Today You Can by Catherine Pulsifer
Today you can choose to count your blessings or you can count your troubles. Today you can live each moment or you can put in time. Today you can take action towards your goals or you can procrastinate. Today you can plan for the future or you can regret the past.
Today you can learn one new thing or you can stay the same. Today you can seek possibilities or you can overwhelm yourself with the impossible.
Today you can continue to move forward or you can quit. Today you can take steps towards resolving your challenges or you can procrastinate.
You see today the choices are up to you in deciding what you do today.
Thank you for your thoughtful comment on my blog. I chose “normal” BMI instead of “healthy” BMI because as others have maintained, you can be healthy even if above what is defined as the “healthy weight” range and I agree. A little above shouldn’t be a problem, but the article a few weeks ago that insisted you can be healthy at 5’4” and 225 lbs sends the wrong message. Is there no upper limit?
Like you I’m not aiming for the bottom of my range (117-154) defined as “healthy weight.” I must have been there once, like in high school on my way up to overweight. However, there are always outliers in statistics, the professional football players who are above the range, and the world class gymnasts below it. I agree that both are healthy, but not many of us fall into either category. Most people fit somewhere in the middle.
