The Morning After..










One of the tools I have found helpful in making decisions is asking myself how I feel the next morning. Stopping a moment while in the midst of making a decision to think about how I will feel if I go forward and how I’ll feel if I don’t. The only time this doesn’t work for me is when I block out doing it because I don’t want to know the answer. Ah, the power of our minds.

Yesterday my

Big Dreams, In or Out?









W6D3 of C25K today and 1st time I ever did 2 days in a row. Normally, the program is every other day. However, Wednesday morning when I got up my knee gave in for just a moment, my toe had been ripped open again the night before AND I could not find my headphones. I spent time wondering if I was looking for excuses or listening to my body. I was dressed and ready to go and the missing headphones

Discombobulated, Testing My Committment









With a hair appointment later this morning I knew I had to get out for my W5D3 of Couch to 5K before I left and walked into my office to find my iPhone battery completely dead. OK change of plans. I use the program on my phone for my run. Change of plans, when leaving my hair appointment, since I will be at the beach, will do my run right after my appointment. Drat, will making freshly blow dried straight hair get

Getting Things Done, C25K









Day 2 of office organizing done and showing some real progress. I can walk in the door of my office without fear of tripping over boxes. I can see 95% of all the floor space and desk is 50% cleared off. Getting behind on everything else but project organize is going well. Committed last night to giving up Incredimail and going with Outlook : ( Not nearly as much fun, yet ever so much more efficient. Intending to finish all

Franklin Covey -The 5 Choices, Getting Things Done, The 1 Thing, Couch to 5K and Getting Organized












Spent most of the weekend in my Team Beachbody Franklin Covey training on The 5 Choices and it reminded me of why continual personal development is so critical to our success. When I discovered The 1 Thing concept, I made a number of changes in my life which have almost become habit. Studying the 5 Choices reminded me how reaching success involves more than just doing the 3 most important things first each day. There needs

Overcoming Doubt










This morning was the first day of Week 4 in my C25K Program. Definitely more running than walking now. And this morning for the 1st time I felt a tiny bit of hesitation in me. For a second even thought about putting it off for later today and then caught myself and got my running shoes on and headed out. The statement you never regret a work out you do, only those you don’t, is ringing in my ears right now.

Golf T’s, Couch to 5K and the Best Moment of the Day…










Week 3, Day 3 of Couch to 5K completed this morning and the program has now crossed a threshold where the minutes spent jogging will be more than the minutes spent walking and I’m excited about that. The 1st time through the program I was terrified wondering if I could do it. Now I know I can because I did it before. I’m expecting it to be a bit more difficult since I am 2 years older and heavier than last

Lessons Roulette, Black Licorice, C25K










Have been in a bit of a funk lately and managed to skip my walking day yesterday. Since it was not a Couch to 5K Day I rationalized it was OK. So OK, that I felt crummy all day for letting myself down. I could not wait to get out there this morning and do W3D2 and get back in my rhythm. No matter how slow or inefficient I am doing it, I feel accomplished when I am done. Sitting

Running University Back on Line, Meet Up Groups, 100 Things in a 100 Days and 100+ Pounds









Have a bit of a dilemma judgement wise and looking for your thoughts. In preparation for traveling the country in our RV, we have lots and lots of stuff to get rid of. Not only a house with every inch crammed full, a giant walk in closet at mom’s house full of clothes and 1 jammed 10 x 10 storage unit (down from3 which I think is a win.) In other words, lots of stuff. And because I am a staunch
