Write Down Your Goals!

Monday, January 11, 2010

An unwritten want is a wish, a dream, a never-happen. The day you put your goal in writing is the day it becomes a commitment that will change your life. Are you ready?

The Gym Closed!

Sunday, January 10, 2010

I got a telephone call yesterday morning telling me my gym had closed. I really had expected it. The signs were there. The good news is that they transferred the memberships to another gym that is closer to my house and a nicer facility. Another cloud with a silver lining. I also get to meet a whole new group of friends at the new gym. God is in His heaven and all is right with the world.

  


Seize the summer inside you!

Saturday, January 09, 2010

One of the quote of the day e-mails I got today quoted Camus: "In the depths of winter, there is inside you an invincible summer!"

Today is sort of a winter. It is cold outside but I am referring to an allegorical winter. I just got a call from my aerobics instructor telling me that my gym had closed. Who closes a gym in January. I had a client once tell me that if you couldn't make money running a gym in January you had no business in the business. I guess that's true, but this was a nation chain gym!

But there is a summer in this winter. They sold the memberships to a gym which is convenient to my house and this will give me an opportunity to meet new people and experience new instructors and trainers. So, even this cloud has a silver lining.

  


Happy Friday!

Friday, January 08, 2010

The first week of the new year is drawing to a close. The gym was crowded this week as it always is the first week of the year as all of the resolution exerciser come in, over do their exercises, over stretch all of their muscles and give in to the soreness of their bodies which they take as a sign they shouldn't be exercising in the first place. I imaging the crowd will be back down to normal by the 18th, with just the regulars and a few new souls in attendance each day. Fortunately, most of the resolutioners are not committed enough to show up at 5:30 so the crowd is not as disruptive as at say 6:00 PM.

    How sad, but true.

It is a big bright beautiful day.

Thursday, January 07, 2010

The sky is gray and the weatherman is predicting snow. Yesterday my daughter-in-law and granddaughter were involved in a car wreck and the car rolled over three times. Thank God for seatbelts! Neither of them had any appreciable injuries and aside from some residual soreness, they are OK today so in spite of the weather, it is a big bright beautiful day.
