Just Do It!

Thursday, December 30, 2010

This is my mantra for 2011 . . .
Procrastination is not an option.

~~~

Every day in Africa a gazelle wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.
~
Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
~
It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle.
When the sun comes up, you better be running.

My annual Christmas gift list

Friday, December 24, 2010

A thought from Oren Arnold-

Christmas gift suggestions:

To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

Merry Christmas to one and all,
~dp emoticon

Lest we forget . . .

A video I borrowed from YouTube. Please stop at some point today and reflect for a moment on the true reason for Memorial Day. We owe them much!

Believe

I ran across these two quotes that struck a chord with me; thought I would share them:

Oliver Wendell Holmes once attended a meeting in which he was the shortest man present.  "Dr. Holmes," quipped a friend, "I should think you'd feel rather small among us big fellows."  "I do," retorted Holmes, "I feel like a dime among a lot of pennies."  ~Author Unknown

Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.

Note to self!

Sunday, December 27, 2009

Cardio workout pre-flight:

1. Get ample sleep the night before.
2. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
3. Consume adequate calories prior to workout.
4. Listen to body when it signals, "all is not well."
5. Stop BEFORE you get dizzy!
6. Pack a post-workout snack, especially if #3 was not completed.
7. Engage brain prior to initiating exercise.
8. Pay the price if steps #1 - #7 are ignored.
