I just found out that my new place of employment has a “fitness center”! That pretty much takes away every single excuse that I have left, that is, unless I want to resort to the pathetic excuses such as “I just painted my nails” or “I can’t exercise after eating, I will get a cramp. ” Tomorrow I am going to go check out the fitness center, that is my next step in the process, see what wonderful tools of terror they have to offer. I don’t want to have to loosen up my buttons unless there is a really good reason to do so!
TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT…
You have a choice in life, you can either choose to stay where you are at or you can take a risk. I personally have decided that I am through sitting back and allowing life to pass me by. I am taking the risks. I know that I will probably walk into that fitness center and feel a bit intimidated by all of the “hardbodies” that have been going there regularly, I have to keep in mind that 6 months from now, I will be one too. Take positive risks in life…I say this as I am scanning over the requirements to possibly become a reserve police officer….
Smile more, regret less AND GET OUT THERE AND LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST!
I woke up at 6:00 a.m. and decided that today was the day, I needed to take three FEMA exams to qualify as an official emergency worker and after spending time with fellow CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) members yesterday, I knew it was now or never. I plowed my way right through the online study guides and slammed out each exam. It took me 11 hours due to a few computer glitches but I reached my goal and have my Certificates!
It is time to set some new goals and get down and dirty serious about accomplishing them…here they are…
It is time to quit screwing around and get down to my weight-loss goal. I keep bouncing up and down like a see-saw and it is time just to stop making excuses about why I can’t get there. At this time I will have to ask the makers of Three Olives Bubble Gum and Cake Vodka to halt production while I go dry. Please pull this shit off of the shelves for a while, while I dive toward my goal. My deadline is 6 months from now, my 44th birthday in October.
Finish out the Citizen’s Police Academy – ends early June.
Pass my HAM Radio Operator’s test next month…I don’t see this as a problem.
Become a CERT Captain (I needed my FEMA certificates so, I am on my way).
Sell my Juke and purchase a new Ford Explorer…yes, if I am going to be an emergency volunteer, I want my ride equipped with a mobile HAM radio and I want room to transport anything I might need to kill zombies if that is what it comes down to. I think this is usually best if rolling on 20′s as well…just saying.
Work on not allowing men to hurt my feelings or make me feel like I can’t accomplish something – this is a real hinderance for me and I am determined to adopt a stfu attitude toward this instead of letting it cut to my very soul.
Catch up on reading your blogs!!!
Wishing you all a great week and much happiness! Smile more, regret less.
