February already!

Saturday, February 09, 2013

So my coffee drinking is pretty much remaining at my pre-2013 level. I'm ok with it, I like my coffee.

Had a lovely morning at the gym. I went on the treadmill next to a young man who I have seen there many times over the last couple of years. A long time ago, he paid me a compliment on his observation of my workout, and we talked for a few moments. He had had a serious accident which basically required that he learn to walk all over again, and the treadmill was continuing physical therapy for him.

I hadn't seen him in a while, and last year started seeing him once in a while again, I guess our schedules had changed so it wasn't as frequent that we were there together.

Then this morning--as soon as I got on the treadmill, he turned to say hello. I told him that he looks great--he does, I had noticed a big change previously. He's lost weight and definitely is more muscular. He was so happy!! He got a huge smile and I told him that was another big change, that I had never seen him smile like that before!

We talked for a couple of minutes as I was doing some warmup, and both of us complimented the other on our progress. What a lovely way to start the day!

    It's great to make someone else's day! I so enjoy seeing someone respond to a kind deed. Great job, Barb!

    I love spotting "regulars" at the gym. It makes my day to know that someone else is sticking to their plan!!
