Day 11500 of 26000 going to be Great!

Sunday, October 09, 2011

OK OK .. This only for 80% of the readers... Only the Optimist..

Hugs to the others.....

BUT for the most part about 355 of 365 days in a year have absolutely

no reason to not be :

G R E A T D A Y S !
______________

On nearly every day we have the chance to make the day great or

OK or just another day. WHY NOT make this day of ours

G R E A T !
emoticon

We all have an average of 26000 days to live in our lives. Some may live

to be 100 years or 36500 but others do not make it that far and may fall in the

15000 to 20000 range. Either way we only have a small ammount of days

to live. Let's live today and soak it up , relax a bit ,get out and do something,

hold or pet our pets, love our spouse, hug or call our kids, spend time with

our loved ones!!

S H A L L W E ??!!??!!??


I have lived about 11500 days in this world and today for me is going to be

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREAT!

I keep grinding gears! I was in 5th gear going...

Friday, October 07, 2011

I keep grinding gears! I was in 5th gear going 90 and thought hey,

" I want to go backwards....." I know my body is not hurting as bad

as a car would but I have been doing this for years and I am stopping

NOW.

OK to explain: tuesday and Wed I tore it up working and eating amazingly!

I was great and had a Awesome weigh in and felt great. So yesterday

I allowed myself to go nutty when I should have taken a nap... I was tired

and ended up over eating by 1500 or 1/2 pound poof in 2 or 3 hours....

I look back today and see that I watched a movie called 50/50 as my

movie for the week and I think it was just too sad for me and thus

started me on the road to allowing indulgences...and after one the second

is OH so easy to justify right? OK so no more Sad movies when hungry and

tired = BAD NEWS for Chris.

Back on track today and ready to do this!

(but boy that cico posting was sure hard to do today!)
