Hi Journal & Friends,
Today is a "Do It Anyway" kind of day. Woke up tired... went back to sleep. Woke up again, still pooped.
But the new Kitty said "WAKE UP AND PLAY WITH ME, I'M ALL ALONE!!" So, I dragged my sorry behind out of bed, got coffee, waved the laser toy around to leech out some of her pent up energy so she would slow down to at least a Lightening Streak. Hopefully, Butterfly and the new Kid will be buds soon... and here I sit at the computer.
Here is The Streak... streaking across the bed with a toy in her mouth:

It's already 1pm Oregon time. I made a commitment today to stop talking about my walking program, and start DOING it. And so I shall. Whether I feel like it or not. I know that afterwards, I will be glad I did.
I had planned to talk about my latest stumble, and what I learned from it... but that will keep for tommorrow. I want to be genuine here, and not just pump out filler.
So today I will be consistent in my actions, regardless of how I "feel". I know that in time, those little consistencies will add up.
Today is just a small, average, "do it anyway" day in the neighborhood.
Off to do my walking.
From Dr Phil's book: "Whatever the situation, you can choose your reaction."
My verse for today: "Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name."
My quote for today: "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is is raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter either. Then 'willpower' will be no problem." --Emil Zatopek
Enjoy the Journey,
