WILLLOSEIT's CalorieKing blog

Friday, Nov 2 2007 - random thoughts for a friday

View WILLLOSEIT's food & exercise for this day

i haven't been here
for a few days
just busy
you know how that goes?

lost 3 pounds this week
doing well
like what i see
love how i feel
the snail
moved a bit quicker this week
making up for lost time
i suppose
fabulous,
just fabulous

have a job interview
next week
something i am not
really interested in
a new career
insurance sales
get my licenses
work my own hours
do seminars
i don't know
if it's right for me
but i will go
it's a good company
so that counts
it counts a lot

spent time with my parents
yesterday
all day
left my house at 7 am
got home at 9 pm
took them to the doctor
a new doc
closer to their home
nice man
nice staff
good move
more tests
always,
more tests

took dad
to the bank
and shopping
he is frail now
i hate to see it
always
so physically strong
a life of manual labor
the best kind though
and now
he has to hold the cart
just to walk through the store
aging
the great equalizer
perhaps

today
we head back up
to hyde park
to see fdr's home
to walk in the crisp sunshine
a perfect
autumn day
finally
we'll enjoy a meal
i will indulge
it's friday
i weighed in
a great weigh in
i feel great
oh i told you already
but i am so happy
about it
i can't help myself

the world
is on edge though
crazy fears
irrational fears
some of them
terrorists
oil prices
fed rate
mortgages
the stock market
unsettled
by the madness
of the unknown
of tomorrow
and what it will bring
i am glad i am not
retired
needing the income
from investments
that aren't doing too well
today
because of fear
i will not worry
not today
just not today

a storm
now a hurricane
again
threatens
the northeast
to some degree
for the weekend
so i am glad
we're traveling today
and not tomorrow
don't like the wind
when you are in a car
on a country road
surrounded by trees
now that's a reason
to be afraid
at least
during the storm

ralph needs new glasses
the doctor told him
this morning
he has to read a lot
on the computer screen
every night
putting the paper
to bed
his eyes
so red
from the small type
about the yankees
and the joes
the sports news
in ny this week
killing his eyes
bothering his eyes
a lot
lately
aging
not like my dad
but enough
to make him feel old
at least his eyes

as for me
i see clearly
right now
a good road
ahead of me
more weight to lose
and inches too
i am excited
about my prospects
and being thinner
and faster
and full
of life
and energy
oh the possibilities
seem endless now
for the snail
who occasionally
has a rabbit week
to help
keep the faith
and this journey
going
forever and a day
ah, yes
i will

have a wonderful day..

:clap: for a 3 lb loss. You are inspiring me! I think the media loves to keep us in a perpetual state of fear...as Michael Crichton says in his book of the same name...they have to sell newspapers and keep people tuned to the tv/radio, etc. The whole MRSA thing is a perfect example, or the storm system coming up the coast...a million examples really. Your day with your parents sounds wonderful...they're so lucky to have a wonderful daughter to spend time with them. Congratulations, again, on the weight loss this week! :love:
