DSC_0042

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.

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.

The Real.

DSC_0061What is hot?  What is fast?

What is stylish? What is the it thing?

The answer is: It depends.

The same thing happens when it comes

to us. To diet, weight loss, appearance, etc.

It is about what is right for US. What is

appropriate and adequate for us.

Don’t let the flashy or trendy affect the process

you have delineated for yourself.

Keep it up and have an impact on your world.

The Love Of Click!!

I got the love of the still image from my father.

He carried a camera and in the later part of his

life he carried a tape recorder as well.

There are many a picture left that he took

of the family and it makes me realize just

how much happiness it brought him.

I know that there are two pictures in particular

that always put a simile on my face.

One is of my younger sister and myself

on the back of an old Chevy truck eating an

ice cream cone. The other is a picture of me

sitting by a fountain. Both pictures are Black

and white and remind me principally of my

father who has moved on but also of a different

time in life where the mortgage, weight loss and

many other things were not a problem… To Me.

Find something you love and enjoy it as you

continue to work on your goals and dreams.

Pleasure.

I took this picture series at an ungodly hour

and it was a most memorable night.

Doing something we are passionate about

enjoying something we long to do is so great.

In my younger years I was a runner and I loved it

maybe because it was an alone endeavor as I am not

one for crowds or gangs or cliques.

Running helped me clear my mind and separate

my thoughts. I had this fixation on girls and money

and they were in direct opposition as both demanded

my time and attention.

Running and riding my bicycle kept me trim so weight

loss was never an issue or problem for me.

I enjoy my photography a lot I think the only thing

that could compete with that would be eating new stuff.

I love restaurants specially good ones but I hate when

a restaurant screwed up a simple dish or great ingredient.

I hope and want for people to be respectful of food. So much

is said of the culture and traditions in simple every day dishes.

I have learned to enjoy food from all over and maybe that is why

I miss Phoenix and Los Angeles so much. There is the possibility

of so many different meals. My favorite restaurant meals at this

point and time are: Vietnamese Pho at unPhogettable in Mesa, AZ

Their #5 Pho Tai, Nam, Gan is amazing.

And my second favorite is the Friend Chicken at Magnolias

restaurant in historic Charleston, SC.

Pleasure, nothing but pleasure.

Gang do not forget to live and enjoy this short life of ours.

Go and do something you love. LIVE MORE!!
