Thursday - let the weekend countdown begin!

Thursday, May 27, 2010

I love Thursday/ It is the jumping off point for the weekend countdown. I can actually SEE Friday from here. Although the weekend seems to be the most difficult time for sticking to healthy lifestyle choices. I have a wedding this weekend, so it will be especially tough. There will be open bar and food galore from what I understand so I will need a little willpower. The alcohol isn't the problem, it is all the "snacky" types of foods that will be abundantly available.

This weekend is Memorial Day, which is pretty reflective for me. I volunteer with the organization "Soldier's Angels" and have adopted a soldier that I write to weekly and send care packages to. Regardless of your thoughts on the war, if you desire to make a difference in someone's life I urge you to check out their website:
www.soldiersangels.org/
There are currently 1031 individuals waiting to be "adopted" which consists of a letter a week and a care package a month. I have met so many wonderful people through this organization and the power of hearing your name called at mail call is indescribable. Many of these soldiers do not have a support system at home and a single letter can brighten someone's day.
