Enjoying being in dear old London. Going to Wales in a couple of days time and then to the North of England. A another long haul flight due on the 11th of September. Will be over the moon to see my family again. Have had a wonderful look around various European countries and am exhausted but have to press on. It's keeping me young. Legs are on the mend.

If - By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too
If you can wait & not be tired by waiting
Or being lied about
Don't deal in lies
Or being hated, don't give way to hating
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise

If you can dream and not make dreams your master
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop to build them up with worn out tools

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch & toss
And lose & start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss
If you can force your heart and nerve & sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the will which says to them "Hold on"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue
or walk with kings nor lose the common touch
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you
If all men count with you, but none too much
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With 60 seconds worth of distance run
Yours is the earth & everything that's in it
And which is all, you'll be a man my son

Great time to get focused on the fall challenge! For me, a new month always brings excitement for change. I don't think you need any more changes! It really can make a positive difference when you are on your own and able to concentrate on yourself. Sounds like you shouldn't have any trouble finding ways to get in fitness minutes! My goodness, moving! Just a little MOM (mind over matter) while meal planning and going thru the busy days ahead may really help. Do you enjoy veggies? I have found that eating a salad with my large meal of the day has really helped my to stay within range on calories and nutrients. Some days, I will eat a large salad as my large meal. I would like to post a "loss" on the scales this week too~! Have a super weekend!

So glad you enjoyed the pictures...Patch (my walking buddy) really is beautiful. He's just and expensive pet though, because he's too dangerous to ride.... emoticon
I love my outdoor walks too, and it doesn't get that cold here so I should be able to walk year round. Have a great weekend.

NZ sounds soo PRETTY !! WOOHOOOO !! I am so GLAD things are EASILY available,, as of course they are in the US. Even here,,,in Maine we ARE "CLAIMED" to have the BEST water, but STILL I have a filter on my faucet,,,,cos this building is about 35 yrs old. They haven't replaced all the pipes,,,,so yeah, I DO prefer a filter. Sides they do NOT cost much. HOWEVER most homes in Maine do NOT have one, unless they are WELL watah,, and A LOT of homes in ME outside the city are well watah.

ME gets QUITE A LOT of rain,,,,so weve ONLY ONCE in my 50 PLUS yrs here,,,have a "drought" warning,,,,,, and that was ONLY a warning. We turned out to be FINE that yr. It SURE DOES LOVE to RAIN HERAH !! Tomorrow it WILL AGAIN !! I though, am A SUN FREAK !! I ADORE the SUN !! if I had been born back in the OLDEN Days,,, I MAY NOT of Served Jehovah (LOL That's AWEFUL TO SAY ) So that I COULD WORSHIP the SUN,,, I ADORE it THAT MUCH !!! LOL HOW AWEFUL of me !!

When you can PLZ update from Sat forward ur exer/Tracking for the team. We need it QUITE badly for ALL 3 TOP TEAMS are NECK AND NECK on Points !! OH MY !!! We are ALL GR8 TEAMS !! it's NICE to see the WRJ&G's back on track,,,,since our former WL who had one time been the CL,,, is now the CL of their team. She trained ME and WOOHOOO I TURNED OUT OK!! And we are bf's,,, we talk EVERY night. She's a FUN PERSON !! it's maryanngi.
