Sick on Sunday
Sick on Sunday - I refuse to let it move into Monday. Woke up with sore throat, ear ache, stuffed head. I figured I better get Ki out early for some exercise or it wouldn't happen, so we headed to Powell Butte for about a 50 minute hike. We finally took the Mt. Hood trail and discovered it is beautiful but rather short (the billions of fallen yellow leaves on the trail was just breathtaking). It hooked up to the Cedar Grove trail to lengthen it a bit but still not much distance. I think I know this park well enough now that I will try out the directions in my trail running book again and see if I can do the loop twice for a 7 mile run. I felt better being out in the open air but still cruddy, too. Glad to get out of there before the rain started falling.
It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. - James Gordon, M.D.
Pokey was a dog that lived in a house with an invisible fence...he finally learned his boundaries, due to the pain of the fence. What he didn't realize was that if he could just endure the temporary pain..he could have the world to roam! - Dr. Tom Barrett What are your invisible boundaries? You have to be uncomfortable for awhile to get the body you want.
Everything counts. Every minute of exercise you put in. Every time you resist the urge to mow down the chocolate or chips or pastries. It counts. Nothing is neutral. It all counts. Every decision you make is moving you toward your goal or away from it. Great transformations are made one decision at a time. The decision you make today, right now, will create your future and the beginning of a new past. It all counts. You have the power to make a better decision, the right decision. Make your next decision and every one thereafter knowing it counts, it matters, and move yourself, inch yourself, just one bit closer to your goal. It is the way of leaders and champions. They know everything counts. - David Greenwalt
