Happy Birthday to me!

At 9 something this morning, 37 years ago I came into this world rear first. :)

Today is the first day of my 37th year on this earth. To date I have had 13,140 days to make an impression on this world and everyone I have had contact with. Wow, that is a lot of opportunities to build someone up or tear someone down.

Beginning with today I have 365 days of this 37th year to make a difference, good or bad. As far as working out I have 365 opportunities to either do it or not, 365 opportunities to make excuses or get off my rear.

Also beginning with today I have 365 days of 5 meals per day to make either good choices or bad choices, that's 1,825 times I can choose a bacon double cheese burger and fries, or a grilled chicken salad with olive oil and vinegar.

Looking at it that way I can understand that I have a lot of opportunities to do the right thing for my body, or the wrong thing, which ever way you want to look at it, I choose the former.

I don't want to sit here at this computer 365 days from now and think, "What if I had only been more dedicated? What if I had been more disciplined? What would I look like and feel like physically and emotionally right now?"

That is toxic. Every day is a gift, and we get to unwrap it 365 times in 1 year. Make your gift be something you have always wanted!
