"If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes."

John Wooden

This from one of my top 3 favorite coaches. John Wooden actually coached at South Bend Central H.S. for (mid 1930's) several years, my Alma Mater. He was a Hoosier, born in Hall, IN then went on to coach at UCLA in 1947....the rest is history. I see this quote having a lot of relevance to our journey at SP. At least for me, this journey to health has been a learning experience. I've made mistakes and have learned from the experience. I'm sure I'll make more mistakes in the future too, but at least it has taught me to really be a 'doer'. I remember I used to love to sit down & relax - for WAY too long. Now, I just like to keep moving as much as I can. Anything to burn more calories!! The extra bonus is that all of that activity and movement has made me feel as good as I did when I was 30. I'll be drawing SS in the very near future and in no way do I feel my age!! It's fabulous!! As Coach Wooden says....it's best to be a 'doer'.

Had a good day today. The weather was gorgeous. Seems that these past couple of days have been a little fall teaser, giving us a glimpse of that glorious fall weather that's soon to come. It's supposed to heat up again though, at least for a little while.

Ahhh.....tomorrow is Friday!! Really looking forward to the weekend.
