No Clue what you did this weekend, but

I hope you did something worth talking about.

Do not forget that while we are working on

loosing weight and getting healthier, there is a big

amazing world out there, and that we have a life to live.

The purpose of being healthier, and lighter, and stronger

is so we can live longer, better lives. Wile working for

that goal do not forget to do some living.

It is Monday. Start planning some living.

There is beauty. Everywhere.

IMG_1141A walk on the beach is nice.

A walk on the mountain is refreshing.

A walk on the desert is interesting.

Then again all walks are good.

Why, and how we go about it, well that is

a whole different thing.

Be positive, be strong, and always enjoy

the place where your feet take you.

Beauty and uniqueness can be found

everywhere so pay attention and find it.

Gang stay focus and remain successful.

 

Dare, dare to step outside.

 

IMG_1138What will we discover when we step

out of the common, comfortable, familiar?

I have found that interesting things, places,

and people are found all around us when we

pay attention and dare step out.

We are past the first half of the year;

I hope your goals and plans are on track,

I hope that as you work through the process

of losing the weight, and making for a healthier

life, don’t waste the opportunity to enjoy, and live,

live fully. Step out of the comfort and the familiar.

Take a risk and go find something new, something

different and interesting., if it is new it will be worth it.

Stay focus remain successful.

Every Now And Then.

IMG_1102While I am all for going forth and taking

any and all the necessary extra steps, I also

believe that we should take any breaks and stops

needed for us to remain sane and centered.

To be successful full effort and commitment

should be put forth but attention should be paid

so we do not destroy by over-doing.

Take a break every now and then.

Go somewhere and enjoy something.

To me there is no better place than the beach,

and no better time than sunset. Talk about a magic

cleansing moment. Perspective I guess.

Gang figure out what works for you and

and use it for your growth.

Moments.

 

DSC_0747To share, to admire something amazing

with those that we love is great.

I have had the luck to share with my kids

of many a thing.  With Daniel my oldest it

was always Christmas. Boy did we go overboard.

With my young kids now, it is the water. River, Ocean,

beach, lake.  We all love the water.

My wife and I continuously look for excuses to take

day trips, and weekend trips, and any trips we can.

I then insert my walks and my work outs as best as I can.

This is not always easy and it does not always work but

we sure do try to make it work.

Figure out what works for you, what doesn’t.

Gang, make it work. figure it out and go forth.

Where have your walks taken you?

 

DSC_0013Where have your walks taken you?

I went for a long walk in Yuma, AZ.

This is the Colorado River, and at the end

of that bridge is California.

What a great day that was.

So great that keeping our exercise

commitments can also reward us by

taking us to great places and get us in touch

not just with our selves, but also with nature

and other kindred spirits.

Keeping our commitments makes us stronger

physically and also in character.

Gang, keep your word always to others but

specially to your self.

Push hard for those that depend on you but

push harder for yourself.

Make a difference for others but specially

make a difference for yourself.

Stay focus and remain successful.

DNA the history of us.

DNA MAPThis is the picture that my DNA paints.

I have to say it is nothing like I was expecting

based on what my family shared. Not good or bad

just unexpected.

This picture as extensive in time and depth is

but a tiny part of what me, you, us are.

The day to day life we construct tells more

about us than any DNA test could. What is the

fiber of our character, what are the values we

live-by, how important family and friends are.

And there is so much more. Here we talk about

weight loss and health a lot but at the same time

I make it a point to acknowledge life and living.

Regardless of where we came from the fact remains

that we are trying to effect change and by making

better choices we might live longer, healthier lives.

Gang, stay focus and remain successful.
