101 Ideas in 1001 days September 1, 2010

Filed under: Organization — alwayswithme @ 9:44 am

I saw this idea on a blog I visited in the middle of the night last night (couldn’t sleep).  When I figure out who is was I will give the link.  The general idea is to list 101 things you want to do in the next 1001 days.  This will obviously have the be a work in progress; both the ideas and the accomplishments.  Should be fun though and it is good for me to have a purpose.  So, in no particular order or significance. . .

Today I Am 52

Filed under: Dates to remember,Explanations,Health,Uncategorized,Weight Loss — alwayswithme @ 9:02 am

Today is my birthday (52 years old) and I am so disappointed in myself for not “having it all together” by now and by how out of shape I’ve continued to get myself. Get not let, because I have chosen all along what to eat and do. No one forced me. I’ve let my focus issues, my depression issues and my life issues lead me around rather than writing my own life script.

This year I hope to “get it together”;   it  being:

  • my weight
  • my waist
  • my resting heart rate
  • my blood pressure
  • my cholesterol readings
  • my C reactive protein level
  • my fasting blood sugar level
  • my home
  • my hobbies
  • and my exercise
