"The only things in your control are your thoughts and then your actions. Positive, powerful thoughts lead to positive, powerful actions, and when done with repeated consistency this cycle leads to greatness. Dream it! Pray for it! Believe it! Work for it! And then be ready when it happens." Greg Werner (Strength & Conditioning Coach)
Play Out Update: Day three complete. Why does it seem like so much longer? I love that every class is so different I haven't had the same set of muscles sore so far. Dave lent me a book, Becoming a Supple Leopard by Dr. Kelly Starrett, The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance. I've been checking it out and I did order one for myself. I've always enjoyed understanding how the body functions. This book is awesome. I can also put names to the various sore muscles and identify ways to stretch or "mash" them. Sweet! I feel excellent in spite of the traveling tendernesses. It's hard to explain... I just feel solid?, grounded?, less tippy?... boy that's official language if I ever heard it! The current tender area is the Teres Major from overhead press and practicing to do handstand push-ups. Yes, you read that right... handstand fucking push-ups, a handstand leaning on a wall then a push up! Holy Shit that's fucking awesome! NOTE: I've decided to "fast" on Tuesday and Thursdays starting next week. I will intentionally and consciously incorporate this into my schedule.
Journaling Update: I'm going to take a stab at summarizing. I attended my first business meeting as GSR for the Weekend Brunch Bunch. Part of the position description is to facilitate the meeting. There are 4 separate meetings so there is a disparate group of members, 4 chairpersons, 2 coffee makers, etc. It went pretty well for a first time. Now that I know the people involved I'll utilize Robert's Rules. (That's fun two things to study... anatomy and Robert's rules!) And I ramble... bottom line I said something during the meeting that kept popping up in my thoughts later in the day and even the next day. There was also a situation with a fellow AA person from Christmas time that popped up in a similar way. I decided to journal about these two examples to figure out why my mind fixated on these situations... I don't have an exact answer but some interesting things they had in common worth considering:
Enough said for now! Enjoying the SNOW! +)

Did that make you feel better?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
