05/30/2011 – Memorial Day
Good morning, Mintdom,
I just love that the outdoor pool is open! It is not big enough for swimming; however, it is GREAT for treading water, and socializing. I like to go swimming in the indoor pool and dry off outside. It will be easy to go swimming after work now – yeah!
One of the reasons why I need to get stronger is that I am going to a conference in San Diego in August. I really need to be stronger for that and the pool will help me prepare for a lot of walking at a large convention center. One of my favorite authors, Jon Gordon is going to speak. He is author of several books, including The Energy Bus, The No Complaint Rule, and his latest, The Seed. I am including a link to Jon’s latest book, The Seed. I strongly recommend it. I am so excited about seeing him! In addition, Dave Ramsey is speaking – maintain a working budget is also one of my struggles. I hope to get some insight as to how to overcome some of my obstacles to keep that in order.
My top five summer goals are the following:
1. Work up to swimming 5 days a week
2. Work up to walking 3 days a week
3. Eat fresh, whole foods
4. Maintain my budget
5. Have fun with family and friends!
I actually did not have to list number 5; that is easy for me to do. Minty and I LOVE to spend time with family and friends. It is good though, because that is something that I KNOW I can check off easily, and checking off things on a list feels so good! On a side note – I usually bring a list to the grocery store, and if I ‘forget’ to put something on the list before the store, I add it IN the store so I can check it off! Unfortunately, it is something that I probably do not need to buy! LOL
Do you have summer goals that you would like to share? What is your top goal? I would love to hear your answers.
AffirMINTion: I plant the seed of good health each day!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
