I am 50! And I have not reached my full potential. I am partly excited about this new decade and the opportunity for a fresh start. My goals and expectations are a bit more realistic and I am enjoying the process and journey a bit more these days. Exploring and trying new things, allowing new ideas on fitness and a variety to my diet. Trying new things and trying new ways. I am 50! It's about time I learned something new!

Oyster Festival...O.I. 2009

Saturday, October 17, 2009

The Ocean Isle Oyster Festival was a lot of fun today. It was a beautiful day! I had Oyster Gumbo for lunch then split a funnel cake with John. The Band of OZ was great and I enjoyed just sitting, listening, soaking up the fall is good, regardless of what it keeps telling me.


Happy 2009!

Thursday, January 01, 2009

It is yet another fresh new beginning. A new year. 2009! As I reflect over 2008 I can see where the path I have been is worn very well. 2009 promises new change, hope. In 2009 I will be physically stronger and more self-reliant. I will focus my self-esteem to be just that "self". No one will decide for me how I am going to feel today, that will be determined by me.

I have a high drive to succeed. But not to be better because of what others may think or gain, but to make a difference. To add value to my family, my friends, my work. I will continue to reach within me to bring who I am to the surface, an awakening. I will guard my self-esteem to be determined by how I feel about ME.

Questions to ask every day: Am I on track with my goals? Am I where I want to be? Am I doing what I want to do? If any answers are no - then an immediate adjustment will be made. This is not practice - it's 2009!

2009 will be my year!


time change / change with time

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Time changes Saturday night, fall back an hour. We get an extra hour! I always think about what I will do with my extra hours Sunday. Sleep? Exercise? Spend with family/friends? This year I'm going to blow the extra hour out of the water by spending it in quiet meditation with me! There are a couple of places I have in mind. I am going to take a journal and spend the entire hour writing and meditating/comtempating the fall season, my goals for next year and my plan of action. Once I get cranking with this time it may take more than an hour. Fall is a quiet time and winter is fast approaching - but spring will be fresh and new.

This has been a year of awakening. I've changed with time, small steps of progress. Learning from the tiny steps taken backward, but challenging myself to keep focused on the forward motion. It's amazing how slowly the process seems to be - then you look back over the past year and think WOW! The change is happening, and the positive changes have made a difference.


Fall is almost officially here

Sunday, September 07, 2008

Fall is almost here, and with it my birthday! October 21st! Last year to celebrate I did the Ramblin Rose Tri-ath, but this year I'm not in to it. I set myself up last year to accomplish something I had never accomplished and hit the goal. Now I've done it and what next? Maybe this is the start of something weird...doing something on my birthday that I have never done before - some years it may be a big thing, some years it may be a small thing. This year? I haven't decided.

Focus this month is diet, cleaning out the kitchen of summer junk food and going forward with eating clean.

Going for 21 days of X-Bike attendance every Mon, Wed and Friday... 21 days to form a new (or renew) a habit. Summer was a bit off balance with my routine, now I'm going to fall back into place.

Going to be a great fall season... clean eating diet details coming up next blog.
