More Chances to Get it Right!

05/23/10 – 4,414 Steps

5/24/10 – 4,159 Steps
1-hour exercise

It has been a few days since I have written, and my step count is low, but I HAVE been drinking my water!  It just seems that I cannot do it all!  Yesterday I joined a water aerobics class so I did get my exercise in, but cannot wear pedoMINTer in the pool or the watch I wear that monitors my exercise!

In addition, I have been cutting back on my TV watching.  I have been going to bed earlier, although it has not helped me get up earlier, and reading.  I am one of those multiple book readers.  If you have not read books by Jon Gordon, (The Energy Addict, The Energy Bus are a couple) I strongly suggest his books.  If you are not a big reader, they are especially good as they are very easy to read.  I also picked up Teaching a Pig to Dance – A Memoir of Growing Up and Second Chances by Fred Thompson.  I normally only read business or self help type books, but the title of the book intrigued me.  I am enjoying his wit and wisdom and of course I love the idea of second chances.  I am getting at least a second chance at getting healthy – second, third, forth…. LOL   Here are a couple of quotes from him.

“Teaching Latin to someone like me in high school was somewhat like trying to teach a pig to dance. It’s a waste of the teacher’s time and it irritates the pig.” –Fred Thompson

“Minor surgery is surgery that someone else is having.” –Fred Thompson

I think you get the flavor. Anyway, today, my is to step up my step count, work hard, eat well, enjoy some time with friends, and of course, read and rest.

“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” – Confucius

AffirMINTion: I love to read!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!
