A Clean, Fresh Slate Again

Here we are, starting the “ber” months. Debates about Pumpkin Spice will flood the airways, and I will love getting out my hoodies, sweatshirts, and jeans. It’s meant to be! I love living where there are seasons. Sure, it gets too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Since it’s all I know, I’m not sure what it would be like to be one season all twelve months.

Weather balance is a good way to describe it. Being retired, we don’t have to go anywhere. It can snow all it wants. I remember the days when if we didn’t get to work, we didn’t get paid or had to take a vacation day. Dad gave us the example of never missing work unless you were very sick.

In another re-start on my Keto journey, I’m making a “resolution” for September. 30 days should give me a jumpstart since I’ve been at a plateau for more than six months. Time to get real.

No added sugar.

No alcohol.

No bread.

Eat lots of veggies.

Eat a reasonable amount of fruit.

Lots of protein.

To focus on my personal mission of helping Veterans and to support our Police Officers, I vow to do this every day:

22 Wall Push Ups

Bike 22 minutes a day

Do 71 squats a day to remind myself of the Veterans who die by suicide every day. The total for 30 days will be about 2200 for the month.

By committing to these things, I’m reminded of the commitment made by our military and our first responders. My 69 year old knees, back, legs and hips will benefit from the activity, and my mind will become more focused and creative. And the thing of it is, I’m stating it to the public. To all of you. To my friends and readers. We’ll have to check in on my progress. Thanks in advance for keeping me on track. Let’s do this!

Join me. It’ll be fun. Think outside of yourself. Help others. You’ll feel better for it. I’m off to do my biking. Taking Mom to the doctor later. Hope you have a beautiful day today. Let’s see each other tomorrow. Thank you.
