Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible.

This quote so exemplifies my journey. This is more than just shedding unwanted pounds. For me this is the journey of life. Finally I am on the right path on all levels of my life. Seeing the road to my personal destiny is amazing.

I posted the above paragraphs over a year ago and they still hold true. I have had a lot of ups and downs over the past year and a half. Moving from Utah to Wyoming, and now back home to Texas. Every day is a new day full of new experiences. I now look forward to each day. Having shed 80 lbs as of today I can clearly see the way to my goal.

It is amazing how much damage Stress can do to our bodies. When we become stressed our bodies seem to hear the word desserts instead of stressed. Since desserts is simply stressed spelled backwards. Either are just as dangerous to us and usually end up on our hips.

Security is mostly a superstition.
It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. ~ Helen Keller

The cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure that you seek. ~ Joseph Campbell

    love your bike! Also love your comments. Especially the cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. Made me think of what caves do a fear to enter. oh oh I know one. I hate the cold and bought a wet suit to go into the pool in the winter, I am afraid to go in. Will let you know when I do it. I hear that if you exercise in the cold your body builds brown fat which burns more calories. Makes sense.

    Happy Earth Day! Today is the day to start doing something good for the planet. You can recycle or reuse things. You can change your light bulbs to energy saving ones. When you're grocery shopping ask for paper instead of plastic, or better yet bring your own bags each time. Find something that you can do today that will improve the planet and your life.
