"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is it's own reward."

Amelia Earhart


We're proof positive that this is true. I think this one sums up what SP is about perfectly. The power lies within us. That's the thing. We only need to commit to our good decisions and everything else will fall into place, completely turning our lives around.


Tomorrow will be a big day - we have bus evacuation drills in the morning. They are timed and we are evaluated as to how well we explain this safety procedure. If there is a fire in the bus people have only 2 minutes flat to evacuate before it becomes impossible. That's not a lot of time for up to 66 people to get off safely. It has to be well organized, practiced and well planned. So.....I'm going to try to get a little extra rest tonight.

Had a great day. Nothing new to report. Oh, I did get a set of 3 hand/forearm exercise balls that come in 'soft, medium & firm' so that as hand strength increases you can use the proper resistance. Also got a Gripmaster that has 5# of resistance for each finger. Looking forward to starting this new regimen.

Mileage: 9.40 miles
ST: core; upper body

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope your Wednesday was great!! emoticon

    Keep us posted how the new "tools" are working out for you. I've lost a lot of hand strength, and need to build it back up again.
