"Don't ask yourself what the world needs,
ask yourself what makes you come alive.
And then go and do that. Because
what the world needs
is people who have come alive."
Howard Washington Thurman
Today I bought new tennis shoes. That's what I call them, though I've never played tennis. They are hot pink. I'm considering them "fun" instead of odd. That was the only color they came in and they felt great--Ecco's Biom line. And yes, those are bright yellow laces.
I may be turning into one of those Kooky 45+ year old women. . .
This was also my weigh day. I lost 1.6 pounds this week. And that makes me ready to make some commitments. I'm scared about it, because I don't really trust myself. . . but I know what I need to do to help myself follow through. So here is the plan. . .
First and foremost, I need to make sure I get to bed between 10 and 10:30--on the earlier side the better. If I get to bed after then, then it's really hard to want to get up and go at 6 for me.
Next, I am planning out some exercises for the week (Jack, how many times did you have to say it?) I'm not going to be wimpy about my commitments:
Monday: Walk at work (somewhere between 2 and 4) and walk in the evening before The Closer comes on or while watching The Closer. I'll walk at least 20 minutes both times.
Tuesday: Walk in the morning with the dog and walk at work (between 2 and 4). I'll walk at least 20 minutes both times.
Wednesday: Go to the pool in the morning. Go to the Silver Comet Trail with the dog after dinner.
Thursday: Same as Tuesday.
Friday we're traveling to CA. I'm sure we'll be walking around San Fran that afternoon & evening. I bet my pink tennis shoes won't stand out too much there. . .
