Football Saturday!

Saturday, September 08, 2012

Today will be an oddessy.

Three granddaughters cheer leading, Two Grandsons playing football. One Grandson playing soccer all followed by the Alma Mater's football game this evening. And this occurs at six different venues. I will be well traveled by the end of the day, and probably pretty tired. I knew this was going to happen and turned in two hours early last night to get rested up. It is a grind but Mark Twain said that when we look back on our lives, we regret the things we didn't do a lot more than the things we did so I am doing them. I enjoy the games and watching the grandchildren and I will have the memories so I can enjoy them again.

Make Today a Great Day!

The Greater Challange!

Give yourself an even greater challenge than the one you are trying to master and you will develop the powers necessary to overcome the original difficulty.

    Interesting and proven. I like your post because it reminds of a perspective in which we all forget exists. Good idea!

A Short Week!

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Holiday weeks are so-o--o-o-o-o-o-o-o confusing. Monday comes on Tuesday and there is no Wednesday and before you know it, it's Friday and the week is gone and Football is back. I will try to keep everything straight this week and see how it goes.

I started a new exercise program this morning, adding 30 minutes to the morning workout and attending the power class. I have step aerobics scheduled this afternoon. I have to take this a tad more seriously for the rest of the year. After a good 75 day, 18 pound start this year, I sort of slipped and am now 270 days into the year only down 3 pounds. Vigilance is a must! So, starting over again on the first day of the rest of my life.

    Then there is also football on Thursdays so Thursdays are Saturdays and the whole week is turned inside out!

    At least it's progress! But you're right . . . vigilance is required for the plan to work! Good luck.
