Thanks, Don. Makes you wonder if there is really a desire on our nation's policy makers part to improve health, wage war against obesity and save the environment .....
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Thanks Don! I wasn't aware of this program. I will keep ears and eyes open!
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” Mr. Rogers
I received this notice today:
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) has received word that a devastating attack on trails, walking and bicycling could happen this week.
Though we do not know details yet, we anticipate a congressional amendment that could do away with or hobble programs like Transportation Enhancements (the nation's largest funding source for trails, walking and bicycling), Recreational Trails Program and Safe Routes to School. Therefore, we are working with many other organizations to defeat such a damaging amendment.
No action is needed on this front today; we just wanted to give you a heads-up to expect an action alert from us in the coming days.
If it comes, please do not delay in speaking up: If such an amendment is offered, we might have mere hours to respond.
Thank you in advance,
We are going to need to be vocal and active to PUSH our politicians to do the correct, healthy and green thing for us citizens!

We can use a little Walking Like Egyptians here in America! Let's not take this without a fight for what we know is right!
