I am breaking up with the cold.

178I am so very tired of the cold.

I just can not wait for the days of sun

and sand at the beach.

Mean time I am getting ready by

trying to keep my body ready.

Are you ready for the beach? shorts,

tank tops and the like?

I just want to walk on the beach.

I could not care less about other things.

Gang get ready for fun on the sun.

Opportunities.

Is this a sunrise or a sunset?

The end or the beginning?

It is up to you, me, us.

We get at least one of this every day

and what we decide to do with it,

well it is up to us.

It is within us to decide to make it

better, worse, or pathetically the same.

So I ask you once again…

What is this???

More importantly I ask you:

What will you make of it?

Gang stay focus stay successful.

By the way this is a sunset somewhere

in the Sonoran desert in Mexico. I went

for a walk and 2 days later on my way back

I took this picture.

What Is Progress???

GOALS.
I think that we can all agree how important goals are and how important it is to have an end in mind.
The problem comes when we get so caught in making a goal that we forget about progress.
Yes., we might be intent and committed to a loss of 10 pounds per month but hey 2, 5 or 7 pounds lost IS progress. It is movement in the right direction and we must celebrate because we are wining.
We want the big win. We want the glory of meeting the goal and sometimes we get frustrated when it doesn’t happen. Hey progress is progress and we must acknowledge and celebrate it. AND more important we must use it to keep us on task. progress

A Walk Of Perspective.

If you want to see just how small

our problems really are go for a walk

on the mountains.

Talk about getting some perspective.

This picture was taken somewhere

up in the Arizona mountains. NE of

Phoenix. I know that my mind was

heavy with issues and this trip help

me get some perspective.

Things will happen and how we react

will have a huge impact on everything.

I know my reactions have affected my

health, emotional stability, stress levels,

and so much more that I, and you should

know better but it don’t always works that way.

I guess what I am trying to tell you gang

is that in order to protect ourselves and

so be able to be the best we can be,

we must “kind of” stop every now and then.

Think before reacting.  And yes some times

Shut The Heck Up.

Gang let us do the best we can for all but

specially for ourselves.

About Champions.

champions believeEvery Day we need to re-enforce in our mind and heart

the why we are doing what we are doing.

We need to keep ever-present the dream and the goal

and with that, the confidence, strength, and believe will push us

to accomplish the little, mundane, and at times boring

steps that will transform our dreams and goals into reality.

If it is a million dollars or a certain weight it is by planning

and executing the little steps that the GOAL is reached.

Gang., we must keep putting one step in front of the other

and eventually we will reach our goal.

Believing in the possibilities I wish you all the best.

Why not? Why not be positive.

Why not go the extra mile for someone else.

Why not do just a little more.

Why not expect more from yourself.

Why not remember that we live in this

the greatest country in the world.

Why not dream big.

Why not accomplish big.

So I ask you Why not?

and Why not you?

On Goals, Dreams, and Miles.

Come And Enjoy The Water!

Recently we have talked about goal setting.

Have you added some travel to your goals??

In our planning calendar I have been told

there is a cruise to Mexico. There is a trip

to Texas (Austin for some big to do SXSW)

Hell I would have gone for the BBQ at Franklin

BBQ and would have enjoyed waiting in line.

Also the possibility of spending some time

in Seattle (Comme to Papa Clam Chowder)

I am looking forward to many great walks

and maybe a few good pictures. The one that

I am featuring on this blog was taken at

Little Corona in Corona Del Mar, CA

One of the most amazing places I have

been to.

I guess what I am trying to say is: Get after it

Yes we want to lose the weight but we have

a life to live as well.

Gang I hope your plans and goals are solid

and important enough for you to have put

them on paper and ever-present.
