My Journey

I am a 56 year old retired Marine living in the Wisconsin countryside with Genie, my wife and best friend. We have 10 1/2 acres of land that has not been cleared except for where the house is. So we enjoy our privacy and the occasional visit from many of our wildlife friends. It is not uncommon for us to watch deer playing in the front yard while we have our morning coffee and chipmunks like to come in and hide acorns in our shoes. Since Spot and Not, our 2 mutant cats, I call them mutant ...
I am a 56 year old retired Marine living in the Wisconsin countryside with Genie, my wife and best friend. We have 10 1/2 acres of land that has not been cleared except for where the house is. So we enjoy our privacy and the occasional visit from many of our wildlife friends. It is not uncommon for us to watch deer playing in the front yard while we have our morning coffee and chipmunks like to come in and hide acorns in our shoes. Since Spot and Not, our 2 mutant cats, I call them mutant because they are so big, joined the family after we rescued them from the shelter, the acorns don't show up quit as much. Genie works for a large company in Madison and I am semi retired. She started a small business of her own a few years ago making handcrafted jewelry. I taught myself how to do wire wrapping and now we work and attend craft shows together.

After I retired from the Marines I started putting on weight. Genie and I love to cook and eat so now we both have to pay the fiddler. I am looking forward to this journey with her and the friends we will make here.

THE JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES STARTS WITH A SINGLE STEP!!

Let the journey begin.

My Goals:
I want to get back to a healthy weight so I don't feel winded just climbing the stairs. I need to get back to that Marine Corp fighting trim so I can keep up with all my grand kids.

My Program:
I am using the nutrition tracker to develop healthy eating habits and stay ahead of the game. We just bought a Wii with the EA Active and Fitness programs to make trying to get more exercise in these Wisconsin winters more doable and enjoyable. I will track that with the Fitness Tracker.

If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face.
And when that person has ugly thoughts every day,
every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier
until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.
You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth.
But if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
~Roald Dahl~

~~~~Creativity Takes No Excuses~~~~

If it's important enough, YOU'LL TAKE
TIME FOR IT.

If you don't know where to start,
START ANYWHERE.

If you feel stuck, ASK SOMEONE TO
HELP YOU OUT.

If you're tired, TAKE A TIMED BREAK.

If you don't know how to do it, TRY
DOING WHAT YOU CAN.

If you believe that you can do it,
YOU WILL.

~~~~~~Happy Wednesday~~~~~~
Love all, trust a few, do
Wrong to none.
(William Shakespeare)
Sending you Lots & Lots of (((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

~~~~~~~~~~7 Lovely Logics~~~~~~~~

1) Make Peace with your Past,
So it doesn't spoil your Present.

2) What others Think of you is
None of your business.

3) Time heals Almost Everything.
Give the Time, Some Time.

4) No one is the Reason for your Happiness
Except You, yourself.

5) Don't compare your Life with others,
You have No Idea what their journey is all about.

6) Stop Thinking too much
It's Alright not to know all the Answers.

7) Smile..You don't own
All the Problems in the World.

DO these sound Logical (natural, reasonable, sensible, understandable) to you?

Have a Wonderful Week Full of Logical Days!!
