Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.
So I'm back on the road to exercise and I just hope I can keep it up. I do like exercising but I had pretty much stopped for the most part when I got sick and getting back to it hasn't been easy. You don't realize how quickly you can get out of shape. 10 minutes on the elliptical and I thought my heart was going to explode. I loved going to American Health Fitness and I will still go there some but my work schedule and their hours were not good together so last week I went and up and joined Planet Fitness. So far I love it. The people are friendly and the equipment new. The atmosphere is very pleasant to work out in and I love the massage chairs and hydro bed. They also have this machine called a beauty angel that shakes you for a 12 minute work out. I don't know if it actually does anything but I think it's fun. Says it takes 90 days of use to really see any noticeable improvement using it. Planet fitness is open twenty-four seven and they have them all over the US so I shouldn't have any excuses for not going. I also am eager for old man weather to get nice so I can start my walking again. I love walking and thinking. It's one of the best ways to clear the mind. Oh and before I forget Planet Fitness has tanning beds. I can tan while I'm there too. I'm excited for this summer and this new year. So many promises of good things to come. So watch for my journey to play out. I'll keep you all in the loop. Also anyone wanting to check out planet fitness let me know I can take you for free. Back to fitness I go.
Who doesn’t have a few lemons in their life and no I’m not going to tell you to make lemonade, often it takes a much stronger drink than that to face some of life’s challenges, but we all have them and sitting around wallowing in self-pity does absolutely no one any good.It never solves anything and as a matter of fact I believe it often makes things much worse than they need be. The smart people in this world… the happy ones focus on the positives in their lives and not the negatives. Instead of sitting around thinking about all that is going wrong and how it’s going to get worse try to think about what is going right and how to help improve those things that are going wrong.I have known both types of people in my life.The most amazing person I ever knew was my uncle Roger.He, although I know he probably had his times, lived his life to the fullest and didn’t let his ailment get him down.Then there is my mom.She exercises daily and tries to live as normal a life as she can and rarely complains although her hands shake constantly now and it’s hard for her to do the simplest task like use the rest room without help or feed herself.Her smile is always there and her love of God and life are too.Then there is a girl I know that is looking at jail time because her teenage daughter skipped school and called off claiming to be her mom.Now there is an injustice of stupidity.She’s an amazing person too.She picks herself up as life challenges her and trust me it’s challenged her a lot in the last few years.I know so many people who look at people who are smiling and laughing and they are envious of their lives because they assume those people are living the charmed life, well they probably aren’t.There is hardship for everyone in life.It’s the way it is.Deal with it.If you need help, ask for it.If you can’t pick yourself up as long as you’re willing to try there is usually someone or a group of people that are willing to help pick you back up if they can.So cheer up.So what if life dealt you lemons.Get some vodka and add to it… No really booze isn’t the answer, but do make the best of it you can and if you can’t, get help.It’s there if you want it. So life dealt you lemons…Meh.
