Last Day of Summer; Now Comes BIG CHANGES!!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

emoticon Here we are, at the last day of summer. Did you have a good one?

Mine seemed to be filled with all kinds of injuries, beginning in Spring.

Let's see. I cracked my hip and pelvis, broke my finger and thumb, wrenched my knee out of place, experienced recurring nerve damage, and had my back keep me down for a week at a time.

On the other hand, I read some of my "Gotta Have!" quilt books that have been on the shelf for a couple years, got quite a bit of quilting finished, drove our guests up to Hurricane Ridge, walked Railroad Bridge Park, went photographing Dungeness Crabs, attended the sand carving festival, had fresh basil from the garden, entertained LOTS of company, went to the Quilt Show and Lavender Festival, cruised through the new Good Will store in town..........without buying anything!!!....watched some great baseball games, played Super Scrabble, went on a Mommy and Me trip to Las Vegas and won $1.85 from gambling, hiked Red Rock Canyon, saw Cirque de Soliel Mystique and The Lion King on stage, danced, laughed and had wonderful times with friends.

I am sure there is more, but I can't think of them right now.

All in all, a good summer, once I take a close look at it.

Now comes Autumn. And with it, some big changes.

The first Big Change is that I have agreed to be co-leader of my favorite SparkPeople.com team, Port Angeles and Surrounding Areas. That alone will bring big changes.

The first big change is that I have to turn myself into a good role model. That means I have to chart ALL of my food, do ALL of my workout stuff, including strength training, actually WEIGH IN and MEASURE each week, find more challenges for the team, and encourage more members to join us.

I am giving thought to what kind of challenges and social stuff we as a team, can do.

Our team has been drifting away for a while now, and it is my personal challenge to fire us up and get us all involved again.

The area we live in is spectacular, and finding stuff to do shouldn't be difficult. The difficult part will be getting the members to join in, since we have been inactive for several months now.

Got to find ENTHUSIASM!!! Any and all suggestions will certainly be welcome!

I will tell you about more changes tomorrow, the first day of Autumn.

Right now, I am encouraged by my strength and cardio workout I did today, along with honestly weighing in.

I'm impressed!

    So far, so good. It is expected to be 101 today, and we haven't had rain in over a month. We are very wilted here. I am looking forward to some cool weather and lovely fall colors.
