me stay accountable. I found that keeping a food diary wasn’t helping me much, so I’m not doing that anymore but I’m still very conscious of what I put in my mouth.

    i actually had to decrease my weights as i started feeling it in my back. i tried to stretch it out (a lot!) with my flexibility stretches and sun sals. still doing the weights 3x/wk. funny how everything seems to flow much smoother now that i’ve gotten back into it. i don’t have to rest so much between sets. i still feel like a breathe and grunt more than normal, but i push myself pretty hard. i hope i can keep up the routine – that wil be my life-long goal.

    The last time I did weights, I had to decrease a couple of them toward the end of the set as I just couldn’t finish the set w/o doing that, but I have noticed a change in my upper body – more toned and less arm jiggle, so just gotta keep plugging away, right? I want to make fitness my life long goal as well. I just purchased the treadclimber the club had for sale, so that will help !

    Wow I can’t believe it’s all most over with but that does not mean I can slack off. Now I really know the meaning to work hard.
