On Coach Nancy's blog: (She is a leader on the sleep challenge team)
Every man dies, but not every man really lives." -William Wallace
Today, I vow to live in the moment and enjoy being alive, feeling my body and its strength, and to take opportunities to do something new.

Well (taking a big breath).... I've done it!
Reading Judy Beck's "Diet Solution," which recommends getting a coach. I've chosen my son, who doesn't live here, but is supportive, kind, and motivated for physical fitness. He spent Thanksgiving with us, and he and I discussed how we'd handle it, and I'm sending him my list of "reasons why" today.
I was surprised at how nervous I felt making a commitment that involved being accountable to another person. Our son is a good choice because I don't want to disappoint him, and further, I want to encourage him to get more trim and fit as well, setting a good example for him (he just quit smoking about 6 months ago). He just finished a Dale Carnegie course (his second or third), is in sales, so knows what goals, motivation, and accountability are all about. I think he's my perfect choice.

My torn meniscus is still giving me a little trouble. Interestingly enough, though, my session at Curves yesterday made it feel better. Still being really careful on a couple of the machines (yellow dots all over the place in my end "report") but I'm trying not to let my competitive spirit overdo AGAIN and send me back into taking it easy.
I'm so close to 100 sessions at Curves, I'm excited about being able to go.

but a link to YouTube, with one of the things I participated in while in Seattle.
The recording is one from my chorus. I wasn't in the chorus then, but this song is one that put RichTones on the map, so to speak. Our director pushes the envelope in style of music. Competition music has specific chord structure requirements, in order to preserve the idea of what "barbershop" music is about. In entertainment packages, though, we can go outside those requirements. All of us, though, love those barbershop chord progressions.
This year, the International organization picked our music and our chorus to "start" the action. You'll notice Sweet Adelines learn FAST and are accustomed to choreography. In minutes the entire group was moving. This was SO much fun!
