A Mini Minty MoMINT
“Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce.” – Vivian Komori
My mom says… never give up on your dreams… AND I LIKE IT!
Life is Minty Fresh!
I AM Serious!
I am still wearing my pedometer and I will not bore you with a step count however, my steps are a low of 4,200 and a high of 11,339 steps. I normally stay in the 5,500 to 6,000 range. Looking at this, I need to step it up! LOL The one thing that I DO, do well when it comes to moving is that I keep putting that pedometer on and I keep working at improving.
I think I get that persistence from my parents who are of tough Minnesota stock. For example, my mom just had a hip replacement in January and she has amazed us all by her perseverance in getting back on her feet. She did everything right with determination and without complaint. She has been walking without a cane for a few weeks. My dad had chest pains on Thursday, his doctor admitted him to the hospital and on Friday AFTER a battery of tests had a stent put in. My mom was at his side the whole time. He was out of the hospital on Saturday, and ALL this is in the midst of getting their house ready to put on the market this week!
On a little side note – when my dad had his first EKG they told him he had the EKG of a 20 year old. After the Nuclear Stress test, they told my dad that he had an EKG of a 30 year old. I told my dad that he better get out of the hospital before he turned 40! BTW, my dad is actually 80 years old! He is a GREAT example of perseverance – he has exercised daily for his life!
I think this video is a GREAT example of perseverance. youtu.be/wWt3CmSIcKA
AffirMINTion: I persevere.
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
