Saturday morning in Orlando and gorgeous day - sun is shining brightly, blue
skies, and perfect day for a run -- temperature 71º with a high prediction of
78º. Day 17 of my Paleo Whole 30 Plan, my Sciatica is clearing up and both
my wonderful Physical Therapist and I are surviving. I am a bookworm and
although I love certain active sports (e.g. tennis), I have always hated exercise
and gyms... Yes, I have tried. Well, my physical therapist has a lot of different
ideas and the few times each week when we meet, she has me exercising like
there is no tomorrow :) And no, while we have not got to jumping jacks yet,
we are pretty close.
Sort of a fun morning as we drive over to a Relay Race where one of my
daughters will do her best to run her 6 miles of the race. Thankful it is my
daughter in that race and not me. I also marvel when I think of ActiveRain
Barbara Todaro -- she is so successful and works faithfully at diet and
exercise. It is unbelievable her efforts and success -- be it exercise, diet and
weight/body fat control. Oh, and I almost forgot the Barbells. There is a
terrific picture of Barbara in the gym lifting and holding the heavy barbells.
Fantastic, Barbara! You are a great mentor and example.
Well, off to the races and happy it is not me running those 6 miles. Have a
great weekend. ~ Jane

"It's a terrible thing, I think in life to wait until you're ready. I have this
feeling that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost
no such thing as ready.
There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now
is as good a time as any." ~Hugh Laurie

"What we experience is our own concept of things. That is why no two people
see quite the same world, and why, in many cases, different people see such
different worlds. To put it another way, we make our own world by the way
in which we think; for we really do live in a world of our own thoughts."

"Try, try, and try, and keep on trying is the rule that must be followed

and learning from failure." ~Colin Powell
