Keep on keepin' on

I don't know why but I have been in a funk the last three days. The weather, my pain, and lack of weight loss all have contributed to make me feel the blues. I prayed the other night for a change of attitude, and the weather broke and our foot... Read more

Stay positive

Gee, it seems like life is trying to bring me down. My knees hurt like heck. I wasn't able to get out the other day to get my cortisone shots, my car is still snowed in the garage, the guy who plows my 1/4 mile driveway, had mechanical problem... Read more
Don't Quit
Monday, January 06, 2014      6 comments

Someone gave me this poem some time ago, and I feel the need to start looking at it daily again! I received this from a friend when I belonged to TOPS years ago, and it kept me on point. Now I think I need to remind myself again! DON'T QU... Read more

Well, the New Year is here. Seems we have gotten too old to party out the old year, and ring in the new. We were in bed by 10:30! We started the New Year by going to Mass. We have a priest from India, and he had a friend from India and asked... Read more
Good bye 2013
Friday, December 27, 2013      6 comments

This year has been a bummer for me with multiple health issues, most from by bad knees. I believe that I might have turned the corner with attitudes, now all I need to do is get the actions going. I am happy that I have come back here. I made... Read more
Merry Christmas
Wednesday, December 25, 2013      3 comments

Merry Christmas to one and all. Too often I dwell on the negatives of my life, too heavy, can't move, hurt all the time, etc. However, last night after Midnight Mass, I came home and couldn't sleep and thought about the positives of my life. ... Read more

Oops, I overdid it!
Thursday, December 19, 2013      5 comments

Well, I was afraid I overdid it yesterday, and I think I did. My left knee is so swollen, and sore. However, I pushed through the pain to get my 30 minutes of walking in. We are supposed to have 3 days of rain coming, and I hate rainy weather... Read more
First day at the gym after two and a half years!

A friend of mine suggested that I use the weight machines at the gym that I have been paying for a membership for the last 4 years but haven't used in over 2 1/2 years. I have been trying to motivate myself for the last 2 months to make that f... Read more
There is no place like home!
Sunday, December 15, 2013      5 comments

After a weird drive to the Lake of the Ozarks through an ice storm, and two solid days of meetings, and finally the drive home today, I am so happy to be home. I had to drop my wife off to do a Clown gig at the KofC hall in Cuba, and their park... Read more
Hump day!
Wednesday, December 11, 2013      1 comments

Well I knew that there would be days like this. I just can't get motivated, and I keep goofing up on so many silly things. I think I should have stayed in bed. My goal for this week is to get back to the gym. I have been paying for a members... Read more
Accentuate the positive
Monday, December 09, 2013      6 comments

I was reading a church publication today, and the subject of accentuating the positive was brought up and I realized how important that is for us on this journey. It is too easy to beat ourselves up when we slide backwards or make bad food choi... Read more
better week than I thought!
Sunday, December 08, 2013      2 comments

Well, I dreaded getting on the scale this morning, but the scale was my friend today! I haven't had the energy that I usually have so I didn't anticipate much loss if any. However, after a gain of twp pounds last week, I lost them plus 3.6 lbs... Read more

Well, its Friday, snowing, and I shoveled snow for over 30 minutes and I hurt like heck! But work is almost done for the day. I work at home on Fridays which are good and bad. When I go to the office, I can pack my meals and stick to my diet.... Read more
