It's what I do.

Texas or Colorado sky

Its sunny and cool in San Marcos. I look above me and it nothing but blue blue blue skies and scattered clouds. Feels good to have that over my head than anything else. It truly does overpower the metaphoric stuff thats hovering when I look up to our Texas sky. It reminds me alot of Colorado. :) I would love to head out to Co sometime soon. good memories, maybe I'll see you soon.

T minus 5 days, 19 hrs

I'm sitting here at my desk, listening to my AC and wishing it were the rain. Actually, I'm thankful for the AC, b/c last week and like many weeks b4 it was like a sauna in here. UGH! thanks to good staff, they fixed it! woo!

But I sit here, knowing that next week, this very moment, I would have, God Willing, finished my first Half Marathon. I learned, according to my PA cousin, that our bodies shouldn't be running that far, or at least 26.2 miles. I'm running half that, and I know that if my mind can run it, and my legs and lungs are willing - I'll touch ribbon. Big goal is that I'm going to finish. It doesn't matter if I have to take little breaks but in reality, I'm going to need it. Turtle pace, smiling (mostly) and I'll get there.

We'll all get there. Whatever race you're running, go at your own pace, speed it up when you are ready and and knock it out.

Keepin' it simple, (or at least doing my best)

Glass and glasses

A quote from Winstin Churchill, "If you feel like you are going through hell, keep going." Learned today he lived as an optimist. Somehow, I felt that. If that glass of yours is half empty, refill it or get a new glass. Get a new glass, a new lens to look through. Eventually we see things, people, topics and ideas so differently.

No Soda November...

I agreed to No Soda November with one of my students. We finished strong and by Nov 30th, we agreed to take it a little further. I said till New Years and she said, "Boss, we can go further than that, c'mon now!" So, I couragously said, "Check out day....May 14th (or 15th)!) We had witnesses and shook on it.

So far it has been good, but I have my moments when I just want a lil' taste of some cherry coke :) It's so tempting and easy to fill up your Ice Cup with a Bubbly Sparkling drink of Cherry Coke from the Dining Hall. But I won't. Takes too long to put back all the water that soda has dehydrated me with, and I rather not drink my calories and chew on something real good :) Now, I will sniff me some soda (that sounded horrible) and get my little fix, but I just decided I don't want that in my system. Icks Nay on the syrupy carmel color stuff and just get me some water or Diet Powerade (my own mix).

Big decision to follow through on.

Reduce the type of calories you injest and that allows your body to work on improved fuel, instead of the uncessary.

Be Good,
