QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

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
                                                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~  

 

"The purpose of our lives is to be happy."                                          ~Dalai Lama

"The mere sense of living is joy enough."                                    ~Emily Dickinson

"We can only be what we give ourselves the power to be."
                                                                                       ~Native American Proverb

"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

"The speed of the boss is the speed of the team."                         ~Lee Iacocca

"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."
                                                                                                              ~Emmet Fox

"There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late."

                                                                                                         ~Og Mandino
"Try, try, and try, and keep on trying is the rule that must be followed
to become an expert in anything.                                        ~W. Clement Stone

"There are no secrets to success.  It is the result of preparation, hard work,
and learning from failure."                                                            ~Colin Powell

"Always do your best.  What you plant now, you will harvest later."
                                                                                                          ~Og Mandino

I have been listening to some Brian Buffini podcasts when I walk my dog in the morning - he loves Og Mandino - I think I need to read more of his writings.

Hi Jane Chaulklin-Schott thank you so much for the mention.... I enjoy every minute of being in the gym.... you need to find something you love to do and you'll do it forever and improve every day.... 

I enjoyed all of your quotes... and I'm happy to hear your sciatica condition is improving and you're watching what you eat.

Jane,

We agree Barbara Todaro is an inspiration to us all.  My favorite two of your selection are:

"The purpose of our lives is to be happy."                                          ~Dalai Lama

"The mere sense of living is joy enough."                                    ~Emily Dickinson

Hi Jane - the success of Barbara Todaro in and away from the gym is based on knowledge, always improving and consistency in her efforts.  As far as your quote selection, I especially like the one you chose to include by Colin Powell:  

"There are no secrets to success.  It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure."

Morning Jane.

I get tired just reading about what Barbara does on a daily basis.  That reminds me, it's about time for a nap

Hugh and Og nail it! (at all times)

Sensei Barbara is a beast! Powerful and beautiful.

I write down everything I plan to eat, and what I do eat daily. Mindfulness.

Also written on the list - WATER - EXERCISE - NO SNACKS! LOL

I am nowhere near Barbara in discipline or activity . . . but I do relish the energy-clearing effects of my recumbent bike, weight machine in my garage . . . and going to the beautiful track with my weights, walking, running and downloading the stupid of the day. LOL

Good morning Jane. Must say winter is showing in Chicago today with wind chill temps below zero. As for my favorite quote:

"Always do your best.  What you plant now, you will harvest later."

I like that one, Jane!
